Pokemon Go: Armored Mewtwo coming to battle raids

Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution Pokémon Movie Trailer Released

A CG remake of the very first movie, titled Mewtwo Strikes Back - Evolution, it is reportedly largely faithful to the original but there's one major change in the form of Mewtwo's armored design from the very beginning.

It was announced with a new trailer yesterday that Armored Mewtwo will be added as a temporary raid boss in Pokemon GO. Armored Mewtwo will be available exclusively in five-star raids, so Pokemon Go trainers looking to collect this rare Pokemon should prepare. If you haven't seen the film that this is based on - 1998's Pokémon: The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back - some of the scenes above verge on being a little bit spoiler-y. Mewtwo is one of Pokémon Go's strongest attackers, after all. As you can imagine, it also lets us take a look at several Pokemon such as Mew, Mewtwo; Blastoise, Pikachu, and Venusaur. Mewtwo would later shed the armor when he escaped the lab.

For any recluses out there who didn't watch the Pokémon anime growing up, this is likely a nod to Jessie, James and Meowth, the Team Rocket trio in the show who regularly travel via hot-air balloon. Unfortunately, the Armored Mewtwo will be there for a limited time.

You will only be able to encounter Armored Mewtwo in a five-star Raid fight. But given Niantic's tradition of reusing content with visual updates in the past, it's probably safe to assume the same here.

Pokemon Go is available now on iOS and Android devices. You can also check out our list of everything you've missed if you haven't played Pokemon Go since launch.
