Hello, Pojo, this is my translation of
‘Mewtwo Strikes Back’, or in America they call it ‘Pokemon - The First
Movie’. I am unsure about a few things cause it is in Japanese. From
looking at the trailer, they didn’t change much for the American version.
One more thing, you should here the voices in Japanese, they sound so
different. All except for Pika, he sounds the same. Anyway, here it is -
The story begins on
Cinnibar Island, in the lab where Mewtwo is being created. Mew floats bye
and flies off towards a Mountain. Mewtwo opens his eyes to see a bunch of
scientists in Labcoats around. Mewtwo then breaks out of the tube that he
was being created in. He starts talking to the scientists. One of the
scientists points to a carving of Mew, and it makes Mewtwo very mad. He then
starts destroying the lab and the whole island.
passes bye and goes to a burnt up Cinnibar Island. Giniovi steps out of the
chopper and starts talking to Mewtwo. He convinces Mewtwo to come with him
and join Team Rocket. Both of them go to a secret Team Rocket hideout.
Mewtwo gets some special armor put on him. Giniovi then puts Mewtwo through
a few tests and battles. First off is Onix vs. Mewtwo. Onix gets thrown
against the wall, Mewtwo wins. Next is a herd of Tauros. The Tauros get
thrown into the air and Team Rocket members catch them all. Winner is
Mewtwo. Next off is an Alakazam. Gets thrown against the wall just like Onix.
Winner is Mewtwo. Next is a Magniton. It tries to shock Mewtwo, but it’s
electricity gets thrown back at it. Winner is Mewtwo. Next to fight Mewtwo
is a Arcanine and a Nidoking. Both are thrown into the air and are hopeless
(writers note - it looks like Gary owns the Arcanine and Nidoking, but it is
unclear who the person is). Winner is Mewtwo. Giniovi starts making Mewtwo
mad and he destroys Team Rocket’s hideout.
Now we [finally] join Ash,
Misty, and Brock who are having a picnic. Pikachu and Togapi are playing
with each other when a strange guy approaches them. He wants to battle Ash
in a Pokemon battle. Ash sends Bulbasaur, while the guy sends out a Dofyan (i
think that is how you spell it). The Dofyan starts rolling around trying to
crush Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur jumps over him a few times and finally solar
beams the Dofyan for the win. The guy then sends out a Machamp vs. Ash’s
Squirtle. Squirtle avoids Machamp for a while and finally Bubblebeams the
Machamp. Machamp is called back while the guy sends out a Venomoth, Golom,
and a Pinser. Pika takes care of them easily. Meanwhile a Fearow takes
pictures of Ash and his Pokemon. I can’t figure out who the Fearow belongs
to, either Team Rocket or Mewtwo(?). Now Jesse and James look down on Ash,
probably trying to catch Pikachu.
A Dragonite suddenly pops
out of the Island where Mewtwo is waiting. He knocks over Jesse and James
and proceeds to knock over Ash’s picnic table. After landing, he gives Ash
a small chip which is a hologram. A small girl pops out of the hologram and
starts talking to Ash (reminding me of ‘Help me Obi-Wan Kinobi’). A
small piece of paper falls from the Dragonite’s hand and Pikachu picks it
up. It has two checkboxes next to the words ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. Pika
gives the paper to Ash, and he marks ‘Yes’. The Dragonite takes the
paper and flies back to Mewtwo’s Island. Mewtwo starts to make it rain
pretty hard, and Ash and friends must rush to the Pokemon Center. Officer
Jenny starts talking to a crowd about something. Brock notices a missing
poster with a picture of Nurse Joy on it and gets worried. Four trainers run
out to the dock (three others and Ash, of coarse Misty and Brock are
following) and surf (or fly) to Mewtwo’s Island. One is on a Pigeot,
another on a Gyrados and the last on a Dewgong. Ash sees a boat with two
rowers them already. The rowers where very set on giving Ash a ride to
wherever they were going. Ash goes, and a huge capsizes the boat. It also
reveals that the people in the boat were Jesse and James (big surprise).
Misty calls Staryu to save her and Brock, and Ash is on Squirtle. They go on
for a while and the weather suddenly clears up.
They go to the island to
be met my the same girl that was in the hologram. They lead Ash, Misty, and
Brock up some stairs to a huge room with a table in the middle. The other
three trainers are there eating. Their pokemon are all out of their
pokeballs and they are showing them off to each other. Team Rocket sneaks in
after Ash to find them selves in a cloning facility. Suddenly, a huge blue
light shoots down and Mewtwo starts floating down into the room where all
the trainers are. One of the trainers makes Mewtwo mad, and he gets thrown
into the water where his water pokemon are hanging out. Now the trainer
orders his Gyrados to attack Mewtwo using Hyper Beam. The Hyper Beam is
reflected back at Gyrados, and he is thrown against the wall and into the
water. Mewtwo then waves his hand and the girl starts to walk away and fall
down. Luckily, Brock is there to catch her. Her hat falls off and it reveals
that it is Nurse Joy. Meanwhile, up where Team Rocket starts wondering
around the cloning facility and Jesse sits on a button. The button activates
a screen that starts showing a bunch of weird pictures and talking in
Japanese. A bunch of electronic arms come down and grab Meowth. They shove
him on a conveyor belt and more arms grab him. James and Jesse pull him out,
but a few of his hairs are missing. The hairs go through the machine, and a
clone of Meowth appears in a tube. Then Team Rocket notices three other
clones there. Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise. Ok, back to Mewtwo.
Pikachu says that Mewtwo is outnumbered, and Pikachu gets thrown Ash and
they go flying. Then another trainer gets mad and tells his Rhyhorn to
attack. Rhyhorn charges and just floats in the air as he gets near Mewtwo.
Rhyhorn goes flying back and destroys the table with all the food on it.
Mewtwo then activates the
Blastoise, Charizard, and Venusaur clones and they walk down towards Mewtwo.
As the three clones appear, Mewtwo reveals a huge stadium and states that
the originals must fight the copies. By the way, the other trainers have the
Blastoise and Venusaur, not Ash. Ash calls out Charizard. Charizard notices
Mewtwo and attacks. Mewtwo blocks and stops the fire with some water. Now
they are all in the stadium and the Venusaurs are getting ready to fight.
The original Venusaur uses Razor Leaf and the clone blocks with Vine Whip.
Then the clone throws the original Venusaur against the wall, clone wins.
Next are the Blastoises. The original uses Hydro Pump and the clone blocks
with Withdraw. The original gets thrown against the wall, clone wins. Now
the Charizards. Ash’s flies into the air and flamethrowers the clone, but
the clone avoids just in time. It continues like this for a while, but
finally the clone slams Ash’s into the ground, clone wins. Now three
Masterballs appear and catch Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur.
A whole lot of Masterballs
appear now and chase the rest of their pokemon. The pokemon are blocking the
balls the best they can, but eventually all but three get caught. Bulbasaur,
Squirtle, and Pika. Ash returns Squirtle and Bulbasaur to their Pokeballs,
but the Masterballs just catch the Pokeballs themselves. Ash starts blocking
the balls from catching Pikachu, and tells Pika to run up some stairs. Pika
is running, but the Masterballs catch up, and Ash tell Pikachu to keep using
Thundershock to stop the balls. Ash starts chasing Pika up the stairs, but
he is way behind. Pika falls off the stairs and is falling a very long way.
Pika was caught by a ball, but Ash jumped off and caught the Master Ball.
Ash fell into the water and he let go of the Masterball. The ball went down
a tube with all the other balls, and Ash jumped into it just before the tube
Well, I’ve gone through a little more than
half the movie, you will just have to wait for the rest. My name is Alex
