—Description from the Super Smash Blog.

Mewtwo is a veteran fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, first playable in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It was confirmed during Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation.

When unlocked, it is fought at Spear Pillar.

Attributes

Strengths

  • Can Wall Jump.
  • Fast dash speed.
  • Many of its attacks involving dark energy have disjointed hitboxes.
  • Very good air dodge.
  • Jab has little ending lag, being capable of combo'd into grabs and other fast attacks.
  • Down Aerial can Meteor Smash.
  • Great gimping potential, which aided by its recovery makes Mewtwo a very powerful character for attacking offstage.
  • Can make use of many mindgames using Teleport and air dodge. This also makes its recovery versatile and less predictable.
  • Very good recovery with Teleport, backward aerial Shadow Ball, and Confusion.
  • Fully charged Shadow Ball deals a high amount of shield damage.
  • Confusion can throw opponents off-balance, goes through shields and reflects projectiles.
  • Disable can stun opponents for longer periods of time the higher their percentage is.

Weaknesses

  • Quite tall and floaty, being an easy target.
  • Very light weight.
  • Most tilts have considerable ending lag.
  • All its tail based attacks have their sweetspot at the base of its tail near the body, with a sourspot at the tip. This means Mewtwo must be at very close range to its opponents to deal maximum damage and knockback with any tail attack.
  • Shadow Ball lacks hitboxes while charging.
  • Disable requires eye-contact range, meaning it will not hit if opponents are with their backs turned to Mewtwo and it cannot stun opponents in midair.
