Mewtwo, The Genetic Pokémon. It was created in a lab by a scientist after years of gene splicing and DNA engineering. It's DNA is very close to Mew's. However it's size and stature is different.. Because it's Battling Abilities are at the Ultimate only thinks about defeating it's foes. It tends to remain motionless to conserve energy so it can unleash it's full power in battle. It's said to rest quietly in an undiscovered cave, it was created solely for battles. Although the Scientists managed to create Mewtwo, they couldn't give it a compassionate heart. It was turned vicious due to the experiments and gene splicing it was subjected to.

Strategy Using Mewtwo

Mewtwo is quite simply, one of the strongest legendaries and 00ber Pokemon available in the game. Its stats are all average or above, Special attack and Speed being its greatest stats.
It also has decent HP, which will allow for Recover to be used effectively. Calm mind will boost this Pokemon's sweeping abilities with the increase in special attack and special defense.
The other two moves are there to sweep your opponent, although HP Dark can be replaced with a variety of different special type moves (look in the Pokedex for possible replacements).
Psychic is obviously useful because of the strength it gains from STAB and can be quite powerful after Mewtwo has done a few calm minds.
Mewtwo can also be used as an all out sweeper, without the use of Calm mind, like this: Psychic, Ice beam, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower. Or why not make it a sunny beamer: Sunny day, Solarbeam, Flamethrower, Psychic.
There is plenty of choices to use for Mewtwo, just play around with what it can learn and it adjust it to your team needs. Otherwise, its still an 00ber legendary, so I wouldn't use it.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack & Speed for Mewtwo with any remaining in Special Defense

Strategy Against Mewtwo

Mewtwo' Defenses are equal and a fair bit above Average so a Dark or Bug-type volley should make short work of this Genetic Abomination.
