Both movies ended up being pretty great. Sonic was definitely less faithful to the games, but it also had less to work with, story wise, so I think they made the right choice.

In the pokemon red blue and yellow manga, ditto transformed into a hand/arm (I think it was pokemon red blue yellow, but it could be a different pokemon manga)
Polymythic: AanEurekAhill
Or it's that Mewtwo was made *out* of a Ditto as a platform -- like how real-world genetic experiments implement small changes to already-existing genotypes for the structures those genotypes are already really good at producing, but with the addition of the desired experimental element.
Team Rocket probably got a sample of Mew's DNA and then used Ditto's transformative genetic structure to synthesize another Mew, although with a few changes to make it more militant.
The surplus of Dittos in the location probably has to do with the form-preservation trait Team Rocket wanted in the new Mew clone to make it permanently Mewtwo -- the ones around the lab and the cave are probably the ones that couldn't maintain the new form.
The ones in the cave, specifically, were probably so in tune with Mew's psychic signature, since the psyches of pokemon (and people, really) are not quite *like* their bodies and may tend to retain memories of high-energy stimulus in a sort of non-physical field that can't be altered even if the body changes (or changes *back,* in this case), like how qualia and experience is not quite the *same* as the physical phenomena that make up their relative stimulus for sensation -- especially stimulus as high as fluent psychic abilities.
The Dittos probably recognized the psychic signature, like ants recognize chemical signatures, and followed it even though they didn't remember exactly what it was.
Mewtwo probably allowed them to stay because he was subconsciously lonely, as we've all seen, being more like Mew than he thought.

Actually when Ditto transforms into Machamp, he still has his normal blank face, meaning Howard's ditto saw Machamp a lot less recently, and it wasn't flawless.

They never said that ditto was limited to only being able transform into things it *currently* sees...
*Also ditto got censored* 10:18
Edit: I know this is proved wrong in the video, I just hadn't seen that part when I posted this.

So if a Ditto copies a Mew, does it correct the genetic DNA to go from an imperfect copy to a perfect copy? 🤔

Was anyone else kinda disappointed that the movie was so different than the game Detective Pikachu? I mean i get it, not everything in a game is good for movies, but it still isn't what I expected.

I have a weird question: can Ditto transform into legendary Pokemon, like Arceus, or Mew? If so, then we have yet another piece of confirmation that Ditto is a weaker Mew...

Did you know they proved it in the manga. And mewtwo is alittle darker.

Ditto is the failed test to make MewTwo.

Maybe the only reason that ditto was different than the other dittos its because it inhaled a weird chemical gas which makes pokemon aggressive
Just maybe

One other thing worth noting is that Ditto transforming into humans is a canon, or at least game canon fact. They do it in Alola, why wouldn't the others be able to?

There are several holes in this theory. The entire time they're in the lab we see many different "genetically experimented" pokemon. In fact the only pokemon NOT present in the labs is ditto. I'm a firm believer that ditto being a failed clone is the intention, but it always seems whether your theories are sound or not you just can't escape throwing in shitty evidence.

Ditto did not recreate the pokemon flawlessly. How do u miss out the face. Normal ditto do not have this feature. The only ditto that was shown to mess up the face was the ditto from the replica house. It wasent flawless. Thus the ditto isint a mega op ditto. It was relying on memory to transform and got the face wrong
Groddzilla - 26 days ago
Srry to ruin your parade but the fact that ditto was a recreation of mew was already discovered by pixelmon

Theory the mini atic:u know that scene when tim dad harry dies it shared some similarity to spider verses spiderman death which made me think of an idea that plays scared of the dark and put that song in the scene where tim discoveres his dad is dead

I actually forget..
Do we ever see the Ditto form in the movie?
I'll have to watch it again... I'm just curious. I know the transformations look super cool and gooey, but I don't remember seeing Ditto just blobbin' about.
