Why does Mewtwo have a feminine voice in the new movie trailer?

Mewtwo isn't actually male.

The voice is clearly different from the Mewtwo way back then.

Either:

They gave him a new voice actor(gender unknown be damned).

or

This isn't the same Mewtwo. And I heavily doubt THAT reading scans of the movie manga where Ash is talking to Cilian about how Mewtwo doesn't like humans much.

The woman is Mewtwo's voice actress. Her name is Reiko Takashima.

Remember that Mewtwo doesn't talk. Mewtwo uses telepathy to speak so any major shift in power could cause the way the voice sounds to change. That is the excuse I am sticking with.

This interview might have the answers. We just need to translate it.


My Japanese is bad, but it seems as though they changed the voice to fit Mewtwo's role in the movie. They tout that it focuses on the friendship of Ash/Mewtwo/Genesect to show the relationship of humans and Pokemon, which makes sense because in what I've read of the manga Ash was trying to befriend one of the Genesect, I think it's saying something like the change was to reflect that understanding(or misunderstanding) with Mewtwo.

That's what I got out of it, so take it with a grain of salt. No word if my predictions in my previous post are correct so...

If anything, it would make more sense for Mewtwo to be female, considering that it is a clone of Mew, and clones can only be female.

And where did the idea of Mewtwo being male come from? It's a pretty gender-neutral Pokemon.

The first movie voice(both dub/raw) definitely conveys a strong male presense. They should really be no question on why everyone took him as such.

Yet, ingame, Mewtwo has a decidedly gender-neutral "Mloo-noo-noo-nee-nee-nee" sound.

Well Mewtwo never really speaks, he just uses telepathy, so maybe he just used a different voice? either that or the Japanese actor sounds a lot different, like ash. For some reason I think the wa the Japanese ash talks is hilarious, cuz it sounds so small and really girly, while he looks like hes trying to be some macho man or something lol.
