        What if it was just used to get DNA easily because it’s ability to copy DNA, or as like a buffer to speed up experiments. I like the theory I’m just pointing out Ditto could have a lot of uses in any kind of genetic experiment

            But ditto did get stuff wrong. Hands and eyes for the people. I didnt pay attention on the pokemon. If something was wrong on them.

                    Mew can transform from memory too, in the lucario movie.

                      Ditto was on that PokéCrank the aipom got into in the beginning of the movie.

                              Ditto is the failled experiment of Mewtwo what took you so long to figure that out I have known this for years

                                  I thought this theory was disproven by The Pokémon Company themselves?

                                      This was also my theory, that ditto was a failed experiment of Mew.

                                        Not a super ditto... a DittoTwo!

                                          Personally I like the theory that Ditto is the genetic decedent of Mew. And they used his DNA to splice into the sample of mew DNA the original researchers in Kanto, as seen in Pokemon the first movie, found to create Mewtwo.

                                          I just like this better because we've never seen a reference to Ditto coming into existence 20 years ago. It also seems like the first time Ash encounters Ditto is before the events of the first movie, again I think making it more likely the Ditto existed before they started their research. I think there's even a scene when they discover the Mew DNA and there's a Ditto next to it. The implication being that they are naturally drawn to mew.

                                                  I always thought ditto was more of a clone of mew than mewtwo

We love you Matpat, we've been watching for a long time (Mainly Daxter), we should have subbed a long time ago. Because of you, Daxter goes deep into the game that formed the base for our channel with his own insane theories. Its inspired him to make videos theories about things he is passionate about without losing the love he has for them no matter how dark theories can sometimes get. Your amazing and we cant stop watching. (Comment posted on behalf of one member so [we] is possibly used loosely. Think its obvious which member posted this now but I dont care, I love you 😂✌🏼)

                                                        Idk why I’m watching this. I liked the detective pikachu movie but I only know the bare minimum of Pokémons

                                                          What if the reason Dittos couldn't hold a form from memory was because they were children? Mini dito in the anime issues even when a reference was right in front of them. 20 years later not only has technology advanced but what if the Dittos themselves the others the Wild Ones have become better.

                                                            Ditto can morph into humans in Sun and Moon, the fact it can do that in the movie is canon.

So like Pikachu and dudes Dad what if Meowth is a human trapped in a Meowth? Team Rockets leader was behind Mewtwos creation so what if when it escaped he put a Human into a Meowths body in the process and it joins Jessy and James after.
