'''Mewtwo''' (in Japanese: '''ミュウツー''', '''''Mewtwo'''''), also known as the '''Genetic Pokémon''', is a central antagonist of the ''Pokémon'' franchise. He is a psychic genetic Pokémon cloned from Mew, the Legendary Pokémon ancestor of all Pokémon. Interestingly, Nintendo (for a time) considered Mewtwo the secondary antagonist of the franchise, behind [[Giovanni (Pokémon)|Giovanni]] and [[Meowth]]. Mewtwo can be considered evil, but more misunderstood because of the way that it was created. Mewtwo later [[w:c:hero:Mewtwo|redeemed and helps the main cast]].
==In the Games==
 
   
In the main Pokemon games, Mewtwo is only encountered in Cerulean Cave, with no real storyline significance. He is seen at level 70 in ''Red'', ''Blue'', ''Yellow'', ''FireRed'', ''LeafGreen'', ''HeartGold'' and ''SoulSilver''.
+
In the anime, he was voiced by Philip Bartlett, and later Jay Synder (also known by his alias Dan Green). In the ''Super Smash Bros.'' franchise, he was voiced by Masachika Ichimura in ''Melee'' and the late Keiji Fujiwara in ''Wii U/3DS'' and ''Ultimate''. In ''Detective Pikachu'', he was voiced by Chris Smith.
   
Mewtwo also has a role in some of the spin-offs. He is a villain in ''Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - Red/Blue Rescue Team'', he is at the end of a 99 floor dungeon. He attacks and defeats Blastoise & Charizard when they attempt to face him and can be fought as a boss after Ho-oh has been recruited. He is defeated by the rescue team and joins them.
+
==Appearance==
  +
Mewtwo as a clone of Mew so it looks pretty similar to Mew but with some differences. Mewtwo is a tall 6'07 bipedal Pokemon that is mostly gray all around but with a long purple tail, it also has short horns on its head, and a tube that extends from the back of its skull to the top of its spine, bypassing its neck. It also has a defined chest and shoulders, Its tail is thick at the base, but thins before ending in a small bulb.
   
Mewtwo plays a bigger role in ''Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs'', where he is the main Pokemon used by the main antagonist, Dr. Edward. It is controlled by the use of the golden armour. After being defeated the first time, Purple Eyes enhances and controls Mewtwo and uses it himself. After his defeat he banishes Purple Eyes in anger and the leaves.
+
Mega Mewtwo X is much larger and bulkier than its normal state. The horns on its head are longer and curve upwards more and are more straight than before, its eyes are also now light blue, and it has large, purple growths over its shoulders. Its torso is much smaller than its bulky hands and the rest of its body. Its forearms and thighs each have two raised ridges and its digits are now longer and thinner. The tail is also slightly shorter
==In the anime==
 
<span style="font-size:16px;">Anime</span>
 
   
Mewtwo was created by Team Rocket by cloning DNA from a Mew fossil. It was Team Rocket&apos;s intention to create the most powerful Pokemon. However, Mewtwo was angered by the team as he heard that he was to be controlled by them, and that he may not be part of God's creation (Japanese version), and in his fury, destroyed the lab where he was created with his intense psychic powers. He then allied himself with Giovanni under the promise of learning to control his powers, although he later rebelled from Giovanni after learning that Giovanni's claim of partnership had been a lie, and he had already been sickened by Team Rocket's actions towards pokemon. Believing humans as oppressors of Pokemon, he vowed to exterminate humans and all Pokemon that sided with them, believing it to be his "purpose". He also wishes to exterminate Mew, as he believed he was vastly superior to his genetic counterpart. He eventually saw the errors of his ways shortly after Ash Ketchum sacrificed himself to stop their fighting, and removed their memories to avoid being tracked down.
+
In comparison to X, Mega Mewtwo Y is smaller and lighter, it loses its long tail and the tube behind its neck. However, it grows a long, purple part on its head with a curled tip from the back of its head that is similar to its previous form's tail. Its eyes are now red and slightly larger.
   
His back story was expanded upon, where he interacted with several clones of a Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, as well as a clone of Amber, the daughter of Dr. Fuji. He was eventually distraught over his friends, especially Amber's premature death, which also resulted in the scientists injecting him with a serum that removed his memory of her, which is strongly implied to have impacted his behavior in the film.
+
==Powers and Abilities==
===The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon===
+
Mewtwo is highly skilled with Psychic powers. It can levitate through use of telekinesis, speak telepathically, and can take control of another living being's mind. It has a powerful signature move, Psystrike (psychic wave manipulation), and it is also known for its powerful Shadow Ball and Aura Sphere. Mewtwo is also capable of wielding various types of attacks (but to a lesser extent than Mew). So as to exert its powerful psychic abilities, it will stay motionless for long periods of time in intense concentration to raise its capabilities to their maximum power.
:''Main Article: [[Mirage Mewtwo]]''
 
   
Mewtwo makes an appearance as the secondary antagonist in the Special: The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon. However, in this version, Mewtwo is a Mirage Pokemon created by [[Dr. Yung]].
+
Its also shown to be able to teleport with ease and fast as well. It is shown to just be fast in general mostly in the air. It can also recover near-fatal damage on a whim.
   
===In Pokémon Origins===
+
In its Mega forms, it is even more powerful, shown to be able to go even faster is far stronger and can take more hits.
Mewtwo appears as the ultimate adversary of Red in Pokémon Origins. As in the games, it is encountered in Cerulean Cave after defeating Blue. In a hard battle that wiped out almost all of Red's Pokémon, Mewtwo is defeated by Charizard after it Mega Evolves into Mega Charizard X. With Mewtwo captured after several tries, Red then had all 150 known Pokémon.
 
   
===Pokemon Adventures manga===
+
In the ''Pokémon Adventures'' manga, Mewtwo fights with a highly skilled combination of Psywaves and a giant spoon for long-range and close-range battles, respectively.
In the manga he was created during the ''Red'', ''Blue'', and ''Green'' story arc by the Gym Leader and Team Rocket&apos;s former scientist Blaine who used one of his own cells in the process though as a side effect whenever Mewtwo fights it causes Blaine immense pain due to the cellular connection with Blaine. Mewtwo first appeared attacking Blaine and it was only with Red&apos;s strategy that Mewtwo is caught in a Pokeball.
 
   
In the ''Yellow'' arc by this point he and Blaine have become good friends and fight alongside Yellow against Lance of the Elite Four, but Blaine was forced to call him back before he died due to their connection, though Yellow with Red&apos;s Chu (Pikachu) would use the same strategy Mewtwo tried earlier to win.
+
==Personality==
+
{{Main|Mewtwo (anime)#Personality}}
In the ''Gold'', ''Silver'', and'' Crystal ''arc during the Gym Leader completion, thanks to the powers of Entei&apos;s holy flames, Mewtwo&apos;s connection to Blaine is severed to where Mewtwo can now fight without affecting his creator, allowing him to leave Cinnabar Island and be free.
 
 
In the'' FireRed ''and ''LeafGreen ''arc Mewtwo reappears and aids Red, Blue, and Green against Deoxys and Giovanni.
 
 
==Special abilities==
 
Mewtwo is highly skilled with Psychic powers. It can levitate through use of [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Telekinesis telekinesis], [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Telepathy speak telepathically], and [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Mind_Control Control Control take control of another living being's mind]. It has a powerful signature move, [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Psychic_Wave_Manipulation Psystrike], and it is also known for its powerful [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Shadow_Ball_Projection Shadow Ball] and [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Aura_Generation Aura Sphere]. Mewtwo is also capable of wielding various types of attacks (but to a lesser extent than Mew). To exert its powerful psychic abilities, it will stay motionless for long periods of time in intense concentration to raise its capabilities to their maximum power.
 
 
In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Mewtwo fights with a highly skilled combination of Psywaves and a giant spoon for long range and close range battles, respectively.
 
 
In the anime, Mewtwo also has the ability to telekinetically create a massive hurricane and is constantly protected from harm inside a [http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Psychic_Force-Field_Generation reflective sphere of psychic energy]. In the English dub, it is claimed that the hurricane was powerful enough to destroy the planet, as well as Mewtwo being able to block a Pokémon's "special abilities." Mewtwo can also "communicate" with humans via telepathy, and was also capable of instant regeneration, allowing him to survive what would normally be fatal blows. This was especially evident when a computer, deducing Mewtwo as a threat shortly after bursting out of its containment field, shot Mewtwo with a laser that was potent enough to temporarily kill Mewtwo, only to regenerate from its wound and revive itself, as well as it regenerating from a flamethrower blast. According to the dub of ''Mewtwo Returns'', his psychic abilities were ineffective against automated machines.

Villain Overview
I was not born a Pokémon, I was created! And my creators have used and betrayed me! So... I stand alone!
~ Mewtwo to Giovanni.
Humans cannot be trusted. I've told you this. It seems you forgotten that, as well.
~ Mewtwo to Detective Pikachu.

Mewtwo (in Japanese: ミュウツー, Mewtwo), also known as the Genetic Pokémon, is a central antagonist of the Pokémon franchise. He is a psychic genetic Pokémon cloned from Mew, the Legendary Pokémon ancestor of all Pokémon. Interestingly, Nintendo (for a time) considered Mewtwo the secondary antagonist of the franchise, behind Giovanni and Meowth. Mewtwo can be considered evil, but more misunderstood because of the way that it was created. Mewtwo later redeemed and helps the main cast.

In the anime, he was voiced by Philip Bartlett, and later Jay Synder (also known by his alias Dan Green). In the Super Smash Bros. franchise, he was voiced by Masachika Ichimura in Melee and the late Keiji Fujiwara in Wii U/3DS and Ultimate. In Detective Pikachu, he was voiced by Chris Smith.

AppearanceEdit

Mewtwo as a clone of Mew so it looks pretty similar to Mew but with some differences. Mewtwo is a tall 6'07 bipedal Pokemon that is mostly gray all around but with a long purple tail, it also has short horns on its head, and a tube that extends from the back of its skull to the top of its spine, bypassing its neck. It also has a defined chest and shoulders, Its tail is thick at the base, but thins before ending in a small bulb.

Mega Mewtwo X is much larger and bulkier than its normal state. The horns on its head are longer and curve upwards more and are more straight than before, its eyes are also now light blue, and it has large, purple growths over its shoulders. Its torso is much smaller than its bulky hands and the rest of its body. Its forearms and thighs each have two raised ridges and its digits are now longer and thinner. The tail is also slightly shorter

In comparison to X, Mega Mewtwo Y is smaller and lighter, it loses its long tail and the tube behind its neck. However, it grows a long, purple part on its head with a curled tip from the back of its head that is similar to its previous form's tail. Its eyes are now red and slightly larger.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Mewtwo is highly skilled with Psychic powers. It can levitate through use of telekinesis, speak telepathically, and can take control of another living being's mind. It has a powerful signature move, Psystrike (psychic wave manipulation), and it is also known for its powerful Shadow Ball and Aura Sphere. Mewtwo is also capable of wielding various types of attacks (but to a lesser extent than Mew). So as to exert its powerful psychic abilities, it will stay motionless for long periods of time in intense concentration to raise its capabilities to their maximum power.

Its also shown to be able to teleport with ease and fast as well. It is shown to just be fast in general mostly in the air. It can also recover near-fatal damage on a whim.
