N is two steps short of giving Mewtwo a carebear stare right now.

Also, I wonder what Mewtwo's life expectancy would be? He's an experiment, so there's really nothing to go on.

Mewtwo having a midlife crisis? Now I've seen everything.

Also, it's hard to carry the whole team when that requires being in multiple locations doing multiple tasks at once. Mewtwo is getting a crash course in, bascially, what it's like to be a bottom level grunt in a burger joint - only instead of having an unreasonable, obnoxious boss jumping down his throat all the time, it's his own unreasonable expectations of himself.

The thing of it is, sometimes it's not a matter of strength - he's proven many times over that he has more than his share of that - but of bandwidth. Continuing the fast food analogy, it's entirely possible to have the physical strength to pull multiple (heavy) cases of meat products off the truck that just rolled in, and also to grab (heavy) cases of fries out of a walk-in freezer to fill the kitchen freezer, but if your bosses expect you to do both at the same time, well they can go get dunked on because that's just not happenin'. In fact, true multitasking is almost never possible; when someone is "multitasking", they're usually flipping back and forth constantly between different tasks, which is profoundly frustrating and saves little if any time. The current consensus among brain scientists is that doing either one for any length of time is generally inadvisable.

That, indeed, is the whole purpose of having a team - the more "indivisible units" of manpower you have involved in an operation, the more flexible said operation can be and the more it can accomplish at once.

Are they going to have the - my life perspective was changed by a ten year old kid and his pikachu - talk. I mean, they've both met him, I don't see how things have gone this far without at least a name drop or something lol.

Out of my head Theory

From the character interview, we know that this Mewtwo is from the anime world of Pokemon. So we could see a time when N mentions Ash if he recognizes a description from Mewtwo if he brings him up. I don't know why I'm talking about this, someone just mentioned Ash & it popped up in my head.

I really hope Mewtwo doesn't say yes than immediately sneak off to find Jen and company.

Mewtwo *reeeeeally* doesn't like the name "Boss Kitty", does he?

This page here is so bittersweet, I love it.

I wonder when Mewtwo will tell N that he *does* trust him, that's what triggered his Mega Evolution. Maybe next page....

@PJSam: Great, as if I didn't have enough to worry about :P I don't *think* Mewtwo is that type, but I don't *know*...

Given N is a Zoroark, eventually he can look human again once he figures out how to use his illusion abilities.

I would be on the whole N was a pokemon this whole time, but Mewtwo could "feel" him before and can't now.

That being said I am in the camp of Humans are also a type of Pokemon. N's ability to understand Pokemon speak Pokemon is very rare. There are 5 others with Similar abilities that Bulbapedia notes.

Anabel(Multiple generations of games and Anime Talking a Good Game! and Second Time's the Charm!)

Sheena (Arceus and the Jewel of Life)

Damos (Arceus and the Jewel of Life)

Simon (The Poké Spokesman (Japanese: ポケモンとはなせます!?ポケモンのことばポケモンのきもち! You Can Speak with Pokémon!? The Words and Feelings of Pokémon! Episode 195)

Yellow (Pokemon Adventures Manga)

Why does N have to look hot in whatever form he takes?

We all Have burdens we must carry.

The Trick is Mewtwo is to know when you need the help. Because the more you stack on you the more you are going to brake your back on it. We all come to a point where we need help, some of us sooner then others, and what happened between you and Gio was bad, but you can't let that color your vision, if anything learn from it yes, but don't let it define you or you may be so stuck in the past that you don't see the present and miss the future entirely.

And I have now Idea if that sounded good or meant anything a this point.

Mewtwo is not experiment, he's a clone with some physical alterations, but still a Pokemon. As such, he has the same life expectancy as any other Pokemon (which is measured in centuries).
