- MewTwo vs Mew
- Prepare for the greatest match ever!
- Witness the rarest pokémon of all in their first movie!
- Who am I? Where am I?
- Training Is Over.
- You have been summoned to the ultimate Pokemon showdown!
- The Pokemon match of all time is here.
- Scientist: We dreamed of creating the world's most powerful Pokemon... [Mewtwo prepares to fire] Scientist: ... and we succeeded.
Mewtwo: The human sacrificed himself, to save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
Mewtwo: Human and Pokemon can *NEVER* be friends.
James: Who's *that* Pokémon?
Mewtwo: Behold my powers! I am the most powerful Pokémon in the world!
- The theme song is not the same tune as the TV show, but it contains all the same words.
As Meowth gets sucked into a tube, James says "Who's That Pokemon?", a reference to the commercial-break game of the same name on the TV show.
Briefly held the record for highest-grossing opening for an animated film. The record was shattered two weeks later by Toy Story 2 (1999).
The American version didn't include a section called "Origin of Mewtwo" for it's theatrical run due to its dark nature.
The American edit of the film contains CGI effects that weren't included in the Japanese cut. These include realistic-looking clouds.
