Armored Mewtwo is coming to Pokémon Go starting July 10

It’s back, but in a different form

Mewtwo is returning to Pokémon Go’s tier five raids, kind of. A new form, Armored Mewtwo, is hitting raids starting July 10 at 4 p.m. ET.

Not much is known about Armored Mewtwo, other than that it’s the form we see in the upcoming Pokémon movie Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution. It’s a new take on the original armored-up Mewtwo we saw in the original Pokémon movie.

Given that it’s decked out in armor, it’s unknown at this point if this form will be more focused on defense stats, but either way, having Mewtwo back in raids in any form is a nice surprise. Mewtwo is one of Pokémon Go’s strongest attackers, after all. The Armored Mewtwo we see getting taken on in the video has a lower CP than its original form did in raids before, but this Pokémon will certainly be worth going on the hunt for, at least for some candy.
