Let me tell you a story. I lost my Blue cartridge and I felt nostalgic, but I didn't want to consult an emulator since the experience wouldn't be the same. Lucky for me, my video game store had a Blue to spare. It looked like any other cartridge, with the label and everything. So I popped the sucker in and was ready to reunite with Squirtle for some oldtime ass-kicking. The game went as normal; named my rival after a detested Anime character, built my team, earned the Boulder and Cascade badges.

I dug in the grass to look for Abra when Mewtwo appeared. He's level 70, just like he would be in the Unknown Dungeon/Cerulean Cave. Now that was weird; bear in mind I don't have a GameShark. My team was obviously underleveled and I couldn't run, and all it took was several Psychics to knock my team dead. But that's the thing; I blacked out and got back to the Pokemon Center, and I had no Pokemon except for my starter. That's right; my Pokemon didn't just "faint," they were erased from my roster and I couldn't find them in my PC. Frustrated, I reset the game, starting from my last save. Guess what, I didn't get my Pokemon back. On top of it all, my Wartortle went back to being a Level 5 Squirtle. Since I'm guessing the game dictated I must always have one Pokemon on me after I met Professor Oak and left Pallet Town, it reset my starter after it had been "killed" by Mewtwo. I couldn't believe it. I was tempted to start a New Game, but since I'd gotten so far already and didn't feel like grinding in Viridian Forest and Mt. Moon again, I sucked it up, bought some Pokeballs, and started building my team from scratch.

It must be coincidence I first met Mewtwo above Cerulean. Not only was it close to the Unknown Dungeon, but it's also where you could first perform the Mew glitch with the Youngster's Slowpoke. Randomly, throughout the game, Mewtwo found me and wiped out my team. Again, I had to train my Squirtle and catch back my Pokemon. Rinse, lather, repeat. He always went first, no matter what my speed; if I tried using a Pokeball, Mewtwo would kill my Pokemon first, causing me to switch out without having done anything at all. It made me cautious of entering the grass; I caught the mon I needed and ran, stocking myself with Repels wherever I went. Maybe it was useless against an overpowered Mewtwo, but at least it got me through Pokemon-infested areas faster. I learned to dread the Wild Battle theme and the idea of the screen criss-crossing to black.

When I got to Lavender Town, the start menu loaded on its own. The Mew glitch happened without me doing anything. Due to my paranoia, I always carried balls on me, so I managed to catch it without a sweat (okay, I actually was sweating that time). Later when I started a new game and tested what happened if you fainted Mew instead of catching it, it'd be right there; no ifs, ands, or buts, Mew will absolutely not go away unless you catch it.

Another odd thing about Mew. Like your Starter, Mewtwo cannot erase it from your party. But instead of going back to Level 5, Mew will be at the exact level you raised it to. Good for me, since grinding gets damn tedious without a partner to bait-and-switch with.

I beat the Elite 4. Now it was on. I got tired of Mewtwo stalking me and I was going to make him my bitch. Up until this point, I haven't been able to try using a Master Ball on him since he always attacked my Pokemon first. But on the final floor, the final showdown, I finally had a chance to fight back. Depending on what I did, the ending changed...

1. If I used the Master Ball, Mewtwo will force himself to be the first Pokemon in my lineup. In battle, he'd act exactly as a Pokemon would if you didn't have all the badges, with a twist. Instead of randomly using a different move on the Pokemon ("Mewtwo instead used SWIFT!"), he used them on other members of my party. ("Mewtwo instead used SWIFT on BLASTOISE!") The only option on the window was "Fight" and the only move my team had was "Struggle." Not only would he take out my opponent, he set up the Ultimate Middle Finger on me as I could do nothing but watch Mewtwo destroy everything I had. When Mewtwo finished slaughtering my Pokemon, my Mew automatically popped out of its ball and challenged him. When Mew or Mewtwo were down to a sliver of HP, Mew used Explosion (which I had never taught), knocking each other out. After it said Mew and Mewtwo fainted, the game blacked out of battle... and stuck there. No buttons worked. I restarted, and my file was still there. Still in shock, I avoided my cartridge for a long time before I was brave enough to try again...

2. A battle to the death. Instead of struggling, my Pokemon retained all their moves, and the battle went as it normally should. Any Pokemon I lost in the fight couldn't be brought back, but at least I was at a high enough level for most of my team to survive. With Mewtwo gone, the game went back to normal. I still had Mew, I still had my starter. I played for hours and Mewtwo never shown up in the grass or caves again. I minded my own business, yet all I could do was think, "What the heck was that about?"

3. What would happen if I don't attack Mewtwo? Crazy thought, but I got curious enough to test it. I used healing items, defensive moves, tried escaping, let my Pokemon faint. I didn't lay a finger on the guy. When my last Pokemon fell to 1 HP, the music disappeared, but not the sound effects.

A "..." appeared, like when a Gym Leader talks to you after battle. I pressed A. Mewtwo said, "What have I become?" Next thing I knew, the box read, "MEWTWO used STRUGGLE on itself!" Bam. I was taken aback, mortified as I watched this creature beat himself to submission. My Pokemon gained no experience and I returned to the overworld. In place of Mewtwo is a Pokeball. I take it and it's an item that didn't exist until G/S/C: Sacred Ash. Credits play. The game starts again and I'm on top of the Pokemon Tower. I open up my Pokemon and all my team members are there, albeit fainted. I used Sacred Ash and they came back. You could do whatever you want with the Ash actually; if you leave the Tower without reviving your Pokemon, they'll be erased from your team for good and left to rest in peace. The Ash remains in your pocket and cannot be thrown away. But I was touched to have my little guys again, how could I not use it? Next time you go that deep in the Unknown Dungeon, there'll be a tombstone where Mewtwo's sprite used to be. When you interact with it, "Mewww..." will appear in your window with Mew's cry.

Everyone remembers Mewtwo from the R/B/Y days. We remember him as the strongest Pokemon in the world, topped only by Arceus, God Himself. We remember him from the movie, an angsty experiment who questioned his purpose in life. It's because of that incarnate of Mewtwo that we forget an important piece of information from the Pokedex: Mewtwo is a Pokémon that was created by genetic manipulation. However, even though the scientific power of humans created this Pokémon's body, they failed to endow Mewtwo with a compassionate heart.

We take Mewtwo for granted. We brag about  how we caught him with a simple Pokeball, and in later generations, we didn't need to chuck the Master Ball at him anymore. Is Mewtwo truly as "savage" as he lives up to be? What happened to him in the last ending? By forgiving Mewtwo of his atrocities upon my Pokemon, did he kill himself to redeem his soul? Or is he still a monster? Did he become weary and bored of the chase and decided to end it? What does Mew play in all this, and what about my starter? Is the latter reborn each time he dies or does a "clone" take his place? What was on this person's mind while this hack got made?

I know better now than to dismiss Mewtwo. For this, though this hacked game terrifies me to this day, I am grateful.
I figured it was about time Mewtwo got a creepypasta of his own. :) Originally posted in the f yeah Pokemon creepypasta blog.

Great story. Luv it.
Though I think Mewtwo isn't that evil. See the first Pokemon Movie.
Also...
BRAG: Caught lv70 Mewtwo with 30 ultra balls and no Pokemon above lv68, later KO'd all of Lance's Pokemons (All at 72-75) with Mewtwo who was lv74 LOL

I've been wondering why there weren't any Mewtwo creepypasta's around. Being as such he's kinda...creepy in and of himself and all, lmao. He's also one of my favorites and deserves his own creepypasta. I thought this one was really good. It's so well-written and the imagination behind it's superb. Not...particularly creepy, but definitely thought provoking in the way that gray area morals are thought provoking.

I got bored~ And yeah, it's from Mewtwo's point of view during the last part of your creepypasta..... And I say 'they', 'their', etc., when referring to the trainer's gender, because I was too lazy to get off my butt and I mean, didn't have the time to check your profile for the trainer's gender... Ehehehe ^^;

I CANNOT ESCAPE THE ANNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGSSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTT IsweartoArseusI'mbecominganemo TT^TT

But I did tell you I was inspired! ^^

--

It was child's play to tear apart the trainer's team, as it had been child's play to tear apart all of the equally pathetic teams that they had created prior to this. They should have taken their previous defeats as a warning, a warning to never try again. Why they had bothered to willingly come and challenge me here, I couldn't comprehend. It had been foolish for them to so much as think about facing me again--revenge or otherwise.

Yet for some reason, it had been too easy to win, even by my standards. I was used to emerging as the victor in my battles. Yet... Here, the Pokemon had not fought back; hadn't, now that I thought about it, so much as laid a finger on me. In fact... They had only defended themselves from my brutality. The trainer had not allowed them to attack me, at the price of watching all of them die, slowly, in front of them.

I thought back now to all of the other times I had tormented this same human being, forcing them to watch helplessly as I took the lives of every one of their friends. Each time, they had somehow found it in themselves to start over again from scratch--and each time, I cruelly took everything away again. When they had chanced to catch me once, I relentlessly destroyed their team from the inside out.

I had carelessly slaughtered and maimed everything that this trainer had held dear. And even now, as I finished off the very last team that they had produced, they had still refused to seek revenge. Yet somehow this was worse. Giovanni had been right... I was nothing but a heartless monster.

What have I become?

None of those Pokemon had truly deserved to die. This trainer hadn't truly deserved to lose everything. If anything, I should be the one to face my own erasure.... I was the one who deserved to die as slowly and painfully as I'd made the others die, as I'd made this extraordinary human suffer.

I chose the weakest attack I had at my disposal to do it. It had been all that they could do--to Struggle--and I wanted to feel what they had felt. I deserved to feel what they had felt. And even at this point, the trainer's expression was clearly one of horror as they watched me commit my final act of destruction, one on myself.

It was a painfully slow process, but finally I felt my vision start to fade and my mind's usually steady control start to slip. A well-deserved end for the heartless monster I was.

... But I'd forgotten something.

With my last bit of strength, I summoned an item from a far-off region.... An item that would allow its user to erase the pain I had caused, and bring back the life that was rightfully theirs.

And then everything went black...

Ohhh man. I meant to respond to your first comment, 'cause it really made me feel fuzzy. Then I saw this in my inbox and... wow. :wow: I really didn't expect anyone to be inspired by my work enough to do a companion piece, and it makes me so happy. :thanks: I'm impressed with your writing too! It goes great with the original pasta and you got into Mewtwo's head so well. And that isn't an easy thing to do. :) Thank you so much for this! :D It was the highlight of an otherwise stressful day, and I'm so glad you were inspired by the pasta and written something wonderful. :happybounce::squee:

I actually got lucky in my Pokemon Red version and caught Mewtwo with only a single Pokeball. I'd been prepared to use all 99 Pokeballs I had and then resort to the Master Ball, but no, the game decided to be nice to me.

Anyway I've always like Mewtwo. He reminds me of myself, wondering what purpose my life must have...if it does have a purpose...

Nice job on this.
