Artist's comment: Sooo yeah, this thing has a lot of backstory. When I was like 4 years old, I saw the first Pokemon movie with Mewtwo in it, and from then on, Mewtwo has been my absolute favourite Pokemon. When I was a kid, I wrote a fanfic (I didn't even know that fanfic was a thing, I just wrote it) where Mewtwo was the main character in all of the Pokemon movies. A few years ago I rediscovered the fic and decided to rewrite it, but better, and with my unapologetically Mary Sue OC Yuki in it. Yuki is Mewtwo's clone daughter who is also part Lugia because I think Lugia is cool, and she accidentally bonds with a swarm of Unown and gets godly reality warper powers. There are also a few other characters but I digress. The story loosely follows the movies (with Mewtwo still being the main character, obviously), but for a while I ran an ask blog with these characters, I came up with an idea for an original plot. And now we get to this picture.
The core idea of the plot was that Yuki makes a careless wish to her Unown, which creates a wormhole into Ultra Space, allowing the evil Ultra Arceus to enter the regular Pokemon world. Ultra Arceus then attacks regular Arceus and defeats it, scattering its plates all around the Pokemon world. Mewtwo and co now have to collect all the plates and defeat Ultra Arceus. And here is Ultra Arceus fighting regular Arceus. I'm quite proud of my Ultra Arceus design. I wanted it to be weird and creepy like Ultra Beasts, and I'm happy with the result. It took multiple iterations to get there, though.
