Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back runs on a revamped engine (but still quite glitchy) version of Makon Soft's Digimon engine. The game has 8 stages, all of which are an improvement from their earlier works. Most of the enemies are taken (or at least based) from Pocket Monster, and so is the Pikachu sprite. Playing this on an original Game Boy instead of the Game Boy Color will play a different intro sequence from the Genesis/SNES version of Pocket Monster.

- A few Super Mario 3 Special sprites still remain in the game's data.
- The name of the game is also the subtitle of the first Pokémon movie released in 1998.
- The ROM's name in its header is "POCKETMONSTER3", meaning that this was likely released after the other two Pocket Monster platformers.
