Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is on par with Psycho Cut for quick moves; the former offers higher DPS and the latter offers faster energy gains and easier dodgability.

  • Shadow Ball is clearly superior to Psychic. Despite lacking STAB, its base power is similar to Psychic for half the energy cost and goes resisted by only 2 types of Pokemon (Normal and Dark). Shadow Ball does as well as Psychic against Fighting and Poison-types while also giving Mewtwo an edge over other Psychic-type Pokemon.

  • Focus Blast is a viable, alternative option for countering Normal-type Pokemon such as Blissey and Snorlax. Its power rivals that of Machamp.

  • Hyper Beam is definitely Mewtwo’s worst charge move. TM if possible.

Rating Explanation:

Mewtwo was originally proffered to top all offense charts and trivialize the use of any other attacker in the game. Niantic suddenly decreasing all of its stats by 9% put a sharp end to that. Rather than breaking the game, Mewtwo weighs heavily upon it.

While Mewtwo is still a top neutral DPS option with power rivaling  that of Dragonite, it is by no means “broken.” Like Dragonite, Mewtwo will excel in many matchups but will often fall short of more optimized counters. However, unlike Dragonite, Mewtwo’s Psychic, Ghost, and Fighting-type attacks offer it a variety of optimal matchups.

Mewtwo’s powerful Psychic-type quick moves helps out against Poison and Fighting-type raid bosses, countering them harder than they ever have been before. Mewtwo’s resistance to Psychic-type attacks in concert with Shadow Ball’s raw power make Psychic-type raid bosses bend the knee to their new Mewtwo King. Even the mighty Blissey quivers before Mewtwo’s power as Mewtwo resists Blissey’s paltry Zen Headbutts while obliterating it at near Machamp speeds with Focus Blast. Needless to say, there is now a meta before Mewtwo and a meta after Mewtwo.

Raid Boss Counters
SupremeOverall best counter always. Almost always top in DPS and very high in survivability. The Pokemon you want for the job.
GoodThe next best if you don’t have Supreme Pokemon.
TankWhen you’re down to your 5-6th Pokemon and need to hold the line and not suck while doing it. Tanks always have more survivability than Supreme, but less DPS than Good.
GlassMore DPS than Good with significantly less survivability. Note: Less DPS than Supreme.
