In Japanese, it is the 48th and last book. It is 18 pages long. The English first edition of the book, printed in March of 2001, was originally titled Mewtwo is Watching you!, with later printings contracting the title.



In this entry in the popular series, Mewtwo, watches over two Pokémon as they play.This spooks the Pokémon pair, but not to worry. As it happens, Mewtwo just enjoys watching them play!


The story opens with four Pokémon at play; a Clefairy, a Pikachu, a Psyduck, and a Charmander. As they play with a ball, Mewtwo watches them from a hill in the background. This makes the Pokémon too nervous to play, and they leave, planning to regroup the next day.

The following day, the group were playing a game with various stones. Mewtwo again observes the Pokémon from a distance, this time holding a large stone in its hand. The other Pokémon become uneasy, worried that Mewtwo would throw the rock at them. Deciding to leave, the group announce that they would play "train" the next day and instruct each other to bring a rope.

As the Pokémon play their game the next day, it attracts the attention of other Pokémon, including Mewtwo, who watches from a distance, rope in hand. Other Pokémon try to join in, which breaks the rope and causes an argument. During the scuffle, Mewtwo jumps down from its perch, swinging its rope above everyone's heads, which scares the other Pokémon. However, the rope looped around them, forming a longer train, with Mewtwo at the lead. The Pokémon realize that Mewtwo simply wanted to play with them.
