Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo comes to Pokemon Go

Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo comes to Pokemon Go

Mewtwo was unlocked globally after being caught in a Japanese stadium event for the game. Go catch them all! Don't worry, Niantic has got your back.

Niantic goes on to reveal that while Mewtwo is the first legendary Pokemon Trainers will face as part of the Exclusive Raid Battles, other powerful Pokemon will begin to hatch atop gyms over the next several weeks. We assume the unused Legendary Raid Pass asset will be used for this. These aren't much different than the current Raid Battles with the major caveat being that players will need to be invited to participate rather than using a simple Raid Pass.

How does one get the invite? First, players must have completed a raid at the specific gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will take place. Mewtwo isn't the first legendary to become available though.

Pokemon Go players have been clamoring for Mewtwo since the beginning of the game. With the recent failure of a Pokemon GO Fest, however, the pressure is on to make sure their summer revitalization effort goes off without a hitch.

As a Psychic Pokemon, Mewtwo takes extra damage from Dark, Bug and Ghost type Pokemon should players should have Pokemon like Gengar, Pinsir, Houndoom or Tyranitar in their party.

I've been playing Pokemon GO since before the beginning, and I've not paid a single cent to do it.

But for those Pokemon trainers that've dropped hundreds of dollars on the game assuming they'd see Mewtwo pop up in Times Square before anywhere else in the world - I see you. Nonetheless, Niantic has extended the appearance of four Legendaries in the hopes of encouraging more players to set out and capture them.
