Wait, durwhat?

Also, if he's saying what I think he's trying to say, he's wrong, calling it right now.

Someone wants power?

Kill it with fire.
Or with mind-melding psychic powers.
Whatever suits your fancy.

I love this comic, not everything is perfect with these characters, and it's hard to believe some of this isn't canon!

I hope N can make things clear with Mewtwo. Ah who am I kidding? It will work out eventually

  Boss Kitty Needs a Hug

I know he's super against them but he needs a hug.

  Poor Communication Skills...

So Mewtwo just wanted N to be his Pokemon Trainer to feel like he's belonged...Only for N to say he won't be a Pokemon Trainer again right in his face, confirming Mewtwo's insecurities...I really felt bad for Mewtwo...

Serously N, a part of Mewtwo wanted you to be his trainer, but it looks like Mewtwo isn't the only one thst has insecurities. Look at N and not wanting to be a trainer. The power must scare him.

Really I just hope these two can reconcile their issues, if anything these two should see each other as brothers, maybe N can use his pokemon zoroark powers to look like Mewtwo and then say they are twin brothers, because they sure act like family.

I feel that there is a misunderstanding about what Mewtwo said and what he actually meant. If looking at it from his perspective, and from his personal experiences, it becomes clear.

He is trying to break through his own mental defense mechanism - (his inability to trust) - by testing N with questions and assessing his response to them. While there is the possibility that he could just read N's mind after hearing such responses, that would make this conversation entirely pointless. (Miracle Eye - either he doesn't know this move, or he chooses not to use it.)

What is really going on here, is this:

Mewtwo knows that N is no longer a trainer, because N told him previously. But he needed to be sure that N wouldn't be tempted by Pokeballs in the future.

Mewtwo doesn't want a trainer, he wants someone he can trust, as both a comrade and a friend. The human part of him would never submit to captivity, but the other side, the pokemon part of him seeks, in biological terms, mutualism with N, because in order to reach the next stage of his evolution - (Mewtwo Y) - and control himself, he needs N as his anker, someone who will not try to manipulate his trust.

Mewtwo is just smart enough to realize that trust is a two way street. It cannot be one sided, both individuals have to be in-sync with the other.

@XD-MADNESS: I never really thought of it like that, but what you said is actually quite interesting.

The way I saw it was, he's back to thinking of himself, at least to some degree, as a weapon, and a very powerful one. And, because he's apparently a secret liberal, he believes that only an evilmonger would want such a powerful weapon. It makes some sense from a personal experience perspective, since after all it was evilmongers that engineered him to use as a weapon, but if he truly believes this, then he's missing several points. First of all, he's grown well beyond being a simple weapon. Second of all, a weapon, even a powerful one, is not necessarily inherently evil. Evil people do tend to use weapons, but that just means the good guys need a way to fight back!

From another angle, though, I sort of get what he's saying, and what you're saying. He wants to make sure he won't be used as a simple weapon again. He wants someone who will actually care about him and treat him with respect, and that's what this is about. Actually rather understandable, now that I think about it.

He wants to feel wanted, but not used.

I just noticed the leaves in N's fur.

I am expecting a heart to heart speech which ends with a glow, showy light and another mega evolution. And epic music in the background.

... yeah probably won't gonna happen.
I am still bitter losing the bet that it is Mega Y instead of X.
