Just yesterday, during Niantic’s Pokemon GO Stadium event in Yokohama, Japan we saw the debut of the much awaited Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo. Since the Times Square trailer was released and even since the launch of Pokemon GO, people have been buzzing of when Mewtwo will be coming out of the game.

Finally, the Pokemon GO community is getting what they want with the first Mewtwo raid in Yokohama. Now if you are wondering if Mewtwo will be an exclusive for the Pokemon GO Stadium event, then I’ve got great news for you.

Worldwide release!

Mewtwo will be made available worldwide but only on exclusive battle raids.

Exclusive battle raids work quite similar with the normal battle but with a catch, learn more about it and the comeback of Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos, and Lugia here.

More about Mewtwo

Now, I believe you are already excited by the idea of adding Mewtwo into your Pokedex. But first, bear in mind that Mewtwo is not a solvable as of the moment, and you’ll need a good strategy and some back up to successfully beat the Psychic Pokemon.

Speaking of good strategy, just like all the previous legendary Pokemon in the past week that has been released, Mewtwo also have several vulnerabilities that you can exploit. Psychic type is actually weak against dark, bug, and ghost Pokemon.

Best dark type counters

The best dark type counter that you can use with the Gen 1 and Gen 2 roster of Pokemon is Tyranitar.

A Tyranitar with a quick and charge attack of Bite and Crunch would deal a good amount of damage to Mewtwo.

Despite being one the best counters for Mewtwo, Tyranitar is actually vulnerable as well if matched up with the legendary pocket monster. Tyranitar also takes a significant amount of damage to fighting attacks, in fact, it obtains the most amount of damage from this type.

With Mewtwo’s Focus Blast being a fighting charge attack, make sure that you’re dodging game is on point.

Another good dark type alternative is Houndoom with Snarl and Foul Play. Houndoom might not be the strongest overall attacker next to Tyranitar, but these specific quick and charge moves are the next best thing for dark types.

Also, Houndoom is weak against fighting attacks.

Best ghost type counters

Another good counter to Mewtwo is ghost Pokemon Gengar. A Gengar with both Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball is very effective against Psychic types, and not only due to the fact that these are ghost type moves, but it’s actually Gengar’s strongest attack as well. Again, just be mindful with your dodges as Gengar is vulnerable to psychic attacks.

Best bug type counters

With bug types, Pinsir and Scizor are your best bet. A Pinsir with either Bug Bite or Fury Cutter as its quick move and X Scissor as its charge is an efficient choice battling against Mewtwo. Scizor with Fury Cutter and X Scissor would also do the trick.
