Pokémon GO: How to Defeat Mewtwo (Movesets, Weaknesses, & Counters)

Mewtwo is one of the most challenging and powerful raid battles in Pokemon Go. This guide will players provide players with its potential move sets, weaknesses, and counters. Mewtwo, regardless of what level the player is, has always been one of the Pokemon that players cannot face alone. It’s always recommended to team up with at least 5-6 other players when challenging this raid. Typically, if the player waits around a little bit, more players will join the battle. It’s almost like an unspoken rule between players to back out if the lobby is too small for the challenge. Mewtwo is also one of the legendary Pokemon that has its Shiny form in the game and this is the only way to obtain it. This guide will show players how to defeat Mewtwo in battle.

For starters, Mewtwo raid battles are 54,148 CP per attempt. It also has two different fast and multiple charge moves. It will be different with each attempt.

Overall, there is no real way to know what the Charge Move is until the battle begins but it shouldn’t matter too much based on the counters players should bring into the battle. Here are the best possible counters for taking down Mewtwo.

Mewtwo is a Psychic-type Pokemon, meaning that players should bring along a Pokemon with Ghost, Dark, or Bug-type moves. Here are the best possible counters for a Mewtwo Raid.

Although, as mentioned, and as cheesy as this sounds, friendship is the best way to take down Mewtwo. Teaming up with other players will make this battle a cinch. At the end of the battle, players are given extra Premier Balls when playing with friends. Now that the game has an invite feature, make sure to bring them along to capture this legendary Pokemon. The catch rate is pretty low so be careful when tossing them. The best thing to do would be to throw them at the end of his attack animation.

Even though Mewtwo was introduced in the first generation, it remains one of the strongest Pokemon in existence. It will likely make a return again even after the Kanto Celebration Event is over. Good luck out there, especially to trainers looking to find its Shiny version.
