Today is February 6th, which marks a special occasion for fans of the original Pokemon games. No, it’s not the anniversary of Pokemon Red and Green, but it does mark the birthday of the Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo! In the original Game Boy game, Mewtwo was cloned from the DNA of Mew in a lab on Cinnabar Island. By the time the player arrives, the lab is in ruins, but there are several journal entries that can be found regarding Mewtwo’s creation. One entry reveals that February 6th is Mewtwo’s birthday, and fans across social media are celebrating the Psychic-type!
Even as the Pokedex has reached over 1000, Mewtwo has remained one of the franchise’s most beloved Pokemon. While a big part of that is owed to the main Pokemon games, the character’s role in various media has also helped. Pokemon: The First Movie gave the character a tragic backstory, as well as one of the most iconic quotes in the history of the franchise. Given all of that, it’s easy to see why Mewtwo continues to find such a passionate following after all these years.
