  • In an interview with Animerica magazine, Toshihiro Ono revealed he was instructed to include Mewtwo's origin story in the manga adaptation. Since Ono only had the movie's script to work with (the original theatrical version of the movie was released approximately two months after he had begun work on the manga, with the prologue not being written before the main series hiatus and subsequent episode delays caused by the EP038 incident) and the radio drama The Birth of Mewtwo had not been created yet, Ono created his own original explanation of Mewtwo's origin.
