Ash's father was the champion, he decided to fight Mewtwo without Master Ball and Mewtwo locked his mind into the pikachu and that is why Ash's pikachu is more like human and so powerful :3 Also ditto transformed into a cannon in the anime which was epic :D

At first I thought this video was going to confirm the theory of pikachu being Ash's father and that is why he isn't around. Bill and his pokemon mind swiping machine also add on to the theory. Another thing I like to add on is how in the yellow version of the game The pikachu that is given to you is the only pikachu that was found and caught in the wild. Why so near pallet town?, instead of the Veridian forest or the power plant like in Blue and Red version where you can find them in the while. Food for thought.

Ditto being failed Mews was shown to me a long time ago; However, What if the Ditto were just used as stem cells to produce Mew thanks to their genetic malleability?

I don't think Ditto is a failed experiment, but it was experimented upon, so scientists could perfect cloning, or at least, dittos were implanted Mew's DNA so it would change and maintain it's new DNA, that of Mewtwo, I say this, because if you think about it, how many failed experiments they had? Ditto is common in all regions, how could they multiply so fast that they are commonly found in all regions, but not over reproduced to the point of endangering the existence other species? While there's no doubt it was used in the experiments, saying it was a result of it is a mistake.

Ummm so Mew and Ditto arent the only pokemon that can use transform, if you take a smeargle, which can use sketch, a move that copies another pokemons move permanently. The smeargle can then learn transform. But this doesnt change the theory that much so, thats my tea or whatever.

Good theory. Alternatively a ditto would be desirable for any genetic research.

There is also evidence as the Chronicle of Steve's rise to godhood( aka Minecraft), Ditto spawns from the cloning machine if it fails to create a Mewtwo from Mew, if you're using the Pixelmon mod.

Doesnt prove ditto is a version of mew it just proves ditto is an experiment..?

More likely that he just took a ditto and made it stronger like they did with all the other pokemon in the labs, there is nothing here that says ditto is directly related. Bit of a reach but interesting to hear.

you forgot in xy Mewtwo is found in a cave in the little yellow flower field off snowbelle city which is the only place you can find ditto in Kalos too

Plus ditto is basically the first pokemon in the anime to have special/inconsistant abilities and it has multiple of these. Tiny ditto: only forms a tiny version. Face ditto: cannot copy faces. Etc.

ah charmander was better I mean take it you couldn't even evolve right that's something all Pokemon should be able to do, And The Fool chose not to do it even though I make him more powerful he couldn't even do it what's a gemstone what is this man

What if Clifford's Ditto is the last one before they made Mewtwo, so he would be the strongest?

to expand on this, the surviving genetic process on Cinnabar is one that clones fossils, creating new pokemon by copying the genetic code, in my head, it's not just a failed clone of Mew that produces a Ditto, but trying to clone anything with a natural capability to know the move Transform that would produce this result, the genetic memory of the capability would destabilize the DNA in the process, and pretty much become all that the end result is, it makes sense then, to think that the only reason they actually managed to make Mewtwo, is that they tampered with Mew's genetic sample, and removed that transformation gene, substituting it with the DNA of another pokemon (thus explaining why Mewtwo looks notably different to Mew in the process)((my theory is on them saying it's Lucario with the shape similarity and Mewtwo's added capability to use aura, but that's beside the point)) thus allowing a stable clone to be formed.
