As a legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo is an exceptional species in the lore of the game in that it is a genetically-modified creature with little to no remorse or empathy towards humans for their transgressions leading to its creation. It is a clone of one of the most important Pokémon in the franchise's story, Mew, who is seen as a deity of creation (but lesser to Arceus, the creature who created the universe in-game). Furthermore, according to the item's auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

The Pokémon featured on this card was the main antagonist of the film Pokémon: The First Movie, Mewtwo!
