Mewtwo (ミュウツー) is the 150th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Psychic Type, and it is known as the Genetic Pokémon.

Mewtwo's primary ability is Pressure. Whenever an opponent uses a move against a Pokémon that has this ability, the PP of said move is reduced by 2 instead of 1. Unnerve, an ability reserved for Mewtwo from the Dream World, prevents the opposing Pokémon from using their held Berry while the Pokémon with Unnerve is in battle.

Mewtwo does not evolve, nor does it have a pre-evolved form through the first five Generations. Starting in Generation VI, however, a Mewtwo can Mega Evolve into Mega Mewtwo X in Pokémon X or Mega Mewtwo Y in Pokémon Y by using that game's version of Mewtwonite.

Mewtwo cannot breed as a result of being a Legendary Pokémon. It takes Mewtwo 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Mewtwo takes the appearance of a creature that has been genetically altered. Its most distinguishing features is an extension that runs from the base of Mewtwo's head to the base of its neck, and its purple tail, resemblant of Mew's tail, albeit thicker. Due to these genetic alterations, it is believed to be the strongest Pokémon in not only the Kanto region, but the entire series.

[edit] Gender Differences

Mewtwo, like Mew, is genderless. However, it appears to act more male than female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Mewtwo has appeared in most of the main Pokémon games. It has appeared in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow, FireRed, LeafGreen, Heart Gold and Soul Silver in Cerulean Cave after defeating the Elite Four. Heart Gold and Soul Silver players will still have to get all 8 Kanto Gym Badges before entering, however, and Flash is required due to how dark the cave is.

[edit] Spin-Off Games

Mewtwo appears as a Boss Pokémon in many of the Spin-Off games that it has appeared in. After getting all 10 Championship Trophies in Pokémon Stadium, you earn the option of battling Mewtwo. Defeating it unlocks the R2 (Round 2) Tournaments; beat those and you'll face a more difficult Mewtwo. Mewtwo also appears in the Rival's team after beating all the tournaments in Pokémon Stadium 2, alongside Lugia and Ho-oh.

Mewtwo appears at an unknown location and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Mewtwo can be found at the 99th Floor of the Western Cave in the first set of Mystery Dungeon games. Mewtwo appears in two vastly different locations in the second round of Mystery Dungeon Games. In Explorers of Time & Explorers of Darkness it appears at Aegis Cave DPB5F when it is Dark Only or Dark Crater B6. In both instances a Stone Plate or Mystery Part is required. Mewtwo is located at the Sky Stairs in Explorers of Sky. Mystery Dungeon 3 has Mewtwo located in each game's respective Secret area at Floor 30.

Mewtwo is the final boss of the main storyline in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs. You have to battle it twice: once with its normal powers and a second time combined with the powers of the Golden Steelhead Armor. This accounts for Mewtwo's only appearance in the Pokémon Ranger series.

Complete Battle Roayle EX-6 in Pokémon Rumble Blast and Mewtwo will be findable at any of the game's Factory stages.

In Pokémon Conquest, have Facilities at Level 3 and clear Kenshin's Episode. Once this is done, head to Illusio to encounter Mewtwo.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Mewtwo has appeared in 15 different sets, seven promos and the 10th Movie Commemoration Set in Japan. It is listed as a Rare card or greater in all sets that it has appeared in. Mewtwo is listed as a Rare Card in the Base, Gym Challenge, Neo Destiny (3 Star hidden), Expedition (2), EX Ruby and Sapphire, EX Team Rocket Returns, EX Delta Species, EX Holon Phantoms (2), Majestic Dawn, and Legends Awakened sets.

Only three Mewtwo cards are listed as a Super Rare Card: a Lv. X card in the Legends Awakening set, and two Mewtwo EX in the Next Destinies set.

[edit] Other Appearances

Mewtwo makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee as an unlockable character. Mewtwo was replaced by Lucario in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Mewtwo made its initial appearance in the episode The Battle of the Badge, where it easily defeated Gary's Arcanine and Nidoking. It escaped from Team Rocket's Headquarters in the episode Showdown at the Poké Corral, setting up the events for Mewtwo Strikes Back.

In the anime Team Rocket, led by Giovanni create Mewtwo. Dr. Fuji is part of this as he hopes to clone his dead daughter so she can live. They get a Mew eyelash deep in a forest and use that DNA to create the clone, Mewtwo.

A different Mewtwo appeared in the 10th Anniversary Special episode The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon. This Mewtwo was created by Dr. Yung and was a mirage Pokémon. Dr. Yung used all of Pikachu's memories to give Mewtwo power. At the end of the special there is a showdown. Ash, Misty, Oak, May, and the one mirage Pokemon that isn't evil and is a "flawed specimen" Mew. Mew and Mewtwo end up having the final battle in the end and Mew gives up its life to defeat Mewtwo. Thus, this Mewtwo ceases to exist.

[edit] Movies

Mewtwo's primary appearances were the film Mewtwo Strikes Back, in which it had escaped the clutches of Team Rocket and was the main antagonist of the film. Its storyline continued in Mewtwo Returns, in which Giovanni hadn't forgotten about the Pokémon that had escaped his clutches and aimed to take it back.

Mewtwo would be reduced to cameo roles in Jirachi Wishmaker, The Rise of Darkrai, and Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

Mewtwo returns in a starring role in the upcoming film Genesect and the Legend Awakened, and in this film, transforms into its Awakened Form, also known as Mega Mewtwo Y.

[edit] Manga

Mewtwo would be created by Blaine in the Manga while he was in the employ of Team Rocket. He would artificially engineer Mewtwo by combining his own DNA with the eyelashes of a Mew. Blaine would have a genetic connection with Mewtwo, which enabled him to track Mewtwo down and capture it with the assistance of Red, and fights alongside Yellow in the Incident at Cerise Island, and Mewtwo would be freed when Entei burned the connection.

Mewtwo would return to face off with Team Rocket once again, teaming with Red, Blue and Green to stop their scheme involving Deoxys. In an epic battle, Mewtwo would barely emerge victorious. However, a collision of Mewtwo's powers with that of a separate energy field would render Red, Blue, Yellow, Green and Silver petrified in stone.

Mewtwo makes appearances in Chapters 16, 34 35, 47, 64, 79-82, 162, and 283-302.
