When Mewtwo was dropped from Brawl, it was the moan heard-round-the-world. Don't worry Pokefans, He's back. He hasn't changed too much from Melee, but he can still smash with the best of them.

Snake Codec Message
Snake:"Hey! Isn't that Mewtwo, the Genetic Pokemon?"
Mei Ling:"Yeah, he was originally in Melee, but Lucario replaced him in Brawl.
Snake:"Too bad, I really wanted to see how I'd measure up to him."
Mei Ling:"Well, looks like now's your chance, Snake."
Snake:"Yeah, and I've always wanted to ask him what that tube thing on the back of his neck is."
Mei Ling:"Uhh... I think he might be a little sensitive about that."
Note:The remark about how Snake wanted to see how he measured up to Mewtwo is meant as a reference to the fact that Snake's creators "practically begged" for Snake to be in Melee. Super Smash Bros. Melee was already too far in development for Snake to be included however.
Note:What is that tube thing anyway?
Fighting against Mewtwo
Mewtwo has plenty of countering and disabling attacks, making the Pokemon effective when on the defensive. Use a "Smash-n-Dash" strategy. If you can't use this, keep him close and keep up a steady barrage of quick standard attacks until he's vulnerable to a powerful attack. Mewtwo has very little traction on any stage, so he's relatively easy to push off the stage.
