Today is February 6, a special occasion for fans of the original Pokemon games. No, it’s not his birthday pokemon red and green, but it does mark the birthday of the legendary Pokemon Mewtwo! In the original Game Boy game, Mewtwo was cloned from Mew’s DNA in a lab on Cinnabar Island. By the time the player arrives, the lab is in ruins, but several diary entries about Mewtwo’s creation can be found. A post reveals February 6 is Mewtwo’s birthday, and fans on social media are celebrating the Psychic type!
Even as the Pokedex has reached over 1000, Mewtwo has remained one of the franchise’s most beloved Pokemon. While much of that is due to the main Pokemon games, the character’s role in various media has also helped. Pokemon: The First Movie gave the character a tragic backstory, as well as one of the most iconic quotes in franchise history. Given all that, it’s easy to see why Mewtwo still finds such a passionate following after all these years.
