** The Douse Drive Gensesect is an almost total wuss, being far more timid than the other four, only ever talking about going home, having the voice of a young child, and the majority of its fight scenes are when it's under the control of the Red Genesect. Not exactly a portrayal befitting [[TheDreaded a feared prehistoric top hunter]]. That it's the Douse Drive Genesect that undergoes this is even something of a meta example, as the Douse Drive is often considered the only Drive worth using in the games [[NotCompletelyUseless as it's Genesect's only access to a Water-type move]].

* AdaptedOut: In the games, an ex-Team Plasma scientist named Dudley completed Genesect after N ordered Team Plasma to cancel the project. No such character appears in the movie or series, as the Pokémon's origin has been changed so that ''five'' Genesect are created and completed solely by several Team Plasma members working for Colress.

* StoryBreakerPower: Mega Mewtwo Y has no reason to ''not'' be used -- it doesn't require immense concentration or cause Mewtwo physical or mental straining, it makes Mewtwo faster than even the extremely fast Red Genesect, there's no sign it weakens Mewtwo's power or stamina, and it has no pre-requisite to transform; it can just do it whenever it wants from the moment it was created. And yet Mewtwo, for no reason, often opts to revert back to its normal state and even go into battle without transforming, despite having no clear advantage in doing so.



* SuperMode: Mega Mewtwo Y functions as this for Mewtwo. Interestingly, it can do this without [[TransformationTrinket Mewtwonite Y]].

* UniquenessDecay: Prior to this movie, Mewtwo was portrayed as a unique specimen with a unique personality across all Pokémon media; this movie introduces a second Mewtwo into the animé's canon, and essentially turns Mewtwo from a one-of-a-kind character into a race of two.
** Some fans try to justify this as a means of having both of Mewtwo's Mega Evolutions show up at the same time, with the first "male" Mewtwo presumably getting the masculine X form and the second "female" Mewtwo retaining the Y form. While the director's official reason for the second Mewtwo was that he "thought it would be better", the use of both Mega Mewtwos in a brief scene during the intro to the first Mega Evolution special lends credence to this possibility. It remains to be seen, however, if there will ever be a proper meeting of the two.
** To some extent, this also holds true for Genesect, since only one (non-shiny) was ever created in the games as opposed to the five seen here.

meet-up has never happened.
** To some extent, this also holds true for Genesect, since only one (non-shiny) was ever created in the games as opposed to the five seen here. It's much less blatant than Mewtwo, however, as Genesect hadn't been previously established to be a one of a kind Pokémon in the animé continuity.

It marks the anime debut of the legendary Pokémon Genesect as well as one of Mewtwo's Mega Evolutions introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY''. The movie follows Ash, Iris, Cilan, and their Pokémon as they arrive in New Talk City, which is being attacked by the Genesect Army, a group of five Genesect led by a Shiny one known as the Red Genesect. The only one who can stop them is Mewtwo, who notes that the Genesect are made by humans, just like it was. Of note, this is a new, separate Mewtwo rather than a return of the Mewtwo from [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie the first movie]] [[Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns and its sequel]].

* BreakingOldTrends: Until this film, all the final films released in the lifecycle of a given generation had a Pokémon from the next series of games as the main Pokémon. [[labelnote:*]]''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'' with Lugia, ''Anime/PokemonHeroes'' with Latias/Latios, ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea'' with Manaphy and ''[[Anime/PokemonZoroarkMasterOfIllusions Zoroark: Master of Illusions]]'' with Zorua and Zoroark.[[/labelnote]]. While Mega Mewtwo Y is a new concept in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', it's a Mega Evolution of an older Pokémon and not a brand new species like usual. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, Genesect gets top billing over it]]. Despite this, the ''Eevee and Friends'' short picks up the slack by featuring Sylveon.

* BigAppleSauce: New Talk City is very clearly designed like Castelia City, which itself is New York City. A different reading of the city's name, "New Tork City", makes it even clearer. See NoCommunitiesWereHarmed.

*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeFEAA4JvaM The first Japanese trailer]] is perhaps the biggest fibber of them all, as (besides the usual completely different footage) it makes no effort to imply that this Mewtwo is anything but the original; it doesn't speak, Ash instantly recognises it, and Cilan is surprised he knows what it is. Only for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTyPZGdEyyc the next trailer]] to have Mewtwo speak, revealing a very different voice from the original.
