New mysterious Pokémon revealed for Pokémon X & Y

Pokemon X

Pokémon Smash TV-show announces a new Pokémon that looks oddly similar to Mewtwo.

For all you Pokémon fans out there, last night's Pokémon Smash announced the arrival of a new critter whose appearance seems to be more than a little like old favourite, Mewtwo.

This new Pokémon has been revealed to be strongly related to Mewtwo, who first appeared on our Gameboy screens in Pokémon Red and Blue, but whether it is a new form of Mewtwo or an entirely new Pokémon species is yet unknown and has led to large amounts of speculation from fans.

The Pokémon is set to appear in the new movie, Extreme Speed Genesect: Mewtwo’s Awakening, and a preview is to be released on April 18th that will showcase both Mewtwo and the new Pokémon.

There is still much to learn about this new Pokémon as only small scraps of information have yet surfaced but we’ll make sure to deliver it when it does. More information on X and Y’s new Pokémon and a video featuring this strange new relative of Mewtwo is available on the Pokémon website.

Pokémon X & Y will be the series first forray on the 3DS and represents an effort by Nintendo to breathe new life into its handheld device.
