This new Pokémon isn’t officially confirmed to be Mewtwo, but The Pokémon Company do point out that it bears a striking resemblance to him.


Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be released worldwide this October.

  • Giygas says hi

    • Solomon_Kano

      Male trainer better look like Ness.

      • DurableTomb

        … Theeen he’d look like the comfy shorts kid…

      • Or Ninten. (Actually… Shouldn’t be able to edit it now that Pokémon uses 3D models? Fantasy Life characters are great, for example)

  • AoNoise


    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      It looks like a younger version. So maybe “Mewone”?

      • Rune

        But “Mewone” is Mew

        • Arrei


          • DurableTomb


        • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

          I thought Mew would be more of a Mewzero? Mewone as this first reject then move on to Mewtwo.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething


  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Either a pokemon that’s similar to Mew and Mewtwo (kind of like how they made Mewtwo) or Genesect turned Mewtwo into a loli.
    Pretty cool. Maybe that new upcoming movie will tell us more.

    • puchinri

      Shota, you mean? But yeah, I was thinking Mew and Mewtwo cross.

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        Mewtwo is a guy? Since it has no gender, mine’s a girl :D

        • puchinri

          I assumed it was. Well, I felt it was genderless, but was male identified? I’m going with both now~.That makes this one a ShoLi? LoTa?

      • Keyanf

        The Cinnabar island logs say Mew has a womb.

        • puchinri

          . . .I did not remember that. That is fascinating.

  • Ferrick

    looks like trecko and mewtwo have been busy @[email protected]

  • I’ve heard this is an alternate form, but of course that’s not confirmed.

  • Raltrios

    Oh good lord. Mewtwo better not be able to breed now…
    And if this is another alternate forme sort of thing I may have to strangle myself… he’s already one of the hardest hitters in the franchise.

    Unless, of course, this heralds a bunch of new evos for older mons. In which case I could start getting pumped.

    • DurableTomb

      I’d settle for Jynx and Barrierd getting the Magmortar/Electivire treatment, some connection being made between Luvdisc and Hanahana (?), and a Steel/Bug type evolution for Shuckle. An Explosion type attack that changes based on the user’s type (Poison = Poisonous explosion, Electric = Paralyzing explosion, etc.) wouldn’t hurt either…

      • SirTeffy

        It’s MR. MIME, thank you. Don’t mix the English and Japanese names randomly, people have no idea what you are talking about.

        • DurableTomb

          … You tell that to my level 52 FEMALE pokemon.

  • yoUNg_grOUp568

    they have already confirmed that it’s a new form for mewtwo

    • How about you go to the website and read


      It looks a lot like it, but not quite the same. And it says “New Pokemon” right there.

      • yoUNg_grOUp568

        really? And it just so happen to have mewtwo there? This pokemom is also going to appear in one of the new movies that so happens to have mewtwo in it. It can say new pokemon because we have never seen it before.

        • DurableTomb

          Well, it can’t be a pre-evolution, since Mewtwo is a genetically altered clone of Mew. Given the name of the movie that he/she is to premier in, I’m going to say that this is going to be Mewtwo’s “Awakened Form”. Probably goes through some process that links himself/herself back to natural Pokemon and ends up duking it out with Genesect.

      • Aaronrules380

        They ALWAYS call new forms new pokemon. It still isn’t confirmed, but I’d be very surprised if it was a seperate entity, especially since it’s going to be in the upcoming movie which I believe has Mewtwo’s Awakening as part of the title

        • Okay that’s a possiblity but I kinda want it to be a new Pokemon, another clone of Mew if anything.

      • LinkofCourage

        It isn’t confirmed either way. But the fact that this Pokemon is in the leaked movie poster and Mewtwo isn’t leads to believe they are the same Pokemon.

    • SirTeffy

      One problem – most of the moves it used are NOT normally learned by MewTwo. Reveal trailers usually show off moves the Pokemon learns naturally and/or unique moves – however I saw several elemental moves (including Blizzard) that MewTwo cannot have without TMs.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    It looks silly but I’m not complaining. I welcome any Pokemon news. Shame some people will just complain and say that Game Freak are ruining Pokemon.

    Still, I can’t wait to hear what is the story behind this Pokemon. After all, Mewtwo is a clone from Mew and if this is a newly discovered Pokemon like the description of the video (and website) states then I can’t wait to find out.

  • Xmas Lopez

    I dunno, I kinda like it. Its brainsock is kinda endearing

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Lol If Goku and Ness Sees this they will both shit bricks

  • smash bros U, anyone?

  • It is not a new ‘form’ of Mewtwo, just a Pokémon related to him, somehow.

    Or maybe it is Loli Mewtwo! How cute~

    • My money is that some group of people, somewhere made another clone of Mew and hence this thing.

      • Yup, it is the most probable possibility I think. Wouldn’t be surprised if its name is just Mewthree or something like that, though. l_l

  • SolidusSnake

    Looks like something from a PSA warning about the dangers of drug abuse

  • Kefkiroth

    Looks like he has a Buu head…

    • komiko12

      With a resemblance to Frieza

      • Wiff another being’s DNA like Cell.

        • Otis ChaoticNeutral Small

          Majin Freeza

          • T-X

            Perfect Majin Frieza

      • Renaldi Saputra

        mewtwo itself had had a resemblance with frieza perfect form from the first.. they just make mewtwo more like his origin form, an alien

    • Mewthree has finally been confirmed, THAT DOES IT! I’M GETTING A 3DS!

      • Kurenai

        How I wish all fans thought like you :( instead they opt to hate poor newtwo/mewthree D;

      • KiTA


    • AndyLC

      Fitting, as Mewtwo was based on Frieza

  • FRIEZA!!! Next announcement will be Pikachu going Super Saiyan.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Naw he will just start feeling up Nurse Joy’s butt.

      • I’d be fine either way~

      • French


    • Renaldi Saputra

      no, it’s buu + frieza.. mewtwo itself had been called Frieza since first

      • Frieza had multiple forms man, this is obviously one of them, and it’s not even his final one!

        • Renaldi Saputra

          yea, the perfect form

        • this is second form

  • StarWarudo

    Man oh man I’m still in awe about 3D battles. I can’t believe it’s finally happening.

    • Jonattas F.

      Me too *___*

    • Linhua

      … indeed… now if we can just get that Pokemon MMO for the Wii U…

    • Kai2591

      me too!

    • Absorbing

      Did everyone forget about the console releases, you know, those ones entirely focused on 3D battles?

      • ShadowDivz

        Yeah but that’s just it. ENTIRELY focused on 3D battles.
        They didn’t have the charm of the portable ones.
        And oddly enough, yes people do completely forget about them. xD

        • Absorbing

          But my point, in relation to the comment I replied to is that 3D battles aren’t *finally* happening at all. We’ve had them since 2000, or if you’re from Japan or had imports – 1998, Pokemon became a lot more than the flagship games a long time ago.

          • ShadowDivz

            Well clearly some people disagree.
            But i understand what you are saying.

            FYI i really enjoyed PokemonXD, i mean… you had a little sister! Which was perfect for me since my name is Josh and the sister’s name is Jovi. I dunno why, made me connect more with the characters.

  • I’d be a lot more excited about this if I actually planned on buying
    Pokemon X/Y, but I find it difficult to justify buying one unless I can
    play them multiplayer. However, the dream world abilities completely
    ruined everything about competitive Pokémon, and when you’re like me and
    have no friends, it’s difficult to find people to play with aside from
    competitive players. I hope they plan on making Dream World Pokémon
    untransferable to sixth gen, or at least have a multiplayer option to ban Dream World Pokémon from battles.

    • Suicunesol

      What is the problem with Dream World pokemon?

      • Some of them have the most ridiculous unfair abilities. Politoed with Drizzle? Blaziken with Speed Boost? REALLY? It really lives up to the name Dream World, giving Pokémon abilities that they should only ever have in your dreams.

        Of course, it would be even worse if they allowed Dream World Pokémon in sixth gen, but didn’t give you any way in-game to get them, because then players with fifth gen games would have a huge unfair advantage.

        • Suicunesol

          But that’s not fair because there are only a large handful of Pokemon with really great dream world abilities. You can’t ban them all when not even 3/4 of them are worth banning. Can you imagine the outcry if Pokemon that people tried very hard to obtain and train were suddenly not allowed? And it’s not like you can’t obtain those same Pokemon yourself. You don’t have any dream world Pokemon that you want to keep?

          Not to mention that Blaziken with speed boost is a difficult Pokemon to obtain to my best knowledge.

          • Well for one thing, they would still be usable in fifth gen (and if the optional “dream world ban in multiplayer” clause thing was done, only for people who don’t want to play using them). It’s not like people don’t still play the older games. I still play fourth gen because of Dream World, but I’m just saying that for me to start playing the newer games, it would need to be gone. That’s why I’m kind of sad that I can’t get excited for this new Pokémon.

            Also, you can’t justify something unfair just because it’s difficult to obtain. Imagine if in, for example, some fighting game, there was a character who could kill any other character in one hit, but you had to get 999 consecutive wins in survival to obtain them. That doesn’t make it fair.

  • rainelee

    This is going to be so sweet. October can’t come sooner.

  • Darin124

    I really hope they start revealing some information now! Come on Nintendo ;)

  • suppaguy

    Mew(one), Mewtwo, Mewthree…

  • So he decided to cut off his tail and super glue it to his head… yeah that sounds like a good idead.

  • LinkofCourage

    This isn’t even my final form!

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Mewthree Digivolves tooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Uso Ewin


      • Renaldi Saputra

        no, mewtwo and buu doing jogress evolution

    • Pockystix

      I AM MEWTWO. . . TWO

      • $36598391


  • His moveset looks awesome but there is a bit of lameness in how the enemies react upon being hit.

  • porkiewpyne

    Not a huge fan of the design but DAYUM them battle effects are beast!! :)
    Was hoping for a bit more info though. I feel like we barely know anything about Gen 6 atm.

    • DurableTomb

      Yeah. I can’t wait for an actual big info leak/release and then watch as Smogon’s servers blow up.

  • I’m kind of disappointed that they keep including older Pokémon in these teasers, as if to reassure people that their old favourites will be in. But the best part about Pokémon Black/White was that it was a clean slate—there were no old Pokémon until you completed the games, and that made it feel like everyone was starting over from zero. New world, new monsters, no prior knowledge.

    • Muffum

      I like that about Black/White as well, but I think they want to play it safer here. After all, a lot of people disliked the clean slate approach; it’s the primary reason Black/White 2 included non-Unova Pokemon in the Regional Pokedex.

      • Yeah, I figured the same thing. There’s a lot riding on this game, so they’re trying to spread themselves as wide as they can.

    • Ferrick

      you know what would be even more awesome ? if we could have a battle royale at the end of X & Y’s main story (after elite four) fighting against red, silver, yellow, gold, blue, green, ruby, sapphire, pearl, diamond, and black =P, all of them with their respective regional pokemons

      • That sounds like overkill, hahaha. Personally, I’m hoping for post-game content that’s actually worth doing. Maybe like a new area getting opened up or something.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        That’s nuts! I love the idea

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      True, they should repeat the W/B2 way and start off with a clean slate and add “some” older gen pokemon too.

    • I kinda liked B2W2 better for the fact it kept a good balance between old and new Pokemon.

      • I’ve heard people say that, yeah. But for me, it just took away from the uniqueness of Unova.

        • andref

          I agree with you despite liking the story in B2W2 just a tiny bit more, just because of the new areas and plasma seemed like an even bigger threat.

          But seeing old pokemon in Unova gave me the same weird reaction watching the anime and noticing pikachu’s new static ability came into play….. Just was a bit weird as a long time watcher since season 1

        • hongisfire

          Blame useless unova ranger that can’t stop invasive species

    • Sardorim

      Not every Pokemon game has to be B/W. I’m sure down the line they’ll do the mandatory no old Pokemon til after the game thing again for another Pokemon game.

    • Tien Ron

      i think another new state is kinda outrageous there are way too many Pokemon now in the series to keep going, another 150? i like how this is similar to the gold and silver era when the old Pokemon just got baby or evolved forms.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Oh my god.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s really an ALIEN and based on ALIEN since the first he’s made

  • Ricardo C

    Possible Names: Mew-Three, Mew-One, Mew-Zero
    It doesn’t look like anything you’d expect a newer Mew to look like if it were to surpass Mew-Two but idk anymore

  • YoshEE

    I was hoping they should more pokemon. But got to say if it is new form of mewtwo is bit weird.

  • Suriel Cruz

    Finally… Mewthree!

  • Adam I.

    I’ll be disappointed if it’s shiny equivalent isn’t pink.

    • DurableTomb

      I think it would look better if it were crimson colored with black eyes…

  • MrJechgo

    Eevee gets a new evolution and Mewtwo a new form… if GameFreak heard fans that we want old pokémons to get evolutions, that’ll be nice ^_^

  • Evan Bergan

    Is this the fabled Mewthree we used to spread rumors about and wish for back in the day? :3

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Lets name their love child, Giymewgue

  • “Mewthree” is probably the concept. I don’t think it’ll actually be called that. Probably something catchier like NuMew/MewNu or ReMew.

    • Edzo04

      mewtwo the sequel

  • …….. Mew Mew Power. Srry, that’s the only thing I could come up with lol.

  • Ben Sylvia

    They’re being stingy this gen.

    Lead up to Black/White we had at least 4 more Pokemon without names just sprites for every 3-5 officially revealed.

    This gen in 4 months we only have 7.

    It’s because Japan doesn’t get to torture U.S. for 6 months between releases, I know it it.

    • That guy who hates Spike

      They reveal how Smash Bros. Brawl did it. Dojo style.

  • Reza Faliq

    Majin Buumon

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    …………Mewtwo having a baby? Another failed Mew clone? The possibilities is endless.^_^

    • this must be connected with team rocket’s jessie,
      just look , it even have her hair XP

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Lol that sounds kinda cool lol.^_^

      • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

        I’m sensing Rule 34, oh god ._.

  • Pokahontas McGuigan


  • Rohan Viajar


  • Linhua


    … LOL.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      The battle to become the ULTIMATE Life Form begin.^_^

      • Linhua

        … lol… i’m sorry… I had to say it.

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Haha no prob lol. I just watched DBZ Kai last week and Jojo yesterday so all about Ultimate Life Form and DNA is still on my head lol.^_^

    • Huh… this new Pokemon really has something from Frieza, Cell and Bu together.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      You mean “Mew Games”

      • Linhua

        XD … I was looking for a way to ‘Pokemon’ it up .-. But my brain failed and I just defaulted to the reference directly.

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          Now he needs to create his Mew Juniors

          • Linhua

            … Day Care Center here he comes… lol.

            … he certainly won’t be mating… XD … so who’s he gonna be eating/absorbing…?

            … he’s got REGION-LOADS of candidates~

  • Riian

    Am I the only one who thinks this is unnecessary? It’s like, why do they need to give a Pokemon a new form whenever it’s going to be featured in a movie? It happened with Shaymin, Giratina, Kyurem, Keldeo, etc. Just my opinion

    • Spirit Macardi

      Or maybe they get featured in the movies because they have new formes?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      for them, this is necessary.. to bring up the old pokemon so it becomes popular again

  • Elemiel

    Giygas is invading the Pokeworld, guys.

  • s07195

    Could it be…. Mewthree, an evolution for Mewtwo? Because everyone knows that Mewtwo evolves from Mew, right? (lol)

  • Renaldi Saputra

    mewtwo now = science + frieza + buu
    lulz, not intend to insult, it’s not that I don’t like it..
    but I see ppl in serebii.net facebook page are whinning of it, even saying it looked like digimon maybe for explaining that it’s crap

  • Spirit Macardi

    Having the voice of Dan Green finally caused Mewtwo to evolve!

  • Eric Harris

    Ofcourse it’s Mewthree. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a big dummy.

  • DarthSithZero

    Kinda reminds me Zora Link.

  • Guest

    Majin Mew?

  • FlameEmperor


  • Imma leave this here :3

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Mew that’s right!

  • Solomon_Kano

    A whole other kind of Mewgenics.

  • Shadowman

    Freeza and Mewtwo offspring hybrid.

  • CirnoLakes


    Guess those scientists didn’t learn their lesson.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      They are still working… In Hell!!

      • Solomon_Kano

        That’s where the Frieza influence came from. Must’ve met up with him and Cell down in hell.

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          *Throws up* Oh god! The fanfics! They are increasing!

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Considering how after Team Rocket falls, Team Plasma still continue their pursuit of SCIENCE!!!! with Genesect,………some people just never learn lol.^_^

  • DanijoEX

    *spits soda out* Yeugh… Talk about genetic engineering gone wrong…

  • Go2hell66

    SSJ3 Mewtwo

  • Sam Park

    He reminds me of Giegue even more now, which is odd

  • If it isn’t a mewtwo form, I really don’t know what it could be ‘-‘ but…Emolga and Patirisu aren’t related, even though they are alike… so anything can happen ‘-‘

  • Repede91

    This “form” of Mewtwo showed up in some leaked promotional material for the Genesect movie that will release this summer. So, we may infact learn more about this new Mewtwo before X and Y release.

  • hongisfire

    majin bu?

  • It could be a fusion of Mew and Mewtwo… kind of like how Kyurem could combine with either Reshiram or Zekrom. But yeah smaller=/=pre evo or basic form for all we know this one would be like Dark Lumina from Brave Fencer Musashi.

  • Detrimont

    I’m pretty sure it’s a new form. The subtitle of the film that the form is going to be premiered in is called Mewtwo’s Awakening. leading me to believe the form is called Mewtwo Awakened Form

  • Anesia Hunter

    They made mewtwo breedable, but the baby can’t evolve into mewtwo?

  • Ace

    The only Mew missing is Mew Perfect Cell form.

    • Syn

      They’ve got the Freiza form, now the Buu form, I think youre on point there lol

  • SpecDotSign

    Looks like the final evolution of Mew? Maybe?

  • Jesse Torres

    This is probably an awakened form of mewtwo.

  • Since the next movie is going to circulate around Plasma and Genesect, it makes plenty of sense that they would at least bring up another artificial Pokemon that has that Team Rocket relationship in ratio.

  • ZekeFreek


  • Rayyan K

    This is a completely new pokemon, and has been recently discovered (according to the official Pokemon X and Y site). It says that this pokemon bears a RESEMBLANCE to Mewtwo, not that it is a new forme of it. It might be the evolution of Mew (as it is a real pokemon and not artificially created like Mewtwo) or just a completely new species. All I know is that it looks cool and I can’t wait to catch it.

    • Suicunesol

      I don’t care what the site says. It’s related to Mewtwo somehow. A new forme, a pre-evolution, an evolution, or a family member. I don’t know, but it is definitely not a new, independent species. That just does not happen when two Pokemon look so alike.


    it’s freezer from dragon ball z :P

    • Renaldi Saputra

      mewtwo itself was frieza perfect form from the first

  • Mew, Mewtwo so this one should be Mewthree.

    Another artificial Pokémon?
    Created using Mewtwo’s genes?

    • s07195


  • Justin Demers

    I’m sorry, but I love this! this just makes me even more pumped for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, and even the new movie! :) At first I wasn’t liking this new one, but after watching this Pokemon battle over and over again on the teaser clip, I am now EXTREMELY excited to get this Pokemon. I have 2 different theories on how this Pokemon came to be, 1) Team Rocket (well Giovanni) had Mewtwo’s DNA and Team Rocket created this Pokemon to battle Mewtwo or 2) This Pokemon will the be evolution of Mew! But I am thinking Team Rocket is making a return in the new games, I just have a feeling, I am most likely wrong though! :) But to end this, I have been a proud fan of Pokemon since I was 8 years old, now I am almost 23 years old and I am loving how they keep making Pokemon better and better (I know alot of people will disagree with me) but my favourite generations are Generation I (Kanto Region) and Generation II (Johto Region)! :) LOVE LIVE POKEMON! :)

  • KuchikiSentou

    This was bound to happen.
    Surprised it took this long.

  • echokanon

    I want to think that this is the proper evolution form of Mew

  • Kai2591


    • CirnoLakes

      I own that 3DS, too.

      Good taste, good taste.

      • Kai2591

        *hi five!*

        I bought the pink one because it was the only one available at the time and I couldn’t wait any longer…but it turns out I actually like this colour combo mostly because its mostly white!

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Don’t care about mewthree. Let’s see Froakie evolve!

  • NightzeroAX


  • Freud_Hater

    Calling it now: It’s a pre-Mewtwo form. Wouldn’t even be surprised if they called it Mewto.

    • More like the same situation with Manaphy: You can breed Mewtwo, but his child will be… different.

  • Sergio Briceño

    It’s not that I don’t like the news, I thinks they are cool and I’m hoping that if it indeed another clone then it has a cool backstory. But when I heard that they were preparing an announcement I kinda hoped it included more Pokémon, you know? I know there must be some trailers already in the works because the game has a release date scheduled for this year and that it’s only a matter of time before we get to see some more Pokés, but it’s been a while and they have only shown us previous generation Pokés what seem to be current generation rare or legendary Pokés…

  • gustinex

    The head looks weird, but its still freaking badass.

  • karasuKumo

    Seems that X/Y does relate to DNA rather than dimensions. You never know it could be both.

    I’m not much of a fan of this design, it’s a bit over complicated.

    • LittleMofreaky

      over complicated? He’s just a white thing with a purple tentacle on his head. o_O

    • Suicunesol

      Overcomplicated? Hardly. Maybe the loop over his head, but that’s about it. His design is a very simple version of the original Mewtwo.

  • Space_Ghost

    I am really liking the battle screen changes, but I haven’t played one since Yellow on the GBC, so I’m not familiar with how much it differs from that of Black/White 2. I’ll be hopping back into Pokemon world with one of these 3DS versions, they look solid!

    • ShadowDivz

      Since pokemon yellow?! Are you serious?! O_O

      • Space_Ghost

        Yeah. I don’t really know why either. This one is appealing to me a lot more than the past ones for some reason.

        • ShadowDivz

          The 3D obviously.
          But i can’t believe you didn’t play the hoenn region. Ruby is my favorite.

  • cameron forsyth

    does this mean team rocket is back? or at least geovani’s work in some form?

  • Eric Harris

    So this was the big weekend news? Reveal of mewthree? Meh, ok I guess. Was expecting something bigger, like gameplay elements.

  • Syn

    Its Majin Mew!!!!!!……………. or MewBuu, so cant wait to play this

  • Seink

    this one must be a Mewtwopointfive or even Mewthree…
