Special episode, a sequel to the events in Pokemon The First Movie (while it was aired as a side-story episode in Japan, it was given a direct-to-video release in America)Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, has caught a clue to the location of the powerful Pokémon Mewtwo and has sent an agent to find him. In the meantime, Ash & co. are passing through the Johto region when they encounter a woman who told them about the vitalizing water of Purity Canyon...coincidentally, Mewtwo's new location. Soon, an all-out battle between Mewtwo's clone Pokémon "family" and the forces of Team Rocket breaks out, with Ash and his friends caught in the middle.
This special provides examples of:
A Glass in the Hand: Giovanni does it twice, first with a glass he's drinking from, and to a walkie-talkie (!) near the end of the movie.
A Glass of Chianti: Or what looks like whiskey, in this case. Surprisingly untouched by 4Kids for the dub.
Love Redeems: Sort of. He was actually one of the good guys, but Cullen Calix was obsessed with studying the spring of Purity Canyon, even if it meant harming it. But once Mewtwo wipes his memory, he realizes that he's in love with Luna and that this is more important than research, so he settles down with her rather than pursue his ambitions.
Offscreen Moment of Awesome: A massive battle undoubtedly takes place while Ash is taking Mewtwo to the spring between Brock and Misty vs what looks like every Team Rocket operative. It's going to start up and...we cut to Ash dragging an injured Mewtwo up the stairs. We NEVER see any of the battle.
Parental Substitute: Mewtwo acts much like an anxious father regarding the other clones, and debates whether he should let them set out on their own or if he should make them stay where he can guard them.
Does it count if Mewtwo technically is one of their parents?
Yes, since he isn't biologically related to them. He's their creator, but not their father.
What the Hell, Hero?: A subtle one; Ash needs to save Mewtwo's life by throwing him into the spring. Cullen then tells him not to, because it might contaminate the spring, which he's obsessed with studying. Ash's response is to look pissed at Cullen's selfishness and throw Mewtwo in anyway.
Zerg Rush: By various Bug-type Pokémon after Team Rocket occupies Mewtwo's island home. By the way, Bug is super-effective on Psychic. Until the Psychic gets its turn.
