-Mewtwo- by arvalis -Mewtwo- by arvalis

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.

That is, I believe, what mew was based on.

Mew and Mewtwo were both based off of sphinx cats, though mew in my opinion resembles a kangaroo and mew a kangaroo rat.

It took me a while to realize those were dittos and not some weird liquid mewtwo excreted. XD

Creepy...bizarre...and quite interesting. In one of the Mystery dungeon games, any Ditto that is befriended dwells in an abandoned lab, so it's quite easy to say that Ditto are man-made creatures.

What has me puzzled by Mew is that there are many of them. The one from the first movie is not the same one that appears (except maybe in the Lucario one where Ho-oh changed from it).

Is it possible that Mew is able to clone itself naturally?

I thought the mews would have short fur. This is a cooler representation on mew two even if it is gross to look at below the waist line.

THAT baby is Mew. And Mewtwo isn't nearly as strong as the smaller one. 
PS Mew is not a baby.

Ok. Let me tell you what they are:
Mewtwo is having some Dittos on him. Mew is a cat fetus. The dittos are related somehow. ;)
