Mewtwo (ミュウツー Myuutsuu) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It was created using Mew's DNA.

Biology

Physiology

Mewtwo is a bipedal feline-like Pokémon. Its appearance is loosely based on Mew, with a more of a mutated humanoid look in addition to its feline traits. Its body is purple and it has three fingers on each hand. Mewtwo projects a faint purple aura when at full power.

Forms

Armored Mewtwo

Clefairy transformed into Mewthree

Mewtwo has an Anime/Manga exclusive form named Armored Mewtwo in the anime, and M2 Bind in the Manga. In the anime the form increases all of Mewtwo's Psychic abilities, and in the manga it allows Giovanni to control it. Mewtwo also has another form exclusive to the Pocket Monsters manga, where it takes on the DNA of a Clefairy, becoming a shorter, fatter and much stronger version of itself. Titling itself "Mewthree", it started its quest of cooking the best bacon ever until Satoshi managed to calm it down with his bacon. After going into a tantrum, screaming out "This isn't even my final form!", Mewthree split back into Clefairy and Mewtwo.

Characteristics

Mewtwo is highly adept at utilizing its Psychic powers, displaying telekinesis and telepathy as well. It utilizes its telepathy to communicate with humans and translate the Pokémon language. It uses its telekinesis to fly, block special abilities, and expunge people's recollections as optically discerned in Mewtwo Strikes Back.

Behavior

As evidence of its immense power, Mewtwo is by far one of the most domineering Pokémon in the series. Its power is so great to the point where it can endure immense torture in Mewtwo Returns, and teleport a lake miles long underground. Proven in the first Pokémon Movie, Mewtwo holds a large degree of pride in its personality. In fact, its general nature is so complex that it borderlines that of human levels with itself capable of learning and evolving just to get the upper hand in battle.

Personality

Mewtwo is extremely arrogant, cold, and aggressive. It is also anti social and does not speak or smile much, but it has been seen smirking.

Evolution

Mewtwo cannot evolve. However, it can Mega Evolve with the use of a Mewtwonite X or a Mewtwonite Y.

Pokkén Tournament

Pokkén Tournament Mewtwo

Pokkén Tournament features an alternately colored Mewtwo named Shadow Mewtwo with the ability to Mega Evolve without a Mega Stone.

Trivia

  • With the ability to mega evolve, Mewtwo is the second strongest Pokémon (along with Rayquaza) with a base stat total of 780.
  • Although it is a clone of Mew, it comes before Mew in the Pokédex.
  • Mewtwo is the only Pokémon thus far to be created via cloning, although not the only one to be created scientifically. One other example is Castform.
  • Mewtwo is the first Pokémon to receive a Mega Evolution, as well being one of the only Pokémon having two different Mega Evolutions, the second being Charizard.
  • Mewtwo has been noted as being the most powerful Pokémon in existence. The most recent note of this was in Mewtwo: Prologue to the Awakening, where it is stated twice.
  • Mewtwo is the first Legendary Pokémon to have a Mega Evolution.
  • Counting the original Mewtwo from the original series along with the Best Wishes Mewtwo, and due to the events of Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, there would be three known Mewtwo in the Pokémon World.
  • In all previous episodes and movies, Mewtwo's voice is heard as male, but in Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening and Genesect and the Legend Awakened, Mewtwo's voice is female.
  • It is never explained why Mewtwo has a tube-like portion of its body connecting the back of its head to the back of its body.
  • Mewtwo does not evolve from Mew; it was created with Mew's DNA.
  • Mega Mewtwo X has the highest Attack stat at 190 while Mega Mewtwo Y has the highest Special Attack stat at 194.
  • Mewtwo bears several similarities to the T-002 Tyrant from the Resident Evil series (both are artificial, bipedal creatures with pale skin created by antagonistic organizations as biological weapons, which then turned on their creators); however, as the first Pokémon games were released very close to the first Resident Evil game (Red and Green came out in Japan on February 27, 1996, while Resident Evil was released in Japan on March 22, 1996), the similarities are more than likely coincidental.

Origin

Mewtwo is based on a cat embryo with elements of gray aliens, salamanders, and possibly Giygas/Giegue, the alien final boss of both EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound, as Creatures, Inc., one of the companies behind Pokémon, also worked on both games as Ape, Inc.

Etymology

Mewtwo and Myūtsū come from the name of the Mythical Pokémon from which it was cloned, "Mew", and "two", referring to how its DNA is similar to Mew and could be considered its modern predecessor. It may also come from "mutant" given how much it deviated from Mew's original form.
