The 5 Best Mewtwo Moments in the Pokemon Franchise
Pokemon Red and Blue initially released the US in September 1998, with the Pokemon franchise beginning in Japan just a few years earlier. It seems safe to say these games hold a special place in the hearts of many-a-Pokemon fan, as they may have been the first games they played. Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander are some of the first Pokemon starters they encountered, with the legendary birds, Mew, and Mewtwo being some of the first legendaries.
In these early Pokemon games, it is noted that Mew gives birth to Mewtwo on February 6th, so considering the Japanese release, that means Mewtwo is 24 years old today. Mewtwo would then been experimented on via gene-splicing experiments to augment its power, leading it to eventually destroying the Cinnabar Island mansion and fleeing into the world. This has led to an existential crisis that Mewtwo faces earlier on in its existence in the Pokemon world. As such, and in honor of Mewtwo’s birthday, here are some of the Pokemon’s best moments throughout the franchise.
