Pokémon GO Mewtwo Raid Guide

Prepare yourself to fight this Psychic Type Legendary with these Pokémon.

The Legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo, is finally making an appearance in Pokémon GO and will be available as a Tier 5 Exclusive Raid Boss. Mewtwo was unlocked at the Yokohama, Japan Pokémon GO Stadium event that was recently held. This guide will break down what Pokémon to use against this powerful Psychic type Legendary.

Mewtwo is a pure Psychic type Pokémon that ranks number one in attack in Pokémon GO. With this being a single type Pokémon, putting a team together may be a little tough. The Pokémon types you want to use to face against Mewtwo are Bug and Dark types.


The Dark and Rock type Pokémon is going to be the strongest one you want on your team. While a move set of Bite and Stone Edge is good, you’ll want Bite and Crunch to do the most damage against Mewtwo. Tyranitar will be able to observe a lot of damage with it being partially Dark Type.

The Dark and Fire type Pokémon will be very useful with a move set of Snarl and Foul Play. Houndoom may not be a good defensive Pokémon, but makes up for it with its attack power.

The Bug and Steel evolution of Scyther is surely one of the most powerful Bug type Pokémon to use. A move set of Fury Cutter and X-Scissor will certainly be the best to have. Scizor has great defense and an even better attack.


While this Flying and Water Pokémon may be out of its element, it has the ability of knowing Dark type moves. Just like Tyranitar, you want a move set of Bite and Crunch to do the most damage.

The Dark type evolution of Eevee has a high defense and will surely be one to have if you want to stay in the battle a long time. A move set of Snarl and Foul Play are the moves you want this Pokémon to have.

These Pokémon are the ones you’ll want to have in your lineup when you face this extremely powerful Pokémon. If you haven’t been preparing for this fight, I suggest you do so now, as we should start seeing Mewtwo in the next few weeks.
