Template:Incomplete synopsis book


Here comes Mewtwo, the Super-Pokémon - and it's trying to take over the world! [That is NOT a good thing!!]

Scientists cloned the legendary Pokémon Mew to create Mewtwo, the most powerful Pokémon in the world. Only no one counted on a mad, mean Mewtwo! Now it wants to rule, and it will stop at nothing to get its way.

Mewtwo sets a trap for the world's best Pokémon trainers. It plans to steal their Pokémon and make super-nasty clones - clones strong enough to defeat all the real Pokémon. Even Ash and Pikachu are no match for Mewtwo and its cunning copies.

Now only Mew can save the world from Mewtwo's Poké power. Mew, go! It's a double-trouble Pokémon showdown.
