| There's a reason this story was cut
On its own, this short story is a good introduction to a villain with enough emotional depth to garner sympathy from the audience. However, the final version of Pokemon: The Movie showed a very different Mewtwo character, so it is obvious that this version of the intro was removed primarily to prevent inconsistencies with the character's personality.


Release Date:
