Mewtwo is a pure psychic type Pokémon and one of the two unlockable playable Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament (The other being Shadow Mewtwo). He can be unlocked by beating the Red League and then beating the series of events that follow, ending in a battle with Shadow Mewtwo. He is one of the only man-made Pokémon in the series. Mewtwo was initially exclusive to the Wii U version, but was added to the arcade version via an event in May 2016.

In Pokkén TournamentEdit

Mewtwo is classified as a standard fighter. It has a somewhat high 600 HP. In High Stance, it slowly recharges its Synergy Gauge. He has a unique gimmick to him, his moves consume his synergy gauge. This can make it quite hard to transition into burst mode as you are constantly using up synergy to protect yourself or damage your enemy.

It is a semiclone of Shadow Mewtwo, sharing roughly half of its moves with it.

With balance updates, Mewtwo has been overwhelmingly nerfed, primarily in the form of making its Pokémon moves more risky. Some of its ranged attacks have also been made more punishable.

The regular version of Mewtwo has some Kazuya Mishima inspired moves, while the Shadow version fights similiar to Algol from the Soul Calibur franchise.
