Ditto (Pokémon)

24 bytes added, 10 April
Origin
In the sixth issue of {{wp|Best Buy}}'s @Gamer magazine, Game Freak developers [[Junichi Masuda]] and [[Ken Sugimori]] revealed that Ditto was originally based on the iconic {{wp|smiley}} face.{{fact}} Its eyes and mouth are exactly like ":)", which is an emoticon representing the smiley.
 
Additionally, Ditto strongly resembles an ''{{wp|amoeba}}'', a single-celled organism with no definite shape. This may emphasize its ability to alter its cellular composition. This could also explain why Ditto is unavailable through breeding, since single-celled organisms reproduce differently from multi-cellular plants and animals. It also could partially be based on an {{wp|Cellular differentiation|undifferentiated cell}}, a cell in the body that can change into any other cell by sampling it. In addition, it could have been based on a {{wp|blob}} or {{wp|modeling clay}}.
