Watch Mewtwo Transform Into His New Form In Pokémon X And Pokémon Y

By Ishaan . April 17, 2013 . 3:34pm

A while ago, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company revealed a new Pokémon from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. At the time, it was stated that the new Pokémon looked very similar to Mewtwo, and just as people suspected, it is actually him. Here’s an animated clip of Mewtwo transforming into his new form:



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

  • Rohan Viajar

    Frieza: Did you think this was my final form?

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    No thank you .

    • DCBlackbird

      Alright, you are rational unlike some nostalgic brutes I’ve talked to

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        XD ok.

  • evilkaz

    Oh…I thought it would’ve been cool for that thing to be a new clone of mew or something. But I guess this works. I dot really see a reason they’d have to mess with him.

  • Sam Park

    I wander whats the point of giving an already strong Uber Pokemon a New Form?


      troll the player :P

    • DCBlackbird

      my theory is that this form excels in the fields the original form did not, at the cost of decreasing its already strong fields.

    • Coeurl

      Same as all the other pokemon that got forms, I bet. Also gives GameFreak a way to hype legendaries without giving them evolutions

    • Kalis Konig

      Since the original 151 we have gotten pokemon that can stop time, create life, create worlds, control space, and even a pokemon devil…I think Mewtwo needed a new form at this point canonically speaking to remain the strongest.

    • Krisi92

      Why is that a problem? Having a new form doesn’t mean it’s stronger.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Considering he’s a genetically created pokemon, why wouldn’t he have more than one form? It’s not like there’s a pokemon out there that births mewtwos

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I kind of agree with this

    • Brian

      It makes even more sense when you consider that he looks more like mew in this form bringing him closer to what he was actually suppose to be like

  • 果林

    mewtwo used to be cool then he became mewthree

    • DCBlackbird

      -_- but he can still be mewtwo its a choice not a law

      • 果林

        yeah click that B button if its a evolution

    • ShadowDivz

      Two’s a party.
      Three’s a crowd.

  • CirnoLakes


    Mewtwo shouldn’t have an evolution.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      true but its a forme

    • Nick Potter

      It’s not an evolution. It’s a forme change.

      • CirnoLakes

        Well, sorry for my misunderstanding.

        I’m not used to Pokemon transforming other than Ditto.

        • DCBlackbird

          He won’t be transforming willy nilly, you choose whether he will

          • Tien Ron

            we don’t know if it is an evolution or a form yet, Nintendo hasn’t stated what it is, although i am sad it is mewtwos form/evolution cause that means i wont find it in the grass :(

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Foolish mortal — your trap cards mean nothing to me.

    • Spirit Macardi

      A double-dose of Dan Green references I see x3

  • Spider-Man

    Just like Frieza, he got smaller with the final form change.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      You probably shouldn’t be assuming that’s his final form. They’ve got to turn the final battle into at least 3-4 episodes by itself, you know!

  • KiTA

    So this is MewTwo if he hadn’t been genetically messed with?

    • SpecDotSign

      Wouldn’t that be the evolution of Mew?

  • yoUNg_grOUp568

    i’d hate to say i was right, but i was right

  • YoshEE

    So I am guessing that in X and Y we might need an item for mewtwo to transform of something

  • Raltrios

    I still need to know… WHY?

  • lozffvii

    So, after his last appearance he went away and did some training. Now he’s back with a new form.

    I swear to Buddha that I’ve heard that exact phrase in a million other anime-related places.
    Regardless of Mewtwo’s clear resemblance to Frieza.

  • Ricardo C

    So he went from bad ass looking to… that?

  • Shadowman

    Resolute or Ultimate form.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Come on, Nintendo. You do a press release for every single 3ds game today besides X and Y and you can’t show us one new pokemon?

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Pokemon is a special case. It’s such a huge franchise that it gets its own day for the nerds to fangasm.

  • Tales_of_Master

    Because Mewtwo wasn’t broken enough, am I right ?

    • Krisi92

      Mewtwo was only broken in Gen 1. And what makes you think that this will be stronger? I’m pretty sure that all (or almost all) forms of other Pokémon have the same base stat totals as the originals.

  • Edzo04

    i hate formes >.< i was really hoping that was going to be a new pokemon

    • DCBlackbird

      I really don’t see the issue it’s not tarnishing the original and its still possible to get both

      • Raos

        The only real issue I see is tournament related if the organizers don’t let you use both and it isn’t even that troublesome

        • DCBlackbird

          good reasoning

  • Sardorim

    So… Mewtwo went SSJ3?

  • Derek E Nay

    Oh god… Though I love the design, I was hoping that it was not going to be a new form. I was hoping for a Mew Three or something. It feels weird that the tail turned to hair >.<

  • ZEROthefirst

    Would have made more sense for Giovanni to have made another Mew clone to fight against Mewtwo after the end of I think Mewtwo Returns. Why do that though when you can just have a pre-existing Pokémon transform into Frieza?

    • DCBlackbird

      I thought so too, then you run into the issue of the current fans not knowing of the earlier parts of the continuity.

  • Tsunamori Nanashi

    I don’t even

  • This isn’t even my final form.

  • Go2hell66

    Holy crap someone call DBZ’s lawyers!!

    • Sweet Sui ♥

      The similarities are rather uncanny… even their stances are alike here ^_^”” lol.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Nah it’s more funny this way :D

    • Ridley Scott: “Hey, get in line, poser.”

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Is it Ridley or H.R. Geiger who should be a’suin?

  • Ivan Junior

    GameFreak should leave Mewtwo alone, he’s awesome the way he is and was created. This is a sh*tty form, I tell u guys.

    • DCBlackbird

      They left mewtwo alone his design is absolutely unchanged his double neck is still there and so is his belly tail. This new form is separate just like every other additional form its not forced on you, you have the power to decide if mewtwo sticks 90’s or 10’s. Just wait for the game the new form may work in its context…besides everything has a reason. They didn’t make MewTwo in anticipation of a movie to this day I wonder why they made MewTwo.

      • Ivan Junior

        u have a point there my friend. But I cannot lie to u I’m very sad about this transformation. Let’s wait for the new game and see what happens.

  • Margaret Chan

    My main complaint is that… I really don’t like his design D: It just doesn’t appeal to me AT ALL aesthetically, like most of the recent pokemon (Black/White [2])

    • DCBlackbird

      Alright that’s cool not every pokemon is going to appeal to everyone, like me I never dug golems design. Thing is I feel the more pokemon loses touch with me cosmetically it embraces me tighter with its story which I feel the black and white series has the best of in the pokemon franchise.

      • ShadowDivz

        That’s funny because i HATED BW story.

        • DCBlackbird

          While the first 2 had the kid save the day story, the third had more of a disaster story. the new ones have stories akin to the mother franchise.

          • ShadowDivz

            What? Are you referring to red/blue gold/silver/crystal and emerald/ruby/sapphire? Please elaborate.

          • DCBlackbird

            red-crystal had a child journey storyline, ruby-emerald had a stop the destruction of your homeland story, and diamond-white 2 had stories similar to the cute diabolicalness of earthbound

          • ShadowDivz

            Yeah, those were good. But BW annoyed the hell out of me with the constant preaching of how pokemon and humans are friends and get along. I mean, it’s freakin’ obvious and the entire story revolves around that fact.
            Then you have N never shutting up about how people don’t deserve pokemon and battling is wrong, but he challenges you like 3times. And then when he reads your pokemon’s mind or something PLOT TWIST OF THE CENTURY your pokemon actually enjoy battling with you.
            For the record, my favorite of all time is Ruby.

          • DCBlackbird

            I wasn’t in it for N as much as I was for Ghetsis, he was vile….I like some gen 3 pokemon(that’s when the series started to drift away for me)but honest to god I found those hoenn games ridiculously easy….

          • ShadowDivz

            Hmm, they were around my level, i would say. But still my favorites.
            B/W my least favorite. Also, in hoenn you could make a treehouse! xD

      • If you’re playing pokemon for the story, you’re doing it wrong. Like reeeeeaaaaaaallllllllyyyyyy wrong.

        • DCBlackbird

          Lol I still play to catch pokemon they are the title so it would be weird not to

        • ShadowDivz

          Agreed, but ruby had a good story.

      • Frankie

        Black and White had the worst Pokemon to date and the story was exactly the same as the other ones. Yes, no one is going to like every Pokemon, but the recent ones have been terrible.

      • Rene Islas

        Pokemon has history? O_o!! Dem.. I just catch em all

  • DCBlackbird

    If I had a critique on this design which I do…..Its the hands and feet….they look so useless. I also am not quite agreeing with the choice of eyes…..Maybe if they stuck with the 90’s Mew and MewTwo eyes people would see more of a semblance to their nostalgia icon.

  • Raltrios

    Just saw the full trailer. Mewjinbuufriezathree might not be so bad there, but I still worry what impact it will have on the games…

    • DCBlackbird

      I believe this will only impact the upcoming film.

  • Will Jay

    So I was right, Black/White Kyurem all over again.

  • FFmax

    It’s like Majin Buu and Frieza had a kid.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Considering we are going to get Pokemon X and Y……………. Mewtwo is going to have two form?…………… Super Buu style and Kid Buu style???

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    He should yell “BEAST MODE!!” and then go “Mewtwo Prime. Maximize!” when going back

  • Charmchar

    That transformation was a bit underwhelming.

  • anthony apduhan

    All those in favor of putting him back in the next new Smash Bros. with this new form change say I…
    All against?

  • I know what I saw and watched the whole thing, but I still don’t understand.

  • Visa Vang

    Mewtwo = First generation anime types: Long pretty leg ladies (90s)

    Mew = Second Generation anime types: Babies (Late 90s to early 2Ks)

    What ever Mewtwo’s new name: Current anime generation types: Lolis

    Make sense.

  • mockturtle

    Nononononononono, I don’t like change. Don’t like change at all. If it had been like a Mewthree or something that’s fine, but just because you can give a Pokémon a new forme doesn’t mean you should, especially one as iconic and beloved as Mewtwo. And five full generations after its debut? Really?

    You know, I can’t help but wonder if this was all a ploy to get Mewtwo back in Smash Bros. 4.

    “They took him out for Brawl! How can we secure he makes it for SSB4?”
    “Let’s give him a redesign…?”

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    It actually isn’t the same Mewtwo. The voice actor for this one is a female, as opposed to the original Mewtwo’s male voice actor.

    Either two Mewtwos, or Mewtwo got a sex change.

    • British_Otaku

      So when the voice actor changes for a character/creature, it has to be another character/creature. Could be a placeholder voice or simply a new voice actor for whatever reason. >_>

      Legendary Pokemon tend to be genderless and even with genderless characters there can be arbitrarily assigned voices which sound like one gender more than another or roles which imply a gender… See Amaterasu in Okami.

      In the games, I’ll be listening to Mewtwo’s cry without a care. >_>

  • ギャビン

    I find this grossly offensive. This should have been handled like lugia, latias, & latios. Similarities but no real connection.

    • DCBlackbird

      then don’t choose to transform into it

      • ギャビン

        Yeah I understand that, but I’m pretty sure X & Y is going to be DNA themed and they are going to give you a reason to want to transform it. But it doesn’t change the fact that it is a terrible looking design. If you are going to make a follow up to one of the most beloved characters, it has to be great looking and this thing is not. At least to me it’s not.

        • DCBlackbird

          Alright I sort of see your point(I’m blind to most logic)but perhaps the reason it pales in comparison to the original is as to not try to trump the original

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Come on folks, let’s try and back off the hyperbole just a tad tonight.

  • Krisi92

    Mewtwo transformed into… its new form’s stock Sugimori art?

  • XypherCode

    I like it :))

  • Syn

    Its about time they update Mewtwo, if this Mewjinbuufriezathree form is stronger, am happy, looks just fine to me.

  • NightzeroAX

    I expected Buu and Mewtwo to do the Fusion Dance.

  • James Todd

    now how to change its form in the game is the question

    • DCBlackbird

      Items man…like the three dragons

      • James Todd


  • Jake Boudreau

    People who don’t like this new form *me* need to realize they probably aren’t going to troll us and make him only available in this form

  • I’ll just leave this here:

  • Alexandra Cordes

    Is nothing sacred…?

  • Niermyico

    Why would Mewtwo transforms into that?

    • DCBlackbird

      maybe something similar to why Giratina transforms into a centipede

      • Niermyico

        Even if Giratina transforms into a centipede, it still retains that sort of menacing characteristics that it has. Mewtwo on the other hand turns into a chibi.

  • Nitraion

    Lol i wish this is like this:
    Mew–>This form—>Mew two we know…

    • KingRuff

      But Mew can’t turn into Mewtwo. They are two completely seperate Pokemon.

  • AdachiTohru


  • I don’t see why he would want to turn into this smaller uglier form.

  • Kevin Lor

    His tail is on his head now lol xD

  • CirnoLakes

    Alright. So.

    Whether it it a transformation or an evolution, I think this is a terrible idea.

    Either we have Pokemon evolving that shouldn’t be. Or we are introducing an idea that never really belonged in Pokemon, Pokemon transforming into alternate forms.

    Transforming was fine for Ditto. But this kind of transforming does not belong in Pokemon. The reason I didn’t even think of the possibility this was merely a “transformation” rather than an evolution at first, is because it is such an audaciously not Pokemon idea.

    • Ixbran

      Deoxys is a pokemon with multiple forms; it has a Normal form, Attack form, Speed form and Defense form.

      Moeloetta is a pokemon with multiple forms; an Aria form and Pirouette form.

      Shaymin is a pokemon with multiple forms; a Land form and Sky form.

      This isnt the first time they gave legendary pokemon multiple forms before, its just the first time they have given new forms to one that’s existed for so long. If you thought this was a terrible idea, where were you when they introduced Deoxys? You should have made your complaint then instead of now.

      • DCBlackbird

        THANK YOU!!! this is nothing new! it started when castform came to the scene! Honestly if it was a separate pokemon it would be like latios and latias….who aren’t really that different….

  • KingRuff

    Why does he look less powerful now? Not hating on the new form or anything, but he just looks a lot weaker and less menacing.

    • DCBlackbird

      Maybe he is…….Maybe he’s stronger in areas where the original was weaker

  • Learii

    Is that an anime or Is it pokemon x/y?

    • DCBlackbird

      “Not actual game footage”

  • Kitestwinblades

    Would be pretty awesome if evolution always looked like this.
    What!? Magikarp is evolv- *BOOOM* instant Gyarados!

  • isotrex

    *throws master ball
