Mewtwo coming to Pokémon Go in the coming weeks with new Raid Battle
After unleashing Mewtwo into Pokemon Go at the Pokémon GO Stadium event in Yokohama, Japan today, Niantic has announced just how everyone else will get their hands on him.
This won’t be your normal raid battle, grant you’re versing Mewtwo but there’s a little bit more to it than just showing up at a random gym and hoping he’s there. We’ll let Niantic explain;
Exclusive Raid Battles are similar to existing Raid Battles, with a few notable differences. Exclusive raids will periodically appear at Gyms around the world; however, unlike existing raids, Trainers will be invited to join an Exclusive Raid Battle. To receive an invitation to participate in an Exclusive Raid Battle, Trainers must have successfully completed a raid recently, by defeating the Raid Boss, at the Gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will be taking place. The invitations will include advance warning of when the Exclusive Raid will take place, giving them ample time to coordinate with other Trainers before taking on the powerful Raid Boss.
Niantic also promising that ‘other powerful Pokemon may also hatch from raid eggs found at Exclusive Raid Battles over the next several weeks. Ho-Oh anyone?
There’s more good news for those who missed out on Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Lugia as well. All four of these Legendary Pokemon will now be available in raid battles from now until August 31st.
