For those who have seen the new mewtwo movie, why is it a female now?

From what I've heard... it's a completely different Mewtwo.

It exists because cop-out bull****.

You could have deduced that on your own, but yes it is a different Mewtwo.

The annoying bit is that Ash doesn't remember what a Mewtwo is considering one tried to kill him and turned him to STONE.

It's not female, Mewtwo is genderless. It's also a different Mewtwo.

Movie 1 Mewtwo erased Ash's memories at the end of the film. Though, I'm pretty sure Ash encounters that same Mewtwo again anyway during a TV special, so he should at least be aware of the existence of a Pokemon called Mewtwo.

But they get to keep them in Mewtwo Returns or whatever it was called.

Most likely someone else outside of Team Rocket heard of Mewtwo and made their own somehow (because if that crazy scientist from the Mirage Pokémon special knew of it, it's a fair bet that others are at least aware of it existing).

As to why Ash doesn't remember, either Mewtwo Returns got removed from canon or the writers simply didn't care enough to remember (likely the latter).
