Apparently Masuda had never heard of the rumor of Ditto being a failed Mew clone:

That was an interesting read. Seems to me that it would put an end to that rumor, but of course there will be people saying "But he didn't SPECIFICALLY say NOOOO."

Yeah, he also says that they never thought of the pokemon world as being earth, yet the games reference several real earth locations and animals, so there's that.
Always interested in any Pokemon event distribution cartridges. My email is in my profile.

I always figured any references to real-world places, animals, etc. were just so that we'd be able to relate to them.

In addition to that:

Apparently, he doesn't know whether or not Ditto was intended to be a failed Mew clone.

He doesn’t have an answer as to whether meat is eaten.

He doesn’t have an answer as to what new trainers living in late-game towns are supposed to do.

And he wasn’t involved in the process of deciding what the Poké Ball Pokémon do in Super Smash Bros (which means we can blame Sakurai for the whole thing about Goldeen doing what Magikarp is supposed to do).

Yeah and it's funny how he said Ditto is unique because it can change forms when Mew can do it too.

Good, maybe now that dumb rumor can die.

It's still head canon for me forever. Too good a theory to dump.

True or not, I will always believe its canon. And the whole thing about the Pokeworld being earth is false. Just because there are locations based on real locations don't make any difference to it actually being earth. It's called a theme.
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.
