Mewtwo that early in the game.
Well, since we have two Mewtwo evos that are version exclusive, they likely still could play a role in the plot. Looking at the physical appearances, Mega Mewtwo X/Y seem to be branching evolutionary paths Mewtwo takes in regards to its development (Fuji and what they did to it). Mewtwo X looks like the standard Mewtwo, with it gaining a Fighting type could play up the role it had as being genetically altered for that purpose, ie specifically for battle. Mewtwo Y on the other hand takes a more Mew-like appearance, and could reference how Mewtwo evolves when not being altered for battle, or evolving into what it could have been without the horrific gene splicing.
The only thing I wonder is why is the fiercer Mewtwo obtaining in Pokemon X (where Xerneas's life theme seems to fit Mew more) rather than Y? The alternate theory to this I had was Mewtwo X representing having more life and a fighting spirit as opposed to Mewtwo Y, but I think the above about divergent evolution paths based on it's genes probably makes more sense.

Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y are standard Mega evolutions.

So... Mewtwo to return in SSB4 with one Mega evo as the final Smash in the Wii U version, and the other one in the 3DS version, anyone?
I'm thinking, are we sure the Mewtwonite X and Y are version exclusives?
Perhaps they are more similar to Ho-Oh and Lugia in GS, where one of them DOES get more focus in the story, for whatever, plot-related reasons. Yet the other will still be around.
If we stablish that both forms exist in the same setting, and that whichiever you get deppends on how the story goes in either version... I can see why X with Xerneas would get the "rough, fierce-looking" one, while Y with Yveltal gets the "smooth, spiritual-looking" one, for respective contrast.
As I said in another blog comment too, the appearance of these forms and perhaps the contrast with Xerneas and Yveltal does seem to play with the whole "Team Flare seeks a beautiful world" idea.
Mega Mewtwo X may as well be intentionally non-refined with a tacky design, while Mega Mewtwo Y does fit the "over-engineered aesthetic standards" of modern design.
I think what GF trying to do is to bridge Gen I with Gen VI. We are given two starters, one from Kanto, another from Kalos. So it would only be parallel if we are given 2 680 BST legendary, one from Gen I, and another from Gen VI. Mewtwo is the only 680 BST legendary in Gen I, so they have to make 2 Mega to compensate for that. In X, Xerneas is mono type, Mega Mewtwo X is dual type. In Y, Yveltal is dual type, Mega Mewtwo Y is mono type.
In terms of function, Mewtwo's inclusion (as well as the original Kanto starters) reeks of appealing to the Generation 1 Stans. To be fair, it's an easy market to appeal to, nostalgia sells. In terms of narrative, Mewtwo's origin's as a product of an experiment is something that can easily be connected to the concept of "mega" pokemon. What better pokemon to test new concepts and evolutions on than a pokemon created by man?
“And as to you life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths, No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before.”
I think the chances of Mewtwo being the "third version/sequels" legendary are quite likely. Maybe I am saying this only because of the fact it is present along Xerneas and Yveltal in the soundtrack album cover. I also think Mewtwo's prominent presence in Gen VI is more because of it being tied to genetics than to it being a Generation I Pokémon. I am not saying that they aren't trying to please the people who like Generation I games, they seem to be, I just don't think that is the reason for Mewtwo having an apparently huge importance again.
some might say that mewtwo was a cloned 'mega form' of mew, to a degree. genes and amplification of power yadda yadda.
its a little farfetch'd i admit. but it makes sense the first genetically engineered pokemon would show up in a genetic-based generation/region, not 'just' to placate genwunners (the kanto starters on the other hand... not so sure thats anything BUT nostalgia-fodder)
