Mewtwo Best Moveset Pokemon GO can help new Mewtwo-trainers unlock this Pokemon's true power.

Mewtwo is one of the strongest psychic-types on the Pokemon GO battling scene right now. Obviously, this makes it quite the boon for trainers to pick up on the heels of this year's annual Pokemon GO Fest event. Mewtwo has been featured as an ending prize in quite a few big-name events—and it really is no wonder why. With a CP ceiling of over 4000, this Pokemon makes for a difficult opponent.

As a pure psychic-type, Mewtwo's best moves are going to be mostly psychic, themselves. While its exact move match-up depends mostly on what it will be used for, here is an overview of what moves trainers should be looking to keep.

The best quick moves include Psycho Cut or Confusion. Both of these are fine and provide decent damage in battle. However, it should be noted that Confusion does outperform Psycho Cut with an additional 5 DPS—15 to the latter's 10.

The best-charged moves include Psystrike, Hyper Beam, Psychic, and Shadow Ball. Psystrike, Shadow Ball, and Hyper Beam are exclusively Elite TM moves, so if your Mewtwo doesn't have any of those then it may just be time to work your way up the GO Battle ranks. Psystrike is the best choice overall with an astonishing 47 DPS. Following behind this is Hyper Beam at 40, Psychic at 39, and Shadow Ball at 33.

Overall, the best moveset for Mewtwo is the quick move Confusion and the charged move Psystrike—or Psychic if Psystrike isn't available.

Mewtwo has a CP ceiling of 4,178. Its attack stat is 300, defense is 182, and stamina is 214.
