Adding a legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo to a trainer’s collection is the stuff that dreams are made of. This Psychic pocket monster is one of the most powerful in the entire franchise and many players will want to add it to their rosters. But how can they get their hands on this elusive creature?

The main way to catch a Mewtwo in pokemon go is through five-star raids. The Legendary Pokémon appears in these battles during limited windows based on events. Currently, it’s only appearing in five-star raids from June 16 to July 1 (though this excludes Armored Mewtwo). When the Pokemon shows up, players can battle it and then capture it with Premiere Balls.

It’s not an easy task though. The Legendary is weak to Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type Pokemon as well as moves that deal damage to Psychic. Players should have a party filled with these types to give themselves the best chance of beating Mewtwo.

Alternatively, players can try their luck at finding a Mewtwo in the wild. The elusive creature can be found on occasion in the Sinnoh Region and is among the game’s rarest critters.

However, catching a Mewtwo in the wild requires patience and a lot of time spent on the game’s various quests. Players will also need to compete in a few five-star raids and a special event or two in order to get their hands on the Legendary. The same goes for the other two variants of Mewtwo, Shiny and Shadow.
