|Appears in||Super Smash Bros. (Wii U and 3DS)|
|Debut||Pokémon Red and Green (1996)|
Mewtwo will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4 as a downloadable character in spring 2015. It will be the second cut veteran to return for Super Smash Bros. 4, after Dr. Mario. Mewtwo will be free to download if a player owns both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game; whether Mewtwo can be bought separately is currently unknown. Mewtwo was confirmed to be a playable character during a Nintendo Direct on October 23, 2014. Its developmental graphic design was shown for both the Wii U and 3DS versions and, like Charizard and Lucario, its proportions more closely resemble its apperance in the main Pokémon games, with a smaller head, lighter skin and more bulbous fingers. Its release announcement can be seen here. Before Mewtwo was confirmed to be a playable character, Sakurai had said that he was considering making Mewtwo playable. On a previous leak, there was a "?" on Mewtwo's spot, meaning it could be a hint Mewtwo was going to be playable in the game. It is unknown if Mewtwo will retain his old moveset.
