To celebrate the 2020 Pokémon Day and upcoming Netflix release of Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back, Pokémon Go is introducing Clone Pokémon. Clone Pokémon are a new type of Pokémon that you can catch that differ cosmetically from the original ones. As of now, only four clone Pokémon are set to arrive in the game, including Clone Charizard and Clone Pikachu. As per the anime, however, there are many other Clone Pokémon, and we have to wait to see if Niantic chooses to bring them all to the game.

Clone Pokémon were first introduced in the Pokémon lore with the launch of the movie Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back as creatures made by the legendary Pokémon. Even though these Pokémon are called Clones, they look quite different from the original ones. In the movie, we also saw that Clone Pokémon are stronger than the original ones, but we aren't sure if Niantic will take the same approach in Pokémon Go.

Even though just five Clone Pokémon are coming to the game, it's still an amazing event for the game and we could see more Clone Pokémon in the future.

Clone Pokémon will start appearing in Pokémon Go between February 25 and March 2. However, there is a chance that Clone Pokémon can also reappear in other events, although we hope that they are also accompanied by other Clone Pokémon.

Here is how you can find Clone Pokémon in Pokémon Go:

  • Cloned Venusaur: available in four-star raids
  • Cloned Charizard: available in four-star raids
  • Cloned Blastoise: available in four-star raids
  • Cloned Pikachu: will appear in capture screen of other Pokémon

Additionally, the previously released Armored Mewtwo will also appear in raids during the event.
