After the real Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise have battle cloned versions of other Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise. Mewtwo "claims his prize" by capturing most of the pokemon (not his own, and some of the trainer pokemon are missed such as Misty's Togepi) so he can clone them which would result in 2 clones of Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise (original and new) yet we only ever see the original clones.

Factual errors 

When Ash is trying to save Pikachu from one of Mewtwo's poke balls; he chews the metal arms that grab him. His teeth would have been broken.
