We at Tipsforallgames feel like Mewtwo has a bad reputation. It was #150 in the original Gen 1 Pokemon roster and was often used as something of a villain but victim throughout the franchise. Still, no matter where it comes from, who its mother is, and what its intentions are - Mewtwo is an immensely strong Pokémon, and it doesn't seem like that will ever change. In this guide, we go beyond its best. basic moves and stats.
