Pokemon White/Black: Mewtwo returns via DS, TCG and online TV special

Nintendo's announced that Mewtwo, one of the original Legendary Pokemon from the game's Red and Blue iterations, will be returning to the Pokemon universe in the form of a downloadable character for the DS's Pokemon Black and White. There'll also be a Mewtwo-EX card issued for the Pokemon Trading Card Game, and a rescreened TV special exploring the character's reappearance.

The Legendary Mewtwo will become available for Pokemon Black and White for a limited-time event beginning on Feb 12. Nintendo promises more details closer to the time. There's also a Mewtwo-EX trading card (seen above) to be packaged as part of the new line of trading cards to go on-sale Feb 8. Finally, the Mewtwo-starring 2006 online TV special, The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon, is having a rescreening on the Pokemon site now.

If all of this doesn't make a damn ounce of sense to you, the site also features an interactive timeline of Mewtwo's past misadventures. Once you see his storied history you'll come to have a new-found respect for the unique psychic mastermind.

    Age me when you suggest there are people with no idea who or what Mewtwo is XD Age me more when I realize I waited anxiously for Base set to make it stateside when I was a kid. Age me the most when I realize how long ago my Blue game was and how much Mewtwo kicked all kinds of ass.

    I haven't played the TCG since the first set but compared to those that card is nuts. Even with that 2-prize rule on it. But then perhaps it's just that I've been away from the game so long that it's changed enough to where that's fine. Only Blastoise really comes close and you had to evolve up to him.

    I remember seeing the original pokemon movie, I still have the video actually. He was freaking difficult to catch too

    Never caught Mewtwo in the original. Guess today's my lucky day!

    You can't claim to have played the originals if you never even caught Mewtwo...

    Good to know Mewtwo is still revered as (one of) the greatest Pokemon of all time. If only I cared enough about the appalling vermin and cretin that pass for Pokemon these days to get Black/White. Oh well, I'll just use him in HeartGold, where he was originally included.

    My god, I remember when the first Pokemon movie came out. It featured Mewtwo. That was 12 years ago. 0.o

    Hey, where is Mewtwo Returns on the timeline? And "The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon" came out 6 years ago!? Seems like yesterday. D:

    Today, we recognize Mewtwo's inauguration into the official classification of Legendary Pokemon. Today is a good day.
