    8:18 in the German Version this is even more or less confirmed, because Mewtu has the same voice actor as in the first Anime movie in German :D

    This is why you don't mix Mewtwo's DNA with another pokemon. He was already aggressive and powerful, we don't need an advanced ditto that's smarter and more sadistic (also the reason why I'm calling Mewtwo a "he" is because when it talks telepathically, it has a male voice).

    So is Tim’s dad Ryan Reynolds? I was confused towards the end of the film since we never got a picture of his dad. I know Pokémon and humans can merge into a Pokémon’s body but Howard’s body wasn’t fully inside Mewtwo. Everyone else went inside their Pokémon’s bodies with that R spray after Howard somehow turned everyone. I really liked the movie but I might be overthinking it even though this movie left me with lots of unanswered questions.

    🤔 "Super Ditto" may be the last Ditto before they successfully cloned Mew (created MewTwo). That eould explain more advanced abilities. Also, isn't Ditto being failed Mew clones heavily implied and pretty much the only reasonable explanation? Lol Pretty sure it's just a case of "show, don't tell"

  36. Skyfox94
