@Lord Vok Mewtwo's not a girl, it's genderless. A female voice is just as valid as a male one.

@NCZ Except when they did previous movies with a male voice. And considering he's a legendary, there can only be ONE Mewtwo and not multiple.

Well firstly it's important to note the difference between "sex" and "gender". Gender is a social, not biological concept, whereas "sex" (as well as voice) is biological.

The "identity" of one's voice is not necessarily 100% in line with the gender they identify as. Mewtwo cannot breed, so it is a biologically asexual being, but it also does not identify itself as any gender.

From a biological perspective there is no such thing as a "sex-less" human voice. Mewtwo's voice being what a human identifies as "male" or "female" is just due to the limitations of being a fictional, non-human character whose voice is provided by a real-life human. Having one Mewtwo with a "male" voice and another with a "female" voice is just a means of conveying to the audience that it is an asexual being with no gender identity.

Canonically there are multiple versions of several Legendaries in the Pokemon anime. The Mewtwo seen in the XY era is not the same individual as the one seen in the Kanto era. So it makes more sense for them to have different voices.

Make sense?

@NCZ I get what you mean. But how does this one remember Ash if we have just established that is a different one then before?

I actually thought Dirk was Spike Spencer. But hey, glad to know Sgt. Sagara got a shot at Pokemon, too. =)

What on Earth is this? And why does Mewtwo's design look off to me?

@Torak It's a different Mewtwo.

@Galactic_Cyrus - Ahh. As in like a different species of Mewtwo? I always thought there was only one species in the anime continuity
(Can't believe I'm still a nerd at Pokemon >_

@Torak This one's apparently an AU Mewtwo than the one from before, seeing as it can Mega Evolve, and ORAS tells us that Mega Evolution is an AU thing.

@Galactic_Cyrus - Make sense. I just thought Mewtwo's snout looked a little shorter, revealing its mouth a little better. It looked a little weird at first to me :3

@Torak The eyes are different too.
