Details

Trophy Description

Classic Mode

"A genetically created Pokémon, Mewtwo is the result of many long years of research by a solitary scientist. Although Mewtwo was born from the genes 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."

Adventure Mode

"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."

All-Star Mode

"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."

Special Appearances

Smash Series

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Outside of Pokemon, Mewtwo has made an appearance as a playable character in Super Smash Bros Melee for the GameCube. Ironically, despite being one of the toughest Pokémon in the series, Mewtwo was deemed low tier due to light weight, poor attack options, and large build.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Mewtwo was dropped in its sequel, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Although he still appears as a trophy in game, it is spiritually succeeded by the fan-popular Lucario. Lucario had a few similar moves to Mewtwo (namely, Aura Sphere being like Shadow Ball, and his recovery move not having damage) with some new additions and is considerably faster.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Mewtwo is available as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for players who purchased both versions. Currently, his release is slated for Spring 2015.

Pokémon HeartGold\SoulSilver

After earning all Kanto badges, the player gains access to Cerulean Cave. Deep within the cave, like in Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen, players are capable of encountering Mewtwo. At Level 70, it sure will make a dent to even the strongest Pokémon team willing to face him off.
