Hey a face

Looks like mewtwo keeps the face after all

posted by Boyers on March 13th, 2018, 3:19 am


well that was anticlimactic

probably not anti-climactic. there might be an issue that we haven't noticed like amnesia.

As far as I'm concerned, this is concerning.
MewTwo isn't the type of 'mon to stay quiet, and suspiciously stale like that.

It somehow warmed and broke my heart at the same time to see Mewtwo get to his feet and Jen's quiet "Thanks". Same thing happened - but more heartbreaking - when *Mewtwo* stumbled and *Jen* had to steady him. What is this place doing to everyone?

@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: I don't think Mewtwo can talk. Jen just said he lost his powers, and though we've seen him talk a little with his physical voice a few comics ago, it didn't seem to work all that well, and I doubt he'd want to do it if he didn't absolutely have to. Stale, to me, just indicates that he's fallen into despair. However, I would agree that having the powerhouse of your team lose all his powers and fall into despair is good cause for concern.

Or heck, maybe he's actually been possessed or that's something masquerading as Mewtwo, but I like to hope for the best :S

  No Jumpscare? Huh.

I was fully expecting to see something horrifying beneath the hands. Ah well, it’s good to see that Mewtwo is (mostly) unharmed and unchanged.

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek the latter scenario is what I'm concerned about. Even when he's hurt, or had lost his powers, he would atleast grunt a little bit, show signs of discomfort, etc.
Being as expressionless as the Gen 7 main characters made me thought that that MewTwo isn't actually MewTwo

Mewtwos been up for 10 seconds and he’s already tired of this crap

Mewtwo is sick of this shit. Jen is just trying to help him

I feel ya, Mewtwo. You already thought they were doomed before going into the darkness but now its like you can't even go out without your powers. I would want to give up too. But hey, he got up and decided to support Jen. That's all that matters... I guess Jen has taken the mantle of team leader for the first time in the entire comic.

Oh, maybe it's like how in Gates to Infinity that Pokemon get weaker the closer they got to the Bittercold but Humans weren't affected.

I love the determination in Jen.

I'm still in deep anticipation, keep it up.

@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril I agree and - on what I think was the previous page - even stated something similar to this theory (MewTwo being influenced by victini due to loss of mental shielding and psychic abilities).

posted by Dark/Light on March 13th, 2018, 4:38 pm

Ya guys..

Mewtwo talks through telepathy.

That's from his psychic powers.

He /cannot/ talk. At least, not without difficulty as we've seen before when he tried to talk vocally.

(And for a Pokémon that relies so heavily on his powers he's probably having to struggle with basic skills.)

posted by IcyLucario on March 13th, 2018, 5:38 pm


I don't think Mewtow can actually speak right now. us always communicated telepathically before and we've seen how good he is at actually talking. I think he just can't talk atm.

Go to say that this is answered climactic, I call BS because this is the opposite of anti climactic. Take a look at his eyes and look if you can see a sole cause at this point I don't see one or at the very least I don't see if I can see 1 that's buried under whatever it is that's keeping him in that dead like state. Seriously though something is wrong with mew 2!

I agree the place has a negative impact on Pokémon, but I don't think there's anything suspicious with Mewtwo.

1) If Mewtwo had been possessed like say by Victini's shadow, Mewtwo could just break it again since he did that last time without psychic powers. Granted this time Mewtwo is weakened physically, but still nothing Orans can't fix if they can find their bags and hopefully have berries in them.

2) Something has transformed into Mewtwo. If it was Ditto, Ditto's eyes would give fake Mewtwo away. Mew might be more plausible since Mew is more experienced at transforming, but Mew is never malicious though. Maybe a prankster, but never malicious.

If something is using illusions like say a Zoroark (not N!) or Victini, Mewtwo should still be able to still see through it even weakened.

But the place our heroes are in, it could make Mew/Victini's Pokémon skills like illusions not work.

3) Due to the nature of how Sulfur makes the comic in MS Paint, there are rules in art design one has to follow for "pixel art". Granted this comic technically isn't done in a pixel art style, but still has to follow design rules like characters depicted must be easily readable. Sometimes that may mean lessening of details if a character is not in the foreground.

One example is Sulfur doesn't like to give most characters detailed eyes, so it kinda leads to a "dead" look that Sulfur tries to offset with facial movements (angry face, shouting, sad face, crying, etc.). The only character that I recall other than Victini and Darkrai having detailed eyes was Guildmaster Wigglytuff. (EDIT - Doh, forgot Purity Forest Celebi!)

Due to the nature of MS Paint, there might not be enough colors to enable characters to have more detailed eyes though.

I DO think something's wrong with MewTwo

And here's why.

I don't think he's a doppelganger or anything. I believe this is MewTwo. But something's wrong. It's not just the dead eyes, it's the fact that he doesn't move until Jen literally pulls on him. He just stands there, stock still and emotionless. He doesn't even acknowledge Jen in the slightest, until physically forced to. Psychic-ly disabled or no, he cares for her and would show that in some way. I think there's something more wrong in his head then just a general lack of abilities. Perhaps, he isn't mentally there at all. I could see Hoopa having pulled his mental/spiritual self out, or something to do with the place they're in. He's acting very similar to what I've seen mentally-gone people to be depicted as. If he was somehow not himself, the fake would be doing a lot better job than this. But that's just my theory.

EDIT: Also, can't believe I forgot this, that would completely explain last page's title of "empty". His body's there. But it doesn't have him in it, somehow.

  Umm what about Jen's healing wish???

Can't Jen just heal Mewtwo?? Seriously though why not

@ILeninVelikyNamPutOzaril: I dunno that I'd say expressionless, per se...the look in the fourth panel suggests more "I have officially doomed us and the world and this is my fault and therefore I have given up hope, but if you want to know which way to go, Jen, that's the way."

But, then again, I am an eternal cock-eyed optimist...
