Mew is one of my favorite Pokémon. It’s an incredibly care free and loving Pokémon; it loves to play and have fun with people, and spreads love and happiness. But it’s also powerful. It was, afterall, used to clone Mewtwo, the strongest Pokémon. It was able to even match Mewtwo…
And made Mewtwo realize that his insecurities were irrelevant and actually made Mewtwo an even better Pokémon in the end.
No one’s insecurities are irrelevant. And to dig on these insecurities is in most cases a shit move to make.
Mewtwo was born into a world that abused him since day one, and to say his insecurities, which caused him to believe all humans are evil, are irrelevant means completely dismissing his character.
Have you watched the subbed version yet?
“It showed Mewtwo that everyone on this earth, regardless of birth, regardless of circumstances, has the capacity to love and care for each other.”
honestly it was more along the lines of "I am allowed to laugh at you and belittle you because you are a copy, therefore you are worth less compared to me, the original.”
Mewtwo is a child with borderline naive beliefs, and Mew is a pretentious old man, this is literally what these two characters are - and it clashes oh so deliciously with their designs.
It was Ash’s sacrifice that made Mewtwo take a second glance at the world, as Ash has shown what Mewtwo believed humans couldn’t show - he cared for pokemon.
And Mew? It learned a thing or two from that as well.
Both Mew and Mewtwo were dumb and stubborn
Yeah, I honestly only half heartedly responded to this because I didn’t really care to get attacked by some random account. But yes, you are right, what I said is bullshit; Mewtwo’s personality and motives are born from his insecurities, and are therefore very relevant.
I think it’s cool that you have a different interpretation of the movie. No, I did not watch the subbed version, but I might one day. But for now, I stand by my original opinion, save the part where I said Mewtwo’s insecurities were irrelevant.
Just as N realizes that the world is not black and white and opinions everywhere matter, I hope that we can both just be fine with each other’s opinions. And with that, I would appreciate it if this was the end of the discussion.
