Mewtwo is imperfect. He was created in an attempt to clone the ancestral Pokemon, Mew. Mew's origins are not known, what is known is that within its DNA lies the building blocks to all Pokemon. Mew has the appearance of an embryo and it seemingly never ages. Mewtwo did not receive this genetic perk. At first hatching it appeared to be a perfect success, though the clone started growing. It eventually grew too strong to be kept under restraint, in its escape destroyed the research facility it was created in. In this purge it freed other undeveloped Mew clones. The cloned sludge, left without a body or identity, yet still with the incomplete building blocks of all Pokemon wander aimless seeking others of their kin. They are known as Ditto and have become a plague on wild Pokemon, killing an absorbing their prey and filling their broken DNA with strains from the world's Pokemon species.

Design wise, I really wanted to bring the theme of birth and life into Mew and by extension, Mewtwo. They both have an umbilical cord ending in a placental brain wrapping around their tail. Mewtwo shares traits with many other Pokemon species as Mew was never supposed to grow, so it took on traits of various Pokemon from its genetic party bus of DNA.

I love Mew. It's absolutely perfect. An adorable, yet somewhat creepy, feline fetus. Great job.

This is great, I think mewtwo is supposed to be scary and not cute or beautiful. Maybe i think so because I grew up with the first Pokemon movie where Mewtwo is wreaking havoc, but that has always been my image of him. And I think the idea of a foetus is perfect for mew as the ancestral pokemon - it is the starting point, the universal pokemon.

Mew looks like a newborn baby but this is great art"

Just about what Kitty said before - I think it's actually great You made it look like a newborn (well more like a fetus), since wasn't it supposed to look like that in "original"? Mostly when he is in his air bubble underwater :p 

Very great done job! Like all your other pictures :)

Suddenly...Pokemon isn't so cute anymore...

But hey awesome work! Nintendo should totally make a game where things are twisted with real life. Sort of like Silent Hill+Pokemon.

Do you plan on giving Gardevoir the same treatment? I'd like to see that :D.

Have you thought about drawing Mewtwo in his armor? He'd probably look seriously badass in your style.

See, I have a theory; That Pokémon takes place in the future. (For example, things like Noah from Christian lore and Albert Einstein are mentioned in the anime.)
My guess is that, the theory being Mew is the "first" Pokémon, that sometime in the near future to OUR time, scientists create some sort of embryo creature like it, and Mew then evolves over time into the variety of Pokémon in the Pokémon universe.
(Also this is a simplified version.)

Just a theory. ^^

Or, ya know, it could be an alternate universe, since nearly all Pokémon share resemblance with animals today.

Or...bunneh icon17  Why not both?

I liked the idea of mewtwo the syrup, is kind of gross but appears to actually be a mew clone. The reality is well crafted. The Pokemon with this appearance, capturalos it would be something dangerous;)
I am impressed with the rest of Pokemon, continue to create them;)
