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.

Creepy but considering your take and the background information this is really good work.

This is really, REALLY cool! I really love your take on mew as a fetus that never ages and the concept of mewtwo's tail as an umbilical cord is super creative! However, I think my favorite part about this piece is the ditto. You managed to take a Pokemon that really doesn't have all that much too it other than transforming into others and being breeding slave and turned it into something dark and creepy. That takes talent! As for the people who have a different opinion, it's okay if it's not your thing. I think this is probably my favorite piece though. It's nice to see a dark take on cutesy stuff now and then.

Maybe its becuase Dito was actually a failed project of Mewtwo
XenoZombie725's avatar

Really? Mewtwo's tail can't even transform into anything!

Gugnugl's avatar
It  doesn't transform. The leftover cells from the Umbilical cord, turning into Ditto. His tail stays, they are coming from the Cord

AAANNDD there goes my train of thoughts

So this is a type of overpowered Shit, and normal PKMN Poo can not transform? does the Psyhokinetik ability transfer to the Material transcending through the body?
