|Debut||Pokkén Tournament (2016)|
Shadow Mewtwo (Japanese: ダークミュウツー Dark Mewtwo) is a Mewtwo from the 2016 Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament. Shadow Mewtwo takes on a colour scheme that inverts his normal colours, and has a large orange Synergy Stone protruding from its left shoulder. Using its Synergy Burst, Shadow Mewtwo is capable of Mega Evolving into Mega Mewtwo X, though its black colour scheme remains under this transformation.
Shadow Mewtwo was created when a Mewtwo fused with a Shadow Synergy Stone. Shadow Mewtwo's Shadow Synergy Stone absorbs Gaia, thus disallowing Pokémon to achieve Synergy Burst.
Shadow Mewtwo is reverted back into a normal Mewtwo following the climactic battle of Pokkén Tournament. Mewtwo's friend, Anne, tells Nia and the player to take care of the Mewtwo following these events.
Shadow Mewtwo returns as a playable character in Pokkén Tournament 2, and is once again classified as a fighter. While Shadow Mewtwo played a large part in the first title's plot, and as such was a hidden character, Shadow Mewtwo's role is not as large, and is available upon the game's first start up.
- Shadow Mewtwo shares the prefix of its name with a completely unrelated type of Pokémon from Pokémon Colosseum.
