Mewtwo (Japanese: ミュウツー Mewtwo) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, it can Mega Evolve into two different forms: Mega Mewtwo X using Mewtwonite X and Mega Mewtwo Y using Mewtwonite Y.

It is a member of the Mew duo along with Mew.

Biology

Mewtwo is a Pokémon created by science. It is a bipedal, humanoid creature with some feline features. It is primarily gray with a long, purple tail. On top of its head are two short, blunt horns, and it has purple eyes. A tube extends from the back of its skull to the top of its spine, bypassing its neck. It has a defined chest and shoulders, which resemble a breastplate. The three digits on each hand and foot have spherical tips. Its tail is thick at the base, but thins before ending in a small bulb.

Mega Mewtwo X is larger and bulkier than its normal state. The horns on its head are longer, extending from V-shaped ridges on its forehead, pointed, and curved upward. It retains the tube behind its neck, but its eyes are now light blue, and it has large, purple growths over its shoulders. Its torso is smooth and small compared to its long, bulky limbs, and a Y-shaped line connects the collar and underbelly. Its forearms and thighs each have two raised ridges, and its digits are now longer and thinner. The tail is slightly shorter and stiffer than before and has a curled tip.

In comparison, Mega Mewtwo Y is smaller and lighter, losing its long tail and the tube behind its neck. However, it grows a long, purple appendage with a curled tip from the back of its head that is similar to its previous form's tail. On its head it has two pointed, backward-curving spikes and a half-ring structure connecting the base of each, with empty space inside. Its eyes are now red and slightly larger. The digits on its hands and feet are now purple and more bulbous, and the middle toe is longer than the others. A bumpy ridge similar to a sternum replaces the breastplate structure on its chest, but this form is still largely smoother than the other two.

Mewtwo was created after years of horrific gene splicing and DNA engineering experiments based on Mew. It is said to have the most savage heart among all Pokémon, lack compassion, and strike fear into its enemy with cold, glowing eyes. Because it was engineered to be the ultimate in battle, it can only think of defeating its foes. In the first movie, Mewtwo exemplified these vicious characteristics and was shown to be capable of levitation, telepathy, and mind control. However, it was later shown to be caring, protective, and even altruistic. Another Mewtwo in the anime shared its aversion to contact with others, but was much less belligerent. Mewtwo conserves energy by remaining motionless to unleash its full power in battle. It is also capable of materializing psychic waves in the form of its signature move, Psystrike. Though rarely seen in the wild, it is said to be resting in a dark cave somewhere.

History

According to the scientific logs found in the Pokémon Mansion of Cinnabar Island, Mewtwo was born of a pregnant Mew, found deep in the jungles of Guyana, whose embryo had been tampered with to alter its DNA. It was held and studied in the mansion where a scientist performed horrific gene-splicing experiments that made it vicious and extremely powerful. It eventually broke free of the Mansion, destroying it in the process, and fled. It can be encountered in Cerulean Cave, accessible only after a Trainer has proven his or her skill at the Indigo Plateau.

In the anime

Major appearances

Mewtwo in the anime

Mewtwo (original series)

While Mewtwo has been the Pokémon of focus of a movie and a special, it also made brief appearances in The Battle of the Badge and Showdown at the Po-ké Corral in its body armor. The first instance was when Giovanni used it to battle Gary's Arcanine and Nidoking. The second time was when Mewtwo totaled Giovanni's headquarters and flew off. While a scene involving Mewtwo and Giovanni did appear in It's Mr. Mime Time, it wasn't in the movie. Mewtwo made further appearances during the openings of Jirachi Wish Maker standing on a rooftop wearing a cape, and in the intro of Destiny Deoxys and The Rise of Darkrai, chasing a Mew.

Mewtwo (Best Wishes series)

Mega Mewtwo Y in the anime

Another Mewtwo and the Mega Evolution Mega Mewtwo Y debuted in the special episode Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening, a prologue to Genesect and the Legend Awakened. In the special, Mewtwo escaped from its creators and fought against a Pokémon hunter named Dirk, while Virgil helped protect it.

It appeared in Genesect and the Legend Awakened as both its normal form and Mega Mewtwo Y. At the beginning of the film, Mewtwo encountered the Genesect Army, who were looking for their home after being recreated. After a short conflict, the Army departed, and Mewtwo followed them to New Tork City. It met Ash and his friends, then got into a great conflict with the Red Genesect leading the Army.

Other

Trivia

  • Mewtwo was the first Pokémon seen in the English dub, as it appears at the very beginning of the first dub opening.
  • Mewtwo is the only Pokémon with a 680 base stat total that is not a version mascot, and is also the only one not part of any Legendary trios.
  • A quote from one of the Pokémon Mansion journals states that Mewtwo's birthday is February 6.
  • Mewtwo is depicted on the door to Bill's lighthouse in Mystery at the Lighthouse despite having only been seen by its creators and Team Rocket at that point in the anime.
  • Mewtwo comes before Mew in the Pokédex despite being created from its modified DNA.
  • The island country of Niue released a one-dollar coin featuring Mewtwo as part of a commemorative promotion for the Pokémon franchise, with Mewtwo on the reverse side and the nation's crest on the obverse.
  • Mewtwo's Mega Evolutions are tied for the highest base stat total of all Pokémon, both with 780.
    • Mega Mewtwo X has the highest base Attack of all Pokémon, as well as the highest single base stat and base Special Attack and Speed of all Fighting-type Pokémon.
      • Both Mega Medicham and Mega Mawile however, surpass it in terms of highest possible effective stat due to their respective Abilities, Pure Power and Huge Power. Mega Medicham has the highest possible Attack stat and highest possible single stat of all Fighting-type Pokémon and Mega Mawile having the highest possible Attack stat of all Pokémon.
      • Mega Mewtwo X's Attack increase is the largest single stat increase of all Mega Evolutions, at 80 points.
    • Mega Mewtwo Y has the highest base Special Attack of all Pokémon and the highest single base stat of all Psychic-type Pokémon.
  • Mega Mewtwo Y was the first Mega Evolution revealed to the public and the first to appear in the anime, even before Mega Evolution was announced.
    • Prior to the announcement of Mega Evolution, Mega Mewtwo Y was referred to as its 「覚醒した姿」 Awakened Form.[1] This term was also used in the manga adaptation of the movie.
  • Mewtwo was originally depicted as the only member of its species, being a clone of Mew. In the anime and manga, however, it is implied that several Mewtwo have been created.

Origin

Like Mew, Mewtwo has some feline characteristics, but its body structure is much larger as a result of gene splicing. Mewtwo also has some characteristics of a grey alien.

Name origin

Mewtwo is a combination of Mew (the Pokémon it originated from) and two (indicating that it is a clone). It also sounds somewhat similar to mutant (ミュータント).
