Pokémon GO Mewtwo Raid Counters

The legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo, is finally making its appearance in Pokémon GO and will be available as an Exclusive Tier 5 Raid Boss. Mewtwo unlocked at the Pokemon GO Stadium event in Yokohama, Japan. This guide explains what Pokémon should use against this dominant Psychic-type Legendary.

Mewtwo is a pure psychic-type Pokémon ranking first in attacking in Pokémon GO. Since this type of Pokemon is unique, it can be a bit difficult to put together a team. The types of Pokémon you want to use to deal with Mewtwo are the Bug, Dark, and Ghost types.


The dark and rock type Pokémon will be the most powerful you want on your team. While a good game consisting of Bite and Stone Edge is good, you'll want Bite and Crunch to do as much damage as possible against Mewtwo. Tyranitar will be able to observe a lot of damage with the partially dark type.


Dark and Fire-type Pokémon will be on hand with a move set that includes Snarl and Foul Play. Houndoom might not be a great defensive Pokémon, but makes up for it with its attack power.


Scyther's Bug and Steel evolution is without a doubt one of the most powerful Bug-type Pokémon to use. A Fury Cutter and X-Scissor moving set will definitely be the best choice. Scizor has great defense and even better offense.


While this Flying and Water Pokémon may be out of its element, it can experience Dark-type moves. Similar to Tyranitar, you want a set of bite and crackle movements to do the most damage.


The dark type evolution of Eevee has high defense and will surely be one to have if you want to stick in battle for a long time. You want this Pokémon to have a move set that includes Snarl and Foul Play.


For those looking to fight with a decent striker, Gengar will be the optimal choice. The downside is that this is a type of Poison, which will be hit by Mewtwo's attacks harder than your other options. However, if you're optimizing his Hex and Shadowball attack, you should. You'll always want to rely on Dark-type choices, such as Sucker Punch. You might want to throw Gengar closer to the end of the fight, but you should do well otherwise.

These Pokémon are the ones you'll want to have in your lineup against this mighty Pokémon. If you haven't prepared for this fight, I suggest you do it now.
