This ditto isnt a "special" ditto. It still transformed with the stupid goofy expression Duplica's ditto did. Meaning it did it from memory as it "got details wrong". The fact that it manifested as the stupid face was just a design choice, im sure.

Wasn’t this ditto being failed copies of mew theory get confirmed a while ago? Even in things like pixelmon, the way of getting ditto is to fail cloning mew. That was in like 2015 ish I believe.

ugh, i hate it when people use pre 6th gen shiny pokemon in something of proof, they didn't pick the colors, they went one color pallet over and because they're both similar colors, they share very similar pallets, so they get switched to have similar pallets, which is the same reason there are so many blue pokemon that turn pink/purple, and why a bunch yellow/brown pokemon turn very slightly greenish and end up as disappointing shinies. it doesn't really damage the theory, but i just get annoyed whenever anyone uses it as proof or complains about a pre 5th gen shiny and says something like "why didn't they pick another color" as if they actually went through the trouble of picking 251 alternate pallets they thought most people would never see for gold and silver, much less going and programming in individual pallets instead of just probably (don't know for sure if this is how it actually technically works) just having it go "if X pokemon is shiny, pallet is +1" or something along those lines

Didn't that Ditto transform into a cannon in that episode to shoot down the Meowth Balloon? I don't remember if there was a cannon nearby, but all she said was"Ditto...Transform!" and it turned into a cannon. If it's memory is so bad, why did the cannon work properly?

Its true that Ditto can transform into any kind of Pokémon. But the problem is Ditto can be easily detected by just looking at the face even though it transformed into a different appearance. So most fans can be asking. Why Ditto can't change his face?

But, like.... there were pokemon movies before Detective Pikachu... Although, I suppose those are more rooted in the anime than anything else. Also, edit: Before Arceus was introduced, the entirety of Pokemon pushes that Mew created all pokemon, which was why they wanted to clone Mew in the first place. It was always a power struggle. That failed. at least three times now.

The movie said it was a genetically enhanced ditto. Also the pokedex entry you just used said that Ditto can transform from memory, just that it would get details wrong. You kinda contradicted yourself for a theory that would've been answered had you done more research such as later dex entries and Pokemon books confirm Ditto is a failed clone. Also that the movie explicitly stated that Ditto was genetically enhanced. Sadly this didn't feel like much of a theory. Just a poorly researched statement

I guess Matt Patt doesn't realize that the mew and ditto connection is fact and not a theory, also yeah ditto's can transform into anything at will. They tend to change into enemy pokemon if they fight, but they can transform into ANYTHING at all whenever they want to. Even weapons if you follow the anime in the ditto episode. Also note Ditto's make perfect copies in thier transformations, only the anime ditto from that episode couldn't make a perfect transformation. Something people keep forgetting and like in the movie they even use it have ditto eyes instead of the human eyes. Which is just inaccurate, and one of the only complaints I have with the movie. So to review If you accept everything put out as fact about ditto's they can become anything they ever want to be and that includes somehow transforming into cannons if they want and firing weapons. It is actual fact stated in the lore of pokemon that Arceus "Arceus is thought to have created the Sinnoh region and possibly the entire Pokémon world, the lake guardians Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit; and the creation trio Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. Because of this, Arceus is thought to be one of the most long-lived of all Pokémon species. It has the power to recreate the creation trio as well, presumably to guard the dimensions when a Trainer has caught one of them. According to the anime, its power can also bring back things that it once destroyed, make certain things vanish into thin air, or to halt time." as stated by the pokedex entries, Arceus also created mew with the genetics of every pokemon to ever be made anjd it's job so to create life. So every pokemon we see in the pokemon universe is almost entire created by mew procreations. With the exceptions of certians ones like Palkia, Dialga and Giratina. Those are over seen by Arceus our pokemon god. Also remember that humans in the pokemon world are also considered the same as other pokemon. They had married pokemon, and even died and became pokemon, in death or reincarnation or straight up turn into one while sleeping if they have increadibly high iq's. So Arceus is god of all beings in the pokemon universe. Cannon fact, Mew is just a pokemon tasked with a job, like how some pokemon are stated to have pushed the continents' tectonic plates around, or oversee all of space or time etc... And Ditto carries those same super genetics even as failed clones.

I have you a theory, Matpat! I literally just started watching the movie and I'm only a few minutes in. When Tim walks into his dad's apartment "Angels with Dirty Souls" is playing on the TV. They don't show that it's Home Alone, and Tim comments that his dad is still watching those "old detective" movies. That particular movie franchise only exists in the Home Alone universe. Do Detective Pikachu and Home Alone share the same universe?

In the pokedex entries it says that if it does it by memory it gets details wrong so what if since humans have better memory it was really a human inside a ditto since they do have the ability to do it. AND ALTHOUGH you might say it doesn’t have a headband thing they might have only needed the headband for mewtwo since it is such a powerful physic type.
