LinksThese are some sites I think you'll be interested in, for one reason or another. Some are still active, some of them don't update anymore, and some of them are defunct and archived, but I think all of them are worth a visit or ten.
If your site's not linked here and you think it should be, just e-mail me. While I won't promise anything, I'll certainly look into your site and probably add it. And, although I'm not the best button-maker in the world, I'll be happy to make you a site button if you don't have one. I did that for some of the links below that didn't have link buttons before. Everyone should have a site button!
If you'd like to link to me, first of all, thank you so much! Secondly, here are some banners you can use.
Shrines and Information-Based Sites
Rosy has been a good friend of mine and an important motivator and inspiration for Copy Cat for many years. We first met when Rosy contacted me to tell me her thoughts about my site and to share her Mewtwo-related fanart; we became online pen-pals, and the rest, as they say, is history: we're married now, and we like to reminisce on how it was Pokémon and fansiting that originally brought us together from opposite sides of the world. :)
Rigelatin is Rosy's fansite collective, featuring the all the fansites she has built and continues to build, Pokémon-related and non-Pokémon-related. Rigelatin is also the current home of Copy Cat and pretty much any other fun website projects we now work together on, like Staircase Spirit, the Random JRPG generator and other such silliness. Check it out!
- One of Rosy's fansites on Rigelatin is I AM², a shrine to Ai, Mewtwo's forgotten childhood friend. Rosy dives into the poetry of Ai's repeated life, accompanied by a layout of ethereal changing drawings, similar in style to the psychic communication the clones had in The Birth of Mewtwo Audio Drama.
Kokowa Dokoda (Defunct; Check the Archived Version or the Old Archived Version)
- Megan, known back in the day as Peanutbuttermewtwo, had a terrific Mewtwo fansite full of information, humor, and wonderful artworks. I used to talk with Megan frequently while we were both starting our respective fansites, and she was one of my primary inspirations and sources of information for creating Copy Cat. She was just in the midst of giving Kokowa Dokoda a massive overhaul when Yahoo! made their ridiculous decision to pull the plug on their Geocities hosting service; Megan lost all her work and the drive to recreate it. Some of her site was archived by a determined band of rebel internet historians (no, I am not kidding), so, while Kokowa Dokoda is defunct, some archives live on, and I strongly recommend you read through what exists.
- A Spanish blog featuring all sorts of content about Mewtwo.
Passa Aí O Micro ("Hand Me That Mic")
- A Portuguese blog featuring a Portuguese translation of the Birth of Mewtwo CD Drama.
- A classic fansite for Mew and Mewtwo.
Team Rocket's Rockin' (Defunct; Check out the Archived Version)
This was one of the best Team Rocket fansites of old, and then one of the most comprehensive fansites on Pokémon glitches. As of February 2011, it is defunct, but there is an archived version (sometimes it's finicky and whines about robots.txt, but if you try again later it usually works again). This was an important site for me, both in terms of the Team Rocket fandom as well as in early fan exploration of glitches like
Missingno․, then little understood. Due to the luck of the webmistress being named Mandy, when doing the Old Man Trick, the lowercase y in her name was in just the right place for her to see the
Missingno․with the ghost sprite. Back then, no one knew why this was, and it led to all sorts of speculation and experimentation, until Mandy and the fans eventually deciphered the cause, and then delved even further into the games' mysteries.
GlitterBerri's Game Translations
- This site features concept art, interviews with game developers, and explorations of the early development of games, with a large section on Pokémon translated from Japanese to English. It provides invaluable information that allows us fans to see a little bit into the minds of the Game Freak developers and glimpse the early history of the Pokémon games.
Pocket Monsters Repository
- An excellent collection of Pokémon related sound and video, including The Birth of Mewtwo CD Drama and dubbed Mewtwo's Origin. I also love all the Japanese Pokémon music!
Pokémon Scans from PacificPikachu's Collection
- PacificPikachu's tumblr blog where she generously shares scans of her extensive and growing Pokémon merchandise collection. I am particularly a fan of all the bizarre-but-official old 4koma art.
- A massively informative site focused on comparing the Japanese version of Pokémon with the English localizations. It has tons of information about Mewtwo and the history of The First Movie, as well as comparisons of episodes of the anime, and much more!
- If you are interested in Pokémon news or stats or sprites or encounter rates or anime appearences or whatever, it's on this wiki. And if it's not...
- Anything PokéFact you need that's not on Bulbapedia is probably over here.
- I am using the great X and Y "sprite" rips from this Spanish fansite (I don't really know enough Spanish to comment on the rest, but it looks like a nice informative site).
- Pokémon Rebirth is a fansite centered around a massive and fantastic Pokémon fanfiction, focusing on the deeper and darker side of Pokémon. The site has been active for eighteen years now! I also lent my name and some bits of my personality to the development of one of the characters, heh.
- This is an comic (available in English and German) featuring Mewtwo and an original Mewtwo character, Nails, as well as other failed Mewtwo clones that exist in a strange limbo beyond the real world.
MewHeart (Defunct; Check out the Archived Version)
- MewHeart formerly was a Japanese image source that provided a lot of icons I used when I first started making Copy Cat. These included my original tiled background, the Mew emoticons that partially inspired the creation of the Ask Mew and Mewtwo section (although I later switched to using my own drawings), and the little Masterball icons I used as bullets for a very long time.
Legrendy... mewtwo homeworld
- This is just a little, old site, but I liked the Mewtwo sketches on it.
Mr. T vs. Mewtwo: T Strikes Back
- I pity the foo' who don't wanna see what happens when Mr. T faces off with Mewtwo! (Not actually a film)
Non-Pokémon Related Sites
Megan Kearney's Beauty and the Beast
- Megan, from Kokowa Dokoda, is now, among other projects, making a her own webcomic adaptation of the traditional story of Beauty and the Beast. If you enjoy classic fairy tales and/or want to follow her current artistic endeavors, you should definitely check this out.
Thistil Mistil Kistil
- Do you by any chance remember Depleti's fan-comic Chibi Kitties, about Mew and Mewtwo and Ash and Lugia and friends all living on an adorable island? She is now creating her own original webcomic, set in the world of Norse mythology. I enjoy reading this comic too (I particularly like her design of Loki), so I figured I would give her a plug here. =)
