I kinda wish they did that Cloned Sheep Pokemon

I dunno how many of you remember this, but apparently back when Gen 5 came out they were talking about a Pokemon idea that got scrapped that was going to be based on the famous Cloned Sheep but was scrapped due to cloning to being a slightly controversial issue (hilarious for us, fans have been cloning since Gen 1 www.instantrimshot.com)

I was personally intrigued by the idea though. Since Gen 5 was all new Pokemon, many of which being arguable parallels of Gen 1 Pokemon, I thought perhaps the sheep clone could have been sort of a new Ditto of sorts. Capable of breeding with anything, but perhaps a bit more useful by being able to pass on moves or something.

I just feel like there could have been a lot of potential in that idea, and it would certainly be a pretty unique concept for the series.

What do you all think?

...I would have called him Ewembryo :)

That sounds like a really bad rumor, to be honest. It also makes no sense. Cloning being a controversial issue? First of all, that's hardly the case a whole year or two ago. Second of all, we already HAD Mewtwo since the beginning and that is basically what he is.

In fact, he's not just a clone, but a genetically engineered/altered clone. If cloning is controversial, then genetic engineering would be even more so. So that's either a load of crap, or that's not the reason they scrapped the Pokemon.

But Mewtwo's existence is a secret in the Pokemon World
