*** Josses. You guys really hate the writers, don't you? While the marketing driven higher-ups are greedy corporate types, the writers and animators love these characters, as can be seen by the fanart and fan animations on their personal twitters... anyway, the writers confirmed they simply found old Mewtwo untouchable, the late chief writer Takeshi Shudo's legacy, and didn't want to tamper with it, so Newtwo was born. Old Mewtwo wasn't erased, still shown in openings and given nods in this movie. It's possibly the other Mewtwo shown in the other Mega form in the opening segment to one of The Strongest Mega Evolution specials too as those take place in the same universe as the main series and intertwine in XYZ + a reference to Ash in the first Act too.

too.
* Half confirmed (the what, not the why). Mewtwo was indeed planned to be the original. However, rather than merchandising or immediate capitalism, the cause for the change was legal issues with Takeshi Shudo's estate.

[[WMG: The Newtwo's creation was and experimentation on her were mostly performed for testing grounds with Trainer-free Mega Evolution.]]
The final experiment, which appears to be electrocution, was, in fact, attempt to artificially induce Mega Evolution. As we all know, Mega Evolution, normally, [[PainfulTransformation is not a pleasant thing already,]] hence the pain and following destructive meltdown. However, since she later showed being capable of performing Mega-Evo all on her own, this project was successful, showing, that Mega-Evo with no need for bonds or Mega Stone is indeed possible. [[Anime/PokemonVolcanionAndTheMechanicalMarvel And then a very similar thing showed up later, capable of Mega Evolving Pokemon without any need in bonds en masse and ensuring their complete obedience, while, apparently, being even more painful, than normal Mega-Evo...]] Looks like Alva was either funding this project or even personally participated in it!

Think about it: Mewtwo used his psychic powers to wipe Giovanni and pal's memory of his and Mt Quena's existence, but there's nothing saying that he wiped out whatever records of him are left. Even though a lot of what's known about him was blown apart when he escaped, Giovanni probably has lots of super-secure files on Mewtwo. Giovanni and his Executives are the only ones who had files on Mewtwo. While Giovanni can't remember the password and place, the importance of the Mewtwo project(to the point that his own mother was part of it) would leave a colossal, mutant feline-shaped hole in the records. Having scientists brilliant enough to make Mewtwo in the first place find out what's going on, Giovanni rediscovered Mewtwo's existence. The reason Giovanni isn't going after Mewtwo again is because he's GenreSavvy to wait it out and ensure Mewtwo is in his command, especially now that he can't use his [[MoralityPet morality clones]] against Mewtwo. Unknown to Giovanni, Team Plasma managed to hijack this information and use it to create the Mewtwo in the 16th movie.

[[WMG: This Mewtwo is a child of the original, one way or another.]]
Either this Mewtwo was cloned from the original or its backstory was used for the sake of brevity. While it's possible that some scientists performed the same experiment to make a second Mewtwo, it seems unlikely unless there was already more than one made when the first one escaped and killed the science team that made him. More likely, the original was cloned; either by himself using the same or similar equipment that was used on New Island, or by the scientists that created him to begin with once the initial experiment was put into incubation.

Or, another possibility is that, being a modified clone of Mew, he was capable of breeding with the one seen in the two previous movies Mewtwo was featured in. While Legendaries can't reproduce in the games, this could be a result of a basic incompatability with other Pokémon - in the original games, Mew is described as giving birth to Mewtwo while all later games show Pokémon breeding always resulting in eggs. It's also established that some Legendaries are not unique or immortal, like Latias and Latios. They have to have children ''somehow''.

[[WMG: This Mewtwo was based on the old one in-universe.]]
By the end of "Mewtwo Returns", Mewtwo is done with hiding and decides to live in a New York-like town. It's not out of left field that people learned about Mewtwo's existence, and Newtwo's creators tried to put two and two together. While [[GoneHorriblyRight not knowing the whole story]], they figured from appearance this strange Pokemon was related to Mew somehow, and it would work as a physical template for their Mew clone. They didn't know what went down, but since this man-made Pokemon clearly wasn't loyal to humans figured they needed to make Newtwo more passive to ensure loyalty. Newtwo is a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute in-universe, based on the speculation of what the original one is like. The reason why Newtwo can Mega Evolve/goes Mewtwo Y instead of Mewtwo X is because she still has a different genetic code, just one similar enough to look the same. Also, it might have been their attempt to create a superior version(though since old Mewtwo was a PhysicalGod, [[SuperPrototype this appears to have been a failure.]])


[[WMG: The original Mewtwo was killed by a [[MegatonPunch Falcon Punch]] from [[SelfDemonstrating/CaptainFalcon Captain]] [[MemeticBadass Falcon]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee''.]]

Notice how the event Mewtwo associated with this movie has Hurricane, a move most likely based on the first movie rather than this one. It's quite likely that the writers, looking to shove as much merchandise as possible, decided that Genesect was enough for little boys and that there weren't enough cute girly Pokémon in the movie to appeal to little girls, so they decided to make Mewtwo into one. And as for why she has nothing to do with the old Mewtwo, [[ViewersAreMorons it's all part]] [[AnimationAgeGhetto of the same package]].

* Excuse me, but why does everyone miss Ash's line?
->Ash: Hold on, you're-
->Newtwo: I am Mewtwo.
He clearly recognizes Newtwo, but she cuts him off. Obviously, he realized she isn't the same one he knows.

[[WMG: The scientists made Mewtwotwo to help them fight Zygarde.]]
Notice the scientists' hexagon motif? Now, recall what other Pokemon has that shape as a defining feature. In particular, a Pokemon who lives in the mountains. The kind of mountain a copy of a copy could flee to. And given certain new character info, the reason Mewtwotwo had been bio-engineered to Mega Evolve without a Mega Stone was to better deal with Zygarde's Perfect forme.


[[WMG: In the event that PUSA is [[ScrewedBytheLawyers unable to/not allowed to outright retcon Mewtwotwo into Mewtwo]], or there isn't time to check the script and lipsync, they'll [[AuthorsSavingThrow at least try to connect the two felines' origins.]]]]
As for a possible way to do so...the movie could say that one of the scientists on the expedition to the ruins in [[PokemonTheFirstMovie the first movie]] was on the other scientist's payroll and snipped a bit of Mew's eyelash off when no-one was looking so no-one would realize something was up. OR, they could just have the scientists loudly discuss the source of Mewtwotwo's origins and their motives during [[spoiler: her flashback]].
* Nope, they don't do that in the dub.

[[WMG: There are only two Mewtwos, one with a feminine personality and one a masculine personality.]]
The first movie has a Mewtwo that is extremely aggressive to any human and anything that sides with them, only wanting to ally and rule over its clone Pokemon. This Mewtwo also had a very masculine persona and male voice. The Mewtwo from ''Legend Awakened'' is a more benevolent Pokemon, only distrusting humans who had tortured it in a lab, but it is fine with Pokemon.

Also, Mega Mewtwo Y looks more feminine while X looks more macho...
