But since they're made out of an interspecies bukkake-bucket of Pokemon DNA, they're even more artificial, and therefore even easier to clone and engineer than regular humans and other types of Pokemon. But just like other Pokemon, they all look the same and have the same name.
Only skilled geneticists -- like Brock, who dreams of being a Pokemon breeder -- can tell them apart. Well, Brock and Mewtwo. In the first Pokemon movie, we see further proof that Joy is a lab-created abomination by how Mewtwo the super-clone of Mew treats her. After growing tired of being a lab rat, Mewtwo murdered the shit out of Mr. Fuji and his associates. To further exact his vengeance, Mewtwo planned to wipe out the entire human race, along with regular Pokemon, which he considered inferior to the enhanced clone-Pokemon like himself.
However, there was one "human" he felt an affinity for: Mewtwo brainwashed a Nurse Joy and kidnapped her, bringing her with him to his lair so she could aid him in his goal to repopulate his new world with super clone babies. After some dumb human insulted and attacked him, Mewtwo lost his shit once again, and in the midst of his freshly stoked hatred of humans, he released the Joy he had enslaved, deciding even she was too human for his new, superior world. The Pokemon Company Seriously, this asshole was one shitty mustache away from a releasing a Mew Kampf manifesto.

He left them all in peace and erased their memories of the events. This detail is crucially important. Joy's ordeal shows that her mind is incredibly malleable.
Her memories can easily be overwritten, and she can be brainwashed to follow orders. And if shit hits the fan, a psychic Pokemon can simply hit the delete button and blank-slate her ass like nothing ever happened. This is how Joy and Jenny's true master, Giovanni, uses his insidious anime clones to take over the world in plain sight.
Why would he choose these two professions to infiltrate? At some point in the beginning, humans must have been a staple in the law enforcement and healthcare industries. But remember, Giovanni has ready access to psychic Pokemon capable of Inception-ing anyone they goddamn please. Giovanni would have been able to instate his lady clones into the positions of authority they continue to hold today, and anyone who says otherwise gets mind-wiped.
And since these two staples aren't run by people with powerful Pokemon , he could do it with ease. This would also provide him with extra income, since, as we've established , his other ventures aren't doing much to improve his profit margins.

In a poignant flashback, we learn that Jessie, half of the Team Rocket team which constantly harasses Ash, once aspired to become a nurse herself. While applying for medical school, she was heavily dissuaded from attending by the admissions officer, but her tenacity won out and she attended nursing school, surrounded by scores of a very specific type of Pokemon: Chanseys, all being set up to evolve and turn into their Joy counterparts.
The Pokemon Company Jessie kicked ass at her studies, but her Pokemon classmates "accidentally" put her to sleep with their "Sing" powers during class, inciting the wrath of her teacher and ultimately causing her to be the only student to fail the course.
This is when Giovanni first recognized Jessie's villainous potential. Remember, he's always watching. Nobody has any reason to question their dominance in these fields, because they are perfectly suited for them. This also explains why Dr Fuji couldn't just make them look different to avoid public suspicion. It's the same genetic phenomenon that gave us different dog breeds -- dogs bred for a specific job developed a specific physical appearance based on what they were designed for.
Eventually, though, the Joys and Jennys would receive a few makeovers The Pokemon Company The brilliant bastards still made it a point to retain the hot girl motif. They're just side effects of believing that you're a human who makes human choices. Giovanni had also made strides to conquer other areas of the Pokemon universe with his cloning plans, but they've been small so far: Why hasn't he had an Officer Jenny cap Ash while the trainer is sleeping?
Where is the endgame to all of this? As it turns out, there might not be an endgame anymore. At the end of the Mewtwo Returns movie , Mewtwo has the minds of most of Team Rocket's members erased, including Giovanni's, meaning that Giovanni probably no longer remembers why in the hell he started all of this in the first place.
He doesn't know what he eventually planned to do with this whole cloning thing. All he knows is that he gets a check every quarter from the Nurse Joys' Pokemon Centers, and that funds his repetitive Team Rocket missions. So why does it seem like the Pokemon anime lasts forever, all while going nowhere?
It's because Giovanni doesn't recall his greatest scheme. He had everything set up in his plan to spread influence and eventually take over the world. Now if only he could remember what that plan was Nathan is a Christian and says things like, "Good news! Your sins are forgiven! Carolyn wants to thank her genius son for sending her down this rabbit hole by pointing out the clone angle.
