Either way I wonder if this new forme/new Pokemon will learn "all" moves like Mew or if it'll still have the normal Mewtwo set.
Regardless, Mewtwo appeared in R/B/Y, and the only way to explain his existence is through the anime's telling of Team Rocket creating it. Its PokeDEX data also suggests the same thing that occurred in the anime also occurred in-game, under the player's nose:
It was created by a scientist after years of horrific gene splicing and DNA engineering experiments.
A vicious psychic Pokémon created by genetic engineering. its cold, glowing eyes strike fear into its enemy.
Those are PokeDEX entries from R/B and Crystal.
It doesn't say it was Team Rocket, but they say in-game that they're always after the strongest Pokemon, and that their plans were always foiled somehow by the player. What were those plans? Conquering the world? Theirs was more geared towards finding and stealing the world's strongest Pokemon... and since Giovanni was such a powerful influence (and a lot of his "Rockets" were scientists and engineers in-game, too), it can be suggested that even in R/B/Y, Mewtwo was the result of Team Rocket's lust for the world's most powerful Pokemon. Also, a lone team of scientists probably wouldn't have the funding Giovanni could have made available, being a mobster and all (and just look at that suit; the guy's obviously loaded). If he didn't start it, I bet'cha Giovanni at least funded the operation.
That's what I'm going with, anyway. Regardless, Team Rocket or not, it was genetically engineered, so why did no one attempt this after Mewtwo "ran away" and hid in Cerulean Cave, apparently never to be seen again (until you stumble on it... but that's not even part of the storyline and could be skipped / missing entirely)?
Still doesn't make much sense, and still makes me happy to see that after four generations (not including R/B/Y), this was finally revisited. Yay, Mewbuu.
