D) A Mewtwo forme.
Now, if you excuse me, im gonna jump off a skyscrapper...LOL, just kidding
Now, im going to give my personal thoughts on this matter.
Please read it carefully and to the final sentence, to avoid missconceptions:
I am not mad about an alternate forme for Mewtwo. A well executed alternate forme would be awesome.
The problem,again, lies within the design itself: It doesn't improve, or equals, on Mewtwo's design. It looks kinda rushed,and not too well thought/related to him. Overall, the design looks cool, but its not enough "Mewtwo-ish"
There are MUCH better designs, made by the fanbase, whether is here on DA, or in any other website, than by the official creators themselves.
This is nothing new, of course. It has happened with other Pokemon designs before.
I like to call this, the "involution" factor.
A great example for this, is Lickitung's "evolution": Not only it doesn't improve on Lickitung, but rather, sends it several steps down,making it look like a pre-evolution, rather than an evolved, adapted being. Also, the name doesn't help at all
(Lickylicky??, REALLY?? Couldn't you come up with something else? Imagine if Mewtwo would've been called "Mewmew" instead...
I mean, How hard could it be,to imagine Lickitung's evolution as a bigger salamander, bipedal, or cuadruped,with a huge, spiky tongue? (Normal/Dragon, maybe?) Or even a fat chameleon, badass styled design?
Instead, they went with a rushed,poorly thought, "fairy styled" design. Such is the fate for most of the "normal" typed Pokemons, right?
Now,the fact that it has happened to such an iconic Pokemon, Its not a good sign. Sure! It's just an alternate form, not an evolution. I shouldn't be concerned at all Right?...Right?
Well...The problem is this:
Everything in this movie previews are hinting, that Mewtwo could stay on this forme FOREVER in the anime."Mewtwo's AWAKENING""Mewtwo has AWAKENED and become its NEW SHAPE"
This is THE BIGGEST concern.
Mewtwo changing forever into THAT? Seriously?
I know for a fact, that it is almost impossible to improve on Mewtwo's perfect design (Im also having trouble trying to think a more powerful forme for him...a "Mewthree" of some sort.)
But C'mon! You have an ENTIRE TEAM of professional game designers! If you're going to change such an iconic Pokemon forever, at least program an important meeting, of all your artists, and together, push yourself to IMPROVE on the design!
You should be able to surpass the petty designs of us, mere fanboys!
Instead, this probably permanent forme, looks like a poorly designed mewthree.
It is as if they are trying to make the newest fanbase,to mock on Mewtwo.
I had my suspicions on this: Have you noticed how weird the latest Mewtwo sprites were looking on the games lately? How dwarfed,skinny and fluffy he was looking? Compare them all here: [link]
How far they went from the badass design from Red/Blue, and Pokemon Stadium![link]
I can see it coming now: In the movie, they will make him look all Godly, and more powerful, in this new forme,and most kids,and even fans of the first hour, will be "bought" into this design this way. Such is the way of this business, to sell its product
Aw well. Life goes on, I guess
Did this sound a lot like im angry? Because im really not THAAAAT concerned. (Perhaps I should've made a Youtube video instead?).
What can I say? Im just a passional person. I love to write oppinions with CAPS LOCKED words, and several !!!! to give them intensity.
Im an adult. Long gone are the days of childish reactions to fictional stuff.
I just gave my oppinion on why I dont like this change.That's all.
Hopefully, the programmers will still let you choose which forme you wanna keep in the new games.
