* 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.

* BrokenStreak: 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 [[note]]''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[[/note]]. 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.

*** [[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.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn5BvytJooA The English trailer]] is guilty too - dubbing over footage compiled from said trailers, but also conspicuously never showing footage of Mewtwo speaking. Fans of the original Mewtwo who are blissfully unaware of the controversy may watch it, believe the original Mewtwo returned, get the movie, then wonder why Mewtwo sounds female all of a sudden.

* LostAesop: The movie can't seem to decide on what it wants to say; while much of the story seems to focus on Genesect and Mewtwo trying to find their place in the world, it also seems to repeat ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'''s message of "all life is equal", and out of nowhere near the end, it seems to be "Everyone is your friend"; something that the final ten minutes gets pretty {{anvilicious}} about. [[BrokenAesop Also, does that]] ''[[BrokenAesop include]]'' [[BrokenAesop those who want to exploit others for their own benefit (as happened to the both of them by their creators)?]]

* CluelessAesop: At the end, Mewtwo and the Red Genesect learn that "on this planet, we are all friends", seemingly forgetting about their creators (the former's electrocuted it for no clear reason, and the latter's was [[AnimalWrongsGroup Team Plasma]]), both of whom were most certainly ''not'' anyone's friends, least of all their creations'. And that's ''ignoring'' the personality differences among both humans and Pokémon that ensure not all of them are friends to each other...

* ShipTease: The scene with the feminine Mewtwo and the masculine Red Genesect [[spoiler:above the Earth, and the latter later saving the former as they fall]], has some romantic undertones.

* NoOSHACompliance: Who the hell builds the power supply for a New York-sized city underneath a Pokémon reserve, anyway?!

* NoOSHACompliance: Who the hell builds the NoOSHACompliance: So, why exactly build a nature reserve over a city's power supply for a New York-sized city underneath a supply? Especially one that holds Pokémon reserve, anyway?!that can easily break through barricades? Furthermore, why do this when said power supply is not only the only one a city the size of New York has (are backup generators not a thing?), but also dangerous enough that a failure would cause the park to ''explode?''

** 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 its 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]].

* AdaptationalWimp: While this movie's Mewtwo is by no means weak, it's far less powerful in comparison to [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie the original one]]. Mega Mewtwo Y is also afflicted, as the monstrous Special Attack boost it gets in the games is absent, with a greater focus put on an increase in Speed (which is miniscule in the games).
