        When you finally watch a movie to avoid spoilers for that one theory you wanted to watch.

          Or Dittos were used in the experiments with Mew's DNA. Or Ditto is the closest decendant of Mew and was useful in the Mewtwo experiments. Force dittos to transform with remnants of Mew DNA, use the results to breed hopeful Mew clone. Mewtwo is a failed clone of a failed Ditto Mew Transformation.

              The parts wrong are the eyes and mouth

                only problem i found is that they called back to the cartoon version of ditto with the eyes which was a problem with that ditto- no other ditto has that problem and if that is in fact a super ditto it shouldnt have the problem of transforming its eyes....

                      Actually the Ditto was transforming into the Pokemon that 'TIM' had seen prior to his fight with the Ditto meaning the Ditto would have to have psychic abilities.

                            It occurs to me that this means we could see a 30 year old Ash in a Detective Pikachu sequel. Either that, or he'd still just be 10.

                                    While I do believe this theory I don't think this is a good explanation
                                    Since ditto is not the only "genetic experiment" in this movie
                                    For example the powered up greninja and torterra

                                            If the ditto transforms by memory it will get things wrong mainly the eyes as in the past movies and anime’s

                                                Well, technically every pokemon is made out of the same genetic stuff that Mew is made out of since Mew is the genetic ancestor of all pokemon.

                                                  something about you screams fake. not quite sure what it is. maybe a combo of tone and manner in which it's delivered? not sure, but regardless, you seem like one seriously fucking fake person in everything i've seen you in or heard you narrate.

                                                      Uh, no, it still had the ditto dot eyes when transformed, it's why it's human disguises wear sunglasses. Without a model to copy, it's transformations are imperfect.

                                                          Small gripe. Using the original GB graphic and GBC game on screen. My brain doesn't know what to do.

                                                          And personally, I think they were breeding mew based on a remnant of dna. Most times the ditto would just make another ditto, but eventually they got close enough to make mewtwo.

The genetic testing he was doing wasn't necessarily related to mewtwo, or you would have to say that the Greninja the torterra are also related to mewtwo. It sounds like writers just talking but nothing was actually shown to prove or hint at any point you try to make.

                                                                                          • xArmaDeath

                                                                                              • mussolini

                                                                                                so i just wanted to say that i dont think ditto doesn't need to see something to turn into it. atleast not in the anime and here is why. In Ditto's Mysterious Mansion one of the duplica episodes she has her ditto turn into a cannon to finish off team rocket. the cannon team rocket used and the one ditto transformed into are completely different so ditto must have transformed into it from memory right?
