Familiar Pokémon unveiled for Pokémon X / Y

Pokemon X Y (newmewtwo)Last week the official US Pokémon Twitter account tweeted that there was going to be some big news regarding Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. That news arrived with the announcement of a new Pokémon.

The Pokémon Smash show in Japan was the first to unveil a familiar looking Pokémon that appears to share quite a resemblance to Mewtwo. The Internet is now rife with views as to whether this is an evolution of Mewtwo or, despite the similarities, if it is an altogether brand new Pokémon.


Pokemon X Y (new pokemon mewtwo)Pokémon.com have updated their page for the game and released a video, calling it “A New Pokémon with a Familiar Look,” saying that “the newly discovered Pokémon has some sort of connection with the Legendary Mewtwo – a powerful Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Red and Blue Versions.”

The video also shows the Pokémon using some recognisable moves, such as Energy Ball, Shadow Ball and Psywave (however it might also be worth noting the small text which tells us “game footage not final” – so anything can change from now up to its eventual release).

The unnamed Pokémon is also expected to make an appearance in the upcoming film Extreme Speed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens, which opens in Japan in July.

What are your thoughts on this mysterious Pokémon?

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be released on the Nintendo 3DS worldwide this October.
