You can see the new Pokemon in action here:
The new Pokemon shares quite a few characteristics with Mewtwo. The obvious ones are its purple color, piercing eyes, and what looks like a bipedal body type. Whether it is a psychic type remains to be announced.
Speculation of a new Mewtwo form proved to be true when the director of Pokemon X and Y, Junchi Masuda, revealed the new Pokemon on Japan’s Pokemon Smash tv show.
While it’s obvious that this new creature looks like Mewtwo, there isn’t confirmation of the unofficially dubbed “MewThree” being either an evolution/form of Mewtwo, or whether or not it’s just a brand new Pokemon. The official Pokemon website says, “It is suspected that the newly discovered Pokemon has some sort connection with the legendary Mewtwo.”
What do you think about this new Pokemon? What does this mean for Pokemon X and Y if they’re bringing back old legendary Pokemon with a new twist for the new games?
Poke Chat, Hypable’s Pokemon podcast, will release a special episode tomorrow discussing this brand new information!
