I think Mewtwo is stronger in my opinion because it looks like it has a better body structure than mew. Well thats my opinion. Well people who is stronger Mew or Mewtwo.

Mewtwo is definitely stronger imo; it may not have access to all TM's in the game, but it can still learn the majority of the best ones. Plus, its stats are far better, with incredible special attack and speed (the only disadvantage over Mew being defense, but not even by a large amount).

Mewtwo is supposed to be the advanced version of Mew and it is very strong in D/P. But in general Mew is way better. Mew is just so secretive and pretty and can learn anything.

Well most people I know would say Mewtwo but I personally think that is a very hard question u asked...but I would have to say it doesn't matter who is stronger out there...it matters how they use their power, how they create the energy and stragtey!

Well, when I actually learned how to play the game effectively, I had only used a Mew out of the two. It had Psychic, its main attack, Rock Slide, for those that I'd prefer not to waste a Psychic on, Horn Drill, which was based on Speed instead of level at the time, and Softboiled, for healing both in and out of battle. At its peak level (which happened to be 87, due to internal battery conflicts), it still couldn't stand up to a L100 Mewtwo.

Of course, when you ask which one of the two is stronger, it hardly solves the problem to have both of them face different pokemon besides each other, because Mew & Mewtwo both have the power to completely annihilate anything else in existence besides each other, so I'm guessing this would be if the two were to face each other.

In that case, Mewtwo has both the ability to take many hits, and the ability to cheaply heal half its total HP, which puts Mew at a great disadvantage already, the only way out (aside from OHKO moves) being to create as similar a moveset as possible. Even then, you're just putting Mewtwo up against a weaker mirror of itself.

Mewtwo may not have as much of a variety as Mew, but you're forgetting that Mewtwo is still an insanely-powerful and merciless (spelling?) beast that can absorb nearly any attack and insta-heal it while killing everyone off, one by one, until it's the last one standing!

(As far as sprites go, Mewtwo's Yellow sprite is kinda awkward, in my opinion, so Mew wins!!!)

As far as stats, Mewtwo wins, but if you're looking at general versatility in movesets, it's Mew. They both excel in different areas, so neither is really stronger than the other if you ask me.

Mewtwo has a base stat total of 680 (mew is 600 i think) any way this makes it the strongest pokemon in R/B but not in G/S/C because lugia and ho-oh also have base stat totals of 680

i believe mew has a higher base stat average
not only that mewtwo has better special attk and physical
even though mew can learn all tms mewtwo comes pretty darn close to learning all of them
if quizzes are quizzical, then what are tests?

There already is an identical thread in Pokémon General.

Use that one please.

You got lost, lost through the night
It's no loss, you'll be alright
Tell me you'll feel better
When you're sleeping through the day
And I'll tell you how you missed it
When you wake
