    basically, what i have gathered from this video is that Howard Clifford was trying to make mewthree, by doing what Dr. Fuji and others did with Mew. That's why that ditto is better than other ditto's. because it's not a failed clone of mew, it's a failed clone of Mewtwo.

    Duplica's ditto can transform into objects that are not present, but perhaps we can also infer some form of decent intelligence as well given you would have to know the functions and structure of gunpowder to form a cannon like the ditto did in the series

    In the pokedex it saya ditto was a failed experiment of cloning mew, and also in many pokemon games like spinoffs if you clone mew you get ditto

    The facts counter this theory as Giovanni, the leader of team rocket funded the experiment, even if ditto was a failure, giovanni would've wanted it as who wouldn't want a pokemon which could morph or he would sell it.

    About ditto getting details wrong, if you look at it’s eyes in the movie they replicate the dittos eyes and not the original Pokemon’s eyes
