Good theory. Alternatively a ditto would be desirable for any genetic research.

There is also evidence as the Chronicle of Steve's rise to godhood( aka Minecraft), Ditto spawns from the cloning machine if it fails to create a Mewtwo from Mew, if you're using the Pixelmon mod.

"Generation 1 - 150 cute little pokemon..."Wait a minute, he even showed Mew.... Does not compute.

More likely that he just took a ditto and made it stronger like they did with all the other pokemon in the labs, there is nothing here that says ditto is directly related. Bit of a reach but interesting to hear.

you forgot in xy Mewtwo is found in a cave in the little yellow flower field off snowbelle city which is the only place you can find ditto in Kalos too

Plus ditto is basically the first pokemon in the anime to have special/inconsistant abilities and it has multiple of these.
Tiny ditto: only forms a tiny version.
Face ditto: cannot copy faces.

What if Clifford's Ditto is the last one before they made Mewtwo, so he would be the strongest?

So you said you weren't going to give big spoilers like what happened to the father, but you gave spoiler to the twist about the villain?
