Mewtwo just wants to live in peace. No such luck! Giovanni, head of Team Rocket, wants to take over the world — again! To do that, he'll need Mewtwo's psychic powers and he'll stop at nothing to get them — even destroying Mewtwo's friends. Now, Mewtwo must choose to fight back or join Team Rocket.

It's the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. Pokémon against Pokémon. Who will triumph?
