It looks like the team behind Pokemon Go still has some surprises up their sleeves. There were a few problems this weekend, but many people suspect that the problems stem back to a release of "Shiny" Pokemon into the game, including the release of Ditto, the only original Pokemon that people haven't found in the game yet.

The history of Pokemon being "Shiny" is a bit difficult to explains. It refers to a Pokemon that appears are a specific color variant. It could be a Pokemon that is a few shades different from the original or it could be a drastic change.

These Pokemon have popped up in almost every Pokemon game since the start, and now the people at Silph Road have found that there are distinct values for "Default" and "Shiny" Pokemon. There aren't new files yet, the idea is that they could show up soon. Nothing can be confirmed of course and Niantic isn't saying anything, but we do know it is there.

There is also a ton of new information out there about Ditto - he is considered to be "encounterable" now. It is unknown how we can encounter him, but it unknown whether it will be in a future update or whether it is already there.

Ditto has always been a character that people want, so it is likely they will make some sort of event out of his appearance. This will likely bring some people back to the game. There will probably be a Quest with some sort of story tie-in to make everything relevant.
