True! There were a lot of plausible reasons why this made sense. Some include that Mew and Ditto both weigh the same, are the same colour, have identical base stats across every category (although Dittos are less), Ditto can change it’s appearance to any Pokemon, and in Pokemon Yellow, Fire Red and Leaf Green, Ditto can be found in the Pokemon mansion on Cinnabar Island (where Mewtwo was said to be created). However, in an interview with Gamefreak’s director Takao Unno, he stated that this wasn’t true, and that Ditto is it’s own Pokemon.
GamesRadar described Caterpie's evolution, Metapod, as a "punching bag." commented that Metapod was "lamer" and more "useless" than Caterpie, suggesting that players not catch a wild one. They added though that it evolved into Butterfree, which they called "cool." Butterfree has received similarly mixed reception. IGN editor Pokémon of the Day Chick likened it as a counterpart to Beedrill, describing it as an introduction to basic evolution for new players, but its usefulness diminish once it goes up against stronger Pokémon. While editor Brett Elston states that while the staff has said some harsh words about Butterfree, it is very useful early in the game and can even be useful up until the end of the game. Author Harry Schlesinger wrote that Butterfree was popular among girls. A theory exists that Butterfree and the Pokémon Venonat were once to be related; GamesRadar's Carolyn Gudmundson stated that their faces and hands were identical and looked more similar than Venonat does to its evolution Venomoth. She also noted that Metapod appeared more similar to Venomoth than to Butterfree. Author Maria S. Barbo called Butterfree a "beautiful but dangerous Pokémon".
In the manga, Caterpie and Metapod's first appearances is a cameo as some of the Pokémon that escape from Professor Oak's Laboratory. Yellow had a Caterpie named Kitty, which she did not want to evolve. However, in the battle against Lance, she did not have her Pokédex, which she needed to stop her Pokémon from evolving, and so Caterpie evolved into Metapod and then into Butterfree right afterwards. Yellow's uncle, Fisherman Wilton, also has a Butterfree. Both of them are able to use Butterfree as a mode of flight, using Butterfree to hold onto their backs as they fly. Bugsy uses two Metapod on his team. In The Electric Tale of Pikachu, 's Metapod evolved into Butterfree at the Cerulean Gym.
