Anime / Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution

Go To
It's been 20 years since The First Movie, and now, Mewtwo's original movie has evolved to the next stage.

Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution is the twenty-second Pokémon movie, released on July 12th, 2019 in Japan.

It is a 3D remake of the original Mewtwo Strikes Back, in which Ash, Misty and Brock get caught up in Mewtwo's plan to destroy humanity and the Pokémon they co-inhabit the world with and replace them with his superior clones.


  • All-CGI Cartoon: The entire film is made in CGI, which is a first for the anime movies.
  • Call-Forward: Wingull appears in the credits as the only post-Generation II Pokémon added to the movie.
  • Mythology Gag: The title for the movie is rendered exactly the same way as the Japanese title for Mewtwo Strikes Back was, only with "Evolution" added.
  • Stock Subtitle: "Evolution".
  • The Stinger: After the credits, we see Mewtwo and the clones fly towards Mount Quena...
