"Pokémon: The First Movie" features a villain, Mewtwo, which was created by a group of scientists using the DNA of a rare Pokémon, Mew. Mewtwo does not want to be experimented with and uses his psychic powers to kill the scientists who created him. Mewtwo then learns how to control his powers with the help of Giovanni, the man who funded the experiment, only to learn that he is being experimented again. Mewtwo decides to take revenge on humans by using a deadly storm to destroy life on Earth. Mewtwo will summon Ash Ketchum and other Pokémon trainers for a battle but Mewtwo has another evil plan -- he wants to clone the other Pokémon and use them. Ash needs to stop his plans to save the world.
