New Trailer For 16th Movie Shows Off Mewtwo's New Form

    A brand new trailer for the 16th Pokémon movie, Pokémon: Extremespeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens, has been released through the official Japanese Pokémon Youtube channel this evening. The trailer shows off Mewtwo in its new form and the official Japanese site has given a name for the new form, calling it Awakened Mewtwo, although it isn't clear to if that is an official name or something to avoid confusion for readers.


    You can check out the latest movie trailer right here.

    This trailer gives us the first proper look at Mewtwo in action and also reveals that this Mewtwo has a female voice actor, not male like the Mewtwo we've seen in the past movies. The movie also showcases some nice looking scenes of Genesect, and gave us some new footage of the Eevee short at the end.


    Interestingly the trailer may also have revealed something about the new Eeveelution, Sylveon. 1:44 into the video it shows the Eeveelutions in boxes which each seem to represent the Pokémon's type, the box Sylveon is shown in seems to have a wing design on it and is shaped like an egg. While this by no means confirms anything at all, it's still worth noting.

      So Mewtwo's gone full on Freiza and is now voiced by an old lady too.

      I wonder how the frell are they going to explain THAT discrepancy.

      Re: The Sylveon image at the end.

      So, people have been speculating that the frame around Sylveon hints towards it being a flying type because of the 'wing' like shape at the bottom.



      It's not the only instance of similar shapes being used in typings other than flying.

      But, more to the point, it's actually very much a 1:1 representation of Sylveon's ears, rather than a 'wing', and the shape of the bubble as a whole is also the same shape as the blue 'inner' part of its ear.

      In all, despite every other Eeveelution sporting something that quite closely represents their type (though Espeon and Umbreon seem quite abstract, also), it seems that either Sylveon's type is still deliberately being suppressed through similar imagery, or lends more (or as much as) to the suggestion that it is a new Sound type or Bug type as it does to it being a Flying type.

      I can buy the idea of it being a bug type. It would explain the eyes, the beautifly-like Milotic colour palette and the random butterfly 'bows'. It certainly seems to be more likely than flying type.

      That said, when every other Eeveelution's 'bubble' is hardcore focussed on their specific type - and Sylveon's comes packing with a representation of the shape of its ears, I can also buy the reasoning for a 'Sound' type too.

      I think they're deliberately trolling us along, though, so I'm not putting much stock in anything until they come out and say one way or another, really.


      Also, just to play devil's advocate on the sound type idea even further:


      Sylveon's singing producing this effect could also be a representation of a move or ability related to Sound to Colour Synesthesia.

      I'm really beginning to think that Sylveon is a new type introduced to highlight this new 'strengthening bonds' game mechanic. I guess Love would lend itself most to that, although personally I would prefer something else.

      I feel like Mewtwo prayed to Arceus to have it's butt put on its head...

      This version looks weird... :?

      Currently unsure as to whether I like NewTwo or not. We shall see when we find more information, I think!

      Let me clarify what I said earlier, I can’t assume it is not a pure psychic, I am hoping it is not a pure psychic. If it were to be a pure psychic, it would be better of as a new pokémon. Personally, I think it would be cool if it was a psychic fighting!

      It just looks like a bottle opener to me. >_<
