    I don't think Ditto is a failed experiment, but it was experimented upon, so scientists could perfect cloning, or at least, dittos were implanted Mew's DNA so it would change and maintain it's new DNA, that of Mewtwo, I say this, because if you think about it, how many failed experiments they had?

    Ditto is common in all regions, how could they multiply so fast that they are commonly found in all regions, but not over reproduced to the point of endangering the existence other species?
    While there's no doubt it was used in the experiments, saying it was a result of it is a mistake.

                Ummm so Mew and Ditto arent the only pokemon that can use transform, if you take a smeargle, which can use sketch, a move that copies another pokemons move permanently. The smeargle can then learn transform. But this doesnt change the theory that much so, thats my tea or whatever.

                  Turns film theory icon 270 degrees clockwise instead of 90 degrees counterclockwise to change it into the game theory icon... me: angery

                        Good theory. Alternatively a ditto would be desirable for any genetic research.

                              There is also evidence as the Chronicle of Steve's rise to godhood( aka Minecraft), Ditto spawns from the cloning machine if it fails to create a Mewtwo from Mew, if you're using the Pixelmon mod.

                                    I have a theory what if the main character in the movie ( I forgot the name ) father was Ash from the TV series Ash just changed his name.

                                      Wait if they can create a mewtwo can they make all the pokemons a two? Like pikatwo or rayqauzatwo

                                              Ditto with an photographic memory so it can remeber the details of things it's previously seen

                                                        More likely that he just took a ditto and made it stronger like they did with all the other pokemon in the labs, there is nothing here that says ditto is directly related. Bit of a reach but interesting to hear.
