      Just watched this movie for the first time, thought it was great.

      Key point to my comment; you missed a piece of evidence tying the special Ditto to MewTwo.

      Spoiler; during the end fight with ditto, ditto transforms into multiple pokemon, but specifically ones interacted with by the main character in the story. (Cubone, Mr.mime, loudred, machamp) suggests a possible telepathic connection.

                Hasn't sega secretly a subsidiary of nintendo for the past decade or so? It'd make sense why sonic games/media are routinely terrible since he's one of the few franchises that has a chance of overthrowing mario; and over the years we've all seen how nintendo tries to keep their favorites obsessively popular, if not at times oppressively controlled. Just some suspicious food for thought.

                    Here's a thought.....
                    Ditto = Mewtwo's poo! 😮
                    That's why they're always by Mewtwo and why they are constantly appearing.

                      Our classic villian Mewtwo is a good boy now. So no more Pokemon (anime) movies that will portray him as villain ?

                          You forgot to mention, as Mew is the ancestor to many (not all) Pokemon. this is where the transformation ability stems from. It has the basis of so many Pokemon genes, which is the reason it can do that in the first place

                              I have a theory from Detective Pikachu.

                              All the first generation starter Pokemon are native to the wild areas around Ryme City. It is the only place canonically where they are seen in the wild.

                                                                  ANYWAY about the theory, it doesn´t actually confirm the ditto-mew relationship cause the experiments were meant to Enhance the pokemons, so that could just be an enhanced ditto.

                                                                              Does everyone in the pokemon universe age normally except for Ash? If so is he some kind of failed experiment of professor oaks?

                                                                                  I have to admit it... I didn't know. That theory is awesome. So many undeniable clues! There's no way it was just a coincidence. Ditto are failed copies of Mew, that was a fact all along and I didn't know, shame on me xD.

                                                                                  Now I wouldn't say Detective Pikachu _confirmed_ it. They _used_ the theory, but the movie is definitely not part of the canon. The links with the canon are just fanservice.

                                                                                    Sooooooo...... Mew could’ve transformed into a ditto eh that’s my theory
