Fake Pokemon - Mnu Tau by Prinny-Dood Fake Pokemon - Mnu Tau by Prinny-Dood
Height 7 foot 2 inches
Species: Artificial pokemon
Type: Sound/psychic
Dex Entry: The Mnu experiment was undertaken in secrecy, with a wide range of test models using various techniques in an attempt to revive and exceed the success of Mewtwo. The Tau model was created by cloning Mewtwo rather than Mew, with significant genetic augmentations. It is one of only 2 models deemed a success in the Mnu line, proving to have extraordinary power.


Some extra information
The Mnu experiment was created to revive the pokemon hero Mewtwo with an enhanced body. After an attack by a strange unidentified pokemon, Mewtwo died trying to protect both his trainer and the surrounding city. Although he managed to fend off the pokemon and save those around him, he himself died soon after the encounter. Remembered not only as a hero but as one of the most powerful pokemon in known history, it became clear that he was still needed after his death when the mysterious pokemon began randomly attacking other cities. Aside from the first city he managed to save, the cities were devastated without the hero pokemon.

With Mewtwo's own creation having been manmade, a team was put together with the goal to not just repeat Mewtwo's success but to exceed it, and if at all possible, to revive the hero pokemon in a new body. Many models were created through many means, but in the end only 2 were deemed successes.

After many of it's brothers were created by trying to recreate the Mew clone concept, Mnu Tau was finally conceived by using Mewtwo's already altered dna as it's basis. Using new sciences developed since Mewtwo's original conception, the genetic code was altered and augmented far more, pushing it to the very limits of the scientist's capabilities. However the true success of Tau was not the genetic coding. Basing everything on an untested crackpot theory, Mewtwo's original consciousness was successfully recreated within the new, more powerful body. Like it's brother Mu however, the memories were difficult to transfer. While it's memories are not entirely missing like Mu's, they are very hazy and vague, feeling more like tales read to him by a parent than his own memories.

It is the first part of the Mnu duo, more or less the brother of Mnu Mu.

And no, they do not evolve into or from one another, and they are not different forms of one pokemon. They are 2 separate, distinct pokemon which originate from the same line of experiments. Their designations (Mu and Tau) are part of their actual names, not forme names. They are sometimes referred to simply as their designates, Mu and Tau, dropping the Mnu entirely.

While it maintains a personality like that of Mewtwo, due to his memories of his past self being so hazy he can be seen as behaving more like the offspring of Mewtwo than a direct copy. Given that he does retain SOME memories, hazy though they may be, he can be seen to behave somewhat like the elder brother of the pair, with memories of a parent passed away. His memories, though they may be hazy, are enough to make him a bit wiser and reserved compared to Mu.

naming
The name was fun on this one...
instead of doing the original plan of Mew+number...I came up with Mnew. (pronounced New)
That looked funny though. So I changed the spelling to Mnu. Still pronounced the same, though. :)

Since this version of Mnu is (at this point loosely) based more on Mewtwo's proportions, I gave it the designate Tau, so that it sounds similar to "New two" (although tau is pronounced like ...well like tau. Whatever, close enough, I thought it was clever. xD)

One last thing to note

Yep, I ditched the Mewtwo evolution idea, and went instead for the more common third clone concept. At least it will be a bit more distanced from the new official Mewtwo form change. lol
This is also the beginning of me trying to establish my sound type a bit better. I'll be posting a specific list of weaknesses and strengths of sound type, as well as it's niche among types and why sound is relevant as it's own type.

This change is by far the biggest reason I dislike the new crap they've done at Nintendo. Not only is Ultios a far, far better design, but the story you devised made me tingle, and I highly doubt they'll do anything even remotely cool with Mewtwo in the pokeverse.
RIP Ultios concept. You shall live on as my own personal canon.

To be fair I had already planned on combining Ultios and Mnu into one pokemon for the last 3 or so months lol. True enough, seeing Nintendo give Mewtwo a new form did kinda suck because it felt like my idea was being ripped a bit. But it was always a bit overboard. Mewtwo evolved, then got a powered up alternate form that was really more like evolving again than an alternate form. Plus I had a clone of that most powerful form.

It was just getting a bit much lol. I'm trying to "mature" my pokemon. Keep them original and such but also drop some of the excessive rule breaking. Thus why I've been considering dropping broken form for a while. And further from there, changing Ultios from an evolution altogether. Plus, I didn't like Ultios' name. I love Mnu's. Soooooo I combined them lol.

Trust me, I'm going to try to make this new Mnu concept just as interesting as Ultios' old story.

The thought of Mewtwo going mad and becoming stronger as a result sort of made me want you to keep Ulitos (concept), for I loved the story idea for it, Mewtwo wanders off then suddenly he is unable to control himself he's changed and unable to cope again.
However I don't disagree about this becoming Mnu form though because I felt it looked closer to Mnu that Ulitos broken (Mewtwo).

haha! A little disappointing to lose Mewtwo altogether but that'll add depth to the story line (if you go ahead).
I sort of like the fact that they develop into their own beings while also gaining parts (the conscious and some memories) of Mewtwo along the way and I like how you also brought Mnu back into it through that.

Another way you could swing the story could be that these are brought about by someone who had obtained Mewtwo's DNA during the main characters travels and these are different groups attempts to exceed Mewtwo?
Mewtwo losing (to both Mu and Tau new pokemon)resulting in a need to go down a dark path (Ulitos) (broken form is Ulitos) defeating his own fears etc over his powers to evolve again (new design past Ulitos) and step up to the two attempt to exceed him and destroy everything(did that make sense?) But it's your story I don't want to take that from you I just wanted to put that thought out there.

Well, I LOVE Mewtwo. He's the whole reason I originally created Ultios and such, because I wanted to evolve him to be stronger. And forms are generally a rearrangement of existing stat bases, not increases in overall stats like an evolution can be. In particular, I wanted Mewtwo to become something that could stand with Arceus in terms of power. Because I hate the stupid fat goat.

I've had an urge lately to reign in a lot of my creations. I have a tendency to go on power trips with some of my pokemon and break a few too many rules, despite hating it when others go overboard. I still plan on breaking the rules a bit here and there. My outlaws will remain OP, as thats what makes them outlaws lol. But I'm going to make the Pokegod pantheon a design showcase of sorts, set to the side and totally taken out of my region's canon, keeping only 2 within the canon instead of 13. Those 2 also won't be connected to Arceus anymore to villify him, they'll just be kindof like another legend of a deity pokemon, just like how the real world works with these sort of things. But anyway. I'm getting sidetracked lol

With Ultios being another one of the biggest offenders of rule breaking by evolving a legendary, and since I liked the name Mnu better than Ultios anyway, I wanted to find a new way to not only connect Mnu back to Mewtwo, but keep it original. So I decided for drama of the story element, as well as to keep Mewtwo tied into all of it, I'd make them revivals of Mewtwo. That way it wouldn't be like a rival to Mewtwo, but an extension of his story.

Especially since Mewtwo now has an official alternate form, I feel like it would begin to become really, really redundant to give him an evolution after an extra form. Much less an evolution with a form change of its own lol
And who knows, maybe this is Nintendo's attempt to do my own goal. Bring Mewtwo's power up to match Arceus'. Maybe this form will stat-wise be an evolution. That would especially make a further evolution redundant. Yanno?

I agree with your points about making Mewtwo redundant by adding extra evolutions after forms and that have occurred as I said I love the sound of that story line because it felt like Mewtwo could become top again (I also don't like Arceus) it would also be a good commitment and effort lesson for kids.

Definitely keep the outlaw pokemon because they make the region unique, with the poke gods perhaps just have them involved as Legend Notes not actual useable pokemon I still like the fact you make Arceus evil because what sort of god would have his power stuck in plates and that stupid golden tiara stuck to it's body if not for a curse. The whole idea of an extra or other "deity pokemon" makes the story more realistic for the fact that in real life there is more than one belief and even though I didn't at first I now enjoy the fact you have a panel of deity pokemon who evenly watch over the world (like mythology).

What I am saying is don't completely scrap what you have done so far most of it's good (don't feel you have to change everything), finish expanding on ideas, story lines, pokemon designs, how many pokemon appear in the region and region plans (map, layout) get them all down pat and out to see then play with the extra stuff like how the gods place whether they are just legend or are the true untold story of how things happened.
I like the thought that Belzades vs Arceus would be evil vs evil (the world isn't perfect) adding another to the mix who is good (there are still good people/things in this world) but I dunno it's your concept I'd just like for you to expand more first with everything done then start slashing back.

Well, I'm still going to keep the pantheon as strictly designs, and I'll eventually finish it out too. I just think adding THAT many god pokemon becomes... excessive. I already kindof feel like recent official regions have added WAY too many legendaries... I feel like it kindof cheapens them the more that are added. And not only am I adding legendaries, but GOD legendaries lol

Thats why I want to remove them from canon. So they can be exercises in concept and design, but not oversaturate my region. I suppose though, that you could say they are like how you said. Pokemon that could be part of my regions lore, but not catchable. Like I said though, I DO want to keep the idea of new god pokemon in my region to compete with Arceus, even if not directly. Even if only for the matter of giving an alternative poke-mythology to his. Lately I've been digging the concept of legendary duos instead of trios. I've always loved Belzades, so I think Belzades will definitely stay one of the catchable ones. And I think I'll keep Runicos, alter it to be a bit more grandios, and have them be a life and death duo. Thats my current plan.

Definitely keep Belzades he adds so much variety to any storyline you can play Belzades any way you want.
I agree with the fact that the title Legendary is redundant, I suppose that Duo's work. Who'd partner Belzades? The Life and Death duo works well just unsure how you'll play that out.
Sounds good though!

Keen on seeing some more normal pokemon designs as well as all of this ;) keep up the good work!

so does Mnu still evolve into Ultios..? Or am I confusing two seperate concepts?

Prinny-Dood Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
lol 2 different concepts. Ultios broken evolved from Mewtwo, and then changed form to Ultios Perfect. And Mnu was a clone of Ultios perfect. It was convoluted and unnecessary lol.

So now I've just simplified it a bit. Broken form is ditched entirely.

The smaller Mnu form (which I haven't given a proper form name yet) is another Mew clone, so to speak. And what WAS Ultios Perfect, is now an alternate form of Mnu instead. I'll explain it a bit better in a few days when I post the revised mini-Mnu form.

Prinny-Dood Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay, well I actually went a totally different direction lol. But let me try to better describe how this has changed xD

Initially I made Maxtriyu, an evolution of Mewtwo. Then I made Ultios, the evolution of Maxtriyu. After that I made Mnu as a clone of Ultios.

Eventually I changed it a bit. I made Maxtriyu a weaker form of Ultios instead. So Maxtriyu became Ultios broken forme, while I referred to the original Ultios as perfect form. That way Mewtwo would only evolve once, but would then have a form change, just because I began to feel like a legendary evolving was already taboo, and evolving it twice was overkill. I left Mnu as it was.

Finally decided that evolving a legendary at all was a bit much. Plus I began to get tired of Ultios' name since it had no meaning at all, and was just made up to sound cool. I always really liked Mnu's name though, so I decided to make Ultios perfect an alternate form of Mnu instead of an evolution of Mewtwo.

But I've changed it one last time, and this one I will settle on. Now Ultios perfect and Mnu are both different, individual pokemon created from the same line of experiments. Basically, they are different versions of the same concept. So now they are Mnu Mu (the original incarnation of Mnu) and Mnu Tau (what was previously Ultios perfect.)

Did I explain it well that time? xD
