Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Movesets with Confusion will do more damage than those with Psycho Cut, but the latter is easier to dodge with.

  • Shadow Ball is Mewtwo’s best option for raids and neutral DPS.

  • Focus Blast is ideal for gyms and all those Blissey and Snorlax.

  • Psychic slightly wins out in specialist matchups, but is usually sub-optimal.

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

Say hello to the king of GO: the Mewtwo king. (Heh, get it?)

Sitting on its throne at the top of the neutral DPS charts, Mewtwo is highly sought after for just that reason. Not only is Mewtwo the optimal counter to numerous raid bosses weak to Psychic or Ghost, but it also slots into just about any raid lineup with its Shadow Ball movesets. Conversely, a Focus Blast Mewtwo effortlessly wipes out the numerous Fighting-weak defenders found in gyms.

With the imminent release of Groudon and Kyogre, Mewtwo finds itself challenged by legendary Pokemon that boast similar power but greater bulk. Maybe this is a small consolation for the players who spent copious amounts of money trying unsuccessfully to get an EX raid pass.
