    also, with this reveal i was thinking... to anyone who cares, do you think mewtwo will return to fight in ssb4? with this reveal, the probability is jacked up; of course they'll want to promote generation six, and what better way to do it then to not only make this gen's zoroark as a playable character, BUT also bring back an old favourite? it could switch forms similarly to how sheik does, or perhaps like samus does. each could have their own capabilities depending on their stats in-game as well.


    assuming that this is a mewtwo form and not mewthree; while i think the latter, it's possible that it could work out somehow...

    edit: if it is mewthree they can make it more like ice climbers but ew ice climbers :C

    Mewtwo with Newtwo as a final smash? (Assuming the next installment carries over that mechanic)

    I like the idea of Mewtwo being an integral part of the story... X and Y? Double Helix symbol? The genetic Pokemon? Yeeessss..... if Mewtwo turns out to be a main part of the games, I will pre-order than RIGHT NOW.

    Since this Mewtwo is supossed to fight a Extremespeed Genesect, I think that it would be oriented on Speed. I just hope that they just don't swap his spA and spe stats, since 447 spe isn't even enough to outspeed scarf Dialga.

    I feel super confident that this month will be all about Definitely-Not-Mewtwo
    No new Pokemon
    No silhouettes
    No types for known Pokemon
    No boxarts

    Nothing
    All DNM All The Time. Meaning basically the name, revised weight/height, and probably ???????'d out junk for the ability

    I'm going to play devil's advocate and say I like Mewhatever more than Mewtwo. Now, if this thing turns to be part light type, it will be the ultimate troll for genwunners.

    Just trying to help. ;)

    Anyway, on-topic:
    I'd have to say that high Speed is likely the way this forme is supposed to go, given, you know, ESpeed Genesect. A defensive Mewtwo, however, would also be rather interesting...
    And, if they're making a movie after him, I expect a return to SSBUniverse, at least as a huge plot point in their equivelant of Subspace Emissary. I always liked Mewtwo in Melee (though he kinda sucked tbh), and a return to this new one would be neat.

    Regarding SSB I think that Mewthree will definitely be in the game. It is promoting gen VI and it's an old favorite. I think the likeliest possibility for typing is Flying type, to explain Hurricane's addition. Also, imo base stats will be as follows, or near it:
    110 HP / 90 Atk / 95 def / 140 spA / 95 SpD / 145 Spe
    The BST of this is about the same as Mewtwo's, and seems inline with the design. Imo this is near what it will be.

    Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't get even its name.

    I'm not sure where they're going with this one, but I do like the look of it.

    I thought that if they were going to have another addition to the Mew-line, they'd add make it a physical attacker but, looking at the video, that seems unlikely, considering all the attacks were special.

    I'm guessing that it will be a pure Psychic type, and given the movie context, there will a focus on its speed.

    So my guess is a swap between Mewtwo's Sp. Atk and Speed with everything else the same, although that seems kinda boring and uncreative -- and pretty much pointless.

    -sigh- I hope I'm wrong.

    EDIT: Fingers crossed for a Mewtwo/Mewthree return to SSB too

    A lot of people like this guy, actual… wait, misread. More than mewtwo? For me, I think I like the design better but mewtwo has nostalgia, so… yeah…

    Also
    If you guys haven't noticed (HA) we've not been seeing many typings, so what if…

    Fennekin, Chepsin, and Froakie's typings were all just lies, and they're taking out typing all together! GENIUS!

    hurricane is also a figure of speech, is it not? "he moves like a hurricane!" maybe that could be the justification - high speed?

    that said, flying typing is not completely out of the question...

    There won't be a light type. Dark type refers to being nocturnal and underhanded, what would a Light type be? Also how would it fit into the preexisting type balance with no obviously overpowered or underpowered types running around?

    I don't understand why people think Wish Form Mewtwo could be a Flying type. If he moves like a hurricane(he rushes in and leaves behind a trail of turmoil? Arceus better watch out) and can use powerful Flying techniques, doesn't that say to you that he's such a powerful psychic, he can distort air on a whim at the same level of ease it takes to create psychic energy for a more natural technique(something that he would get STAB for using)?

    I think Light types would be like a gaggle of prima donnas. The kind of stuff that a Dark type would wanna Beat Up (budum bum)

    Some would argue Dragon and Steel types are overpowered. I don't necessarily agree with them, but I understand where they're coming from.

    As for underpowered types, I think Grass and Fire would fall under that category.

    Eh, grass and fire have Sun to play with. Poison, Ice, and non-Steel bugs really get the shaft.

    Fire ? Underpowered type ? lol

    Underpowered type = Grass, Poison. Ice attack is a great but Ice type is the worst type ever.

    Imagine this forme actually stronger than the original forme? I wouldn't be surprised if they do that...

    Rock is worse defensively than Ice.

    Rock is weak to: Fighting, Ground, Steel, Water and Grass
    Ice is weak to: Fighting, Rock, Steel and Fire
    Grass is weak to: Flying, Poison, Bug, Fire and Ice

    Yep! Rock and Grass are the worst types defensively when it comes to the type chart.

    However, Ice only resists itself, while Rock resists Normal, Flying, Poison and Fire (which is at least a little useful) and gets more SpDef in sandstorm and Grass resists Electric, Grass, Water and Ground (which is actually very good).

    Not sure if this has been mentioned already, but apparently Serebii stated in his forum that Newtwo was originally referred as Eclair forme in the original leak. He specified Eclair as in lighting or flash, not the food.

    I wake up to find out the only thing that was announced was this thing
    Show Hide

    While I find it pretty cool I wish they announced something else to :(. I guess we'll have to wait and see if CoroCoro reveals anything.

    I share the worries of many others that CoroCoro will tell us absolutely nothing more than what the video revealed. "Look at this Pokémon! It looks a lot like Mewtwo! What can it be?". If we're lucky, we get its height and weight.

    However, there's always the trailer on the 18th to look forward to. Serebii says, and it's fairly reasonable to assume, that we'll get to know more then.

    To be honest, I don't want to know lots of things. Maybe the starters evolutions types, and the two legendary types. I'm more interested on new concepts and the story (no more 8 gyms / Elite 4 / evil team, something more original etc). God knows that BW (and a bit BW2) was my favourite generation thanks to the GREAT storyline

    Maybe they go all Black/White Kyurem on us with this. What if this new Mewtwo form is as a result of fusing Mew and Mewtwo? It wouldn't be too farfetched considered Mewtwo is a "clone" of Mew. Fusing both to make a Pokemon of greater power would be interesting.

    Type: Psychic
    Ability: Pressure (from Mewtwo), Synchronise (Mew), or some brand new XY ability (Much more likely). If it has an ability, it might nulify the opponent's priority of something to tie into the movie. An example could be one ability which makes all moves, or even just the ones with +1 or higher priority, become +0 priority while Mewtwo is out. It would be like Air Lock in that you can still use Bullet Punch/Extremespeed/Sucker Punch/Pursuit when Mewtwo switches out/etc but they won't grant you priority at all.

    Logically, it's BST will probably be one of the following:
    HP - 106
    Attack - 110
    Defence - 90
    Special Attack - 154
    Special Defence - 90
    Speed - 130
    Total: 680
    This would be the exact same BST as Mewtwo's regular form. The form likely granting Mewtwo a new ability which makes it far superior to its regular form (such as the priority nulifying ability) and/or another new move which will probably have about 90-150 base power (Psychic version of Spacial Rend? Psychic version of Draco Meteor? Psychic version of Extremespeed as a special based move?).

    OR

    HP - 106
    Attack - 110
    Defence - 90
    Special Attack - 130
    Special Defence - 90
    Speed - 154
    Total: 680
    Speedy Mewtwo is speedy. Makes sense that in order to fight the Extremespeed Genesect that it would have hightened speed in this form at the cost of some power...and 130 base SpAtk is still great, being higher than a massive majority of non-Uber Pokemon.
