Is Ditto a failed Poke-clone of Mew?

Pokemon X and Y might be four months old at this point, but no matter how old it gets, we at GamesRadar will still be fascinated by these creatures we call Pokemon. That's why we're continuing to investigate their many mysteries in this weekly video series! This episode of Pokemon Weekly finds a curious connection between one of the first legendaries, Mew, and the primordial sludge that is Ditto. A surprising amount of data points to Ditto being a failed clone of Mew; you know, like Mewtwo, but with drippier arms. See the evidence for yourself in our tell-all video below, and then feel free to move on to our Pokemon X and Y review, complete Pokedex (opens in new tab), and guides to Mega Stone locations (opens in new tab) and Pokemon-amie (opens in new tab), along with subscribing to our YouTube channel so you don't miss another episode.
