[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.

[edit] Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U

In a special Nintendo Direct held for Super Smash Bros. Wii U on October 23rd 2014, it was revealed that Mewtwo would become a playable character for both games. He becomes the second character to be playable once again after being absent from a previous game, the first being Dr. Mario. Those who register both games have the opportunity to download him as free downloadable content, with codes being sent out for redemption on April 15, 2015. He will also become available for purchase on April 28, 2015, for $3.99 for one game, or $4.99 for both.
