The Newest Pokémon Looks Startlingly Similar to An Old FavoriteS

Debuting earlier today on Japan's “Pokémon Smash” TV show, the latest pocket monster revealed for Pokémon X and Y bears more than a little resemblance to one of the coolest creatures ever to be stuffed inside a tiny plastic ball. Mewtwo, Brute?

For those of you who don't remember Mewtwo, he was a complete and utter badass. He could kill you with his mind. He looked something like this.

Mewtwo and this new, unnamed Pokémon could be relatives. The main difference is this new guy is (spoiler warning) more aerodynamic, and his tail is on his head.

The Pokémon folks are being coy about this guy, encouraging fans to speculate as to what it all means. Hopefully this won't drive them mad before Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launch in October.

Note - Seeing a lot of comments saying it's not a new Pokémon, but a new form of Mewtwo. As far as the Pokémon is concerned, a new form or evolution of an existing Pokémon is a new Pokémon. Squirtle is a Pokémon. Blastoise is a Pokemon, and not just Squirtle's new form. Now quit it.
