It is not known to evolve to or from any other Pokémon. However, it does have an alternate form with an unknown name and the method by which it changes forms is unknown.
It is among the most well-known Pokémon, being the star of the first movie and, in Generation I, the most powerful Pokémon in regards to its total base stats. It is a member of the Mew duo along with Mew.
Mewtwo is one of the first Pokémon created by science. The scientists who created it dreamed of creating the world's strongest Pokémon. It is widely considered unique, because only one was genetically created. However, this has yet to be fully confirmed.
Mewtwo is a creature with a humanoid posture, but has a few feline features. Mewtwo's body is grayish-purple with a purple underside and a long, purple tail. Mewtwo has three circular digits on each appendage. It has an opposible toe on the inside of each foot, like many real-world primates, as well as two others that face forward. It has purple eyes (sometimes blue when attacking) and two short ears.
One of Mewtwo's most notable features is the tube extending from the back of its skull to its spine. It is most likely a secondary spinal cord, or a system of nerves, allowing for an increased amount of blood and sensory transmission to the brain, heightening its psychic powers.
