Remember several months ago when Mewtwo’s new forme was just new, nameless pokemon from Pokemon X and Y’s generation six line-up? Well — now it appears that said pokemon is getting its own movie (just like every other Legendary in Pokemon films prior)!
Needless to say I’m still quite bitter over Mewtwo just having a new forme instead of the new forme being an entirely individual pokemon. I’d rather the new forme come into being via something along the lines of the elaborate theory I came up with back in April. However, having said that, after watching the trailer, it’s possible the Mewtwo’s new forme coming into being may not be as far off from my initial theory anyway. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still far off — just not as far off.
The trailer below shows off Mewtwo transforming into its new forme when it appears to be in tough situations, or maybe when it just feels like over-killing everything. The trailer itself is unfortunately in Japanese but I think you may pick up some of the plot points by the visuals alone.
From what I’ve interpreted from this trailer (yes it’s theory time!), I think it may be possible that Mewtwo had been recaptured again and was put through various endurance tests to bring out Mewtwo’s inner power and strength. The result may have ended up in Mewtwo being able to transform into its new forme because maybe, prior to the tests, it was unable to access that power.
With its new power, Mewtwo probably escaped from the facility where it was being put through its tests, most likely by blowing it up in the process. It then finds the humans who featured in the trailer, who may want to help it out for some reason – probably to divert it back to Kanto, I think.
Mewtwo gets somehow attached to these humans and, when they get into shenanigans, it has to protect them, and in order to do is it has to transform into its alternative forme. At the end of the film Mewtwo will probably discover more about the value of life and reflects on how it as a being has developed over the course of its life in glorious existential exposition.
Since this trailer is allegedly meant to be a prologue to the Gen-six movie Extremespeed Genesect: Mewtwo’s Awakening, and seeing as there are Gen-five pokemon featured in the trailer, it’s fair to deduce that the film will be set in Gen-five, and Mewtwo will be, for some reason, in the Unova reagion and not the Kalos region (where Gen-six kicks off). Maybe it was captured in Kanto and brought over to the facility in Unova, one of the more developed parts of the pokemon world? Maybe. Nonetheless, the prologue should hopefully explain how Mewtwo’s new forme came to be.
Having said all this, we mustn’t forget that Mewtwo is not a natural pokemon. It was created; it’s man-made. So, could have Mewtwo been programmed to have this alternative as part of its arsenel? It’s possible.
Since it escaped once before in existential defiance of being controlled by a human (Giovanni), it’s possible that Mewtwo went off before it was taught how to tap into it’s inner powers in order to transform into its alternative forme.
Why Mewtwo couldn’t transform in its previous films was probably because of this reason, and since Giovanni (who was possessively using Mewtwo as a weapon) was having too much fun controlling Mewtwo it’s likely that the procedure to make Mewtwo access its inner powers may have been forgotten about, or maybe ignored entirely.
I am very interested in seeing how the official Pokemon lore will explain Mewtwo’s new forme. I looking forward to watching this prologue.
However, it is unknown at this time when/if Extremespeed Genesect: Mewtwo’s Awakening and its Prologue will be receiving an English dub. They will be, however, both available in Japan in July. Those who prefer watching anime in an English dub will just have to wait.
How do you think Mewtwo’s new forme will be explained in the prologue film? Let us know in the comments!
