Hey, I found this page with photographs of the pages of the original CoroCoro manga. I was going to add it to external links but I'd like to get a consensus first. [1] KantoRules 08:24, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Differences with the movie

I haven't read this manga, but from what I've heard Mewtwo's birth and the part where Mewtwo kills Fuji are different from the movie, and this is usually explained with "According to an interview with Ono Toshihiro on Viz's website, the manga artist got the script and other production material for the movie in April 1998. At that time, The Birth of Mewtwo story hadn't been made public yet, so Mr. Ono ended up creating his own version of the story that ended up contradicting what happens in both the CD drama and the animated short". This confuses me because even without the radio drama and its animated adaptation, Mewtwo's birth and Fuji's death are told in the movie's prologue. The prologue seems to have been created after the seizure incident, since the three tie-in episodes ended up airing after the movie, but if what Ono didn't receive was the prologue, than it is not clear how he could have featured Fuji at all (since he is not in the movie minus the prologue). --Abcd (talk) 16:54, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
