Mewtwo Amiibo Guide

Welcome to Cloud Nine’s competitive Mewtwo amiibo training guide! Cloud here, and thanks for joining me today! This guide is brought to you by Trainer Blue and Supernova384, who kindly provided all of Mewtwo’s information.

This guide is up-to-date as of version 1.1.7 of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
