[edit] Background

Main Article

Mewtwo, the Genetic Pokémon, is one of the most iconic characters of the Pokémon franchise. Although technically genderless, he is given a male voice and is typically referred to as male. Mewtwo was the result of years of experimentation in gene splicing and DNA engineering on base-cells of the legendary Mew (Although in-game sources state Mew as having actually given birth to Mewtwo). After escaping from, and presumably burning down, the Pokémon Mansion on Cinnabar Island, he makes his home in the cave near Cerulean City, which the Hero of the game may only access after becoming the Elite Four champion. Pokédex entries frequently make note of Mewtwo's "savage" and "vicious" nature.

[edit] Exclusion from Brawl

Mewtwo failed to make it into the final roster, with most fans considering Lucario to be his successor. However, Mewtwo is one of the "Forbidden Seven;" characters whose incomplete data files were found within the game's programming. Mewtwo's data includes a "Congratulations" picture for clearing Classic Mode with him, in addition to sound files that are presumably voice clips. The decision to exclude Mewtwo was likely influenced by the unspoken rule of each game series having no more than four representatives, as well as a generally low fan-approval rating - competitive players considered him to be the worst character in Melee.
