Pokeman Go finally gets Mewtwo, one of the most powerful Pokemon we’ve come across in the game in a very long time. Mewtwo is certainly worth the hype as it’s referred to as the most powerful character in Pokemon Go so far. And the first to see this new Pokemon would be Pokemon trainers in major cities across the world. That being said, there’s still a chance that even you might get access to Mewtwo through Ex Raid Pass Invites.
For now, there’s only one way to get Mewtwo in Pokemon Go – by fighting him in an EX Raid Boss Battle. Players must ensure they win the fight. Also, they must then hit Mewtwo with a Pokeball to catch the Pokemon.
Ex Raid invites in Pokemon Go happen to be a bit different compared to Raid Passes redeemed at Pokemon Go Gyms. As players who often win Raid Battles are the ones who usually get first dibs on ExRaid passes. It appears that all Ex Raid passes go out within 48 hours after the last Raid Battle has bene played. Therefore, players who participate in Raids on a daily basis are likely the ones to get Ex-Raid pass shortly.
Also, Ex Raid passes are likely to be found in your city’s PokemonGo Gym initially than anywhere else, as Gyms will most probably feature the first series of Mewtwo fights. Being an EX-level Pokemon in the game, Mewtwo therefore needs an EX Raid pass in the game.
Not to forget, the battle with Mewtwo won’t come easy because he cannot be defeated by a single trainer. Trainers need to form groups of at least 6 or 7 to stand a chance against Mewtwo and eventually win the battle.
Meanwhile in Japan, some trainers have already had a chance to battle Mewtwo. A video of the first battle with Mewtwo apparently suggests that the best strategy to use against Mewto is constant dodging. Also, players need to perfect the timing of their throws down as Mewtwo appears to have a higher base catch rate compared to other legendary Pokemons found in the game.
