The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 5 Reveals Moff Gideon Using Baby Yoda to Create Snoke.
Yes, it definitely looks like Baby Yoda is the basis for Snoke. It was revealed in Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker that Snoke was a clone created by Emperor Palpatine. Exactly how Snoke came to be was always fuzzy. It was assumed he was a clone of the Emperor himself.
Moff Gideon captures Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian season 2, episode 6, "Chapter 14: The Tragedy," and in doing so, uses his Darksaber to make Star Wars' oldest jokes about lightsabers into canon.
In Mandalorian Season 2, we're told that Moff Gideon only wants Baby Yoda's blood, which seems to imply that he, and the cloners, want Grogu for some midi-chlorians. That said, in the Mando episode “The Siege,” we see some kind of abandoned Imperial cloning facility.
At the time of The Mandalorian story, it is pretty clear that Moff Gideon is not a Sith Lord even though he has the Darksaber in his possession nor does he have any links to the Jedi. He was given his own planetary system to oversee which is why he has the title “Moff.” …
Darth Mandalore considered himself to be the greatest Mandalorian, the greatest Sith Lord, and the greatest assassin of his time.
Gideon reveals he knows secret details about all of them, and refers to the Mandalorian by his real name, Din Djarin, marking the first time this name was revealed in the show. When the droid IG-11 arrives to assist the Mandalorian and his allies, a brief gunfight breaks out between them and the stormtroopers.
She also sat on the Jedi Council, and appeared to share Yoda's strong connection to the Force. Most recently, there is Grogu, a child from Yoda's species. He is also extremely Force sensitive, able to use quite a few powers as an infant, like lifting a mudhorn™, Force-healing, and even on occasion Force-choking.
The Empire decided to fully attack the planet after Bo-Katan and other Mandalorians fought back against the Empire's rule. The Mandalorians were just as threatening as the Jedi were to the Empire. As a result, they had to be purged, just like the Jedi. Anyone who fought back had to be exterminated.
The Mandalorian has long asked what Moff Gideon wants with Baby Yoda, and Season 2's "The Siege" may have answered that question. It appears that Baby Yoda's blood, in theory, is being used to create Snoke, a Palpatine clone, or possibly even both.
Finally, The Mandalorian season 2, episode 8 explicitly confirmed the connection between Dr. Pershing and Kamino; he was identified as an Imperial Clone Engineer.
A major character makes a surprise appearance at the end
First comes Darth Vader in one of his most epic fight scenes in the series. He cuts through dozens of Rebellion soldiers trying to deliver the plans for the Death Star to Leia's ship.
Snoke Was a Strand-Cast Created by Palpatine
Emperor Palpatine created Snoke to be his proxy through which he could regain his power. Although Snoke was bio-engineered in a lab on Exegol, he was a strand-cast, not a clone.
"Snoke" was the identity adopted by an artificial strandcast created in the dark science laboratory on the planet Exegol by the loyalists of the Sith Eternal cult, at the behest of Dark Lord of the Sith and Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious, during their cloning experiments during the reign of the Galactic Empire.
By around 9 ABY, Gideon was in fact alive as a leader of an Imperial remnant after the Empire's decline, where he sought out a high-value asset known as Grogu, a Force-sensitive youngling necessary as a blood donor for his experiments.
The Mandalorians were a proud warrior race, and their bids for galactic conquest sparked numerous wars with the Jedi and the Republic. Unfortunately, centuries of conflict also took their toll on the planet itself, as so many wars and civil wars left the surface of Mandalore devastated and barren.
After the Great Purge of Mandalore, the Empire desecrated Mandalore and Bo-Katan lost possession of the Darksaber. She fled the planet, but continued to lead the Nite Owls and was intent on eventually reclaiming the Darksaber and Mandalore.
Duties. Mand'alor, rendered as Mandalore in Galactic Basic Standard, was the title assumed by the sole leader of the Mandalorian people. Their Protectors established a balance of control in the Mandalorians' warrior clan society.
Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars.
We know of exactly three members of Grogu's species: Yoda, Yaddle, and Grogu. Yoda and Yaddle were both monastic Jedi warriors during the height of the Jedi Order. Yaddle was Yoda's subordinate in the workplace.
Grogu's mother is either Yaddle or some other female member of Yoda's species, but he has no father. Because just like Anakin, Grogu was born off the Will of the Force, with no dad, and that explains why he's so powerful at an age that's considered an infant for Yoda's species.

9 Din Djarin Is Force-Sensitive
But Mandalorians are trained to have Jedi-like reflexes to be able to overpower them, some of their armor and weapons even mimic Jedi abilities, like their sonic repulsors that knock objects away like a Force push.
As soon as she said the word Jedi, Moff Gideon was clearly terrified. Without seeing him, meeting him or even knowing that it was Luke, Gideon grabbed a blaster and tried to kill Grogu and himself. Moff Gideon was not just afraid of being taken captive. He was afraid of meeting the legend that was Luke Skywalker.
