MewTwo is a semi-feline humanoid creation in the Pokémon universe. It is one of the most famous legendary Pokémon and it is the subject of the very first Pokémon movie, in which it is given the nature of a male character and Mewtwo is later given a special movie that continues its story.

Mewtwo is one of the first Pokémon created by science. The origin of his creation is through the villanious Giovanni who had hired scientists that dreamt of creating the strongest Pokémon ever, doing this by taking the DNA of Mew who supposedly has a touch of the DNA of all other Pokémon.
Ultimately, MewTwo is a living replica of Mew, merely modified.

Mewtwo is very aggressive and thinks of nothing but battling and defeating its foes. Its viciousness results from the repeated recombining of its DNA and the loss of its friend Amber. During the anime special Mewtwo Returns, however, Mewtwo seems to have developed a very protective and guardian-like nature to the point of surrendering to Giovanni just to keep its fellow clones safe.


Mewtwo is a creature with a humanoid posture, but has many feline features. Mewtwo's body is grayish-purple with a purple underside and a long, purple tail. Mewtwo has three digits on each appendage. It has purple eyes and two short ears.
One of Mewtwo's most notable features is the tube extending from the back of its skull to its spine. It is most likely a secondary spinal cord, or a system of nerves, allowing for an increased amount of blood and sensory transmission to the brain, heightening its psychic powers.

Power overview


Mewtwo is highly skilled with Psychic powers. It can fly incredible speeds through use of telekinesis, speak telepathically and take control of another living being's mind. Mewtwo is also capable of wielding a large variety of attacks (but to a slightly lesser extent than the original Mew).
In the Pokémon Special manga, Mewtwo fights with a highly skilled combination of Psywaves and a giant spoon for long range and close range battles, respectively.

Mewtwo also has the ability to telekinetically create massive hurricanes powerful enough to destroy the planet.
In addition, he has proven able to translocate massive objects and even an entire island, as well as proved potent enough to reach objects miles apart from himself and lift them with the usage of telekinesis.

Rumored origin

According to the scientific logs found in the Pokémon Mansion of Cinnabar Island, Mewtwo was born of a pregnant Mew whose embryo had been tampered with and its DNA had been repetitively spliced. It was held and studied in the mansion where the scientists, including Blaine and Dr. Fuji (now known as Mr. Fuji), performed horrific gene-splicing experiments that made it vicious and extremely powerful. It eventually broke free of the Mansion (destroying it in the process) and fled to the Unknown Dungeon. There, the player may capture it after beating the Elite Four. Cerulean Cave collapses three years later, and it leaves the mysterious Berserk Gene in a lake near the collapsed Cerulean Cave (implying that the encounter did happen).
