Trivia

  • If this card were to follow the normal TCG type rules, it would be a Psychic card.
  • This card seems to be partially based on Rocket's Mewtwo from Gym Challenge, featuring similar Hypnoblast and Psyburn attacks, and a Darkness Switch attack that functions almost identically to that card's Juxtapose attack (aside from not requiring a coin flip like that one did).

Origin

Mewtwo was owned by Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, for a brief time in the anime.
