Shadow Mewtwo is basically just the Mewtwo X megaform but with a dark reskin. That’s honestly why I love it though. I remember you and most hated the Mega X form in favor of Y, but I was always a proponent of having Mewtwo X for a good modern blend of psychic and physical moves in a Smash moveset. In the end though we just got an updated version of the Melee kit despite any agreements or disagreements of how Mewtwo should be redone, so… -shrug-Shadow Mewtwo is the only option that fits. And I'd like it as a extreme more glass canon version of Mewtwo in a next game. Whereas the regular Mewtwo becomes a tad more heavy (around middle weight, think Mario / Luigi, that wouldn't be too broken). Think this would make a nice contrast on the roster, the offset could be that Shadow Mewtwo gets a few stronger moves, Shadow Ball would charge faster and be stronger for example, maybe it could act out of Teleport? Do something wild. There's no good direction of Mewtwo's moveset in Smash so far, they have ****ed it up too many times. In Melee they ayed too safe with it, Ultimate was too risky and polarized, and Smash 4 had it right but Mewtwo relied too much on the air dodge gimmick and heavily needed the buff patches to become relevant.
