'''Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|劇場版|げきじょうばん}}ポケットモンスター ベストウイッシュ {{tt|神速|しんそく}}のゲノセクト ミュウツー{{tt|覚醒|かくせい}}''' ''Pocket Monsters Best Wishes! the Movie - ExtremeSpeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens'') is the third and final {{series|Best Wishes}} movie and the sixteenth [[Pokémon movie]] overall. It was released in Japan on July 13, 2013. It premiered in {{pmin|the United Kingdom}} on {{wp|CITV}} on October 19, 2013 and {{pmin|the United States}} on {{wp|Cartoon Network}} on October 19, 2013.
 
In addition to its Japanese DVD release on December 18, 2013, this film is included in a "Mewtwo Box" collection that includes ''[[EP063|The Battle of the Badge]],'' ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]'', ''[[Mewtwo Returns]]'', and ''[[SS026|Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening]]''.
 
The movie features {{p|Genesect}} and {{p|Mewtwo}} in prominent roles. The "[[Genesect Army]]"—a group of five Genesect—appear in the film, led by a {{Shiny}} Genesect while the other four Genesect represent each of the four [[Drive]]s; [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] Mewtwo Y is also featured, prior to its debut in [[Pokémon X and Y]]. All five Genesect made an appearance prior to the release of the film in ''[[BW119|Meowth, Colress and Team Rivalry!]]'' during a flashback, while Mewtwo appeared in [[SS026Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening|a special episode]], serving as a prologue to the film.
 
In Japanese, {{pmin|Indonesia}}n, and {{pmin|the Philippines|Filipino}} theaters, the movie was featured with the [[Pikachu short]] ''[[PK25|Eevee & Friends]]''.
At the [[Pokémon Center]], Ash spots a photo of the flowers he had seen the Genesect looking at. Eric explains that they are an ancient species known as the Panna Lotus, which he transplanted from [[Absentia Natural Park]] to Pokémon Hills. That night, while Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Eric eat at the Pokémon Center, the Genesect begin rampaging in Pokémon Hills, driving all of the Pokémon out of the park, except for a {{p|Feraligatr}} that unsuccessfully tries to fight them off. Once they have the area to themselves, the Genesect begin spinning a giant cocoon from sturdy threads, but the thread reaches underground into a power station, disrupting the power to the city. Team Rocket sneaks into Pokémon Hills, and Ash and the others rush there after being warned by a {{p|Sableye}} they befriended earlier only to discover all the Pokémon outside as a result of the Genesect rampaging. Cilan returns to the Pokémon Center to help an injured {{p|Ralts}}. Ash, Eric, and Iris try to enter but the Electric and Ice Genesect push them away, so Eric shows them a workers' corridor used as an alternate entrance. Meanwhile, Team Rocket attempts to capture the Genesect with a bazooka but the Red Genesect spots them and drives them off. The tunnel leads Ash, Iris, and Eric to the underground power station, where they discover the threads wrapped around the generators.
 
Standing on a bridge overlooking the city, Mewtwo muses about its own origins. It flashes back to [[Mewtwo's creators|its creators]] conceiving it in a tank and later torturing it during an experiment, at which point it escaped. As it recalls how it once thought it was alone, it then flashes back to being [[SS026Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening|badly injured after a violent battle]] and being struck by a bolt of lightning, at which point it encountered a cave of wild Pokémon that took it in and cared for it. Having realized it wasn't alone after all, Mewtwo concludes that the Genesect deserve to reach the same conclusion. A pair of {{p|Starly}} arrive and inform Mewtwo of the Genesect Army's rampage in Pokémon Hills, so it sets off.
 
Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Eric reach the main area of Pokémon Hills and are approached by the Water Genesect, who apologizes for attacking them earlier, leading Ash to conclude that it couldn't refuse the Red Genesect's orders. The Water Genesect excitedly runs to a pool where it shows them the Panna Lotuses and tells them that it likes the flowers, which grew in its home. Iris realizes that the cocoon is the Genesect Army's nest and that they are trying to turn Pokémon Hills into their new home. When the lights begin flickering again, Eric realizes there is an emergency at the power station and rushes off to resolve it, for if it continues, the station will explode, blacking out New Tork City and sending it into chaos. The {{p|Feraligatr}} living in Pokémon Hills starts fighting with the Red Genesect again after breaking part of the cocoon, and when the Red Genesect uses {{m|Blaze Kick}} to knock the Feraligatr off a ledge, Mewtwo appears and rescues it with {{m|Psychic}}.
* This movie marks the first time that the final movie of an anime [[series]] features no Pokémon from the following generation.
** It does, however, feature a new form of evolution of an {{p|Mewtwo|old Pokémon}} that can only be obtained starting in the following generation.
** In addition, it is the first movie to not debut any new Pokémon or new forms of Pokémon in the {{pkmn|anime}}, as Mega Mewtwo Y and Genesect debuted in ''[[SS026|Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening]]'' and ''[[BW119|Meowth, Colress and Team Rivalry!]]'', respectively.
* This is the fifth consecutive movie in which {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} do not meet {{TRT}}. However, they are more prominently featured, attempting to capture Mewtwo and Genesect, as opposed to their brief, non-speaking cameos in the [[M15|previous movie]].
* This is the first movie since ''[[M09|Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea]]'' to not feature [[Shōko Nakagawa]] as part of its cast. Instead, she appears in the accompanying [[Pikachu short]], ''[[PK25|Eevee & Friends]]''.
