Pokémon (ポケモン, Pokemon?, IPA: [ˈpoʊ.keɪ.mɑn]) is a media franchise owned by video game giant Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri around 1995. Originally released as a pair of interlinkable Game Boy role-playing video games, Pokémon has since become the second most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, falling only behind Nintendo's Mario series. Pokémon properties have since been merchandised into anime, manga, trading cards, toys, books, and other media. The franchise celebrated its tenth anniversary on 27 February 2006, and as of 1 December, 2006, cumulative sold units of the video games (including home console versions, such as the "Pikachu" Nintendo 64) have reached more than 155 million copies.
The name Pokémon is the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand, "Pocket Monsters" (ポケットモンスター, Poketto Monsutā?), as such contractions are very common in Japan. The term "Pokémon", in addition to referring to the Pokémon franchise itself, also collectively refers to the 493 fictional species that have made appearances in Pokémon media as of the recent release of the newest Pokémon role-playing games (RPGs) for the Nintendo DS, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Like the words deer and sheep, "Pokémon" is a collective noun, i.e., the singular and plural forms of the word "Pokémon" do not differ, nor does each individual species name; in short, it is grammatically correct to say both "one Pokémon" and "many Pokémon". Nintendo originally translated Poketto Monsutā literally, but a naming conflict with the Monster in My Pocket toy line caused Nintendo to rebrand the franchise as "Pokémon" in early 1996. The game's catchphrase in the Japanese language versions of the franchise is "ポケモンGETだぜ! (Pokémon Getto Daze! - Let's Get Pokémon!)"; in English language versions of the franchise, it was originally "Gotta catch 'em all!," although it is now no longer officially used except in the sidestory episodes airing under the name Pokémon Chronicles.
In November 2005, 4Kids Entertainment, which had managed the non-game related licensing of Pokémon, announced that it had agreed not to renew the Pokémon representation agreement. Pokémon USA Inc., a subsidiary of Japan's Pokémon Co., now oversees all Pokémon licensing outside of Asia.
Mewtwo (ミュウツー, Myūtsū?) is one of the 493 fictional species of Pokémon creatures from the Japanese Pokémon media franchise, designed by Ken Sugimori. In all aspects of the franchise, Mewtwo, as with all other Pokémon, are used to battle both wild, untamed Pokémon and tamed Pokémon owned by Pokémon trainers.
Mewtwo is widely considered the most powerful pokemon in the world, its name originates from that of another Pokémon, Mew, from whom its genes originate. The "two" suffix refers to Mewtwo being a cloned and enhanced Mew. The name Mewtwo refers to the species as a whole, as well as to individual specimens in the games, anime, manga, trading cards, and other media, but canonically, there is only one Mewtwo in the Pokemon World.
Mewtwo's body is light purple and has an alien-like appearance, also resembling Mew's to some degree.
Mewtwo is described by the in-game Pokédexes of the Pokémon video games as being cloned from Mew having been created by scientists by modifying Mew’s DNA. However, they had created it solely for battling and failed to make it compassionate. It is primarily due to this loophole that most Mewtwo featured in the various Pokémon media are tempestuous and remorseless. A sapient being, Mewtwo is among the few Pokémon species created by humankind. Mewtwo's ears resemble small horns and its body is more humanoid than that of Mew.
Due to its genetic background, Mewtwo’s powers are undeniably invincible. Mewtwo can employ telekinesis to lift people and Pokémon off the ground, or to perform self-levitation, which allows it to achieve genuine flight. All this can be done with only a minor strain on its mind. Mewtwo has the ability to project its thoughts telepathically to others, making it one of the few Pokémon who can directly communicate with any sort of creature. When in battle with another Pokémon, Mewtwo can easily summon a barrier of psychokinetic power to protect its body. It can also erase memories, and has the ability to control both weak minded humans and Pokemon as is demonstrated in the movie.
Even though Mewtwo is the clone of Mew, it does not have the ability to use all Mew's attacks and moves for an unknown reason. It is considered to be far stonger than Mew, yet the first movie shows that they are of equal power.
Mewtwo is featured in the continuity of the anime and movie series. In the anime’s chronology, Mewtwo first appears in a special show on the "Mewtwo Returns" DVD titled The Uncut Story of Mewtwo’s Origin. Mewtwo is shown being created from the Mew's DNA by the scientist Dr. Fuji for Team Rocket. During growth, Mewtwo befriends a young girl named Ai, a clone of Dr. Fuji’s deceased daughter. However, the experiment encounters a tragic anomaly, and Ai disappears, leaving Mewtwo traumatized. Dr. Fuji forcefully administers serum to erase Mewtwo’s memory.
In the anime Episode 13, "Mystery at the Lighthouse" when Ash, Brock, and Misty arrived at a lighthouse and knock on the door, an image of Mewtwo is seen carved on its door, among other legendary Pokémon.
Mewtwo also appears in the main anime storyline three times wearing its armour and helmet but its identity is not revealed. Its first appearance is in a Pokémon battle at the Viridian City Gym between Giovanni and Gary, who gets defeated easily. The second appearance is during a brief scene with Giovanni talking to it. The final appearance is when Mewtwo flees from the Gym during episode 'Showdown at the Poke Corral.
In Pokémon: The First Movie, Mewtwo stirs from its slumber in stasis a while after its memory is erased and it has matured. When it is told that it is a laboratory specimen for the humans who created it, Mewtwo is enraged and destroys the laboratory. It is soon found by Giovanni, who had originally ordered Mewtwo's creation, and succeeds in tricking the Pokémon by telling it that he will help "add value" to Mewtwo's life and make him stronger. Giovanni trains Mewtwo through use of a sort of armor plating in his gym in Viridian City. Upon finding out that Giovanni is using it as nothing more than a tool, it is convinced that humans are immoral. Mewtwo destroys the machinery connected to it and flies away, escaping Giovanni's clutches. It goes to New Island and sets a new goal: a global purge of humans and Pokémon, both of which it believes to be corrupt and weak; the humans in doing whatever they want and their pokémon mindlessly obeying them. Mewtwo's plans are to clone every species of Pokémon to create superior creatures- super clones like itself and wipe the planet clean of all humans and "inferior" Pokémon.
Mewtwo sets in motion its plan to acquire Pokémon for cloning. In order to do this, it sends letters to many trainers including Ash, inviting them to the island to meet "the world's greatest" Pokémon Master. Creating a storm so getting to the island would be more difficult, Mewtwo tests to see who are the worthiest trainers and upon their arrival, it appears before them proclaiming itself to be the world's greatest Pokémon and Pokémon Master. Mewtwo detains the trainers' Pokémon using Thief Balls, a variation of the Pokéball that captures all tamed Pokémon, even those inside their Pokéballs. Mewtwo clones each of them for itself in the lab it created. However, a wild Mew that witnessed the scientists with the fossil appears, and Mewtwo immediately sets the stage for a tremendous battle with it. With that, the ultimate Pokémon battle ensues, and the chaos eventually ends when Ash throws himself into Mewtwo and Mew’s crossfire of Psychic attacks, rendering his body lifeless and stone-like. This shocks Mewtwo, and as all the Pokémon grieve, their tears caress Ash’s body and miraculously revive him. Mewtwo realizes that all living beings have virtue. Then, it erases the memories of all trainers and their Pokémon and teleports them to the places where they received their invitations before taking the Pokémon it cloned along with it on a journey westward, in search of a haven.
In Pokémon: Mewtwo Returns, Giovanni, unaware of the events at New Island, locates Mewtwo hiding in Mt. Quena in the Johto region. He rallies his troops, travels west, and commences his operation to bring Mewtwo out by capturing the clones so that he can force Mewtwo to submit to his will, all of which is wholly successful. As Mewtwo has developed a sense of concern for its clones strong enough for it to put the welfare of its fellow clones over its own, it agrees to be detained by Giovanni’s mind-control machines.
However, chaos involving a swarm of disturbed Bug Pokémon ensues, and Ash and his friends, who just so happen to have been in the area when the operation took place, find Mewtwo incarcerated. Though they and Mewtwo are successful in destroying its energy prison, Mewtwo’s life force is in jeopardy, but Ash and his Pokémon carry Mewtwo to Mt. Quena’s healing spring and hurl it into the water, and Mewtwo’s body and soul are restored. Mewtwo comes to another realization: That if this natural healing water has a healing effect on his artificial body, then being a clone does not mean that one is automatically “impure”. Rejuvenated, Mewtwo emerges before Giovanni and declares that neither it nor the region belong to the Team Rocket leader. Using all its power, Mewtwo psychically moves the lake and the spring beneath the surface of Mt. Quena, and Giovanni and all of his henchmen, except Jessie and James, are moved away from the mountain with their memories erased. Mewtwo sees that Ash, his friends, Jessie, James and also their Pokémon are virtuous and trustworthy enough not to reveal the mountain’s secrets, so it does not erase their memories. After thanking Ash for all his help, Mewtwo departs to reside in solitude.
