* {{Jossed}}: Even after the movie was released and all was said and done, a few fans thought that Mewtwo's new form must be Psychic/[[TheFairFolk Fairy-type]], explaining its feminine voice and personality to a minimal extent. Turns out, Mega Mewtwo Y is pure Psychic.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There were efforts to use the original Mewtwo. Unfortunately, the rights issues with the specific Mewtwo that were discovered during production scuttled those plans.


* ExiledFromContinuity: [[https://www.pokebeach.com/2019/07/mewtwo-strikes-back-evolution-impressions-changes-and-sequels According to]] ''Anime/MewtwoStrikesBackEvolution'' producer Hidenaga Katakami, this is ultimately why this movie used a different Mewtwo; the rights to the original Mewtwo are owned by Takeshi Shudo's estate, which is also likely why said character scarcely appeared after Shudo left the series.

* ColbertBump: Indie actress Miriam Pultro voices Mewtwo in the English dub. Ironically, this movie and the whole controversy surrounding it helped raise awareness of Pultro and her other work, and consequently gained her a small following for being OneOfUs and for taking the whole Mewtwo controversy with grace.

* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Well, for a given definition of "nice" - some time after the film's release, both the screenwriter and the director locked their Twitter accounts as backlash against Mewtwo rose up.

* MissingTrailerScene: By now it seems to be mandated by Japanese law that ''Pokémon'' movie trailers have at least one. Each of the Japanese trailers had some, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn5BvytJooA the English trailer]] is made up ''entirely'' of these:
** The Genesect Army being created in tubes similar to Mewtwo (as opposed to a more elaborate machine with coffin-like pods) and fleeing immediately upon activation.
** Ash seeing the Red Genesect flying past several buildings, shattering their windows and knocking him on his ass through its speed alone.
** The Genesect Army attacking Pokémon Hills in broad daylight with Ash and co. present.
** The Genesect nest being farther up in the park, and Team Rocket falling on top of it.
** The Genesect Army attacking New Talk City itself, causing large scale destruction as civilians flee and Water-type Pokémon try to quench the ensuing blazes.


* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Red Genesect probably [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 hates turtles a lot]].
** Red Genesect's Japanese voice actor is Creator/KoichiYamadera, who also happened to voice Mew in ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie''. This means it isn't the first time he voiced a character who does battle with Mewtwo.
** In the Japanese version, Douse Drive Genesect aims to be [[Anime/{{Aikatsu}} a top idol!]]


* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: It's not difficult to find online reviews that are under the assumption that this movie's Mewtwo is the same one as the original with an unexplained sex change (though it's not like the movie itself tries to differentiate the two beyond their voices).

* RecycledScript: A lot of Mewtwo's backstory copies that of the original Mewtwo's ([[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie blowing up a lab and (maybe) killing everyone inside]], [[Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns going to a lake filled with indigenous Pokémon]], being distrustful towards humans etc). At the end, Mewtwo even goes to a city like the original Mewtwo did.

** The series also copied [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie the first movie's]] lead by directly tying in with the movie (but replacing Mewtwo with Genesect); though unlike before, the Genesect Army is only seen in a flashback and cryptically mentioned in dialogue, as opposed to Mewtwo's battle with Gary and escape from Giovanni being seen in both the movie and the series.
