What would happen if a ditto fought a ditto? Best answer Well, eventually, they would run out of attacks and have to use struggle so the one that starts using struggle 1st would win. Yes it would be kind of funny.

I want to point out that Ditto can transform by memory, according to the pokedex, however It manages to get details wrong. With enough training a ditto might be able to transform into anything by memory

​@Buttereo Getting that to work though is probably very, very difficult, if not just an inefficient use of time (limit approaches infinity type difficult)-----since as Matpat stated there are not ANY cases where any Ditto----trained or untrained have ever done that in the entire franchise (anime, game, etc)----you'd expect not one, but at least 2-3 of these special Ditto to exist if this was something you could feasibly 'simply train for.'

This is a classic theory, Ditto being failed Mew clones, and one I love. It's my personal headcanon. But I think one of the creators of the original games said that it was never an intention, just a lot of coincidences. And while the person who said this was primarily a composer, many of the small team who worked on those first games said that, due to the small team, every member was involved in every part of the game, composers would help out with coding and vice versa, so I think he still would have a lot of knowledge of the lore stuff.

@Jamie williams Valid point, although often times those handbooks aren't fact-checked by Nintendo. There've been ones in the past that say things like Nincada evolving into Ninjask OR Shedinja, rather than both, or confusing the names of Larvitar and Pupitar.

What if they was trying recreate mew and someone was like: "if mew genes have genes of all pokemons, lets take genes of all pokemons and combine them together" and it failed as shapeless purple goo with ability too transform in every other pokemon as mew do, and they was like: "nah, its don't really looks like a mew, so, lets just say that this is a new unknown pokemon and trow him away"

The whole "this ditto being a genetic experiment" doesn't seem to work because all of the Pokémon in that lab were genetic experiments with significantly stronger traits, so it isn't really too far fetched for them to just find a way to boost ditto's abilities

What if the ditto from the movie had the psychic abilities that mew and mewtwo had, so he would look into someone's memories and copy from that? This would eliminate the need for the pokemon or person to be present and explain why he chose cubone towards the end (cause of the one from the beginning).

So one of the fun theories I had read a long while back was trying to place every single Pokémon in a timeline and came up with Mew being the ancestor to most of not all non legendary/mythic ones. They were all over the planet and many of the Mew transformed into new species and just stayed that way which is also why Mew is so rare and can learn all the moves because it’s the ancestor to all Pokémon. Idk. Was a in theory hat used everything up to around Arceus

Pokémon Go also had a say in this when mew came out. One of the challenges before catching mew were to catch a bunch of Ditto because of their incredibly similar feature of shapeshifting. Seems like the professors know something we don’t.

The typing also kinda makes sense when you think about it. Mew and Mewtwo are both psychic type while Ditto is just normal type, because if ditto is in fact weaker then it won't have psychic abilities

The regular Ditto are failed clone attempts of Mew. The special Ditto from this movie is created from Mewtwo. But has it been created in a failed cloning experiment? Did they try to clone Mewtwo? Mewtwo is stronger than Mew. It is quite conceivable that a Ditto created from Mewtwo would be stronger than a Ditto created from a Mew, but there is no indication that they tried to clone Mewtwo. Has the Ditto been accidentally created during the attempts to distill Mewtwo's powers? Or was I created deliberately to serve the old man? If it was an accident, I doubt, the old man would have kept it. He would have thrown it away, either dismissed it into the wild or destroyed it. If he had kept it, then only as another specimen locked into his lab to experiment on, he hold not have made it his special partner.

pretty sure I've seen multiple theories on this before (waaaaaaay before.. like, back in 2015) proving this. it's also why Trubbish, Koffing, and (another I can't remeber) exist. they're failed attempts at mew that ended up bonding with trash/gas/clay I think. When you look at the evolutions of these pokemon, they look like multiple of the smaller ones mixed together in some way to create a bigger blob. Koffing to Wheezing is the most obvious, but Trubbish to Garbodor is just a couple trubbishes getting together, mixing bodies, and combining arms to create a bigger creature.
I thought this theory was proven for such a long time. In pixel on the had it to where you could spawn ditto from a cloning machine for mew-two. I mean I’ve been telling my friends that that is how ditto became and I never knew it was just a theory .

Maybe all the other ditto can’t shape shift using memory because they are limited to their trainers and maybe the ditto on the movie refused to do so and have fought so many Pokémon it self trained and got better until it felt it was in his best interest to be caught by this man in order to get revenge on new two 🧐🤔 and no I haven’t seen the movies 🥺😎

This is one big reason why I love your videos and wouldn’t be the best theorist because if I saw the ditto in that tower where they cloned and enhanced mew I would have just thought that they used ditto as a way to understand and use DNA splicing/replication/regeneration to make mew-two I would never have thought they were failed clones that didn’t come out as planned.

20 years after the first Pokémon movie. I wonder what happened to the other cloned Pokémon. Are they still living somewhere secluded, or have they just left to try to find their own place to belong. I’d hate to see if they were kidnapped and tested on to see how they were cloned but died in the process.

Someone literally uploaded a video of them flipping through the pages of the original 151 pokemon handbook and it says nothing about ditto being a failed mew experiment. The most it says is that mewtwo was made through gene splicing and that mew was one of the most difficult pokemon to defeat in battle, that pokemon would often run away before mew could attack, and one of men's favorite strategies was to create a protective bubble that could deflect attacks and wait for attackers to get frustrated and give up before mew has to attack.

For MORTY: Me and my brother had an amazing game/film theory: Pokeballs MAKE Pokemon. It started out when I saw the third episode of Pokemon Indigo League and Misty says: "I hate bugs, even if they are Pokemon." That suggest that there are bugs in that world that AREN'T Pokemon. I mean, it's Pokemon. Those should be the only animals that exist in this world. But sure enough, later in the episode, we see a Pidgey eat a worm. Not a Weedle, not a Wurmple, not a Caterpie, a straight-up worm. And later, we see when Ash tries to capture Mankey, who throws a rice ball to deflect it, the Pokeball captures the rice ball. Pokeballs are only supposed to capture Pokemon... unless they aren't. Imagine this. A scientist unveils his latest creation: A storage device that transforms physical matter... into computer data. (This is how Pokeballs work, which is how Pokemon can be stored on computers) He throws the ball at a camel, but upon releasing the camel from the ball, he discovers that the camel has volcanoes on its back. Some people, trying to control pollution, use the magnificent Pocket Ball to store garbage indefinitely, but the garbage comes to life. A Pokeball is used to remove a stump with the spirit of a dead child in it and mutates it into the creature known as Phantump. Pokeballs store things, and then mutate them into Pocket Monsters. This also explains how only four moves can be stored in a Pokemon at a time, how Porygon exists, and why new species are being discovered in new regions every few years. MatPat, if you see this, please do a theory on it. I would love that.

For me, it seems more like normal dittos aren't experiements (or they were a long time ago that has since been forgotten about) but Howard experimented on dittos as well as the other pokémons. It seems as though Howard's ditto has a perfect memory and can read minds. Since mewtwo can transfer minds, I'd say the ditto is either an experiment to create a new mewtwo some time in those 20 years mewtwo was missing, or Howard used knowledge from experimenting on mewtwo to enhance the ditto.

What if he tested on dittos before as experiments to create a stronger version of the same Pokemon because they were so naturally similar to mew. His ditto was the success he wanted before attempting to clone mew.
Marcus Lalnunsanga

This theory is great Mat but it has a few things wrong with this 1)Duplicas ditto was seened in the anime it turned into a literal cannon Now we know that ditto is capable of turning in other things besides a pokemon in the anime 2)If it was from the anime remember mewtwo and mew died in the 10th Pokemon movie(it was an anniversary for pokemon but it was a movie but you used the first pokemon movie as an info too so) 3)You used the anime for this video but you somewhat used info from Pokemon Yellow like what? So in conclusion the "canon" timeline is quite confusing but then it can't be the games either as Mewtwo was caught by Red plus Mewtwo can't talk in the games(it only says mew) in the games mewtwo did escaped 20 years ago but the game Mewtwo escaped 23 years(since red and blue are 23) the ditto was probably an "experiment"that can change at will without the trainer so I'm pretty much saying that I do believe that ditto may have been a failed clone(as it's stated that there are failed clones of mew) but yours and the writers info is too misleading

The ditto’s could also be a sort of waste product from the experiments; like the generic picture of nuclear waste and when experimenting on mewtwo rather than mew, it made more energy full nuclear waste.

i have a theory that Matpat likes to make things up THEN find rando correlations to support theories. the only real correlation i can see is that the guy called Ditto a genetic experiment which we theory fans assume all ditto are anyways, but the movie leads you to believe that it's the dittos transforming prowess that is the experimental feature of the ditto, so why would that have anything to do with the mewtwo theory? unless you are trying to say he created the ditto in the movie trying to clone mewtwo.

The real reason that ditto could turn into any pokemon is bc of mewtow. You see, mewtwo was captured and transfered into a humans body. Then the human form of mewtwo puts an image in dittos mind since the pokemon can bc its sidekick so that it can transform into anything or anyone. BUT HEY. THATS JUST A THEORY. A FILM THEORY AND CUT!

Actually, Masuda said in an interview years ago that he'd never heard of the idea before and felt it went against their general design philosophy, so it's unlikely that the theory is true. There are some details connecting the pokemon, such as their weight and mew learning transform, which suggest individual designers may have had something like this in mind at the time, but it's unlikely that pokemon, on the whole, supports the theory even if any designers ever toyed with the idea, which isn't necessarily the case. The movie writers evidently weren't aware of this and decided to write the connection into their movie under the impression that the theory hadn't already been basically disconfirmed already.

EXACTLY!!! Besides, they've already pretty much confirmed it. This entire theory was sadly a slight waste lol

Yooooo... So at the moment I dont remember which game I was playing but, it was on the Emerald era. You could "lock" ditto into being another pokemon while holding on to an item or something? Could this have an effect on how The Ditto could change so accurately and precisely? Could be up to debate but im sure that alongside Mews DNA (unnecessarily MewTwos) The Ditto could manage it. Just my opinion though.

I just remembered I think a chapter in the old manga explicitly stated dittos were failed experiments.

hardly would call that proof more considering they did other experiments not just on mew/mewtwo but also looking to enhance the natural abilities of different pokemon

Or the ditto was a sensual in the genetic manipulation process it's pokemon species being naturally able to alter itself and clone what it seems would be Ridiculously easy to Genetically alter and make it to where Change the permanently Turn down to whatever it was copying it. Now of course you would also be able Genetic lane enhanced ability to transform to where it would become a superior copy Once formed it would be un Change back the Making a super clown of Making a super clown of whatever pokemon You were trying to copy the 1st place. Now chores I think anyone would agree that Mewtwo is in fact a genetically enhanced and more superior copy then me that is the entire premise of the genetic Program in which created it to create a enhanced copy.

I'm not sure if Matt watched the same movie as I did. In the movie, they said that ditto was enhanced. Not that he was created there, but enhanced. Just like Mewtwo was. So, that doesn't prove anything about ditto being from Mew. At all.

Honestly the enhancements might have just been to her cognitive ability, she also seemed to be acting as Howard's Personal Nurse as well as able to pass herself off as a normal (if mute) Human. It's pretty much why I think she was not only a willing participate in Howard's Scheme, but an active collaborator After all, you have to treat Pokemon as People... ...IF ALL THE PEOPLE ARE POKEMON!!! Plus yeah, Ditto Goop is probably super useful for genetic engineering anyways if they can alter their genetic makeup at will... ...Now if only we get the story of where "Ms Norman" actually got her look from...

They should give ditto an evolution similar to Porygon. Use an upgrade item to allow the evolved ditto to transform into a pokemon it transformed into previously. Max of 3 saved transformations.

No proves here about this theory. This is just a special Ditto, or you'll claim the supersized Torterra are Mew clones too because they were genetically enhanced in the same lab who was studing the already made Mewtwo?

@Hinoarashii look look look. If someone in real life had a unique ability like idk seeing glimpse of the future whenever they want but someone turns out to have that ability as well but lets say that ability can no be reproduced as in there kids won't get it then it means that the 2 people with that ability are one and the same.

@Blitz Gaming okay, I was just arguing that it doesnt confirm it, at least that what that one kid said doesnt, plus I'd say 7 out of 805 is unique

Anyone who knows much about Pokemon in general would hear the thesis "Ditto are failed mew clones" and go "Yep that sounds right" because yeah, it's plausible, and also pokemon has done weirder crap before. Also Ditto wasn't the only experiment in the movie. Greninja, Tortuga, etc... But yeah, same deal there too. I can 1000% buy the ditto = failed mew clone theory because it makes sense just as a floated theory and even more sense when the actual evidence is placed side by side.
