Armored Mewtwo Pokemon GO: Everything You Need to Know

Armored Mewtwo is a psychic type Pokémon that is a more defensive version of the normal Mewtwo. The normal version boasts a 182 defense, while the armored version packs a 278 statistic. It does deliver a much lower attack than the original however.

The boss is weak to Bug, Dark and Ghost type moves, and packs a widely different moves set than the normal Mewtwo. It's best moves are Future Sight (Psychic) and Earthquake (Ground) and uses steel, rock and fighting moves as well, making it solid against most other Pokémon.

Look for the renowned boss to make an appearance in the game on Feb. 25.
