    In one of the strangest collisions of worlds we recently saw ‪@stephenasmith‬ debate whether Lebron James would be able to beat Mewtwo in a game of basketball. Could the legendary Pokemon take on The KING and come out victorious? Stephen A. Smith was unsure which is EXACTLY where I come in! LeBron vs. Mewtwo... GAME ON!

      Yeah, Mewtwo wrecks Lebron, period. This video didn’t even account for Mewtwo’s mind reading feats, or the fact he DOESN’T need a stone to mega evolve into EITHER of his mega forms. Matpat would not have missed this detail.

      ​@@TyranntXIt did though. Mega Evolution isn't allowed as it is an Outside object that enhances abilities and it stated toward the end and showed that MewTwo's Mind Reading can still be snuck up on. As for lore references, in not only the Games but also every form of Media MewTwo has appeared in, it has been surprised or caught in spite of its severe mental prowess. Anyways, have a lovely day!

      ​@@KBRoller The thing about Unnerve is not that it just makes opponents unable to eat berries, it's that the reason for why it does so is because it makes the opponents *too nervous* to eat berries.
      So, not only would LeBron be more tired and heavier because of pressure, he could also be too nervous to even dribble or shoot correctly. Mewtwo stomps and it's not even close.

  • @DaxSkrai

    So LeBron gets powers from any source, including satirical comics, but not Mewtwo? Also, Mewtwo can't mess with LeBron's mind cause it's against the rules, but LeBron can break the rules "as long as he doesn't get caught"? This feels like quite the one sided ref, not unlike a lot of Lakers games I guess.

    counterpoint: "me first" is in mewtwo's natural learnset, bypasses accuracy checks (meaning it can still hit targets with high evasiveness like lebron's invisibility), and with base 130 speed putting mewtwo in the top 20 fastest gen 9 pokemon, any attempt of dunking made by lebron would be pre-emptively countered by mewtwo dunking first

    There is a big flaw here. Lebron's counter only works on PROJECTILES, and since mewtwo's telepathic manipulation of the ball was considered physical, Lebron's counter would not work, meaning that they would jsut keep trading points rather than Lebron always countering.

    • @FrostedMike

      Which makes it a surprisingly even match. It gets better if you take into consideration Mewtwo's superior speed and Lebron's superior experience. This might be Mewtwo's first ever basketball match so he goes in only knowing the rules and possibly training a little before the match, while Lebron is breathing basketball and is leagues more experienced. This is before any powers with purely their physical abilities.
      This is an interesting match.

      And it also assumes that Mewtwo, a being with intelligence far surpassing any human, would continue shooting the ball straight into Lebron's hands instead of waiting half a second for lebron to fall back down to the ground. And if psychic powers count as physical contact, there's nothing stopping him from ripping the ball out of lebron's hands even before he goes for a shot.
      If we go by the rules in this video, Mewtwo could just levitate the ball 50 ft in the air and shoot it at mach speeds to the net and release his powers so blocking would be illegal, and Lebron could never even get the ball above net height without it being ripped out of his hands.

    Defense for Mewtwo: Level Up Moveset
    1. Confusion: Like just make him confused about something arbitrary, his tunnel vision and concentration may break.(This could be banned)
    2. Disable: Its a bit leaning towards the unorthodox side but Mewtwo can just cancel the abilities that LJ does have.
    3. Safeguard: Self-explanatory
    4. Future Sight: He can find where the ball will be in the future as long as the ball is visible, which it has to be at some point.
    Plus you can't count a point if the ref or judge doesn't see the ball go into the net in the first place, so the ball must be visible, which then cascades into Mewtwo being able to do his moves.

    First of if Mewtwo doesn't get to have a mega stone LeBron doesn't get item powerups. I would also say the best set for Mewtwo would be the ability pressure, and moves barrier, mist, recover, and either psychic or aura sphere which are all obtainable naturally. Pressure would tire LeBron out twice as fast, barrier would be used to block the ball, mist to obscure LeBron's vision, recover to increase Mewtwo's stamina, and psychic would allow mewtwo to manipulate the ball or aura sphere would let him have 100% accuracy with the ball but it could still be blocked.

    Honestly I feel very convinced but not fully, considering that you said that mewtwo psychic powers are illegal in basketball but Lebron is able to turn invisible. You mention that he can’t be caught then, but won’t he be caught once he dunks the ball? The other thing I had also thought about was you didn’t really develop any characteristic attacks that mewtwo has for example he also can use teleport which is almost the same or better as lebrons invisibility. I also took note that mewtwo can use disable an attack that will stop Lebron from using his block mewtwo can also use barrier which dose the same as lebrons special block also can’t mewtwo also guard the hoop and can’t mewtwo use confusion to make lebron miss his shots? I don’t really know but I would like to hear some other opinions on this topic.

  • @FineSeasoning
    @FineSeasoning 21 วันที่ผ่านมา +225

    You forgot to mention how Mewtwo can just hold the ball and teleport, and even if that isn't allowed, Mewtwo is canonically known for being aircraft level speed.
    Mewtwo also can see into the future, create mist along the entire court, use power swap AND guard swap, along with disable and confusion. (All of these are from level up, not TMS)
    Mewtwo could swap defensive abilities, disable invisibility, and oops forgot to mention- LeBron James couldn't even touch Mewtwo with the force fields Mewtwo is canonically shown to make in the movie.
    Who's to say Mewtwo can't just put up a force field around him, hold the ball, teleport to the rim, float there and just pass the ball through the hoop?

    There's actually one big mistake in this theory! Mewtwo doesn't actually need the stones to mega evolve. In both "Genesect and the Legend Awakened" and "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX." Mewtwo is able to mega evolve without using anything. I believed it's called an awakened form, and Mewtwo is able to mega evolve into both forms. With this in mind, I think Mewtwo would beat Lebron even with his comic powers.

    I don't think this is really all that sound:
    1- Learning TMs before the fight should be allowed because Lebron is perfectly allowed to learn new moves or techniques before the fight. That means that:
    A- Mewtwo could use Psychic Noise to bypass Lebron's 'Substitute'
    B- Mewtwo could use Disable ( learned at level 1 ) to Disable Lebron's Invisibility or Substitutes, and also Imprison to stop Lebron from using Substitutes of his own.
    C- Mewtwo could use Brick Break to shatter Lebron's sheild.
    D- Aura Sphere Ignores evasion changes, so Mewtwo would still be able to hit Lebron despite him being invisible.
    E- Mewtwo could use Swagger to confuddle Lebron before he even gets the chance to pull his tricks.
    2- Mewtwo has been shown in media other than the games to be Capable of Mega Evolution without the required stone. Pokken Tournament especially.
    3- I'm fairly certain turning completely invisible is 'against the spirit of the game'

    ALMOST. We did not delve into Mewtwo's movepool enough - excluding technical machines, as noted, but including move tutor moves. We have: Gravity (unsure if this counts as impeding LeBron as essentially all it would do is counter his levitation), Disable (which could prevent LeBron from using his moves, though unsure if that counts as impeding), Miracle Eye (which allow Mewtwo to hit evasive targets e.g. invisible ones) and the icing on the cake the two moves Mimic/Me First & Role Play, which allow Mewtwo to respectively copy moves and abilities of LeBron.
    I also wonder how far Mewtwo could float the ball up vs. how far LeBron could fly, because Mewtwo could simply drop the ball from high enough into the basket - downward motion and untouched, so cannot be goalkept.

      Catch is that it's not a fight, but a basketball match with all rules applied (with stretching the definition of some aspects). Neither Mewtwo nor Lebron James can do whatever they want. If no powers are allowed at all, I think it's a surprising even match with each have different advantages: Mewtwo is faster while Lebron is more experienced. With powers I think it would come down to who can get a hold of the ball more often so I would give a slight edge for Mewtwo purely based on speed.

    Mewtwo's level up movesets and move tutor movesets should be included since they don't require TM discs to be learned. Mewtwo learns Miracle Eye by leveling up in Gen 5 which enables an evasive target to be hit, negating LeBron's invisibility. Mewtwo also learns Substitute by move tutor in Gen 3, so both of them can make decoys.

    Great theory, But you missed that 1. If it WAS illegal to go invisible hen lebron would be caught as he would have to reappear to make the point count, If nobody see him score they can't count it. 2. mewtwo could let go of the ball after it's perfectly aligned close to the goal. Therefore lebron could not stop him because it would be goaltending Lebron might still win but Mewtwo now has a better chance.

  • @jonathonellis5604
    @jonathonellis5604 21 วันที่ผ่านมา +7

    Oke so couple things:
    1. thats how decoy works INGAME not in the logic of the pokemon universe, in universe it's basicly a substitution jutsu, and even then thats not the same as what lebron is doing
    2. mewtwo has been clocked around 100mph or around 5x as fast as lebron on his best day
    3. waving off his telepthy because "he's been snuck up on" is like saying "this swordsman can't fight because he dosen't have a sword" after a couple seconds he would be able to lock on to lebron and stay locked on to know exactly where he is regardless of invisibility, also as DND puts it, invisibility just makes it so a person can't see you, not that you don't leave any traces
    4. mewtwo's psysic power is pinpoint accurate enough to let him fight against multiple pokemon that are just as fast as them, if not more so (the genosect movie) sure they lost that fight but again 100MPFH
    so here's how i think this would go, mewtwo would be caught off guard for like the first 3 points, maybe 4 if lebron can put up that guard enough, but then mewtwo just....dodges the guard? and steals the ball as soon as he hears it bouncing and scores 50 baskets in the next fourty minutes

    Before the move was removed in gen 8, Mewtwo could learn miracle eye, which has the effect of resetting the opponents evasiveness. This implies Mewtwo would be able to see invisible Lebron as if he were visible. Mewtwo can also learn disable which disables a move for 1-8 turns which he could use to disable Lebron's substitute after he uses it. Then Mewtwo could grab the ball with telekinesis, and teleport to the goal to shoot before Lebron can block it.

      you never see mewtwo actually watching the tms so it does count as drugs, also disable counts as impeding a player's progress and he can't use it, and since lebron isn't in a turn based battle game we don't know wether substitute is gonna work on him

You also said “Any kind of equipment that is designed to increase a player’s height or reach or in any way give an unfair advantage is not permitted” and the ring is giving lebron a unfair advantage. So no lebron James won’t beat mewtwo in a 1v1 basketball match.
