Actually, Ditto doesn't have genders. They're genderless, like some of the legendaries. And to make matters worse, Ditto can only be found after the elite four. So, unless you are at the end of the game or you can trade, I wouldn't advise breeding yet. And as far as I know, if you want to breed that Torchic, it HAS to be a FEMALE.
Ignore zelfier and reread mine. Ditto is required to breed with a Male to get a starter.
The egg is always the same species as the mother, so if your Starter is a Female you can breed it with anything that is male and shares an Egg Group.
If Ditto is used it is the species of the Non-Ditto Parent This is Instrmental in Breeding Male only (Tauros, Hitmons) or Male Dominant Species (Starters, Eevee) and Genderless Species (Porygon, Magnemite/ton)
