* ArtShift: An unintentional example. The "Birth of Mewtwo" introduction was created after the film and was added into rereleases. It is computer animated, unlike the rest of the film.

It's noteworthy that this Pokémon movie is one of the few that is alluded to in the actual series,[[note]]Aside from minor exceptions like the ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'' reference in the Whirl Islands Lugia arc, Drew's Hometown being the main setting of Movie 7 and having its plot mentioned in a 2-part episode, Ash's Aura from movie 8, which comes up a few times in DP, or Dawn possessing the Cresselia Feather that she got in Movie 10 during the Darkrai arc[[/note]] having plot elements set up throughout the first season of the show. It was followed a couple years later with the OVA ''Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns'' that continues the plotline and themes.

Currently the highest-grossing anime film of all time in North America, and had the highest-grossing opening weekend for an animated movie...[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 for two weeks]].

to:

Prior to the films release, there were a series of radio dramas in Japan known as ''Radio/PokemonTheBirthOfMewtwo''. The drama was never released outside of Japan, however most of it was later animated for ''The Birth of Mewtwo'' introduction that airs before the film in home releases.

* AbsenteeActor: Ash's Pidgeotto is nowhere to be seen in the main film and is the only member of Ash's team at the time to be absent from the fight. This was probably to avoid confusion with Corey's Pidgeot. It does appear a few times in the short film preceding the movie, though.



* {{Affably Evil}}: Mewtwo, prior to his HeelFaceTurn.

* TrailersAlwaysLie: Well, ''exaggerate''. Previews that mentioned the soundtrack album would heavily promote the M2M song "Don't Say You Love Me" as if it were a major part of the film, which it isn't. That said, it does appear in the film...specifically, the last ''eight seconds of the credits.''

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: In the original Japanese (and the accompanying guidebooks and ''Birth of Mewtwo'' short), Mewtwo's origin is remarkably underdetailed -- Dr. Fuji goes unnamed, no mention is made of Team Rocket's involvement in the Mewtwo project, and Giovanni's meeting with Mewtwo can easily be interpreted as a chance encounter. All those details come from ''The Birth of Mewtwo'' CD drama, the existence of which goes unacknowledged by official sources. For their part, [=4Kids=] attempted to integrate that informaton into the film itself.

* TakeOverTheWorld: This appears to have been Giovanni's motive for manipulating Mewtwo. [[spoiler:Mewtwo then tries to pull this off himself with his cloned Pokémon... sort of; everyone would be wiped out prior to this, so he wouldn't really be "taking it over" from anyone.]]

** When the trainers are leaving the harbor to New Island, a trainer with a Fearow leaves as well... to never been seen again. She mostly didn't make it to the island. The worst: she doesn't reappear in the ending at all!

* AesopAmnesia: A very literal example. Mewtwo erases everyone's memories of the events on the island, so the characters, especially Team Rocket, can't recall the important life lessons that they learned. This could be justified as Mewtwo believed it was more important to keep his crew safe from harm.

* DeathByAdaptation: Fuji is still alive in the games (at least in ''Red and Blue''), but he gets killed by Mewtwo here.

** Scyther is called Alakazam and Sandslash is called Sandshrew in the dub, but they already know about those Pokémon from the main anime.
