Detective Pikachu has done so much better than Pokemon fans - and honestly, everyone else - were expecting. It hits that balance of current relevance and nostalgia. And on top of that, it holds the clues to a ton of Pokemon fan theories! Today Loyal Theorists, we are looking to Ditto. For a long time, fans have speculated on the origins of the pink little blob. I am here to tell you that Detective Pikachu has given us all the clues we need to figure out Ditto's mysterious origins once and for all!

  • My theory is that Pokemon are really grim reapers collecting the souls of the dead. It's not until a soul of someone not dead is collected that they can communicate. Ya know you can't talk to the dead, so Pokemon cant act as a medium

  • In the same episode with Duplica she says “Okay Dittio, transform!” And it turns into a CANON and loads Pikachu as the canon ball, which fires at Team Rocket’s hot air balloon. Edit. I doubt they just have canons sitting around. It also transformed into a picture of Jessie’s crush. Which means Ditto can turn into other objects. Maybe it could learn to turn into a human… maybe this Ditto was taken from Duplica?

  • Why is no one pointing out that that's because the ditto in the movie wasn't a special ditto at all. That was Mew (who has exactly that ability to transform at will), pretending to be a ditto to stay close to the villain who keeps almost succeeding (but hasn't quite been able to) because his "assistant" always helps him "just not enough" to have things be where they need to be. Something malicious actually trying wouldn't turn into a cubone and waste time tapping fingers... because he was just stalling, making it look just realistic enough to fool "a certain group of people."

    TheDarkLycan YTTheDarkLycan YT10 ngày trước
  • Another proof is that mew is the ancestor of all pokemon. Which means mew has the dna of all the pokemon and because ditto is a failed clone, it also has the dna of all pokemon thus being able to transform into any pokemon.

  • @MatPat: I actually think it is Ditto’s DNA that helped create MewTwo. Instead of being failed excitements, it is what was used to create MewTwo. That is why they are in the lab, why they follow MewTwo, and why they smile. Okay maybe not the last one, but hey. That’s just a theory. A Crossover theory

      WolfmeckerWolfmecker2 tháng trước
  • Maybe all the other ditto can’t shape shift using memory because they are limited to their trainers and maybe the ditto on the movie refused to do so and have fought so many Pokémon it self trained and got better until it felt it was in his best interest to be caught by this man in order to get revenge on new two 🧐🤔 and no I haven’t seen the movies 🥺😎
