Patch for Mewtwo glitch coming soon
April 16, 2015, 07:26:36 PM by Link-NM
Nintendo is aware and has posted an announcement related to the glitch caused by using Mewtwo in certain modes in both Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U which blocks people from participating in online modes. They recommend not playing either of the following modes with Mewtwo:

-Classic
-All-Star
-Stadium
-Trophy Rush
-Smash Run

Smash Tour or other Smash modes (like online or 8-player) do not cause this glitch. (Basically, only modes which save a highscore can cause it) A patch is being prepared to fix this issue. Their full announcement (in Japanese) can be found here.
