Mewtwo is a legendary psychic-type Pokémon from Generation I. He is part of the so-called "Mew duo" along with Mew. Both Pokémon were introduced in the animated film Pokémon: The First Movie, also called Mewtwo Strikes Back (1998).

Mewtwo does not evolve from any other Pokémon. Instead, it was created in a scientific laboratory, cloned from one of Mew's eyelashes.

Mewtwo does not normally evolve into other Pokémon, either, but it can mega evolve into Mega Mewtwo X or Y when exposed to the Mega Stones Mewtwonite X or Y.
