Synopsis

Dr. Fuji speaks of being sent out by Giovanni to look for Mew, supposedly the strongest Pokémon known to mankind. However, he also said that with the research funds, he wants to try recreating his daughter Amber, while Giovanni simply wants control of said most powerful Pokémon known to mankind. They start to bring back what they believe is a Mew Fossil and hopefully, will be enough to create a new super Pokémon. They begin research and start to create the DNA for a new Pokémon.

Mewtwo and Ambertwo begin to speak with each other through telepathy. Mewtwo asks her what are those sounds being made, to which Ambertwo simply replies that they are speaking. Mewtwo wonders what she is and she says that she is a girl. Mewtwo ponders if he is a Pokémon or a human and Ambertwo says it should never matter which one it is. The researchers figure out that the clones are speaking to each other. Fuji simply looks at the tubes in joy but anger. Ambertwo explains they call her Ambertwo but she is still Amber inside. Fuji hopes that his daughter will be able to live once more. His wife whines that he shouldn't try to bring their daughter back to life. She breaks up with him, explaining she can't stand to see him try this fruitless efforts and she leaves.

Fuji and a researcher talk about Giovanni happily for having the strongest Pokémon of all soon while Fuji hopes to have new knowledge of how to bring his daughter back to life. Ambertwo shows Mewtwo and the rest of the clones—Charmandertwo, Squirtletwo and Bulbasaurtwo, clones of Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur respectively—a memory where she used to live and shows him elements of life, wind, sun, rain and times of the day. Mewtwo asks Ambertwo if the Moon is the Sun and is told the moon is there to keep people from being afraid of the dark. The clones slowly fade away, including Ambertwo. "It feels like it's time to say goodbye," which leaves Mewtwo feeling very sad and alone. He fears being alone and Ambertwo told him that it will be alright and thanks for caring for her. She tells him being alive is wonderful. Mewtwo's uncontrollable sadness starts to affect the lab and they try to stabilize its powers by administering it with a memory-wiping serum, and they almost fail. Dr. Fuji is glad Mewtwo survived but outraged that his daughter is gone forever.

Mewtwo slowly grows up both mentally and physically. In its sleep, it wonders how it feels like it has been asleep for what seems like forever. It still has slight memories of Amber, and ponders on her last words. Finally, it wakes up at the laboratory, and sees a world completely different from before, realizing that everything it saw before was just a dream.

Mewtwo Strikes Back continues from this point.
