Watch the trailer of Mewtwo below.
Who is Mewtwo?
As per Pokemon lore, Mewtwo is a Psychic-type Pokemon. It was introduced in the franchise’s Generation I. Mewtwo’s identity is synonymous to Mew, another Mythical Pokemon. Notably, unlike most Pokemon, Mewtwo is actually a scientifically manufactured creature. Its origins stem from traumatic gene experiments and DNA engineering with Mew’s genetic makeup.
With its dark past into account, Mewtwo has been depicted to be a more antagonistic character. This is quite a contrast in comparison to Mew, who comes off as more innocent and friendly. In terms of abilities, Mew features a more balanced set of stats. However, Mewtwo is capable of Mega Evolutions.
What is Pokken Tournament DX?
Pokken Tournament DX is an upcoming game slated to see a release this September for the Nintendo Switch. The DX iteration is an enhanced port of the original Pokken Tournament. As some fans may know, Pokken Tournament was originally released for the arcade platform back in 2015. However, this was only available in the Japan market. It was later released worldwide in 2016 for the Wii U.
Developed by Bandai Namco Studios, Pokken Tournament features elements similar to Bandai Namco’s Tekken franchise. This explains the Pokken title. It is a fighting game that makes use of various Pokemon as its fighters. Notable Pokemon in Pokken Tournament’s band of combatants include the likes of Charizard, Gardevoir, Mewtwo, Weavile, and the ever popular Pikachu.
Similar to other fighter games, Pokken Tournament also features assist characters. Players can summon these Pokemon as a means of help in battles. Notably, assist fighters come in groups of two. Some of these pairs include Jirachi and Whimsicott, Emolga and Fennekin, Croagunk and Sylveon, as well as Espeon and Umbreon.
Upon its release outside of Japan, Pokken Tournament managed to amass positive reviews. Notably, it garnered a nomination as the Best Fighting Game at The Game Awards 2016. However, Pokken Tournament unfortunately lost the title to Capcom’s Street Fighter V.
