    Jeez... They're making Mewtwo BETTER??

    Kinda excited, don't know yet how I feel about the design overall and not making judgments till I see its whole body. I hope they reveal more than just this on Saturday, though.

    EDIT: ...maybe it'll be Light ty - *BANG* kills self

    The new mewtwo form looks lagging in design.
    I wonder what stat distribution it will have.

    It's apparently a thing they do every year for that year's movie. Serebii says it matches up with the past 7 years of formatting.

    Honestly it makes me cringe for some reason.
    It's such a horrible design.

    It would be 100% better if they did not put his tail on his head
    Why would they do that
    Who thought that looked good from any aspect

    Oh god let this be fake. I've enjoyed all five generations' pokemon (some more some less) but messing with the classics just feels wrong man. And if anything, Mewtwo doesn't need to look more Dragonball-ish. Although it being a brand new Mew clone wouldn't hurt.

    But seriously guys, do you think this is just going to be Resolute forme all over again or something similar to Black/White Kyurem where he fuses with Mew or something?

    Deoxys having multiple forms was a cool concept that fit the Pokemon and was actually an exciting difference between R/S/Fr/Lg/E.

    Why did they ever decide to make more? I find it retarded to this day.

    Originality is SO 1998, form changes are the new bread and butter ;)

    My main issue with the design is that Mewtwo for a large part has the same silhouette as Mew, neck tube aside that is what was always really cool. Mewtwo has an iconic design aspect about him so it's really scary to see scalp rings and head tails. There better be a really good alternate stat spread if this is the real deal.

    Fake or not, it gives us some nice speculation material nonetheless. Let's face it, if it hadn't been for Mr. XY and his likes, this thread would have been locked twice already.

    I also wonder where they want to go with this, if legit. An alternate forme of Mewtwo should, by the rules of decent design, have something Mewtwo doesn't. There should be something distinguishing it from its regular counterpart. Thing is: What doesn't Mewtwo have? All its stats, with the possible exception of its defenses, would be godly on their own in the lower tiers. It has a titanic movepool. Its abilities are so-so, but any boost to them would have to be counterbalanced by a giant stat nerf to avoid complete brokenness. Mewtwo is already dealt most of the good cards in Pokémon, and remains among the very best 'mons in the game almost twenty years after its debut.

    They could swap around its physical and special stats, but the change would hardly be that notable for any purposes but competitive battling. It hits like a truck anyway, and its physical and special defense are the same. It doesn't specialize much in anything, at least not to the extent that one aspect is downplayed at the expense of something else. It's hard to find something that could be swapped around to create a "counterpart" to Mewtwo. It would have to work on a completely different (and unrelated) basis, in which case I question the need to make it a forme at all and not just a new Pokémon altogether.
    You could argue that Mewtwo seems to be offensively inclined, so the new Forme should be defensive, but that sounds an awful lot like Deoxys all over again, just with a slightly more balanced stat spread.

    Perhaps the change is purely cosmetic? If so, this one doesn't have much going for it, urging you to select it over the badass-looking original forme.

    I think it will be interesting to see how GameFreak - or whoever made it up - has been thinking about this. Either way, I'm pretty sure that it will kick ass.

    To me it screams "younger" Mewtwo. So maybe its some kind of weaker forme? That seems kind of an odd move though.. Who knows, I'm excited to find out though

    I doubt that that is real. If you look, it has the JAP BWB2W2 tags on the bottom. I doubt they'd release an alternate form event Pokemon just a few weeks after announcing Gen VI, especially one that screws with a classic. If it was a new Gen VI form, they would probably have the JAP XY tags at the bottom.

    If it is real, though... Meh. The new little... What's it called... "Thing" over the head extending out looks coolish, but the "tail" thing coming out of the bottom ruins the sprite, if you know what I mean.

    There are only a few which I really like and which are also not unnecessary, examples are Deoxys and Rotom. New forms for "old" Pokemon started to grow old for me since Platinum. Skymin doesn't even look like Shaymin imo and the transformation method is even weirder. Give it a flower (it already has one?) and it changes into some flying reindeer of whatever it is. But of course Platinum "only" introduced two new forms iirc so I couldn't complain. But with BW(2), we got seven new forms (not including Basculin and Sawsbuck). Way too much and the Therians didn't even need it. I'm also a bit afraid that Gamefreak will continue with fusions like Kyurem-B and -W. That's literally the only thing I don't want in the games, being able to fuse random pokemon together, so hopefully that doesn't happen in the future.

    /rant. :(

    If I were to guess, concerning the BW/2 tags underneath, they'll pull a "Shiny Legendary Beasts" on us and give us a Mewtwo for BW/2 (Mewtwo giveaway is already confirmed) which will change Forme upon transfer to XY. The alternate forme Mewtwo would then be distributed again some time later in Gen. VI.

    Looking where the legs are supposed to kind be, there appear to be two things much like his head "spoiler". With those angles, they also look very not... biological. Those angles look in a way like Mewtwo ate one of the Genesect on the loose and pulled a Kirby. Since they're spoilers, as well as the now more streamlined head+tail thing, if the stats do change it looks like Speed will be amplified. However, in the trailer video, Mewtwo did outspeed E-Speed Genesect as it was charging Ash almost with time to spare, so that my not be true at all... XD

    I should be studying for the test I have in an hour... but... no.

    Ok guys party is over, we had some fun, let's now wait till sunday's smash.

    Btw if you are not yet convinced, look at the fake new poster at Mewthree Mewtwo's supposed new form at the chest and compare the outline with Charizard.
