How do you know when a Pokémon you caught is not a Ditto?

For all I know, your precious Arceus could just be a Ditto.

    Dittos cannot maintain their transformations indefinitely & Dittos generally retain their colors (as they can only mimic shapes).

    Additionally, when a Ditto is brought into combat (in terms of gameplay), it always starts in it's natural form & MUST use their Transform attack to mirror the pokemon they are facing.

    In non-gameplay situations, a Ditto could potentially fool a person as another pokemon TEMPORARILY... but time is NOT on Ditto's side here.

    Because, ditto has to use the move transform to turn into a pokemon, and it still has the name ditto. After you catch it, it turns back into ditto.

    When and if you catch a Pokemon and it transforms then it's a dido when you catch it it should turn back to a ditto
