Detective Pikachu has done so much better than Pokemon fans - and honestly, everyone else - were expecting. It hits that balance of current relevance and nostalgia. And on top of that, it holds the clues to a ton of Pokemon fan theories! Today Loyal Theorists, we are looking to Ditto. For a long time, fans have speculated on the origins of the pink little blob. I am here to tell you that Detective Pikachu has given us all the clues we need to figure out Ditto's mysterious origins once and for all!

Well as a 31 year old, this was a lot of fun to watch. :) I haven't been in the loop.

Come on, we all fucking know very well what Ditto's purpose is.

Actually, I remember there was an instance of Blue (the girl one) fron pokemon adventures using her ditto as a mask to copy a person's face. So there is a canon moment where ditto transforms into something it doesn't see at that moment!

detective decker!
Good, now make Pokemon Rusty live action
don't touch my YouTube account you brat
After that backstory scene in the near end of the movie, it all made sense. Why would ryan Reynolds play pikachu and the dad? Because he was the dad all along

ugh, i hate it when people use pre 6th gen shiny pokemon in something of proof, they didn't pick the colors, they went one color pallet over and because they're both similar colors, they share very similar pallets, so they get switched to have similar pallets, which is the same reason there are so many blue pokemon that turn pink/purple, and why a bunch yellow/brown pokemon turn very slightly greenish and end up as disappointing shinies. it doesn't really damage the theory, but i just get annoyed whenever anyone uses it as proof or complains about a pre 5th gen shiny and says something like "why didn't they pick another color" as if they actually went through the trouble of picking 251 alternate pallets they thought most people would never see for gold and silver, much less going and programming in individual pallets instead of just probably (don't know for sure if this is how it actually technically works) just having it go "if X pokemon is shiny, pallet is +1" or something along those lines

Didn't that Ditto transform into a cannon in that episode to shoot down the Meowth Balloon? I don't remember if there was a cannon nearby, but all she said was"Ditto...Transform!" and it turned into a cannon. If it's memory is so bad, why did the cannon work properly?

I remember a scene from the anime where Jesse and James shows a picture of Dragonite in a book, to a ditto, but instead of what they wanted, the Ditto transformed into the book

Unfortunately, I was deprived as a child to have the common pets like dogs, cats, or birds. Leaving me some very interesting alternatives... Enjoy!
