In honor of our 151st episode, we’re revisiting our childhoods this week watching Pokemon: The First Movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back! Mewtwo is a new Pokemon engineered by Team Rocket scientists, cloned from a fossil of the ancient Mew. He awakens to incredible psychic power and an existential crisis — why was he made? what is his purpose? how does he fit into the world as a clone? He invites several trainers to his fortress, including Ash and friends, and attempts to clone their Pokemon for a tournament to prove the strength and value of clones and why they should inherit the world.
