Birth of Mewtwo

CD Drama

    Originally airing as a radio drama in Japan, this CD features Madam Boss, Miyamoto, and the origins of Mewtwo’s birth, narrated by Giovanni (Sakaki). Back in 2001 when I first bought this CD series it was very difficult to come by, no less listen to online. Thankfully since then access has gotten a lot better, albeit still at a price. Luckily at the time I purchased it I was able to get a phenomenal deal! And something much more precious: the exclusive recordings of the one and only appearance of Madam Boss and Miyamoto.
    Because of the exclusivity of this CD, however, it was my goal to spread the word about it and make it as accessible as possible. Feel free to listen to it as often as you like here! Though, if you love it that much I suggest showing your support by purchasing an original copy on Amazon or Ebay. After all, it’s not the secret it used to be.

Episode 1: The Phantom Mew

GIOVANNI
(Narrating as sounds of falling stars and explosions are heard) Space…never ending space. When did space begin? Nothing is known in space…never ending space. When did space begin? Nothing is known in detail. However, once upon a time, at the ends of space, in the galactic system…in one of the solar galaxies, a creature was born…it evolved…humans were born…and again, another time a new creature was born. More than a hundred species of this new creature was born, and eventually people called these mysterious creatures pocket monsters, or Pokemon for short.
–The Pokemon did not stop at a hundred kinds. As time went on, new Pokemon were found one after the other.

ANNOUNCER #1
Today we, the military government, has intercepted communication waves from a Pokemon discovery ship 1011. About 200 nautical miles away from the Coast of Twin Island, I have met an unidentified Pokemon. I am certain that this is the legendary Dragonair…

GIOVANNI
(Narrating) there are many discoveries which have been left in history…

ANNOUNCER #2
(Communicating through a radio) Oh, I just regret not letting others see this figure! Gyarados…Gyarados is right here in front of my eyes! We’ve heard that it’s an atrocious Pokemon, and as expected it looks very fierce. Oh… it’s coming this way…Augh! Don’t be so serious Gyarados! (Explosion as the Gyarados attacks the Announcer)

GIOVANNI
(Narrating) the discoveries themselves were pretty hard at times. But people did not stop there…

ANNOUNCER #3
A news flash just came in. There was an important announcement from the Pokemon academic circle. Unbelievably, the oldest Pokemon in the world has been discovered. Its name is Kaputops and is said to have retained its original form since two million years ago…

KAPUTOPS
Kapu~tops! Kapu~tops! Kapu~tops! (Sounds of a crowd are heard in the background)

CROWD
Wow! It’s for real!

MAN
Find more Pokemon!

WOMAN
New ones!

GIOVANNI
(Narrating) Humans around the world were in a fever to find rarer and newer Pokemon. And in any era, those who were at the top of the Pokemon craze was our beloved illegal hunting and smuggling Pokemon organization–Team Rocket.
–Now, let me tell you this before hand…my name is Giovanni. However, my true identity is as the current boss of Team Rocket. Right here and now, there is a record of Team Rocket’s most important and critical happening.
–Twenty years ago on an afternoon, this story began with Team Rocket member Miyamoto’s report. Now, the Team Rocket leader at the time was a very beautiful person, very…the previous leader was a very beautiful woman. (Pauses) My mother was such a beautiful mom. Anyway, a report tape was given to my mother.


MIYAMOTO
Boss, please listen to this tape.

MADAM BOSS
All right, Miyamoto. O Miyamoto-chan!–“Making good money these days?”

MIYAMOTO
This is the Rocket Gang password–“Well, not too bad, Boss!” –Anyway, please listen to the tape. (Sounds of Pokemon are heard)

MADAM BOSS
What is this? Hey, will this tape make money?

MIYAMOTO
(Stops tape) No, no. This is not for sale. This recording was taken in a South American jungle with our splendid Team Rocket high sensitivity microphones.

MADAM BOSS
Wait. How much are those microphones?

MIYAMOTO
(fall down in embarrassment) Um, they were 50% off in *Akiba.

MADAM BOSS
You couldn’t bargain a bit more?

MIYAMOTO
Aw, that’s the best I could do. Anyway, what is recorded was this sound.

MADAM BOSS
So what is it?

MIYAMOTO
*If one asks this and that… (Speaks quickly) In a jungle where we can’t catch sight of Pokemon so easily, we record their voices, and through the analysis of that, we can determine the direction they’re in and their location. (Pauses, then a breath) This method is low budget and will save us a bit of money.

MADAM BOSS
I would bring it down a little more those microphones to 60%.

MIYAMOTO
I’m sorry to say, but even at 50% off they’re high sensitivity microphones. Various Pokemon voices had been nicely recorded. Please listen to them. Can you hear anything? (Plays tape with Pokemon voices)

MADAM BOSS
What?

MIYAMOTO
First, we’ll eliminate the sounds of the wind, trees and rivers, in other words nature sounds. (Pushes button)
–Oh my, how interesting. Then, we’ll eliminate the voices of bird and insect Pokemon that are usually in jungles. (Pushes button twice)
–Oh my, how interesting

MADAM BOSS
What a waste. If you’re going to erase it, you didn’t have to record it.

MIYAMOTO
Be quiet and listen. Please listen to it. (Presses button and music is heard)

MADAM BOSS
What’s that?

MIYAMOTO
It’s a kind of “country music” native to that area. A long, long time ago…people say that among the mountain sand-lakes, a phantom Pokemon lived.

MADAM BOSS
Hmm… And, then what?

MIYAMOTO
Yes. Once a year, people say that the phantom Pokemon appears with the rising of the sun.

MADAM BOSS
Hmm… And, then what?

MIYAMOTO
This Pokemon is the world’s rarest, and perhaps is strong, kind, and brave. It’s a Pokemon to be thankful for because it watches over all of us.

MADAM BOSS
Sounds perfect.

MIYAMOTO
People say this folk song is in honor of that Pokemon.

MADAM BOSS
I wonder if it’ll sell if we make a CD out of it…

MIYAMOTO
Making profit is what we’re going to be talking about now. I, Miyamoto-chan, have targeted this phantom Pokemon and have waited for years. (Sniffs) Even when I had my cute beloved little girl, I didn’t leave that place, living alone like a long distance commute.

MADAM BOSS
Children cost so much money, don’t they? My little brat boy at home is horrible!

GIOVANNI
Hmph!

MIYAMOTO
Heh heh…well, before my daughter became a prodigal girl, I have already given her to be a foster child.

MADAM BOSS
That’s good intentions.

MIYAMOTO
Yes, well my life is one: profit; two: economize; no, three or four; and five: Pokemon!

MADAM BOSS
You’re the ideal image of Team Rocket.

MIYAMOTO
Please keep listening. I’ll go on and eliminate even the folksong. (Pushes button which ends the country music)
–Hello? Can you hear it?

MADAM BOSS
Hello? I can’t hear it.

MIYAMOTO
Let’s raise the volume. (Turning the knob)

MEW
(Small cry) Mew…Mew.

MADAM BOSS
Mm, mm? (Leaning forward)

MEW
(Small cry) Mew.

MADAM BOSS
That’s strange.

MIYAMOTO
(Stops recorder) it’s a voice no one has ever recorded. But the sound waves are definitely those of a Pokemon.

MADAM BOSS
That means…

MIYAMOTO
After all, the phantom Pokemon exists! The people of this area call this phantom Pokemon Mew.

MADAM BOSS
Mew?

MIYAMOTO
Mew’s crying went from the South American forest and it disappeared towards the mountains next to it. If we catch it, we’ll make a fortune! Strike while the iron is hot, evil must run! Talks of profit go like the super express bullet trains. So go…! (Miyamoto “runs” to South America)

GIOVANNI
(Narrating) The boss of Team Rocket at the time–in other words, my mother–sent a three-person unit led by Miyamoto, who recorded Mew’s voice to South America. However, it is said that not one of them has ever returned.

MIYAMOTO
(Wind blows in the Andes Mountains) so anyway… (Speaks to radio audience) Hi everyone! I’m Miyamoto-chan! This is the peak of the highest mountain in this South American mountain range. Now please look to your right. It’s right before dawn, and is free~zing cold. It should be summer, but the mountains offer only blizzards. But it’s all right. I, Miyamoto-chan will give my best! (Sighs, while Miyamoto speaks to herself) I wonder how many years it’s been since then though…
–I’ve become separated from the other Team Rocket members, the only person accompanying me is the picture of my daughter whom I left behind as a small child. (Cries) But even if I’m like this, I’m going to wait. I’m going to keep on waiting. Yes, I’m waiting for Mew. Maybe I can see Mew if I wait here at this mountain peak. I believed such a legend. A phantom Pokemon will definitely make money. I’m going to make money, I promise you that!
(Blizzard stops) –Huh? The blizzard, it stopped…Oh…it’s sunrise…The sun is rising! The whole mountain is gleaming silver. It’s just like a mountain of coins! Now, that feels good!
–That’s…

MEW
Mew…

MIYAMOTO
You’re…you’re Mew!

MEW
Mew…

MIYAMOTO
My, you look sooo gentle. So you’re Mew. Oh, hey look…look at this picture. This is my daughter, and her name is Jessie. Isn’t she cute?

MEW
Mew!

MIYAMOTO
Yeah…oh hey, will you let me capture you? Please? Nursery school, kindergarten…child care cost money. (Blizzard starts again) Huh? Where are you going? Huh?! You’re leaving? Hey you! Wait up. I won’t let you do that. Once I hear talk of profits, I’m not going let this chance go! (Mew flies away, as the blizzard returns) Huh? Where are you going?
–(Avalanche sound is heard from a distance) What? This feels bad! What? I’m going to fall? After all?! AUGH! (Avalanche crashes on Miyamoto)

MEW
Mew?

GIOVANNI
Well, it was eighteen years after that incident when the secret of the phantom Pokemon was revealed to us again.

Episode 2: The Birth of Mewtwo

MEW
Mew…Mew…Mew.

GIOVANNI
Twenty years ago…the phantom Pokemon revealed a glimpse of its existence to us. The search for it kept on going, but no matter what, no one knew where it was and the silence had continued.

MIYAMOTO
(In the Andes Mountains as a blizzard is heard) I’m Miyamoto-chan and I’ll never give up! My little daughter is already in grade school after all. That takes money. Where are you Mew?! Come on out! (Blizzard wind blows then stops)

GIOVANNI
(Sounds of digging are heard) Eighteen years after that…I, Giovanni, had succeed my mother to become the boss of Team Rocket. Our underground business concerns all Pokemon. We are the “any” Pokemon Team Rocket. Digging and stealing fossilized Pokemon are no exception. And Team Rocket’s greatest excavation and steal site were in the mountainous area of South America. (Digging stops when a rock chip sound is heard)

EXACAVATOR #1
Whoa…what the devil is that?

GIOVANNI
That was a fossil, less then one centimeter in length.

EXACAVATOR #2
It’s pretty shiny for a fossil.

EXACAVATOR #3
Oh! This is…! (Fossil’s glitter flashes upon excavators)

DR. FUJI
My name is Doctor Fuji. That fossil was secretly taken to my secret laboratory in New Island.

COMPUTER
(Inside New Island laboratory) Analysis result: It is a fossil of an eyebrow of some sort of Pokemon. The Pokemon species is unknown. But when we vocalize what we can from the DNA… (Electronic voice) Mew. Mew. Mew. Mew.

DR. FUJI
Mew? What’s that?

COMPUTER
There is one record in history.

DR. FUJI
And that is…

COMPUTER
It is the voice of a phantom Pokemon said to originate in the jungles of South America… (Electronic voice) Mew… Mew.

DR. FUJI
The phantom Pokemon, Mew?

GIOVANNI
(Appears in the laboratory) Mew hmm? Can you recreate the phantom Mew from the analysis of that fossil?

DR. FUJI
Mr. Giovanni. If I am asked, “Can you do it?” I will answer; I have succeeded with other Pokemon. (Starts pun-like song) If I make a copy of a Pokemon with its genes, then Poke – Poke mon-mon, we have got ourselves two Pokemon.

GIOVANNI
Two times the profit.

DR. FUJI
If we make a copy of Squirtle’s genes…

SQUIRTLE
Squir, Squir, tle, tle.

DR. FUJI
We’ve got two Squirtle.

GIOVANNI
*Making money.

DR. FUJI
If we make a copy with Charmander’s genes…

CHARMANDER
Char, Char, Char, Mander…

DR. FUJI
We’ve got two Charmander.

GIOVANNI
Another profit.

DR. FUJI
We make a copy of Bulbasaur…

BULBASAUR
Bulba, Bulba, Bulbasaur.

DR. FUJI
It’ll increase to two…

GIOVANNI
*Even a seedless watermelon will grow a flower or two.

DR. FUJI
Copy, copy, and copy again.

GIOVANNI
One, two, two becomes four, four to eight, eight times two is sixteen…thirty-two of them. A fortune is made before you know it.

DR. FUJI
If we make a copy with Pikachu’s genes…

PIKACHU
Pi-pika, Pikachu.

DR. FUJI
More and more, it’s *mouse mathematics.

GIOVANNI
*It’s a sparkling, sparkling treasure box.

DR. FUJI
If we make a copy with Meowth’s genes…

MEOWTH
Meowth, Meowth.

DR. FUJI
…And the moon will shine.

GIOVANNI
* I don’t need that. (Ends pun-like song)

DR. FUJI
(Sighs)

GIOVANNI
What’s wrong, Doctor?

DR. FUJI
But I wonder if that goes true for a phantom Pokemon.

GIOVANNI
What do you mean?

DR. FUJI
It is not like there were no failures.

GIOVANNI
We can’t make profits if we’re afraid of failure.

DR. FUJI
At least a copy of a human has not succeeded yet.

GIOVANNI
I don’t need a copy of a human. Increasing humans won’t make money. Pokemon are what makes money. (Laughs) And to add to that, it’s said that the phantom Mew is the rarest Pokemon in the world. If it’s recreated in this laboratory, and is in our possession…even if it’s a copy we’ll make a fortune. Even if it’s a fake we’ll make a fortune (Laughs while he walks away).

DR. FUJI
(Laboratory sounds are heard) It’s not only because I want to make Pokemon copies that I’m continuing this research. (Speaks to Ai) Ai…can you hear me? My precious child. Can you hear my voice? (Sound of bubbles are heard)

AI
(Giggles) Papa! Papa! Why are you papa?

DR. FUJI
Ai, that’s because I’m your papa. Your *mama left me, I can’t stand it anymore. I’m so lonely. Well, that happens a lot but, if that accident…
–(Flashback–sound of car crash and an ambulance siren) Ai, are you all right? Ai! Ai! Come back!

AI
Sorry papa, I can’t go back.

DR. FUJI
No, I want to get you back. I don’t want to be by myself.

AI
(Giggles) it can’t be helped. I’m probably going to become a star.

DR. FUJI
If you’re going to be *Halley’s Comet, you’ll come back.

AI
Not anything like that…

DR. FUJI
Oh…if you’re not coming back…I don’t care if it’s a copy or a fake made from your genes…just don’t leave me alone! (End flashback)

AI
That’s trouble.

DR. FUJI
Yeah, papa’s in trouble too. I mean, human copies can only live in a test tube, and only for four years.

AI
Then don’t do what’s impossible.

DR. FUJI
That’s right, it’s impossible. No matter how many times I try it, four years is the maximum. But I realized something…that Pokemon have an unusual life-force…I know now that Pokemon copies can live longer compared to humans. I want to know the Pokemons’ secret of life. And I want to use that secret to make you live longer.

AI
Really, don’t do what’s impossible. All right? Papa?

DR. FUJI
No, I’ll do the experiment over as many times as I need to…Ai, I’ve finally gotten hold of the eyelash of a phantom Pokemon. Its name is Mew.

AI
Mew?

DR. FUJI
Mew is said to be the world’s rarest Pokemon. According to a legend, it’s even said that it has a life-force to let it live forever. If I copy that Mew, and find out the secret of its life…then maybe you can have that strong life-force as well. Ai, I want you to live as an adult and for you to live with me until you’re an old woman. To be born and to live life is a wonderful thing. That’s why I want you to come back to me Ai.

AI
I see that’s trouble.

DR. FUJI
(A water drop is heard) One month after that…Mewtwo was born, based on the genes taken from Mew’s eyelash.

AI
(Excited) Oh, it’s so cute! That’s Mewtwo…Can I be its mama? Can I be its older sister? I wouldn’t mind living if I have a child like that. Hello Mewtwo.

Episode 3: Mewtwo and Ai

MEWTWO
(In the glass chamber) where is this place? Who am I? Why am I here…?

MEW
(Country music played) Mew.

MEWTWO
Who’s that?

MEW
Mew.

MEWTWO
Mew? Who’s Mew?

MEW
Mew.

MEWTWO
Wait, where’re you going? (By himself) Where is this place? Who am I? Why am I here? (Sounds of other Pokemon are heard)

DR. FUJI
We created Mewtwo from the analysis of the phantom Mew.

GIOVANNI
Is this really the Pokemon created from Mew?

DR. FUJI
The looks and figure may be slightly different, but we have done everything we can. Maybe this Mewtwo has even stronger powers than Mew. It is still sleeping though.

MEWTWO
(In the glass chamber) I’m already awake. But I can’t see anything. I can’t say anything. I can’t feel anything. What am I?

DR. FUJI
Right now, Mewtwo is in a condition like that of a sleeping child. When this Mewtwo awakens we will know what the extents of its powers are.

GIOVANNI
I am looking forward to it. If it really was created from the world’s rarest Pokemon, then… (Laughs)

MEWTWO
Someone is talking about me. But what is he saying? (A water drop is heard while a form of energy appears near Mewtwo)

AI
Those are words…human words…

MEWTWO
Huh? Who are you?

AI
I’m besides you. Right besides you.

MEWTWO
Right besides me?

AI
I’m a human, born just like you.

MEWTWO
A human? Then I must be a human too!

AI
We can talk, so maybe you’re a human. Or maybe I’m a Pokemon.

MEWTWO
A human? A Pokemon? What’s that? Which am I?

AI
It doesn’t matter. We were born in the same way. All of us here were born in the same way.

MEWTWO
All of us?

AI
Can’t you hear? Everyone’s voices…can you tell who they are?

SQUIRTLE COPY
Squirtle, Squirtletwo.

BULBASAUR COPY
Saur, Saurtwo.

CHARMANDER COPY
Mander, Mandertwo.

MEWTWO
All of them..? Two? Two? Why is everyone twos?

AI
We’re all copies. So we’re not number ones, but twos.

MEWTWO
Then I’m a two too?

AI
I’m a two too. My name is Ai. But my real name is Aitwo.

MEWTWO
Aitwo?

AI
Not the real Ai, but Ai number two. No, maybe I’m Aithree.

MEWTWO
Aithree?

AI
Yes! That’s right. (Counts in English) One, two, three, four…If there’s a one, there’s a two. And if there’s a two, next is three! It’s not strange at all. See? (Counts in English) One, two, three, four, five.

MEWTWO
(Counts in English) One, two, three, four, five.

AI
(Counts in Japanese) One, two, three, four, five…numbers, digits…

MEWTWO
(Counts in Japanese) One, two, three, four, five?

AI
Isn’t it great?

MEWTWO
Great?

AI
Right. I don’t care if I’m not real or whether I’m Aitwo, Aithree, or Aifour…I mean, we’re all here! This is really great!

MEWTWO
(Counts in English) One, two, three, four, five, six, seven?

AI
That’s right. And…

AI AND MEWTWO
(Counts in English) Eight, nine (Laughs)…ten! (Laughs)

SQUIRTLE COPY
Squirt, Squirt.

BULBASAUR COPY
Saur, saur, saur.

CHARMANDER COPY
Mander!

PIKACHU COPY
Pika, pika.

SQUIRTLE COPY
Squirt, Squirt.

RESEARCHER
What? What’s all the commotion?

BULBASAUR COPY
Saur, saur, saur.

RESEARCHER
(Computer alarm) Doctor, take a look…please look at your daughter and Mewtwo’s brain waves.

DR. FUJI
T…this is…

COMPUTER
Ai and Mewtwo are communicating between the glass test tubes.

DR. FUJI
What?

MEWTWO
Ai, I…I want to know more…and more!

AI
Yeah! I’ll teach you anything I know.

MEWTWO
Huh? Ai…I can see something. I can feel something. What’s that?

AI
You can feel it? You can see it?

MEWTWO
Yeah.

AI
That’s the sun.

MEWTWO
The sun?

AI
It lights and warms us up. Wa~rm…

MEWTWO
Wa~rm…Ai, what’s that?

AI
It’s the stars and the moon. They’re there to tell us that the night’s not dark and scary. They’re always shining at night.

MEWTWO
Shining…hm…That? Ai… what’s he eating?

AI
That? Hehehe…that’s cake and milk that the researcher is eating.

MEWTWO
Cake? Milk?

AI
Cake is sweet and soft…and usually not adults, but children love it!

MEWTWO
Then you must like it too Ai.

AI
I’ve never had it before. I mean, I can’t eat in here, in the water.

MEWTWO
Hmm…How about milk?

AI
It’s something that newborn babies, not adults, want the most. But… (Giggles) hehehe. I’ve never had that either. I’ve cried before because I wanted it though.

MEWTWO
Why are we born?

AI
Because there’s a papa and a mama.

MEWTWO
Do we have a papa and a mama too?

AI
In our case, um…um…God, I guess.

MEWTWO
God? (Ai giggles) Ai, what are we?

AI
You’re a strange and a very wonderful pocket monster.

MEWTWO
A pocket monster? Then you’re a pocket monster too, Ai?

AI
No, I’m a human. But I’m a copy so…so… (Water drops)

MEWTWO
What’s wrong? What’s wrong Ai?

DR. FUJI
(Explaining to the radio audience) Ai, who was in the cultivation liquid of the glass chamber, was starting to diminish. Cells of a human copy, whose life force is not as strong as the force of a Pokemon, could not live that long.

MEWTWO
Ai, answer me…Ai? What happened?

AI
(Giggles) I think it’s almost time for us to say goodbye. Mewtwo…live, all right? I’m sure living is wonderful.

MEWTWO
Ai…I…I’m in the glass…in the water, but water is flowing from my eyes…what is this?

AI
(Giggles) that’s probably… tears.

MEWTWO
Tears?

AI
Papa said all living things don’t shed tears unless their bodies hurt. And the only ones who shed tears because they’re sad are humans…Mewtwo…

MEWTWO
Huh?

AI
…Thank you for your tears. But Mewtwo, don’t cry. You’re going to live. And I’m sure that living is wonderful.

MEWTWO
Ai, they won’t stop…The tears. What should I do? Ai, answer me…

MIYAMOTO
(Blizzard wind blows in the Andes Mountains) It’s me, Miyamoto! After all, I’m not going to give up on finding the phantom Mew! I mean, my precious daughter is almost ready to take her exams! It takes money! Hurry up and come on out! Come out Mew of the mountains! The grass is greener here! (Sneezes) Ha-choo! (Wind blows)

Episode 4: The World’s Strongest Pokemon

AI
(Pulse sound is heard) You’re going to live. I’m sure living will be wonderful. (Pulse signal goes flat)

COMPUTER
Life signs have stopped.

DR. FUJI
Ai had dissolved away in the glass tube. It was a life where she didn’t step outside of it.

MEWTWO
Ai, it won’t stop…the tears. What should I do? Ai? Answer me…Ai…

DR. FUJI
I don’t mind. As long as we have the analysis of Ai, we can make as many copies as I want. I won’t give up.

MEWTWO
Make them? As many as you want? That’s not right. There’s only one Ai.

DR. FUJI
I can make many copies as long as I have a base.

MEWTWO
There was one Ai who talked to me.

RESEARCHER
(Laboratory computer makes sound) Mewtwo’s brainwaves are quite agitated.

DR. FUJI
It’s not good if we stimulate it right now. Put in a tranquilizer. Put it to sleep.

RESEARCHER
Yes sir. (Mewtwo falls asleep) Tranquilizer injected, the brainwaves are calming down. Brainwaves normal. Mewtwo is asleep.

DR. FUJI
Good. We only have the tips of the fossil of Mew’s eyelashes. (To Researcher) Listen to me, we can’t recreate it over and over like Ai. Please treat it carefully.

MEWTWO
(Thinking to himself) I was asleep for a long time. About Ai and about the Pokemon made here…everything disappeared beyond my sleep. But…I was screaming. Over and over…I was screaming the same thing. Where is this place? Who am I? Who brought me here?

DR. FUJI
And that day arrived…

MEWTWO
Where is this? Who am I? Who brought me here? (With adult voice) Where is this place? Who am I? Who brought me here? (Breaks glass container which contains him)

DR. FUJI
What? (Mewtwo’s power overwhelmed Dr. Fuji)

COMPUTER
Intense emotional vibrations. Source: Mewtwo. It is Mewtwo.

DR. FUJI
Mewtwo has awakened…completely!

RESEARCHER
The experiment is a success!

DR. FUJI
But…this is…

RESEARCHER
Yes, it’s much more powerful than we thought! (Mewtwo completely breaks the glass container)

DR. FUJI
(Narrating) Psychic powers, binding powers, psycho kinesis…there are many Pokemon which have these powers. But the psychic powers emitted by Mewtwo are so strong beyond range.

MEWTWO
What is this power? WHAT AM I?! (Attacks the laboratory)

RESEARCHER
This can’t be…Mewtwo is rapidly developing!

COMPUTER
(Alarm sound is heard) Danger! Will begin automatic security system. Will attack Mewtwo.

DR. FUJI
No!

COMPUTER
(Shoots and kills Mewtwo. Life pulse goes flat) Mewtwo’s life responses have diminished.

DR. FUJI
What have you done?!

RESEARCHER
Please wait! Mewtwo is…

DR. FUJI
What?

COMPUTER
Mewtwo’s life responses are back. Mewtwo is regenerating itself now.

DR. FUJI
Regeneration? Splendid!

MEWTWO
Who’s the one who attacked me?! Who’s the one who tried to eliminate me?!

COMPUTER
Danger. Will begin automatic security system. Will eliminate Mewtwo.

MEWTWO
You?!

COMPUTER
Will attack.

MEWTWO
I won’t let you! (Attacks the laboratory computer)

COMPUTER
(Malfunctioning) Danger. Un…able to…omatic..security sys…tem…annot function… (Computer explodes)

DR. FUJI
Splendid, Mewtwo! I can’t believe those powers.

MEWTWO
Mewtwo…Mewtwo?

DR. FUJI
That’s you. We created you from what’s said to be the rarest Pokemon on Earth.

MEWTWO
Mewtwo…I am the 2nd of Mew.

MEW
Mew.

MEWTWO
But Mew…what is Mew?

MEW
Mew…mew…meeew…

DR. FUJI
(Narrating) I pointed to the portrait of Mew on the wall. (Speaking to Mewtwo) That’s Mew. The rarest Pokemon on earth.

MEWTWO
Mew…is that my parent? My father? My mother?

DR. FUJI
You can call it that, but perhaps not. You were created using its eyelash fossil as a base.

MEWTWO
Who? If not father, nor mother, then it must be God! Are you telling me that God has created me?

DR. FUJI
The only ones who can create life in this world are only God and humans. But…

MEWTWO
But?

DR. FUJI
Humans are probably the only ones who can create life in glass tubes.

MEWTWO
All of you? You humans…made me… a Pokemon…? Me? Who am I? Where is this place? Why was I born? (Starts to attack the laboratory)

DR. FUJI
To make the world’s strongest Pokemon…that was our dream.

MEWTWO
In that case, I’ll show you whether your dream has come true or not. THIS IS MY STRENGTH! (Mewtwo’s powers blow up the New Island laboratory)

DR. FUJI
Narrating) Mewtwo’s powers were stronger than anyone had imagined. The whole research laboratory was blown away.

MEWTWO
(Sounds of waves crashing) This is my strength. I am strong.

MEW
Mew?

MEWTWO
Hm? Where are you, Mew? Am I the strongest in this world, Mew? Am I stronger than even you?

MEW
Mew…mew… mew…

MEWTWO
Mew…where are you going? Are you saying that you won’t even talk to a copy like me? Is that right? Mew, show yourself to me. Show me who’s stronger!

GIOVANNI
(Appears near Mewtwo) It’s true that you may be the rarest and the world’s strongest Pokemon. If you can prove that, I’m sure the real Mew will not leave you alone either.

MEWTWO
Are you saying that Mew might appear if so?

GIOVANNI
Perhaps. But even if you’re the strongest Pokemon, there are stronger creatures.

MEWTWO
Besides Pokemon?

GIOVANNI
Strong humans like me. I’m Giovanni, the boss of Team Rocket. I’m a strong human planning to take over this world.

MEWTWO
Humans, strong? You, strong?

GIOVANNI
Humans created you. Humans have the knowledge and power to create the strongest Pokemon.

MEWTWO
Knowledge and power?

GIOVANNI
If humans and you join forces, then the world is ours!

MEWTWO
The world is ours…

GIOVANNI
But…if we let your powers be, the world will only perish. You’ll have to control your powers.

MEWTWO
Control?

GIOVANNI
You don’t mind burning up the world as you have this laboratory?

MEWTWO
What should I do? (Armor and chains suppress Mewtwo) That…

GIOVANNI
We’ll suppress your powers with these chains and armor. (More placement of armor and chains) When they’re needed, I’ll take these chains and armor off and release your powers.

MEWTWO
What are you trying to make me do?

GIOVANNI
Easy. We just continue what has been done on this planet for many, many years.

MEWTWO
What is that?

GIOVANNI
Fighting, destroying, and plundering…the strong wins. We’ll start by catching Pokemon. Then we’ll know your true strength as well.

MEWTWO
Catching Pokemon?

GIOVANNI
Not copies, real ones.

MEWTWO
And then I want to defeat the real Mew.

GIOVANNI
You’ll be an existence that will surpass even Mew. Then, you’ll be the world’s strongest Pokemon.

MEWTWO
The world’s strongest! (Thinking to himself) Living creatures don’t shed tears. If they do, they’re only tears of pain. I’ll not cry even tears of sadness or pain. Because I must be the world’s strongest…I don’t have sadness nor pain! (Speaks to Giovanni) You…Giovanni right?

GIOVANNI
That’s right. I’m Giovanni. I’m a human, fit to dominate this world.

MEWTWO
How many species of Pokemon are there in this world?

GIOVANNI
Easily over 150.

MEWTWO
I’ll show you my strength!

MIYAMOTO
(Blizzard wind blows in the Andes Mountains) Mew…Mew!…where are you?! After all, I’m Miyamoto-chan. I won’t give up. It’s about time my separated daughter will marry off…I want to let her wear a beautiful wedding gown. Mew! Come out! It’s me, Miyamoto-chan. (Wind blows again)

Episode 5: Mewtwo’s Counter Attack

MEWTWO
(Sound of waves) Giovanni, how many species of Pokemon are there in this world?

GIOVANNI
Easily over 150.

MEWTWO
I’ll show you my strength!

GIOVANNI
Team Rocket’s ultimate weapon, Mewtwo’s power was incredible.
–Mewtwo, I’m going to take off your chains, and your armor! Show the Pokemon your powers! Psychic powers! Bind them! Speed Star! Psycho kinesis! (All Pokemon opponents are defeated)

MEWTWO
I caught them.

GIOVANNI
Monster ball! (Team Rocket members are heard throwing monster balls at Pokemon and capturing them)

MEWTWO
I caught them!

GIOVANNI
(To himself) Mewtwo’s powers are splendid. Mewtwo’s various techniques were incredibly strong. I might be able to take over the world with just this one. (Wave sounds end)

TRAINER
My Pokemon won’t loose! Go, Magmar! (Releases Magmar from its monster ball) Flame throw! (Magmar attacks Mewtwo with its flame attack) You did it!

GIOVANNI
Chuckles) What, you think you’ve beat him with just that? Mewtwo! Regenerate yourself! (Mewtwo regenerates)

TRAINER
What?

GIOVANNI
Mewtwo is invincible. Destruction beam! (Shoots Magmar down) (Chuckles) –Monster ball! (Uses his monster ball to capture Magmar)

TRAINER
Wait! You’re going to take my Pokemon?!

GIOVANNI
I won.

TRAINER
That’s breaking the rules!

GIOVANNI
Remember this…”Breaking the rules” is a compliment to Team Rocket.

TRAINER
Wait! Please!

GIOVANNI
Chase this trainer away. Speed Star! (Mewtwo attacks the trainer)

TRAINER
Wah! You’re going to attack a human?

GIOVANNI
There’s no human nor Pokemon to Mewtwo. He defeats the strong, takes the weak, and will chase away those who interfere. (Attacks people)

CROWD
Augh! (Explosions are heard in the background)

MEWTWO
(Thinking to himself) I’m alive. But if someone asks me if my life is fun… (Chuckles) Defeating strong Pokemon was fun. And it was not so bad picking on humans, those cheating creatures who boast about strength they don’t have…but now, there’s no Pokemon stronger than me. I’m invincible. Team Rocket who follows me only thinks about making money…it’s more than hatred for them. They’re not even worth me spitting on. No… it’s not only Team Rocket…humans after all are creatures who think only of money and greed. Humans are trash that aren’t even worth to be put in garbage cans. Listen to me humans…Strength is what rules the world. Not money…and you Pokemon…not the copies, but the real Pokemon…what’s pitiful is that you Pokemon are even lower beings than humans. Once you’re captured by a human, you listen to anything he says, and wag your tails. I can’t forgive that as a Pokemon. Of course, I’m thinking this way, so perhaps I wasn’t a normal Pokemon from the moment I was born.

MIYAMOTO
(Blizzard wind blows in the Andes Mountains, while Miyamoto breathes hard) I’m not looking for no ordinary Pokemon. What I, Miyamoto, seeks is a phantom Pokemon. Huh? The phantom Pokemon Moltres? The phantom Pokemon Zapados? I’m not *Miyamoto-san da…I’m Miyamoto-chan da! Huh? The phantom Pokemon Articuno? And they expect me to carry around a refrigerator on a one-woman trip?! What’s this? Dratini, Dragonair? Dragonite?! All you strange ones don’t have to come out! If it’s Mew, you should come out! The phantom Pokemon Mew! You’re the only one for me Phantom Mew! Everything about me is Mew! My beloved daughter Jessie…Jessie…Jessie…please understand unreasonable me… (Wind blows)

GIOVANNI
(In a jungle) Take a look Mewtwo. There are millions of wild Pokemon living in this great jungle. There are many ordinary Pokemon here, but there are very rare ones as well. But it’s troublesome to go and find each and every one of them. So I want you to use your strength to get them all at once.

MEWTWO
You want me to fight ordinary Pokemon?

GIOVANNI
That’s what you were born for. The world’s strongest Pokemon, that’s you. If you don’t fight, you’re not worth anything.

MEWTWO
My worth?

GIOVANNI
Now, take off your armor and chains and show your power! (Mewtwo removes armor) Mewtwo, psychic power! Binding power! Speed Star! Psycho kinesis! Show off all of your powers! (Mewtwo attacks) As expected Mewtwo. You’ve gotten one year’s worth of Pokemon.

MEWTWO
What am I doing? Why am I living? Why am I fighting? (Tries to break out of chains)
–Damn, take this armor off!

GIOVANNI
Mewtwo. I can’t do that. It’s too dangerous for humans if I let you go free.

MEWTWO
Are you telling me to fight for all of you? To fight for humans?

GIOVANNI
You’re a Pokemon. Pokemon are living beings who exist to be used by humans.

MEWTWO
I’m no ordinary Pokemon.

GIOVANNI
That’s right. You’re a Pokemon made by humans. If you don’t fight for humans, what other value do you have?

MEWTWO
My value? Who am I? What am I living for? The least I know is that it’s not for humans!! (Removes armor and chains)

GIOVANNI
(Shocked) Ah! The chains! The armor! Are you going to go against me?!

MEWTWO
I was created by humans, but I’m not a human. Since I was a created Pokemon, I’m not even a Pokemon! (Blast destroys the Team Rocket headquarters)

GIOVANNI
(To himself) What I dreaded had happened. The Team Rocket headquarters was destroyed in one second. (Bitter) Soon, no one can control Mewtwo anymore…

MEWTWO
(Mewtwo thinking to himself in New Island as the sound of waves are heard) My strength becomes stronger. I’m the world’s strongest. The one who has the right to rule the world are not humans, it’s me! Who am I? Where is this place? I don’t feel that this world is fun, nor fun…I don’t feel pain either. And obviously I have never cried. That’s right. I’m Mewtwo. I’m going to continue living as Mewtwo.

MEW
Mew, mew.

MEWTWO
Hm? Mew…that’s right…you’re there too…

MEW
Mew!

MEWTWO
(Waves are heard crashing the shore) I’m the strongest in the world. I have the right to rule this world. (Wave sounds stop)

MIYAMOTO
(In the Andes Mountains) I am Miyamoto-chan. I won’t give up. The daughter I left is almost a *hag. I have already forgotten her face? Jessie? There’s no loss in having too much money. Mew! Where are you?! After all, I, Miyamoto-chan will chase after the phantom Pokemon everywhere, until the end of time! I’m going to do it!

GIOVANNI
The whereabouts of Miyamoto after that is unknown.
