I would say that Mewtwo is the sole inperfection in Red/Blue.
Why make such a perfect game and spoil it with an uber pokemon at a high level? The same about the birds too. What dy'all thin k?

...Why did they make Rayquaza? Hmm? </offtopic>

Anyway, Mewtwo IS an uber, but it is also a sidequest. I believe Nintendo put Mewtwo in the game, to be the final destination, and to be the goal of the game. Mewtwo is not so bad, and although it is an uber, I think hes cool. ;)

THey made it for the anime I guess. THe very first movie was the best and although I hate the anime as a whole, I could watch that movie over and over and over again (along with the banned episode where {tentacruel} destroyed a city). Anyway Mewtwo is awesome, and I think taht all ubers have a reason even though it seems you think not. Ubers are kool and fun to catch, they are interesting things to do that make you want to play the game more.

Mewtwo is Ok. He's a good pokemon to catch for weak trainer battles but if the other pokemon is the same level or higher it sucks. I think Mewtwo is a little better than any other Psychic but it's not that good and I still prefer Alakazam. But thats just my opinion.

I think mewtwo was too uber at that time coz it was only weak against bug type attacks.

[rant]Why Did They Make {mewtwo}!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

Meh who cares just your opinion but what your saying then there should be topics that say: Why did They Make Lugia? Why Did they Make Ho-Oh? Why Did They Make Rayquaza?

Don't you like Legendaries? And you say Spoil it with a Uber at a High Level, Then does that mean Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald were spoiled by there Uber pokemon at high levels?[/rant]

I think there just there because then poeple will show them off to their friends and stuff and then there friends will buy the game and it's just a continuous cycle so more people buy it. but also like Krisp said it's the Final Destination, It's the strongest pokemon in the game and they just put it at a high level so it's hard to capture, same as all Lengendaries

Mewtwo adds character to the game, its like Ooo im gonna but LG so I can complete the game and get Mewtwo at the end! Its a step in the pokemon journey, it isnt actually that uuber compaired to other uubers, its just like one of the best Psychic pokemon. Yes in the movie it was like OMG IM UUBER I KICK YOUR BUTT but in the games its like a hyped up Alakazam.

Mewtwo is good, im glad it was made. ^_^

Legendaries exist for one purpose from the way I see it; they give the player satisfaction. In the case of Mewtwo, it represents the pinnacle of the player's achivements in catching them all. Working your way through the game, then catching an ultra-powerful Pokemon gives a lot of satisfaction and pride to the player. It won't be the same if all Pokemon were all the same old mundane non-Lengendary Pokemon.

What's wrong with Legendaries?
It is true that they are powerful and hard to defeat but all of them has a weakness.They also make the game more interesting by making them hard to catch and raise which makes the game popular (thats what I think).

There's something I don't like Ubers. They are legendaries and I think Nintendo created Mewtwo (and other legendaries) just to let us play with them and defeat gyms or elites. Legendaries are boring and are at high level when you catch it. It takes a long time and I'm anoyyed1But I still caught it! :lol:

Mewtwo is there for the whole "pokemon master" goal, you catch the strongest pokemon in the game, now your a pokemon master. Mewtwo couldn't have been there for any other reason.

However what they should've done was made Mew easier to catch, make an additional dungeon for it, or have hang out in Unknown Dungeon with Mewtwo. Seeing as Mewtwo is Mew's clone Mew should be 150 and Mewtwo should be 151 and they should both be catchable somewhere in the game without having to use a glitch. But what's done is done we cannot do anything about it.

That's Impossible, the games were made long before the anime in Japan, and unless you can't catch Mewtwo in Red or Green Mewtwo can't have been made for the anime.

I think they had to make mewtwo a Uber. how can it be called the most powerful pokemon without being an Uber, even though it can be beat if you know what to give your pokemon.

Mewtwo's the point of the game, besides Pokedex, training, and the E-4.

Also, they needed a final Legendary for the game, something to make people's friends jealous. The birds are easy to get, but M2 ya have to train your pokemon to relatively high levels to even battle him.

Well, if the birds are easy to catch, then what else would you use your masterball for other than Mewtwo? Point: You don't need to be at any high level, just need the right tool ^_^

And my opinion on Mewtwo is that it is fine to have in the game, only because you have to beat the Elite Four first, if it was able to catch before that it would ruin the whole Elite Four part of the game imo.

ya, like rayquaza in Emerald

Nothing else to really say, Mewtwo is there as the final destination, you have caughten/killed the strongest monster you are the strongest, and, I have seen it happen, a lot of kids, one'll catch mewtwo, show it to another, the other will say, wow, he's strong, I want one that strong, I'll buy the game so I can, PS, if you understand the logic in that please clue me in.

What game does not have a super hard challange in the end?
For Pokemon it happens to be catching the final "uber" monster (at least for me...).

I'm going with the Mewtwo-was-something-to-do-once-you-beat-the-elite-4 line of reasoning. Also, you can't tell me that your strategies went up a notch when you faced other people's Mewtwos and yours had fainted.

actually, your stategies can go up sometimes if you face hard. thats what happened to me when i faced a team of 100, all i had were 74. I almost won too, it came down to one pokemon.

mewtwo isn't really that hard to beat, shouldn't you have like lvl 60+ when you go to the pokemon league? the point is that they wanted the players to do something else beside the fact that the goal is also to get lvl 100. Why else did they have mewtwo in a hard cave with strong pokemon? The game can't end after the pokemon league, they found something good after the league in like emerald with the battle frontier.

Mewtwo is ace but the two reasons I hate it are

1. Because all the noobs and people that have all legendaries and think they're cool always have Mewtwo with rubbish moves like Psychic, Psybeam, Psycho Boost and Psywave. (I know it can't learn them but what the heck!)

2. On SSBM the moves are rubbish. Disable, Psychic Lift ( :? ) , Purple aura ( :? ) and some random psysical moves. He's good and powerful 'n' all but just too noobish for me....

The whole point of a legendary strong pokemon is to be Uber. That's like saying they should of never made Ganondorf because he is only weak to the Master Sword. (Zelda fan's are aware)

They didn't make him for the sure purpose of destroying everyone. In the movies he is unbeatable but in the game's it's possible to take hime down with big attacks so be thankful.

I vote Yes, they should of made mewtwo even stronger in my opinion same with the birds. If you don't like Mewtwo being Uber then don't use him or fight against him....that simple.

Mewtwo was made (I think) as a reward for people who had worked hard and had completed the Elite Four. But I think Mew should have been in Cerulean Cave and Mewtwo should have been downloadable from those roadshows.

<cowers away in corner at big nasty mob of mewtwo fans>

In SSBM he has Teleport, Confusion, Disable, Shadow Ball.
Not the best Mewtwo moves :P

Yeh, of course I love the big purple genetic disaster aka Barney the Dinosaur.

But in all honesty, even Mr. I love Mewtwo he is liek da bestest eva must hate it when he faces a n00b with:

Mewtwo
Jolly
EVs: 255 Attack, 255 Defence

- Psychic
- Confusion
- Hidden Power Psychic
- Future Sight

Hmmm, what should I use? Thinks for a long time - PSYCHIC. pwns all.

MOO2 U SUK BADLY

Just wondering but what has that got to do with the topic? You ask 'Why Did Nintendo Make Mewtwo' and you come up with that crap

Yes like you said i do hate going up against Mewtwo (i would just laugh if i came up against one like that) but i've taken down loads of them with my trusty Umbreon.

And how in anyway is Mewtwo related to Barney? Dragonite looks ALOT like Barney where as mewtwo does not.

Oh and I am "Mr. I Love Mewtwo" but i don't think he's the best ever, there is no best pokemon and i think everyone realises that (apart from n00bs but not everyone's perfect (Like Mewtwo :P ))

PS, I was replying to the comments in any random order
