Armored Mewtwo and party hat Pokémon are returning to Pokémon Go

Celebrate Pokémon Day with some special Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back ’mon

Armored Mewtwo in Pokémon Go Niantic

To celebrate Pokémon Day, Armored Mewtwo, as well as Pokémon in party hats, is rejoining the Pokémon Go line-up.

From Feb. 25 until March 2, Armored Mewtwo will be back in tier five raids. This time around, it’ll know the charge move Psystrike. While Armored Mewtwo isn’t great for PvE content, it’ll be big in PvP with Psystrike.

Eevee and Pikachu with party hats will also start spawning in the wild, with Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle hatching out of seven kilometer eggs with the hats. There’s also a chance that these Pokémon could be Shiny.

Clone Pokémon from the Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back movie will also be available in the game for the first time. Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise with clone patterns will be available from four-star raids, with Clone Pikachu photobombing any of your snapshots.

On March 1 from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. in your local time, Gengar and Nidorino wearing party hats will show up in raids, with a chance to appear Shiny. You’ll also be able to get up to five free Raid Passes a day during the event period, but you won’t be able to hold more than one of these free passes at once.

Throughout the event period, players will also be able to do two special trades a day.
