Sweet, Sweet Sixteen

In 1996 a pair of magical games launched in the Land of the Rising Sun, a pair of games that would alter the course of the gaming industry, and anime, for nearly a decade and continue to make itself felt for more than fifteen years, inspiring creative minds and corporate fat cats to this day. Of course, I'm sure most of you have already figured what it is I'm babbling on about.

Close, but no Chimchar.
But there's still twenty-one days until the franchise hits its birthday. Oh no, I'm here to let you all in on a secret bigger than the franchise, bigger than the industry, bigger than life itself. Today, on February 6th, 2012, ten months and fifteen days before the apocalypse, we have gathered together here to celebrate the final birthday of a single mon with the power to change the world, who has gone on a long and winding spiritual journey to find the inner piece he needed to use that power for good. Today we celebrate the sixteenth birthday of our dearest friend, our most frightful foe, and our fellow brother-in-arms... Today is the anniversary of a day upon which the first and last of an army was born... Today is the day where we certainly hope he doesn't develop the typical hormonal outbursts that happen to guys his age, because Arceus help us all if he does. Today is the sixteenth birthday of... Mewtwo!

"What do you mean this isn't my birthday suit?"
That's right! On this day sixteen years ago the greatest Pokemon and Pokemon Trainer was born to the world  in a mansion on the shores of sandy Cinnabar Island. Don't believe me? Well I've got his birth certificate.

So now that all you non-believers feel like a bunch of Snubbull, I hope you pay your due respects. To celebrate the day, here's some cool pictures I found in Mewtwo's baby book. Wasn't he just the cutest?
