They both learn Tranform. And their shiny colours are the same. Their weight is the same - 8.8 lbs.

It is a famous theory. Most likely it is but we need more evidence to prove it.
People believe that it is as in the oringinal pokemon games in the mansion where they talk about mew and mewtwo you can catch ditto there and in ceroluon cave where you find mewtwo the closer you get to mewtwo the more ditties there are and mew and ditto follow the same colour sceme shiny and normal

Only Game Freak can confirm it.

All it is is an incredibly famous theory, that is incredibly well supported with much detail, the only people that can confirm is Game Freak. Personally, I am torn as to if this is true or not.

But actually, it states here that GameInformer were interviewing Junichi Masuda and Takau Unno, two members of authority at Game Freak, and they were asked the question.

>There is a rumor that in the original Pokémon games, versions Red and Blue, that the Pokémon Ditto was a failed attempt at cloning a Mew. I was wondering if you could speak to this, to whether or not it’s true.
>Masuda: That’s the first time I have ever hear that rumor actually.
>Is that your only answer?
>Masuda: In terms of how Pokémon are designed, they are each their own unique living being. The unique thing about Ditto is that it’s a Pokémon that can change forms, but each Pokémon we create with its own unique element, so we just make sure that they are all individual life forms of their own.

So yeah, they confirm it's not true. Hurrah.

Hope I helped. :)

:o! no illogical theory?
...This question in itself is a theory.
Fight fire with fire.
(And burn the whole place down)
like Mewtwo destroyed the mansion.
Did you check the date
