    The fact it's taking place in "New York" really makes me think they transposed the original idea for the Plasma vs. Rocket Two-Parter into this movie, with Castelia being replaced by a different interpretation of New York, and, of course, rewriting the plot to focus on the respective Legendaries as opposed to the teams themselves.

    EDIT: Also, the Official Site has a bio for Sableye on his own.



    Seems it ISN'T part of the gang prior to the film, but meets Ash and Co. in the film.

    And one for the gang's group (Charizard, Dragonite, the Starters, Emolga, Pansage, and Axew), and then...uh...one with some random assortment of Pokemon including Feraligatr and Persian, which I assume is probably the Pokemon Hills Pokemon.

    Abilities can be showcased when they are relevant, as was the case with Arceus' Multitype. Mewtwo could also be given yet another signature move. In either case, the new element would reflect the personality change, which could work in the games with the new bonding system.

    As I say later on in this post, mewtwo has existential issues with itself. The personality is still there.

    I swear that Pokemon is going to get some sort of evo this gen. Really excited for it, cause a Sableye evo can be all sorts of awesome.

    Mewtwo still has the same personality, he mentions to the Genesect's that they are not supposed to exist in this world, just like himself. He realizes he is a creation of man, yet he still does what he has to to protect Pokemon.

    That doesn't mean that he has the same personality. He realizes that he wasn't meant to exist, but he doesn't see it as excuse to cause destruction. He now protects everyone rather than just the clones he created. In the past, he would have defended Genesect.

    I don't think Mewtwo wants to destroy Genesect, though.

    I imagine he probably wants to free it from its armored "prison", so he's defending it by defeating it. Odds are, the ending of the movie will probably have Genesect "die", but then be "reborn" as a free individual (whether or not that'll involve its armor falling off and the "True Genesect" being seen is unknown), and either go off with Mewtwo or something.

    While I still understand the point that "Real Mewtwo" could mean a personality shift, that plus the Mewtwo's Awakening makes it sounds like Mewtwo gains a huge power boost someway, and Pokemon always portrays it with a new forme. Rare is it to see a Pokemon just surpassing themselves. I mean sure Pokemon always overcome fears or doubts or what not, but when a legendary is awakened, and the real selves come out, its with a new forme. Shaymin, and Keldeo proved that.

    God forbid should we see something that hasn't been done to death before.

    I don't think Mewtwo will obtain a new form, but now I'm wondering about Genesect...Silktree, I usually take your word when it comes to merchandising trends and all, but now I'm a bit skeptical about prior claims that the merchandise had no more surprises left. I mean, even if Sableye doesn't obtain an evolution within the film, it's being promoted quite a bit (a spot on the poster, an individual character summary) that it seems like we would've seen merchandising of it prior to this, yet, as far as I know, we haven't.

    Tone down the attitude first of all, okay? I'm not some first year amateur. Second of all, I'm fine with something new. I'm just saying that from the Pokemon movies we shouldn't expect much, even if they're going for a more overall feel for the movie having it connect to the Anime. Plot and background is good and all, character development is even better, but in then end when they give us real mewtwo and awakening I expect a form. Cynical output sure? But I don't expect them to advertise character development on such a level for a movie targeted at 9-12yr olds.

    There are no placeholders. That doesn't rule out another surprise, but suffice to say that they haven't been shy about using placeholders before.

    Sounds like Mewtwo has basically been flanderized.

    How exactly? Because he acknowledges that he was created by man? Cause if anything its a pretty cool thing to see them do.

    At the end of Mewtwo Returns, Mewtwo left on its own to search for the meaning of its life, and then here Mewtwo declared that it was not meant to exist like the five Genesect. So depressing.

    It's nice to know that the Sableye on the movie poster is confirmed as a movie-only pokemon.

    Unless I miscomprehend this, didn't they already dealt with death before in the Pokemon movies? (Latios/Lucario)

    On the side note.. Anyone think that, that Mewtwo is the Mewtwo from the ending of Mewtwo Returns?
