    Default THEORY: Ditto are Mew that have lost their form.

    Just a little theory, dealing with Mew and Ditto.

    As you know, Mew is the ancestor to all Pokémon upon the Pokémon World, barring the Sinnoh lot. Now, Mew could learn any move, but are commonly depicted able to use Transform. I don't know about you lot, but I figure if Mew were the ancestor to all Pokémon, thereby being the only existing Pokémon at one point, you'd expect them to be a bit more common, yet they aren't...while Ditto are. Ditto share Mew's colour scheme, as well as their ability to (albeit temporarily) learn any move in the Pokémon World. One can also argue Ditto have the DNA of all Pokémon, since they would need it to know what goes where, like a reference sheet, inanimate objects not counting, as they aren't exactly complex when compared to living creatures.

    However, there are a couple of arguments against this theory, such as "If this is the case, why don't Ditto remain in the form of Mew when they Transform, thereby regaining their form". Well, one could argue that whatever reason that caused them to loose their form may prevent them from keeping a solid form, which also serves as to why Ditto don't remain a Pokémon they've copied after battle, for the trainer's convinience.

    And for a bit of botched game programming being used in the argument, if you catch a Mew that's used Transform in Gen 1 and 2, then you'll end up with a Ditto instead.

    Discuss, or trash if this is "that topic again..."

    Edit: Ok, so people who've just read the topic can see the newer facts without having to go through all the pages, I'll list them here:

    Quote Originally Posted by Reasoning for the theory

    -Mew and Ditto are the only two Pokémon who know Transform. This is proof of a relation as Transform ISN'T a TM, so Mew knows the move naturally. Smeargle does not count as it requires copying the move to know it.
    -Mew and Ditto have the same weight.
    -Mew and Ditto can learn every move, albeit in Ditto's case only temporarily.
    -Mew and Ditto can have 5 stars in all Performance Stats. This can be argued against due to OriGiratina, Arceus and Sunkern can also have 5 stars in all PS.
    -For a Pokémon common in the Pokémon World at one point, Mew sure have become rare, unlike Ditto who seem particularly common in areas where they can be located.
    -Possibly the same mass.If Game Freak were to give us the width of Ditto, it could be measured.
    Also, the information partaking to the Generation 1 and 2 Transformation Glitch was a joke on my part. I'm pretty sure that if a Smeargle copies Transform and uses it, it will also become a Ditto. I state this because some people don't apparently view it as a joke, but rather a legit argument. If I had intended for that, I would have made it more prominant.

    I always imagined that Ditto were just corrupted Mews.

    wow, I totally see the sense in that. It makes sense. Even their shiny sprites are the same color.

    Well thought out.

    It's...

    it's beautiful.

    And Instrutilius made art, and his art was plausible.

    I now subscribe to this theory. Send me an issue in the mail every month for two years.

    I also vaguely remember the mentioning of the Mews inhibiting a heavenly cloud, until one sacrificed its body to save the world... that could relate, if it was canon. I remember the place I read this backstory said it was the plot of those Southern Island cards somehow, but it was probably a crappy fanfic lie, this WAS the 90s Love the theory though, and Mewtwo shows that Mews have an easily genetically altered form.

    maybe dittos are the byproducts of attempts to clone mew.

    Have joking.

    On a slightly related note, did anybody else always see Ditto as a Pokemon based on Primordial Ooze? Since some scientists speculate that is where all life came from, and Mew is speculated to be the origin of all Pokemon, that could also support the theory.

    One of the most beautiful theories I have ever read. The facts that Mew has the DNA of every Pokemon in existence and that Ditto can Transform into just about every Pokemon completely justify this.

    This.. This is one great theory. It does make sense, because they can both Transform, and they are both pink (or blue when they are shiny) with the same color palette..

    Well they are pink, blue when shiny and are the only Pokemon that can transform, bar Smeargle.
