Based on the Pokémon craze in the late '90s (although millions of kids and adults still enjoy it well in to the new millennium.) this premiere movie to the Pokémon series was based on a video game. A genetic Pokémon by the name of Mewtwo was cloned from the legendary Mew, but everything seemed to go wrong when Mewtwo started to downspiral into thoughts of his life being worthless.

Those thoughts quickly progressed to thoughts of anger in which Mewtwo attempted to destroy every human and the Pokémon on their side along with Mew whom he considered his enemy. His attempts were thwarted by the main trainer and his best friends/travelers. They went by the name of Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Misty, and Brock along with other trainers. After an epic battle between Pokémon and their clones with weird "tattoos", Mewtwo had an epiphany and relized that their battle was a wrong and that just because they were the clones they could live as equals to the originals. they relized that they do have a purpose in life.

Before the movie was shown there was a short film "Pikachu's Vaction".
