Armored Mewtwo Strikes Back!

Recommended Posts

The official Pokémon GO page has announced that Armored Mewtwo can be challenged in Tier 5 raids, from July 10th, 1pm PDT to July 31st, 1pm PDT.

While the Japanese trailer explicitly mentions it is a crossover event with the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back EVOLUTION, this information was missing from the English trailer, presumably because the movie is out in the West yet.

Presently, there is no official mention of this event being tied to the datamined Shadow Pokémon.

 

 

Based on the trailer, it appears Armored Mewtwo can have Ice Beam has it's charged move.
Presently, it is unknown if it'll retain the same stats and same moves as a regular Mewtwo.

1 hour ago, Hello, it's me! said:

and thus the "armor evolution" speculation just got officially debunked

I was under the impression it got debunked when Dynamax was revealed to be a thing ><

I guess people just didn't want to let the idea die huh...

I managed to get an Armored Mewtwo today and got thinking about Pokemon Home.

I wonder if it will keep its Armored form if transferred to Pokemon Home / used in future games. It doesn't actually register as a different form on Pokemon Go, unlike say Castform for example.

That's presuming it is usable in Gen 8 and beyond anytime soon.

Presently, it appears to be a cosmetic change. However, since it was given it's own stats in the gamemaster, and using &costume in the search bar doesn't list it as one. The "no form registered" in Pokédex is another thing to take note of as well, as you described.

It's presently a unique situation: either an alternate form with different stats, with the form not being recorded in Pokédex, or a cosmetic change with separate stats from the original form.
I can't help but to think that Niantic messed up in terms of programming/coding it as one or the other, Wouldn't be their first time messing up after all.

Well in any case, I'm keeping extras *in case it could be transferred*, even though I don't expect it to be able to.
I mean, some Pokémon don't retain their form changes after battle (Castform, Cherrim for example), and I don't expect those alternate forms for those to be transferable too, but without precedent (using Let's Go transfers) as an example, it's hard to know which scenario is correct for sure...
