Brothers by XD-385 Brothers by XD-385
A commission I paid for early last year. This wonderful piece of art is copyright :iconsahtori: and :iconmiu3:
I was given permission to upload it here.


A superclone of the legendary Mew, Mewtwo was originally created for battle under the orders of Giovanni. But once he became aware of the fact that he was created as nothing more than a weapon, Mewtwo rebelled against Giovanni and attempted to kill him by destroying his stronghold, but ultimately failed. He then returned to the same island where he had been created, which was now in ruins from his rampage after learning that his creators cared nothing for him. He then swore vengence against humanity for attempting to enslave him and built an impressive fortress that would serve as his base of operations. The island it rested on was then renamed New Island.

Over the course of only a few months, Mewtwo observed multiple Trainers throughout the Kanto region and their Pokemon to see if they had the right stuff. After 'inviting' a number of them to his home, Mewtwo used his unsurpassed psychic powers to create an artificial hurricane to see which of the Trainers would have the bravery and the right Pokemon to reach New Island. Only six or so Trainers made it, including Ash Ketchum. But Mewtwo then captured their Pokemon and cloned them into superclones like himself, although it is uncertain just how they differed from the originals. But ever the hero, Ash led a charge against Mewtwo and his clones with the original Pokemon backing him. But Mewtwo soon found himself facing off against his original, a Mew. While the other clones and originals engaged each other in a battle to the death, Mew and Mewtwo reached a stalemate as neither could truly overpower the other. But when they launched two psychic blasts at each other, Ash dashed into the center of the arena in an attempt to stop the senseless carnage. The result was his death. However, the tears of the Pokemon and their clones somehow revived him as they were crushed that someone had died while trying to stop them from harming each other further. Mewtwo learned that life is precious and cannot be controlled by someone other than its owner and departed from New Island with the other clones before erasing the memories of the humans and Pokemon that remained behind, believing "This best forgotten."

Still distrustful of humans, Mewtwo and his clones found a new home in a crater mountain in the Johto region that also had some small ruins in the center. But Giovanni, who was not present at New Island, discovered Mewtwo's hideout. He then led an invasion himself with Black Tulip as his second-in-command. But the invasion ultimately failed when Ash Ketchum saved and helped heal a gravely exhausted Mewtwo, who then erased the memories of every single Team Rocket operative who intended to do harm to him. From that day forward, Mewtwo viewed Ash as his only friend and set off into the world alone after sending his clones out into the world so they could live their lives as they saw fit.

Mewtwo did not see Ash again for over a year. By the time they were reunited, Mewtwo had found a home in a place known as Drizzle City due to its frequent rainfall. He kept a low profile and only moved at night, making him something of an urban legend. While still wary of humans, Mewtwo no longer hated them. But his ruthless killing of Ash would come back to haunt him in the form of his brother, XD-385. Enraged over the death of his friend, the bioweapon attacked Mewtwo without mercy. But Mewtwo was able to repulse the attack by sending his brother to the outskirts of Drizzle City with an oversized Shadow Ball. But that was his final upset as Mewtwo became the first victim of XD-385's psychotic state. With an arm shattered, Mewtwo was brought to an inch of his life when his brother explained that Ash was the Chosen One. Mewtwo was both shocked and horrified. He had not just killed a good kid. He had murdered the world's greatest hero.

Mewtwo was rescued once again by Ash, who tearfully begged his friend to spare the proud Pokemon. After reluctantly getting his brother to a Pokemon Center for medical treatment, XD-385 explained what had happened on that dreadful night where Ash died for the first time. When confronted with this info, Mewtwo turned away in shame, believing he was not worthy of Ash's forgiveness. But the Chosen One showed Mewtwo that he still saw him as a friend. Overcome with joy, Mewtwo swore himself as Ash's eternal friend. From that day forward, Ash became the brother Mewtwo never had.

Although usually calm and quiet with a stern face, Mewtwo has steadily become more friendly and open since he was reunited with Ash. He is especially friendly with Ash's children and has been officially added to the Ketchum family as Amber and Onyx's godfather. He has since improved his relationship with his brother, XD-385. He also frequently battles alongside Latios, although they do not seem to be particularly close. He harbors especially strong feelings for Ash, as he was the first person to ever call him 'friend'. :manhug: They are so close; May once even suspected that they were a couple.

Mewtwo's powers are great indeed. Despite having been easily bested by XD-385 and other powerful foes, Mewtwo firmly believes he is the most powerful pureblooded Pokemon alive. One of his most used moves is Shadow Ball, as he has been shown creating a large cluster of them to strike the enemy at all sides. But Mewtwo's most powerful weapon is his mind, which is strong enough to create destructive weather on a global scale. Mewtwo even used his power to aid in Giovanni's assassination alongside Ash and several of his allies.

But although he has been forgiven by XD-385 for it, Mewtwo's murder of Ash will eventually come back to haunt him once again. When Ash was killed that night on New Island, Mewtwo unknowingly unleashed an unspeakable evil into the world..... :evillaugh:
