Mewtwo is truly one of the most coveted Pokémon in Pokemon GO. It is a Psychic type with high damage and various effective Moves. 

And since Mewtwo is a Psychic type, it will take 160% damage from Dark, Ghost, and Bug-type Pokémon. However, Fighting and Psychic-type Moves will deal almost half as much damage to it. You can train Mewtwo with the following Moves:

  • Confusion (Fast Psychic Move)
  • Confusion (Fast Psychic Move)
  • Psystrike (Charged Psychic Move)
  • Psychic (Charged Psychic Move)
  • Return (Normal Psychic Move)
  • Frustration (Normal Psychic Move)

  • Thunderbolt (Electric Psychic Move)

As you can see, Mewtwo has some great moves. If you need recommendations, here are the best moves for Mewtwo.  


So, now you know how cool Mewtwo is in Pokémon Go, and you probably want to have it in your collection.  Mewtwo doesn't spawn in the wild, and the only way to catch Mewtwo in Pokémon GO is to wait for the 5-star Raid.

Mewtwo is already one of the strongest Pokémon in the game. And as a boss, it becomes an even more dangerous opponent. Therefore, you must carefully prepare and use the most effective Pokémon. We recommend these options:

  • Pheromosa - Bug Bite (Bug-type Fast Move) and Bug Buzz (Bug-type Charged Move)
  • Chandelure - Hex (Ghost-type Fast Move) and Shadow Ball (Ghost-type Charged Move)
  • Gengar - Lick (Ghost-type Fast Move) and Shadow Ball (Ghost-type Charged Move)
  • Darkrai - Snarl (Dark-type Fast Move) and Shadow Ball (Ghost-type Charged Move)

The 5-star Raid in Pokemon Go is quite a challenge. Developers like to add various Pokémon to 5-star Raids, especially those that haven't been introduced to Pokémon Go yet. Mewtwo hasn't appeared in 5-star Raids recently though, so sadly, since developers have not yet announced Mewtwo's return, it is impossible to catch it in Pokémon Go at the moment.


So, getting Mewtwo in Pokemon GO is a challenge, but players can still get alternative versions of Mewtwo, such as Armored Mewtwo or Shadow Mewtwo.

  • First, you must buy or create a Team Rocket Radar. It costs 200 PokeCoins in the shop. And to get the materials to craft this item, you'll have to defeat six Team GO Rocket Grunts, which is pretty easy to do.
  • After that, you will be able to use the Team Rocket Radar to locate and defeat one of the three Team GO Rocket Leaders. And since you need to defeat all three, you will need to repeat the first step two more times.
  • Defeating three Team GO Rocket Leaders will reward you with a Super Rocket Radar which will lead you to Giovanni, who will use an alternate version of Mewtwo against you. And when you defeat him, you can get the coveted legendary Pokémon.

That's all you need to know about how to get Mewtwo in Pokemon GO. This legendary Pokemon is very rare. But if you are patient enough, you can add it to your collection.
