Mewtwo being an artificial pokemon, how can it mega Evolve? Has the mechanics of Mewtwo mega Evolution been explained in the Genesect movie, game or any other canon?

  • being artificial but is still a pokemon isn't it? therefore shouldn't it mega evolve like any other pokemon?

    But if it is artificial, and mega stones are natural, so there shouldn't be a mega stone for Mewtwo (unless it is artificial of course)

    @Gravinco I think that is the answer (though would be fan theory). He requires an artificial mega stone, a mega stone for a different pokemon (mew maybe), a combination of mega stones from those pokemon whose DNA he has, a science experiment (think recreate stone radiation or something) or a special story such as being accepted as a real pokemon by Acceus (or another ultrapowerful pokemon) causing a mega stone to "naturally" form.

  • @kaine the only ingame theory is that the Mega Stone require Irradiation from Xerneas or Yveltal. Charizardite X is also postulated to be artificial, with the Y-forms being the natural ones.

It's only theoretical and the evidence may not me be true to the games, but in the first movie we see Mewtwo create new Pokeballs, that can even capture a Pokeball, and the pokemon once captured going through DNA engineering device to be cloned, so it's not too far to say that Mewtwo is the one who created the Mega Stones for him.

Although the theory might not well combined with the game, I can bring reference to that from the game, once captured in Pokemon X\Y the player is given automatically the Mewtwonite as shown it was where Mewtwo is found, it may imply that Mewtwo already had the Mewtwonite.

Though in the remakes for Sapphire and Ruby the player finds the mega stone for Mewtwo in the Pokemon League buildings, still it's only theory.

(all this support @kaine comment)

What else can you expect? Also the anime was been very inconsistant, which has led to the theory that the anime is completely different from the game.

As for the fundamental laws of Pokemon, a certain Pikachu once KO'd a Rhyhorn (Ground type) with Thunderbolt. That same Pikachu's Thunderbolt failed to destroy a certain Swanna because it was hiding behind an Aqua Ring. Aura Sphere has set a record for having missed.

The most logical expectation might be that Mewtwo is almost a completely humanoid Pokemon, so it doesn't need a trainer to actually set itself into a mega form. Also since it is artificial, maybe a few tweaks or something happened, that made it capable of Mega Evolving itself.

Hope I helped!
