    I saw this at the cinema when it came out and remember getting so emotional in this final scene

    If you want quotes go look up Iroh quotes from avatar. They legit beat the shit outta my brain and mould it into something new. Example: "If you look for the light you can often find it. But if you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see."

    Some people in this comment section are a bit confused and are taking the sentence "the circumstances of one's birth" to be talking of literal circumstances being poor, disabled ect. In the context of the movie the sentence is actually a metaphor for race with the clones representing a new race of Pokémon and Mewtwo realising that it doesn't matter what race you are born because everyone is born fundamentally equal.

    Except the way you were raised LITERALLY changes the methylation of your DNA so... It is kinda how you were raised.

    Would Mewtwo say this as a Magikarp provided he could talk or is he speaking from the place of privilege?

    Well.. unless you were born mega rich. Than it kind of effects things. It's like if life was a race and you started a foot before the finish line, and everyone else started 100yards back. I really hate when people don't awknowladge that and act like just any inner city kid can go anywhere as long as he pulls himself up by the bootstraps, which is a great way to say it cause pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, is fucking impossible lol. Sometimes it does matter and no matter what you do, or how hard you try, you will never have the connections, you will never have the money. Just having a parent who graduated college makes you much more likely yourself. Life becomes a generational thing when you look at the numbers, and you can point out people like gates and Zuckerburg. Both born to highly educated and well off families. I really doubt they would be where they are today of they were born to a single parent home in an impoverished neighborhood. Not saying it's impossible to be successful from nothing, but to say it doesn't matter at all would not be acknowledging the under privlaged who deserve the chance, and need it to be acknowledged for action to be taken. Rant over.

    Nice quote and all but think about it for 30 seconds and any intelligent person will see that it’s bullshit. Your entire life is determined by your circumstances. Born in shit circumstances? You’ll probably be shit too. That’s life.

    I see the appearance of the characters are irrelevant. Anime characters all talk the same.

    You people are insane. It’s fucking Mewtwo. Seconds prior to this he was raising a clone army to destroy the world. Like, just MAYBE life is actually a bit more complicated than a Saturday morning cartoon villain can comprehend.
