I've noticed something about Mewtwo when he speaks.

I was watching the English version of the first film and noticed that, other than the moment right before he breaks out of his test tube, Mewtwo never uses words like "don't", "can't" and "I'm", instead preferring the full form.

Contractions are very informal. Mewtwo isn't an informal guy.

This. Mewtwo is meant to be intelligent, and so it appears to be well-versed, and formal with its speech.

Mewtwo is genderless.

Does the Japanese version also has a formal matter of speaking? I saw a transcript of the a translated Japanese script and this version of Mewtwo is much more prone to using contractions.

Then again, it was probably just a rough translation and likely doesn't take into account the formal terms of the Japanese language.
