Inspired by Guardsman Sparky's wonderful story, A Matter of Genetics

Now available on fanfiction.net

The Cycle of Life, Death, and Rebirth. Not even the most powerful Pokemon in the world can lift an appendage to alter it, stop it, or even slow it down. A lesson the Genetic Pokemon Mewtwo learns the hard way when the Bringer of Death, Yveltal, emerges to destroy all life on the planet so it can begin anew. And yet, all is not lost for the Pokemon Super-Clone, for the Pokemon God, Arceus and the Order Pokemon, Zygarde, have taken pity on him and offer him a chance at a clean slate. However, there is a catch: he will lose all of his memories, save for his name and mastery of his powers.

Now transformed into a gijinka version of himself, Mewtwo meets Princesses Celestia and Luna, as well as their champions, the Elements of Harmony aka the Mane 6, and is sent to work and live among the inhabitants of Ponyville. Join him as he embarks on adventures with the Elements of Harmony, learns what it's like to fall in love, and be loved in return, face down threats that only he can stop, and try to regain his missing memories.

A Pokemon crossover that starts during "The Return of Harmony Part 2." Contains Twilight Sparkle X Mewtwo, Soarin X Rainbow Dash, and Spike X Rarity. Human and anthro tags for "gijinka" ponies/Pokemon, which I understand to mean humans that retain certain aspects of their original counterparts, such as tails, horns, wings, etc.

Woooo a mewtwo story i like the idea also i have learned a new word neat

#2 · 1w, 1d ago · · ·

I love Pokemon/MLP crossover and this one sounds promising.

I notice some minor mistakes like missing or extra spaces, but the more noticeable was Spike being depict having wings and no tail and Discord being depict twice.

And also this segment where a word is missing.

Rainbow Dash, who had rainbow-colored that wouldn't look out of place on a punk

I'll fix the missing word, but as for Discord being depicted twice and Spike having wings?

#4 · 1w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

I really liked the humor that was put into the fight scene; I'm very excited to see where this ride goes! :pinkiehappy:

#5 · 1w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

I don't understand why, in universe, he didn't wipe Discord's mind clear, right off the bat; have you seen the Death Battle between him and Shadow? Right before he snaps his fingers, BAM! No memory of what he was doing, where was was, or anything he could do. From there, Discord could've been left to sit there, for the Mane Six to deal with. Hell, that could've been a jumpstart to his reformation.

Although, now that I think about it, that could've made for a lot more boring fight scene, not to mention a shorter chapter.

>>8107303 That's about what I figured, anyway. Maybe he, in universe, just didn't think to do it, since he literally just became a self aware, conscious, sapient being, from his perspective...? Admittedly, we're not firing on all cylinders, and thusly, not completely coherent, the moment we wake up.

... Existential lag...? It's like jet lag, but with the bonus of existential crises.

>>8107303 To put it another way, it's like that moment, after you first become inflicted with retrograde amnesia, and you brain kinda goes, "oh, I'm a thing that exists, and I'm aware of that, so let's press start on that coherent thought app, for our HigherBrainFunction.OS!""

That makes sense.

MOAR PLEASE

>>8107153 actually it is rainbow colored mane not hair. They made the same mistake in the pilot episode of mlp when rarity stated Out of my hair? What about your hair?!". (please don't make fun of me for the "fun" fact)

If you read the preface more carefully, you'll learn that they are humans with pony traits and not full blown anthros. So speaking of hair isn't wrong.

Here's a picture of what they mostly look like in this story, so you can have a better representation.

>>8107340 is the word "gijinka" in the dictionary anywhere? this is the first time i heard the word.

#19 · 1w, 15h ago · · 1 ·

>>8108274 found the term...also nice first chapter... looking forward to more

#20 · 1w, 14h ago · 1 · 1 ·

Nice idea I like it.

#21 · 1w, 14h ago · · ·

>>8108063 My apologies I had forgotten they were anthro's

#22 · 6d, 23h ago · · ·

That paper Mario  track fits discord perfectly.

You have a bad habit of using run-on descriptions that don't contribute to an overall style. Case in point:

"Come on, girls, if we can get back to the library, I have a book that I just know will give us a clue!" said one of the unicorns, who, unlike her friends who were currently the same shade of gray as a rock, had a dark blue mane and tail, both of which had a magenta stripe in them, and wore a purple jacket with a magenta starburst on it, underneath which was a white shirt, black pants, and magenta and purple sneakers. This was Twilight Sparkle, and no sooner said this than she was trampled by a gang of bunnies with unusually long legs.

That is way too many details in a paragraph that is only two sentences long.

There's a difference between right description and plenty of description. You've successfully described the physical attributes of Twilight Sparkle, but who the hell cares? And more importantly, why do we need to know that she's wearing what she's wearing? Simply mentioning that she wore a magenta shirt and black pants is enough. No one cares that she wears sneakers.

I'm interested!

Never seen this form of human/pony hybrid being used in fiction, but I don't mind that, it makes it unique. With the fic itself seems to be coming out great, and I'm curious to see what you do with this.


Also, love Matter of Genetics!
