Mewtwo (Japanese: ミュウツー Mewtwo) is a Template:Type2 legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It is among the most well-known Pokémon, being the star of the first movie, and in Generation I, the most powerful Pokémon in regards to its total base stats.

It is not known to evolve to or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Mewtwo is one of the first Pokémon created by science. The scientists who created it dreamed of creating the world's strongest Pokémon. It is widely considered to be unique, due to the fact that only one was genetically created. However, this has yet to be fully confirmed.

Physiology

Mewtwo is a creature with a humanoid posture, but has many feline features. Mewtwo's body is grayish-purple with a purple underside and a long, purple tail. Mewtwo has three circular digits on each appendage. It has purple eyes (some times blue when attacking) and two short ears.

One of Mewtwo's most notable features is the tube extending from the back of its skull to its spine. It is most likely a secondary spinal cord, or a system of nerves, allowing for an increased amount of blood and sensory transmission to the brain, heightening its psychic powers.

Gender differences

This Pokémon is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Mewtwo is highly skilled with Psychic powers. It can levitate through use of telekinesis, speak telepathically, and take control of another living being's mind. It has a powerful signature move, Psycho Break, and it is also known for its powerful Shadow Ball and Aura Sphere. Mewtwo is also capable of wielding various types of attacks (but to a lesser extent than Mew). To exert its powerful psychic abilities, it will stay motionless for long periods of time in intense concentration to raise its capabilities to the maximum power.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Mewtwo fights with a highly skilled combination of Psywaves and a giant spoon for long range and close range battles, respectively.

In the anime, Mewtwo also has the ability to telekinetically create massive hurricanes thought to be powerful enough to destroy the planet and is constantly protected from harm inside a reflective sphere of psychic energy. Mewtwo has also stated it can block a Pokémon's special abilities in battle.

Behavior

Due to its early visions of the human race, Mewtwo is known to be very aggressive and thinks of nothing but battling and defeating its foes. Its viciousness results from the repeated recombining of its DNA and the loss of its friend Amber. During the anime special Mewtwo Returns, however, Mewtwo seems to have developed a very protective and guardian-like nature to the point of surrendering to Giovanni just to keep its fellow clones safe.

Habitat

Mewtwo, being a cloned Pokémon, has no natural habitat. However, it has been known to make its hideout in the lowest level of Cerulean Cave. Also, in the anime, Mewtwo has been seen roaming a large city under the cover of night. It generally likes to be in dark solitude, such as the darkness of a deep cave. However, in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red and Blue Rescue Team, this artificial Pokémon is said to sleep in a cave located in the west.

Diet

Unknown.

In the games

According to the scientific logs found in the Pokémon Mansion of Cinnabar Island, Mewtwo was born of a pregnant Mew whose embryo had been tampered with to alter its DNA. It was held and studied in the mansion where the scientists, including Blaine and Dr. Fuji, performed horrific gene-splicing experiments that made it vicious and extremely powerful. It eventually broke free of the Mansion (destroying it in the process) and fled. The player will encounter it in Cerulean Cave, which is unable to be accessed until after he or she has proven his or her skill at the Indigo Plateau.

Major appearances

Mewtwo (anime)

While Mewtwo has been the Pokémon of focus of two movies, it also made brief appearances in The Battle of the Badge and Showdown at the Poké-Corral in its body armor. The first instance was when Giovanni used it to battle Gary's Arcanine and Nidoking. The second time was when Mewtwo totaled Giovanni's headquarters and flew off. While a scene involving Mewtwo and Giovanni did appear in It's Mr. Mime Time, it wasn't in the movie.

Other

A mirage Mewtwo appears in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon and is the most powerful Pokémon controlled by the Mirage Master.

Minor appearances

Mewtwo appears chasing a Mew during the opening of The Rise of Darkrai.

In the manga

In the Magical Pokémon Journey manga

During the final volume of Magical Pokémon Journey, Hazel goes to a forest in another dimension to find Mew so it can grant her a wish, and gets trapped by Mewtwo.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Mewtwo (Adventures)

Mewtwo has a similar origin and personality to the Mewtwo that appeared in the anime. It is a genetically engineered Pokémon created by Blaine for Team Rocket by splicing Mew's DNA with his own. Blaine later defected from Team Rocket and hid himself away, as both he and Mewtwo were suffering from an illness caused by a shared psychic link due to their mutual DNA. Mewtwo went on a rampage and hid itself in the Cerulean Cave, but Red was able to capture him with a Master Ball and return him to Blaine so he could attempt to show the mutant compassion and, if possible, find a cure for their illness. Blaine and Mewtwo fought against Lance two years later, but were defeated when their condition weakened them and Blaine collapsed. The pair were later cured by the flames of Entei whom Blaine had earlier befriended and partnered with. Later, Blaine left Mewtwo on his own, and the legendary Pokémon only returned when he learned of Giovanni's plans to use Deoxys for nefarious purposes. Mewtwo joined up with Red to attempt to defeat Deoxys and Giovanni, and with Red's help managed to defeat the duo after a tough fight that nearly killed him. It has a Quiet nature.

In the Pokémon Get da ze! manga

Shū's father is portrayed as having been the creator of Mewtwo after a failed five year search for the elusive Mew.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Main article: Mewtwo (Pocket Monsters)

Mewtwo is a Pokémon owned by Blue in the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga. Mewtwo becomes a "gag Pokémon" when its DNA becomes mixed with Clefairy's.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

File:Mewtwo Melee.jpg
Mewtwo in SSBM

Mewtwo is a playable character and is unlocked after a lot of playing in VS. Mode; either after 700 matches or 20 hours of combined play. The time taken is reduced by the number of human players, so Mewtwo can be unlocked after just five hours if four players are playing for the whole time.

Due to its large body and light weight, Mewtwo is easy to knock off the stage. In addition, Mewtwo is slow, lacks any fast defensive options, and also has general problems with some of its other moves such as lengthy charging and ending lag.

To make up for this, out of all other playable Pokémon, Mewtwo is the strongest in terms of percent-racking; has a tail with longer reach than most other fighters' moves; has an excellent recovery; has some of the most powerful throws in the game; and, when charged, has the strongest projectile of all playable characters (Shadow Ball).

Trophy information

Classic Mode

A genetically created Pokémon, Mewtwo is the result of many long years of research by a solitary scientist. Although Mewtwo was born from the genes of the legendary Pokémon Mew, its size and character are far different than its ancestor. Its battle abilities have been radically heightened, making it ruthless.

Adventure Mode

As Mewtwo relies mostly on its powerful brain, there are times when it scarcely uses its arms and legs. Since Mewtwo spends much of its time floating, it flies far when struck. Shadow Ball traces a jagged path once released: the longer Mewtwo holds it, the more powerful it becomes. Mewtwo uses Confusion to spin its foes around.

All-Star Mode

Mewtwo is definitely not a speedy character, but its ESP-powered grab and throw moves are comparatively strong. Teleport has a short range, but doesn't leave it open to attack. It's best used as an escape move during disturbances. Mewtwo can daze a foe if it makes eye contact and uses Disable; the move is useless unless Mewtwo is facing its enemy.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Mewtwo was cut from the sequel's roster. Internal data features data for seven characters not in the roster; Mewtwo included. It is currently unknown if it will be possible to utilize this data in any way. Known existing data within the game include: a Classic Mode "Congratulations" picture for Mewtwo; unused voice files and sound effects; and even an empty audio file for the Wiimote, whenever he would be selected on the playable roster. While there is a possibility that some of the data for Mewtwo was merely recycled from Melee, recent hacking has proven that Mewtwo was seriously considered for the game, having the most scrapped in-game files than any of the other cut characters. Instead, Mewtwo appears as a collectible trophy after clearing All-Star mode on Intense difficulty.

He was most likely replaced by Lucario, since he shares several similar moves with it.

Trophy information

A Genetic Pokémon. This legendary Pokémon was based on a recombination of Mew's DNA, created by a scientist after years of research. However, Mewtwo greatly differs from Mew in both size and personality and is said to be the most twisted and savage Pokémon ever. Mewtwo has incredibly high combat abilities and uses Psychic- type attacks.

Merchandise

Mewtwo was one of the first four Pokémon designs revealed when the Pokémon 151 brand was first announced. In the shirt design, two Mewtwo are holding a 150 Crest with a DNA strand as its header. On top of it is a crown with a Poké Ball as its jewel.

Trivia

  • Mewtwo was the first Pokémon seen in the English dub, as it appears at the very beginning of the first dub opening.
  • Mewtwo has the second highest Special Attack in the game, surpassed only by the Attack Forme of Deoxys.
    • Therefore it has the highest Special Attack of all non-event Pokémon.
    • Mewtwo and Lugia have the highest base stat total of all Psychic-types.
  • In Generation I, Mewtwo had a base stat total of 590, the highest at the time. The Generation II special split increased its stat total to 680, where it was later joined by several other Pokémon and finally surpassed by Arceus's total of 720.
    • Mewtwo is the only Pokémon with a 680 base stat total that is not a version mascot.
  • A Shiny Mewtwo from Gold, Silver, and Crystal will appear black instead of green when viewed through Pokémon Stadium 2.
  • A journal quote from the Pokémon Mansion states that Mewtwo's birthday is February 6.
  • Mewtwo can learn damaging moves of all types except Dragon.
  • An image of Mewtwo is seen on the door to Bill's lighthouse in Mystery at the Lighthouse, even though Mewtwo was a secret Pokémon in the anime at that time.
  • Although intended to be a stronger variation of Mew in all respects, Mewtwo can learn fewer moves, has two lower potential Pokéathlon stats, and has a lower base Defense and Special Defense.
  • Although Mewtwo is a clone of Mew, it comes before Mew in the Pokédex.
  • While Mewtwo has a masculine voice when communicating through telepathy, Mew has a feminine cry.
  • While most other legendary Pokémon that are its equal in terms of base stat totals have a signature move, Mewtwo did not receive one until Generation V, when it became the only Pokémon able to learn Psycho Break.
  • Mewtwo's base stats are numerically the same as Lugia and Ho-Oh's, only with a different arragement.
  • Mewtwo's design, as well as his powers, are reminescent of Giygas, from the Earthbound series, concretely the ones shown in the first game. Said character may have influenced Mewtwo's design, as Creatures,inc, the developers of the Earthbound series, is a branch of Game Freak.

Origin

Like Mew, Mewtwo has some feline characteristics. Its body structure is much larger as a result of gene-splicing.

Name origin

Mewtwo's name is a combination of Mew, referring to the Pokémon on which it was based, and two, indicating that it is a clone of Mew. It also sounds somewhat phonetically similar to the English word mutant (myūtanto).
