Mewtwo Returns (Part 2) (MEWTWO SAGA - ミュウツー!我ハココニ在リ (2) Mewtwo Saga - Mewtwo! I Am Here (Part 2)) is the second part of the special Mewtwo Returns.


When everyone gets inside Team Rocket's balloon, they see the approaching Combat Unit, and Domino, revealing herself in league with Team Rocket Organization as elite Agent 009 (or, as she calls herself, The Black Tulip), pops their balloon and sends everyone else plummeting onto the mountain while she returns to Giovanni to report on Mewtwo's current status. Giovanni's operation to capture Mewtwo begins in earnest, with Ash and his friends caught up in the core of it.

Giovanni eventually succeeds in capturing Mewtwo with the threat that the other Pokémon clones would be his to capture and experiment if Mewtwo didn't comply. When Mewtwo submits he reluctantly steps into the light Giovanni's 2 robots made. Mewtwo is then raised toward Giovanni, as the ball of light suddenly increases in intensity, turning dark pink. Mewtwo screams in agony, he shudders in pain, clenching his eyes shut, as pink electricity runs through him. This forces him to strain into an erect suffering position, his arms outstretched, and fists and feet squeezed together. After just a few moments, Mewtwo, bearing immense pain from the machines' powers, grows weaker and droops. All that's left are the moans and grunts from him.

The part ends with Jessie and James in the prison cell, wondering what'll happen if Meowth doesn't return. They then say "Team Rocket is never blasting off again!", and the part comes to a close on a cliffhanger.


  • In the original airing, this was edited to remove the indication of being a three part mid-series special. All DVD releases, including the dub, however treat it as a film feature special somewhere longer than an hour, rather than a three part special, with it cut on the original airings in the Japanese version due to all three parts airing on the same day. As far as the dub is concerned, there is no theme song for the opening, unlike the Japanese version which contained normal opening and ending theme songs.
