Shadow Mewtwo Raid Guide | Pokémon GO Hub

Shadow Mewtwo is back!

It will appear in Tier 5 Shadow Raids from Saturday, March 30, 2024, to Sunday, March 31, 2024, local time, during the Team GO Rocket Takeover Event. Shadow Raids can only be done using in-person raid passes. Shadow Mewtwo can be shiny from Shadow raids!

Shadow Mewtwo can be caught with the following CP values, with an IV floor of 6/6/6:

  • 2220 – 2387 CP (no weather boost, 100% Mewtwo at Level 20)
  • 2776 – 2984 CP (windy weather, 100% IV Mewtwo at Level 25)

Shadow Mewtwo is a pure Psychic type and is weak to Dark, Bug and Ghost type attacks. Shadow Mewtwo is an immensely difficult tier 5 raid due to the Shadow Raid mechanism. You will need to be well prepared with top counters, correct movesets, powered up Pokémon, and most importantly, Purified Gems.

Communication will be key for this raid! You will want to plan not only your Mega Pokémon team positions, and counters, but also your used of Purified Gems, so be sure you communicating with your fellow trainers.

We would suggest groups of 6+ for trainers with top counters that are maxed out, armed with Purified Gems, or 8-10+ for lower level trainers and those without ideal counters. Purified Gems are a must!

Utilising Party Play!, as well as Mega Pokémon, will be key to helping defeat this tricky boss with less trainers.

Shadow Raid Information & Advice

As a shadow raid, Mewtwo will hit harder than ever before, so make sure your counters are powered up, have the right moveset, and aren’t weak to the raid bosses moves. These raids are a tricky group task for even the most prepared trainers, and you will need Purified Gems to defeat them. Shadow Raid Bosses will grow enraged as you battle them, boosting their attack and defence.

You will need to subdue Shadow Mewtwo using Purified Gems, a new item that can be assembled from Shadow Shards.

Shadow Shards are mysterious gem pieces that may be dropped by Team GO Rocket grunts, leaders, and from Shadow Raids. You will need to gather enough shards to use Professor Willow’s newly invented Shard Refiner, and in return you’ll be rewarded with a Purified Gem. Be sure to have collected as many as you can before you attempt a Shadow Mewtwo raid, as without them you won’t be able to return it to its normal, non-enraged state.

There are multiple ways Purified Gems can assist your battle against enraged Shadow Raid Bosses:

  • When you use a Purified Gem during a Shadow Raid, the enraged Shadow Raid Boss’s attack and defence will be lowered temporarily. This can give you the opening you need to take them down.
  • You and your fellow Trainers can use more than one Purified Gem during a Shadow Raid. If used at the same time, their effects will stack.
  • If enough Purified Gems are used, the enraged Shadow Raid Boss will be subdued—returned to its non-enraged state—which might give you the edge you need to defeat it!

Purified Gems will show in the bottom left corner of the raid battle when you are able to use them, so be sure to communicate with your raid group to stack their effects!

Notes 💡

Shadow Mewtwo did not get a stat buff like other shadow raids, and is contrary to the 57645 CP shown in the promo video. Raid lasts 300 seconds. You get 3 guaranteed XL candy. It counts towards Battle Legend medal. It does not count towards the Ultra Hero medal. Shiny shadow Mewtwo has been enabled. IV floor appears to be 6. It appears it is 8 gems needed to subdue Mewtwo, like the T3 shadow raids.

Best Shadow Mewtwo Counters

Here are the best Pokémon to use against a Mewtwo raid boss. Being weak to three different types, Mewtwo’s counters table is diverse and shows the strongest Pokémon to use against the raid boss. Try to pick from the top end of this list, and ensure they have the necessary move-sets, and are powered up.

We would highly recommend the use of Mega Pokémon in Shadow Mewtwo raids. They provide not only greater damage output, but also boost Pokémon of the same typing in the raid. We would suggest discussing your counter choices with your fellow trainers, and plan Mega Pokémon, and their position in your team accordingly.

If you have a group of 6 for example, one person have their mega in slot 1, the next slot 2, the next slot 3 etc, so you can try to keep the mega boost going throughout the raid.

While Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up, we have included the top Shadow Pokémon you can use against Shadow Mewtwo. Ensure you no longer have Frustration on these Pokémon before considering adding them to your team – take advantage of the current Team Rocket event to make your Pokémon forget Frustration. If you have any of these as an option, while they may take more damage than non-shadow Pokémon, they will also deal more.
