Continuing with our celebration of Pokémon’s 20th Anniversary we want to wish one of the most popular legendary Pokémon in any generation a Happy Birthday. So Happy Birthday to Mewtwo! But you maybe wondering how we know that today is Mewtwo’s Birthday? Well, according to a journal entry in found in the Pokémon Mansion in the original Pokémon games: Pokémon Red and Blue (here in the states) Mew gave birth to Mewtwo on February 6th (as seen below). This is after a lot of genetic experiments done to that Mew by Scientist, presumably part of the evil organization Team Rocket. Interestingly enough one of those Scientist is speculated to be Mr. Fuji (picture in the Pokémon Origins movie below), a kindly old man that you help in Lavender Town earlier on in the game who helps orphaned Pokémon.
For more interesting info on Mewtwo don’t forget to come back here to thearcadearchives.com on February 27th (the official Pokémon Day) for our special two part Pokémon 20th Anniversary special. This episode is featuring a look at Pokémon The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back.
