In celebration of the newest Pokemon movie Pokemon: Mewto Strikes Back - Evolution on Netflix, the Armored Mewto Event brings to life cloned Pokémon for a limited time. Here are all the Clone Pokémon in Pokémon Go and how you can catch them.

All Clone Pokémon in Pokémon Go

Available now until Mar. 2, Clone Pokémon are distinctive counterparts to preexisting Pokémon. Currently, only four Clone Pokémon have been released and they are:

  • Cloned Venusaur
  • Cloned Charizard
  • Cloned Blastoise
  • Cloned Pikachu

The clone Pikachu will only appear in #GOsnapshot during the event. To find the Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise clones, players must participate in the four star raids. Pokemon spawn throughout the event and are easy to spot due to their cosmetic differences. As an added incentive to catch these special Pokemon, each of the clones (excluding Pikachu) have a known attack, something they could only learn during Community Days. The rare attacks are:

  • Frenzy Plant for Cloned Venusaur 
  • Blast Burn for Cloned Charizard 
  • Hydro Cannon for Cloned Blastoise

In total, Mewto has cloned 24 Pokemon including Squirtle, Pidgeot, Vulpix, Ninetails, Psyduck and Rapidash to name a few. Because the event is in its early stages, Niantic may release new clones during the event or in future events.
