"Renan! The Mutant Pikachu from another dimension! Dr. Mewtwo strikes!"
|The story starts with a golden Chinese dragon named the Gold Master protecting the PokeMutant World. Just then, a baby Pichu drops by, and the Gold Master decides to create a servant for him after his former servant has been banished because of his rebellion. He then used some spirits and gave them to the Pichu and named him "Renan". Fourteen years later, Renan is now a full-grown Pikachu, and is able to protect the PokeMutant World nicely. The peace was short lived, however, because Dr. Mewtwo, an evil genius Mewtwo who has terrorized the PokeMutant World fifty years ago before the show has escaped from his meteor prison and starts terrorizing the PokeMutant World again.
