I rather need an army of Dittos of different natures, but capturing them is annoying what with their high levels and rare appearances.

Can I stick 2 Dittos in the Day Care and make new ones?

You know, you don't have to breed with Dittos to get the nature. Ever since HeartGold/SoulSilver if either parent is holding the everstone, their child inherits that Nature citation – tzenes Apr 6 '11 at 15:52
@tzenes I thought it was the Ditto or Female parent, but not Male non-Ditto parent. Even so, however, an army of various-natured Dittos will come in handy for future breeding as well. – StrixVaria Apr 6 '11 at 15:53
How I got my "ditto breeding army": bought Emerald version,spent 2days in the fossile maniacs cave on route 114, spent a week transfering them to Platinum->HG->Black – fschl Jul 12 '12 at 18:37

No, Dittos cannot breed with other Dittos.

sigh This game is really trying to make me waste a lot of my time. – StrixVaria Apr 6 '11 at 15:34
@Strix If you have a 4th gen game, it may be faster to farm a bunch from there and then just transfer them over. To recollection, the ones in D/P are pretty easy to catch and chain. – Grace Note Apr 6 '11 at 15:36

@Arkive They do look a little like amoebas... – Kevin Yap Apr 6 '11 at 17:26
@Raven Dittos are never created or destroyed, they only change form. Thus sayeth the Law of Conversation of Ditto. – Sapph Apr 7 '11 at 7:17
