It doesn’t matter if the other Pinkie Pies were matches of the original, they were shown to be capable of learning, and could have learned from their mistakes. They had the potential to be individuals in their own right.

Personally, I felt a swell of empathy for that first Pinkie Pie clone, who proved that the clones were capable of reasoning and understanding the consequences of their decisions.

Growing up, I was never the popular one, I never had the best social skills, I was the less important second child, and I sometimes felt like I’d been tossed into this crazy, mixed up world without any clue on how I was supposed to get by.

Whatever Twilight’s spell did to those clones, I hope she is in a better place.

It doesn’t really matter what they were before they were created. You and I were nothing before we existed either, and from the perspective of a dispassionate 3rd party observer, we’re probably not that different from each other in the here and now.

Maybe they are just magic spirits that live inside the pond, and they take the shape of whoever needs a clone. This way they are sent back but still exist. They were no Pinkie’s to begin with.


Another way to explain this is that if there are souls, the clones had none.

I dunno. Maybe they continue to live (and seek fun) inside the mirror pool.

It was never said that those clones would cease to exist after being zapped and sent back.

What if, in some capacity, the first clone (who was most likely also the last one to be sent back) survives, avoids being fully absorbed back into the pond, by nursing a seething hatred of Pinkie and Twilight, and magics a way back up to the surface…

Since the pond is a mirror pond, maybe in the other side of the pond is a mirror world? That way the Pinkies would still have FUN.

I say they are lifeless hulls, borrowing their peronality from Pinkie. Acting like an AI using her stats.

When she cloned herself there were not more ponies than before.

Ladies and gentlecolts, I believe we have found our equivalent of "The Flesh" from Doctor Who.
