is a creature in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, it first appeared in the video game Pokémon Red and Blue and their sequels, and later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles, as well as animated and printed adaptations of the franchise. Masachika Ichimura voiced Mewtwo in Japanese, while the creature's younger self is voiced by Fujiko Takimoto in the Sound Picture Box: Mewtwo's Origin CD drama and Showtaro Morikubo in the anime adaptation. In English, Phillip Bartlett voices Mewtwo in Mewtwo Strikes Back, with Dan Green providing the voice in subsequent anime appearances.

In the video games, the player can battle and capture Mewtwo to pit it against other Pokémon. The player first learns of Mewtwo late in Pokémon Red and Blue by reading research documents left in a ruined laboratory on Cinnabar Island. The documents reveal that a solitary scientist spent years genetically engineering a descendant of the Pokémon Mew. Mewtwo eventually escaped after proving too strong to contain.

Regarded as one of the series' strongest Pokémon, it changed the way players approached the games by forcing them to find ways to counteract those using Mewtwo. Studies found the character popular with older male children, which contrasted with its counterpart Mew. Reactions to the character's anime portrayal have been mixed, with some reviewers like the Daily Record citing him as a cliché villain, while others like Animerica and Sight & Sound praised the character's depth.

Its build is very different compared to Mew's, In the original games, Mewtwo is intended to be "the strongest Pokémon ever". It is psychic, uses telekinesis for flight and telepathy to speak. When fighting, it uses its abilities to shield itself or throw opponents to compensate for its lack of speed. Otherwise, it conserves its energy until needed. It can regenerate as well, and is able to quickly recover from near-fatal injuries. Mewtwo stands tall.
