ditto being a failed mew clone doesn't make sense because mew was a last second

Just because they added mew to the game at the last second doesn't mean the concept didn't exist before then.

yeah ok think about how that would make sense then

Like how Mewtwo was a clone of Mew?

They had more than 150 designs for the first game - there are still 39 blank spots in the data for the gen1 games, which were additional pokemon were meant to be added but got dummied out.

^Interview confirming.

If this was the case, it's likely they had a ton of designs even beyond the 190 that were prototypes, and Mew/Ho-oh were a couple of these.
