History
Mewtwo conserves energy by remaining motionless in order to unleash its full power in battle. It is also capable of materializing psychic waves in the form of its [[signature move]], {{m|Psystrike}}. Though {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Rare Pokémon|rarely seen}} in the wild, it is said to be resting in a dark cave somewhere.
 
===History===
According to the [[Pokémon Mansion journals|scientific logs]] found in the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} of [[Cinnabar Island]], Mewtwo was born from a pregnant {{p|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 [[Mr. Fuji|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]].
 
 
==Trivia==
[[File:Shadow Mewtwo.png|thumb|100px|right|Shadow Mewtwo's unique aura]]
* One of the [[Pokémon Mansion journals]] states Mewtwo's birthday is February 6.
** The same journal implies {{p|Mew}} was impregnated with the modified clone, just like with real-life cloning. All other depictions show Mewtwo being grown using laboratory equipment.
* Mewtwo was the first Pokémon seen in the English [[dub]], as it appears at the very beginning of the [[Pokémon Theme|first dub opening]].
* Mewtwo is tied with Mew for the most {{pkmn|anime}} opening appearances of any [[Legendary Pokémon]], with seven in Japan.
* Mewtwo is depicted on the door of [[Bill]]'s lighthouse in ''[[EP013|Mystery at the Lighthouse]]'', despite having only been seen by [[Team Rocket scientists|its creators]] and [[Team Rocket]] at that point in the anime. Similarly, Mewtwo's sprite was depicted as a portrait in [[Viridian Gym]], despite being a public area.
* The island country of {{wp|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 was originally depicted as the only member of its species, being a clone of Mew. In the {{pkmn|anime}} and {{pkmn|manga}}, however, it is implied that multiple Mewtwo have been created.
** Mega Mewtwo Y has the highest base Special Attack of all Pokémon and the highest single base stat of all Psychic-type Pokémon.
* Mewtwo and {{p|Charizard}} are currently the only Pokémon with two Mega Evolutions.
* In [[Pokémon GO]], Shadow Mewtwo is the only Shadow Pokémon that can't be caught in a [[Premier Ball]]. It also has a different aura from other Shadow Pokémon; instead of a purple fire, it is surrounded by an aura resembling its Psychic power.
