Matpat said he was confused about dido transforming into humans but in super smash bros ultimate dido it a assist trophy that transforms into your character so he can absolutely transform into humans.

I was just wondering something. If the genetically enhanced Ditto could turn into anything at will, could it turn into legendary Pokemon like Zygarde, Yveltal, or Arceus? Just going off of the canon universe here. Just a thought......

But you could get mewtwo in the other games it just was a different part of the legendary bird cave... and I’m pretty sure I saw dittos in those games and they were in that cave ...

My first thought when i started watching this was that maybe ditto wasn't a product of experimentation but what they were experimenting on. Maybe ditto already existed and they were trying to use it's genes to help create Mewtwo .

But there were experiments on other Pokémon in the same lab to enhance them too, seems hard to explain away that part of the theory as we know those Pokémon were discovered in later generations like the toterra who are giant

I've always thought dittos were 100% failed mewtwo experiments, because I played a lot of pixelmon, where the only way to get a ditto is from a failed mewtwo experiment.

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.

I was going to comment about Ditto’s stat distribution and how each stat is 52% lower than Mew’s, which is also 100% lower than the number that’s Mewtwo’s pokédex entry number. It’s true... if Mewtwo was Chikorita

I have a theory a ditto was told to clone mewtwo so mewtwo could escape and that's why the dittos followed metal cuz they knew who it was

ATTENTION! A few things, it's not the Konto region it's the Kanto region with a hard 'a', second, detective pikachu is NOT cannon, the producers of detective pikachu made up a region that is not in the anime or in the games, therefore it is not cannon. I have been immersed in the pokemon fan culture for the past 8 years and I am not convinced. I can guarantee you I know far more about pokemon than mat pat. This is NOT the pokemon communities biggest fan theory. Also DOZENS of pokemon have equal stats across the board, it is 100% not just ditto and mew. Also you can breed any pokemon with ditto but you can never breed pokemon with mew or mewtwo. The only way Mew is a "special" mythical is becuase it's in the first generation, 90% of mythical pokemon throughout the generations have 100 in each stat. You REALLY can't base your theory off of detective pikachu. ALL of that evidence is not even evidence, Matpat really doesn't know enough about pokemon to be making this theory. DO NOT LISTEN TO HIM
