Mewtwo will make his debut on Pokemon Go soon Niantic

The Pokémon Go celebration continues as Niantic and The Pokémon Company have announced the release of Mewtwo for trainers to catch. The mobile game's official blog also teases that Legendary Bird Pokémon will show up in Exclusive Raid Battles in the coming weeks.

The special Pokémon Go stadium event in Yokohama, Japan saw the first appearance of Mewtwo in Pokémon Go,  and the rest of the world will get the chance to capture this rare and powerful Pokémon very soon. According to the official Pokémon Go blog, Mewtwo will appear in the world in a new Exclusive Raid Battle feature in the coming weeks Here’s the exact explanation of what an Exclusive Raid Battle is from the Pokémon Go blog.

“Exclusive Raid Battles are similar to existing Raid Battles, with a few notable differences. Exclusive raids will periodically appear at Gyms around the world; however, unlike existing raids, Trainers will be invited to join an Exclusive Raid Battle. To receive an invitation to participate in an Exclusive Raid Battle, Trainers must have successfully completed a raid recently, by defeating the Raid Boss, at the Gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will be taking place. The invitations will include advance warning of when the Exclusive Raid will take place.”

The Legendary Birds Zapdos, Moltres, Articuno and Lugia will all show up in Raid Battles at the same time in the next couple of weeks. From Aug .14 through Aug. 31, Pokémon Go trainers will get a second chance to catch these Legendary Pokémon.

It isn’t clear how exactly these Exclusive Raid Battles will inform trainers but we will update with more information as we get it. In the meantime, check out our guide to Raid Battles to prepare for the upcoming battles.
