Uh, no. No, thinking that way is overreacting just a touch. Particularly since what you've described isn't what's taking place at all.
Someone doing as I described would be trolling. Nothing more. Just like someone making fake stuff and propagating it in the first place would be doing.
I still can't believe you guys are actually using this as an excuse for proving that it's fake. serebii said this thousands of times, even on this thread because this picture has been posted before.

If that is Mewtwo's new form, then I'll cry. Now hes just reminding me of Dragon Ball Z.

Pokemon that NEED evo's in X and Y
I think Magikarp should be in the Uber tier.
I wish they would bring back contests. They gave me something to do besides battling. And it was entertaining.
Mewtwo is my second favorite Pokemon of all time, and for the first time in the Pokemon series I am really disappointed in this new form (if it is in fact real). There are some Pokemon that I don't care for, but this is the first evolution of a Pokemon that I thought looks awful. Mewtwo is such an awesome looking Pokemon and why ruin that with that terrible evolution? I'm just disappointed
I'm not sure what to make out of this mewtwo form. The thing that's interesting about this is how easily it could be fake, but it actually looks quite real. Fakemon creators all over the web make mewtwo forms/mewthrees drastically overpowered with 80 cannons coming out of it tail, this one is able to hold back on features and seem like it could exist in Gen.1.
In addition, while we have few pokemon to go off of, it seems to me the designers have taken the heavy criticism on the "ridiculousness" of the Gen.5 Pokemon to heart, and are holding back and making more proportionate and logical designs, which I feel this is under.
So my point being this is either the work of a very calculating designer, or is real. Obviously my thoughts don't solve the real/fake dilemma at all, but still, I find it interesting.
I found an Artist rendition of what the full form may look like:
In this perspective, it looks pretty cool.
Rule of thumb: if you think something - anything - was changed or otherwise affected by anything the fans did short of them not actually buying the games (which hasn't happened), remind yourself it wasn't and determine another hypothesis.
[QUOTE=your boss;15876282](If real), How did they ruin Mewtwo? The forme is seperate from the original design, the Mewtwo we know as a child hasn't nor will be canned at all. You still have your lovely Psychic type badass, all it has is an addition to its general self (can't find the right words so don't flame me on this sentence). It's like complaining that Victreebel gets a new move that hampers it or Eevee obtaining a new evolution.
I see what you're saying; however, if they make the new form stronger than the original Mewtwo is kind of obsolete. Why would you want to use the original if it is weaker, especially in competitive game play? It doesn't even seem that creative of a design in my personal opinion, as all they did was take the tail and put it on his head (it looks like a Majin Buu rip off). I don't know they could have gave Mewtwo a more elagent design if they were going to do it.
But when I see the poster, his head looks WAY too big for his body, almost chibi like. Plus I can't comprehend WHAT I see in the poster lol Is the tail connected to the head? Is it that super long thing?
Im open to a new Mewtwo form, but it should have some class. This rendition....I'm fine with.

Personally i think its real and i have a theory. Now with Gen 6 hinting at chromosomes with x and y, and Mewtwo being the genetic pokemon while Deoxys is the DNA pokemon, and with fusions introduced with kyurem i think Newtwo is a fusion of Mewtwo and Deoxys. Look at its design alongside Speed Deoxys.

I'm currently looking for a with its Hidden Ability, Volt Absorb. If you'll trade one, or you have a Safari, please PM me!
I've finished my Pokédex, so feel free to get in touch if you need something for yours (I can't trade many legendaries, but I do have multiple of a few that I might trade for shinies).
Not too bad to be honest, but still nowhere near as good as the original. I still think that this whole ''new form'' is completely fake.

Hell, I've seen people mention the "ridiculousness"(note that I loved 5th gen, this isn't my opinion) on Sugimori's Twitter account. This isn't the 1990's anymore, the internet and twitter are rampant. And furthermore, a better rule of thumb if you ask me, is ask yourself what a designers JOB is? To make something appealing to their audience.
(on a side note, Sugimori himself said in a online nintendo power interview with Iwata, that the designs for 5th gen were pretty edgy for his tastes. So to me, its only logical he'd want to hold back a bit)
