-Mewtwo- by arvalis -Mewtwo- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Mewtwo is imperfect. He was created in an attempt to clone the ancestral Pokemon, Mew. Mew's origins are not known, what is known is that within its DNA lies the building blocks to all Pokemon. Mew has the appearance of an embryo and it seemingly never ages. Mewtwo did not receive this genetic perk. At first hatching it appeared to be a perfect success, though the clone started growing. It eventually grew too strong to be kept under restraint, in its escape destroyed the research facility it was created in. In this purge it freed other undeveloped Mew clones. The cloned sludge, left without a body or identity, yet still with the incomplete building blocks of all Pokemon wander aimless seeking others of their kin. They are known as Ditto and have become a plague on wild Pokemon, killing an absorbing their prey and filling their broken DNA with strains from the world's Pokemon species.

Design wise, I really wanted to bring the theme of birth and life into Mew and by extension, Mewtwo. They both have an umbilical cord ending in a placental brain wrapping around their tail. Mewtwo shares traits with many other Pokemon species as Mew was never supposed to grow, so it took on traits of various Pokemon from its genetic party bus of DNA.

You should have added "Thanks to the guidance of their trainers, domesticated Ditto do not need to kill other Pokemon in order to collect their DNA strains. However, their libido increases to insane levels, transforming into whatever Pokemon is nearest and mating with it constantly, often resulting pregnancy. Ditto trainers are known to manipulate this trait in order to mass breed rare Pokemon."

I had the same idea about Ditto. I was kinda thinking about animating a realistic Pokémon series on YouTube, but now I can't use most of my ideas because you already used them.No, I disagree! I was really exited about Ditto....But great job!

Having an opinion doesnt make you right.  You should learn that how you see things is not the definitive way all people see things.  I've had enough of you hassling me, I dont have the time for someone as small minded as you.

ARVALIS , you said the design of mewtwo has features of many other pokemon species. What I am asking is ,was the design random or did you actually had in mind some species ? If you did , can you tell us which?

Lol it looks like Mewtwo was giving cesarean birth and stuff happened and all kittens were dead except Mew. If you look at the pile of goo thing at the very left, doesn't it look like a Mew? Or are they Dittos?

A popular theory is that Ditto came from failed attempts to clone Mew

They share similar colors, their shiny forms are both blue, they can both transform and in gen I/III, Ditto are found in the Pokemon Mansion, where Mewtwo was "born"
