Mewtwo is among the 151 Pokémon initially introduced in the First Generation, along with [[Pikachu]], [[Jigglypuff]], [[Charizard]], [[Squirtle]], and [[Ivysaur]] as the final 150th Pokémon catchable in the game, whereas [[Mew]] was only obtainable through special means.

Mewtwo is a fairly anthropomorphic Psychic-type Pokémon with a pale purple body and vaguely feline qualities. Like all Pokémon, Mewtwo's design concepts are illustrated in the Pokémon RPGs via the various Pokédex entries available within the games. However, the scientific power of humans failed to endow it with a compassionate heart. Thus, it has one of the most savage hearts among Pokémon, carrying a disposition vastly different from that of Mew, and thinks only of defeating its foes. Much like [[Bowser]] or [[Ganondorf]], villains who appear alongside Mewtwo in ''[[Melee]]'', Mewtwo is indirectly an antagonistic character hailing from the Pokémon franchise.

Mewtwo is an extremely powerful Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon. As it is a Legendary Pokémon, there is only one Mewtwo in the entire Pokémon universe and has above average stats compared to an average Pokémon. Mewtwo was a failed attempt of cloning the Legendary Pokémon Mew by Team Rocket. Mewtwo destroyed Team Rocket's laboratory on Cinnabar Island and escaped into seclusion. It currently resides in the depths of Cerulean Cave though it does move around the Pokémon world, living in different places every once in a while such as the Unknown Dungeon in the Kalos region as it prefers to live in caves, far from humans. It is one of the few artically created Pokémon along with Castform, Porygon, Porygon2, and Porygon-Z. Due to this, Mewtwo is a genderless Pokémon and is neither male nor female.

It is one of the few artificially created Pokémon along with Castform, Porygon, Porygon2, Porygon-Z, Type: Null, and Silvally. Due to this, Mewtwo is a genderless Pokémon and is neither male nor female.
   
As Mewtwo is a Psychic-type Pokémon, it's attack center mainly around its Psychic abilities such as Psychic, Future Sight, Dream Eater, and it's signature attack, Psystrike which is a unique attack in that it does physical damage to an opponent even though it's a Psychic-type attack which aren't typically physical based attacks. Mewtwo can also learn Shadow Ball (a Ghost-type attack), Flamethrower, Thunderbolt, Energy Ball (a Grass-type attack), Ice Beam and the list goes on (These attacks can only be learned through TMs). This is due to Mewtwo being artificially created, as Team Rocket tried to make it the most powerful Pokémon in the world. Mewtwo also has ESP and has telepathy, allowing it to read the minds of others and allowing it to speak telepathically even though Pokémon can't usually talk. Mewtwo can also perform mind control over its foes (as shown in the first Pokémon movie when it controlled Nurse Joy) and manipulate their mind and feelings. Mewtwo can also Mega Evolve into two different forms: Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y. Mega Mewtwo X gains an additional Fighting-type making it a Psychic and Fighting-type with increased physical stats. Mega Mewtwo Y remains a Psychic-type but is even stronger due to increased special based attack stats, making Mega Mewtwo Y the strongest Pokémon to date.

Even though Mewtwo remains a powerful Pokémon, it does have a few weak points. It is weak to the Ghost-type, Bug-type and Dark-type Pokemon. Dark-types also have another advantage in that they are immune to Psychic-type attacks. Mewtwo is also rather frail in the defensive stats and it can't take hits too well, especially after Mega Evolving, into its Mega Y form. As it is a Legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo can't evolve into or from any other Pokémon besides being able to Mega Evolve.

Mewtwo made its ''Smash''-series debut as an unlockable character in ''Melee''; it is interesting to note that it could have appeared in the previous game in some form but didn't. It is much more difficult to unlock than most other secret characters in ''Melee'', however; it can be unlocked after either playing 20 straight hours of Vs. Mode matches (5 hours for four players), or playing 700 Vs. mode matches.

Since ''Brawl's'' [[Lucario]] shares some properties with [[Super Smash Bros. Melee|''Melee'']]'s [[Mewtwo (SSBM)|Mewtwo]], it was originally believed that Lucario indeed replaced Mewtwo, much like it was thought that [[Ike (SSBB)|Ike]] had replaced [[Roy (SSBM)|Roy]]. However, there is no evidence that Lucario was intended to "replace" or exist as a [[clone]] of Mewtwo in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl''. Instead, by intensive hacking, it was confirmed that Mewtwo was intended to return, but was scrapped due to time constraints.

Despite not being a [[clone]] at all like the other cut characters, Mewtwo did not return in ''Brawl'' as a playable character, making it the only cut character that is not a clone. This resulted in a significant amount of fan outcry, despite Mewtwo's lack of popularity as a playable character in ''Melee'', as the majority of players saw it as an unjustified cut. However, by intensive hacking, it was confirmed that Mewtwo was intended to return, but was scrapped due to time constraints.

Mewtwo has been confirmed to be a playable fighter. People who own both Super Smash Bros. For 3DS and For Wii U will be able to get codes to download Mewtwo on 3/31/15 if they register both games with Club Nintendo by then. It is unknown when people who own only one version of the game will be able to obtain Mewtwo.

Mewtwo once again did not return as a playable character in the initial version of ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U''. However, when [[Greninja]] was being revealed, almost everyone thought that Greninja was Mewtwo. This was most likely due to them both having three fingers. Also, while charging the Water Shuriken, Greninja lacked webbing in between its fingers and its torso looked identical to Mewtwo's. This made everyone think that [[Sakurai]] purposely made Greninja seem like Mewtwo to trick his audience. This soon turned into a meme. However, during the ''Super Smash Bros. for Wii U'' 50-Fact Extravaganza on October 23rd, 2014, Mewtwo was confirmed to return as a playable fighter, becoming the first [[Downloadable content|downloadable fighter]] in the ''Smash Bros.'' series. Consumers who registered both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game on Club Nintendo before March 31, 2015 could get it for free as of April 15, 2015, while other players were able to purchase it starting from April 28, 2015.

* Mewtwo, [[Dr. Mario]] and [[Roy]] are the only characters to skip a ''Smash Bros.'' installment, being cut from ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'' and returning in ''[[Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U]]''.
**Likewise, in ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', hacking reveals that Mewtwo was also planned to be a playable character but was scrapped late in development due to programming issues and resources being focused on the Subspace Emissary story mode.

*Mewtwo is the only playable legendary Pokémon in the ''Super Smash Bros.'' series. As such, it is also the only playable Pokémon without evolutionary relatives.
***Out of all the scrapped fighters in ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', Mewtwo contains the most data out of any other character, with a working character model and voice recordings.
+
*Mewtwo is one of the two known playable Pokémon to be based on the known anime incarnations, the other being [[Lucario]].
* He is the first [[Downloadable character]] in the history of the series (in [[Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U]]).
+
**As of ''[[Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS]]'', Mewtwo is the only playable Pokémon to have two different anime incarnations to appear in this game series: The first being from original series, and another is from ''Black and White'' movie ''Genesect and the Legend Awakened''.
*Mewtwo, along with [[Roy]], [[Dr. Mario]], [[Pichu]], and [[Young Link]], did not return in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl''.

**Despite having an English voice set, most of Mewtwo’s voice are mostly grunts, unlike in Japanese version.
**Out of the playable characters that didn't return in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', Mewtwo was the only character who was not a [[clone]] of another character.
+
*It is a common theory amongst fans that Lucario replaced Mewtwo. This theory is hinted with the fact that Lucario shares two of the exact same moves as Mewtwo, his forward Smash and neutral Special Attack. This was proven false, as Mewtwo will be in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U as DLC if you purchase both versions.

For fighter info, see Mewtwo (SSBM), Mewtwo (SSBWU/3DS), and Mewtwo (SSBU).

Mewtwo (ミュウツー Myūtsū?) is a fictional creature from the phenomenally popular and expansive Pokémon media franchise. It was introduced as the "final Pokémon" in the very first set of games in the franchise. It was included in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a playable character, in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as a downloadable character, and in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an unlockable character.

Character DescriptionEdit

Mewtwo is among the 151 Pokémon initially introduced in the First Generation, along with Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Charizard, Squirtle, and Ivysaur as the final 150th Pokémon catchable in the game, whereas Mew was only obtainable through special means.

Mewtwo is a fairly anthropomorphic Psychic-type Pokémon with a pale purple body and vaguely feline qualities, having been cloned from Mew. Like all Pokémon, Mewtwo's design concepts are illustrated in the Pokémon RPGs via the various Pokédex entries available within the games. However, the scientific power of humans failed to endow it with a compassionate heart. Thus, it has one of the most savage hearts among Pokémon, carrying a disposition vastly different from that of Mew, and thinks only of defeating its foes. Much like Bowser or Ganondorf, villains who appear alongside Mewtwo in Melee, Mewtwo is indirectly an antagonistic character hailing from the Pokémon franchise.

Powers & Abilities Edit

Mewtwo is an extremely powerful Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon. As it is a Legendary Pokémon, there is only one Mewtwo in the entire Pokémon universe and has above average stats compared to an average Pokémon. Mewtwo was a failed attempt of cloning the Legendary Pokémon Mew by Team Rocket. Mewtwo destroyed Team Rocket's laboratory on Cinnabar Island and escaped into seclusion. It currently resides in the depths of Cerulean Cave though it does move around the Pokémon world, living in different places every once in a while such as the Unknown Dungeon in the Kalos region as it prefers to live in caves, far from humans. It is one of the few artificially created Pokémon along with Castform, Porygon, Porygon2, Porygon-Z, Type: Null, and Silvally. Due to this, Mewtwo is a genderless Pokémon and is neither male nor female.

As Mewtwo is a Psychic-type Pokémon, it's attack centre mainly around its Psychic abilities such as Psychic, Future Sight, Dream Eater, and it's signature attack, Psystrike which is a unique attack in that it does physical damage to an opponent even though it's a Psychic-type attack which aren't typically physical based attacks. Mewtwo can also learn Shadow Ball (a Ghost-type attack), Flamethrower, Thunderbolt, Energy Ball (a Grass-type attack), Ice Beam and the list goes on (These attacks can only be learned through TMs). This is due to Mewtwo being artificially created, as Team Rocket tried to make it the most powerful Pokémon in the world. Mewtwo also has ESP and has telepathy, allowing it to read the minds of others and allowing it to speak telepathically even though Pokémon can't usually talk. Mewtwo can also perform mind control over its foes (as shown in the first Pokémon movie when it controlled Nurse Joy) and manipulate their mind and feelings. Mewtwo can also Mega Evolve into two different forms: Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y. Mega Mewtwo X gains an additional Fighting-type making it a Psychic and Fighting-type with increased physical stats. Mega Mewtwo Y remains a Psychic-type but is even stronger due to increased special based attack stats, making Mega Mewtwo Y the strongest Pokémon to date.

Even though Mewtwo remains a powerful Pokémon, it does have a few weak points. It is weak to the Ghost-type, Bug-type and Dark-type Pokemon. Dark-types also have another advantage in that they are immune to Psychic-type attacks. Mewtwo is also rather frail in the defensive stats and it can't take hits too well, especially after Mega Evolving, into its Mega Y form. As it is a Legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo can't evolve into or from any other Pokémon besides being able to Mega Evolve.

In Super Smash Bros.Edit

Mewtwo was planned to be a playable character in the original Super Smash Bros., but it is unknown why he was eventually cut.[1]

Main article: Mewtwo (SSBM)

Mewtwo made its Smash-series debut as an unlockable character in Melee. It is much more difficult to unlock than most other secret characters in Melee, however; it can be unlocked after either playing 20 straight hours of Vs. Mode matches (5 hours for four players), or playing 700 Vs. mode matches.

An easy way to unlock Mewtwo is to leave a versus match overnight. Upon return, just finish the match, and the Mewtwo challenge will begin. Defeat the challenge to unlock Mewtwo.

Despite being renowned for its power and battle prowess in the Pokémon Series, Mewtwo is often criticized by players because of his gameplay problems and negative build qualities (though since dedicated Mewtwo players have found new ways to use it, the criticism has softened in recent years), and it has a low rank in the current Melee tier list as a result, finding itself in 21st place.

In the Pokémon RPGs, from Pokémon Gold and Silver onward, every Pokémon species has a 1/8192 chance of being alternatively-coloured, and such individuals are called "Shiny Pokémon" by fans. The shiny Mewtwo's coloration is green instead of purplish pink, and this is one of Mewtwo's alternate costumes in the game.

TrophiesEdit

Mewtwo, as a playable character, has three trophies - a main trophy acquired by clearing the Classic mode with Mewtwo on any difficulty, and the two Smash trophies are by clearing the Adventure and All-Star modes, respectively.

Mewtwo
A genetically created Pokémon, Mewtwo is the result of many long years of research by a solitary scientist. Although Mewtwo was bio-engineered from a fossil of the legendary Pokémon Mew, its size and character are far different than its ancestor. Its battle abilities have been radically heightened, making it ruthless.

Mewtwo [Smash]
As Mewtwo relies mostly on its powerful brain, there are times when it scarcely uses its arms and legs. Since Mewtwo spends much of its time floating, it flies far when struck. Shadow Ball traces a jagged path once released: the longer Mewtwo holds it, the more powerful it becomes. Mewtwo uses Confusion to spin its foes around.
Mewtwo [Smash]
Mewtwo is definitely not a speedy character, but its ESP-powered grab and throw moves are comparatively strong. Teleport has a short range, but doesn't leave it open to attack. It's best used as an escape move during disturbances. Mewtwo can daze a foe if it makes eye contact and uses Disable; the move is useless unless Mewtwo is facing its enemy.

In Super Smash Bros. BrawlEdit

As a CharacterEdit

Despite not being a clone at all like the other cut characters, Mewtwo did not return in Brawl as a playable character, making it the only cut character that is not a clone. This resulted in a significant amount of fan outcry, despite Mewtwo's lack of popularity as a playable character in Melee, as the majority of players saw it as an unjustified cut. However, by intensive hacking, it was confirmed that Mewtwo was intended to return, but was scrapped due to time constraints.

Trophy InfoEdit

Mewtwo appears in Brawl as a collectible trophy. This trophy can be obtained by completing All-Star mode on Intense difficulty. The trophy describes Mewtwo's appearance in the Pokémon games, and makes no reference whatsoever to its appearance in Melee:

Mewtwo
A Genetic Pokémon. This legendary Pokémon was based on a recombination of Mew's DNA, created by a scientist after years of research. However, Mewtwo greatly differs from Mew in both size and personality and it is said to have the most twisted and savage heart among all Pokemon. Mewtwo has incredibly high combat abilities and uses Psychic- type attacks.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii UEdit

Mewtwo - Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Mewtwo once again did not return as a playable character in the initial version of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. However, when Greninja was being revealed, almost everyone thought that Greninja was Mewtwo. This was most likely due to them both having three fingers. Also, while charging the Water Shuriken, Greninja lacked webbing in between its fingers and its torso looked identical to Mewtwo's. This made everyone think that Sakurai purposely made Greninja seem like Mewtwo to trick his audience. This soon turned into a meme. However, during the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U 50-Fact Extravaganza on October 23rd, 2014, Mewtwo was confirmed to return as a playable fighter, becoming the first downloadable fighter in the Smash Bros. series. Consumers who registered both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game on Club Nintendo before March 31, 2015 could get it for free as of April 15, 2015, while other players were able to purchase it starting from April 28, 2015. Gameplay-wise, its moveset remains mostly unchanged from Melee, aside from the addition of a Final Smash.

TrophiesEdit

Mewtwo
Created from modified Mew DNA, Mewtwo was designed to be the ultimate Pokémon. It didn't take on any of Mew's kinder traits and only uses its intelligence to destroy its enemies. Or...so it seems. Perhaps it just feels frightened or even tormented, and that's why it lashes out. Whatever the reason, Mewtwo is not to be messed with.

Mewtwo
Mewtwo puts its psychic powers to great use in this game. Not only does it have floaty jumps, but its telekinesis gives its attacks extra reach and its throws added power. However, its light body makes it easy to launch, so if you're willing to risk getting in close, it might just be worth it!

Mewtwo (Alt.)
Mewtwo's Confusion side special not only repels projectiles—it also reflects the damage back on your opponent. Its down special, Disable, stuns an enemy for longer the higher its damage is. Disable only works on foes that are facing Mewtwo.

Mega Mewtwo X & Y
It's almost no surprise that a Pokémon as powerful as Mewtwo wouldn't be limited to a single Mega Evolution. Mega Mewtwo X has strong arms and legs, while Mega Mewtwo Y has a whiplike, slender head. The differences aren't just physical - X brings improved fighting power, while Y can unleash even more psychic power.
