PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

Confusion Future Sight is Armored Mewtwo's only STAB moveset.

Dynamic Punch is also a good move and can be useful for gym clearing. Stick with Confusion for higher DPS and EPS.

PVE Overview

Mewtwo's power-dampening armor significantly holds it back. Armored Mewtwo's Attack is equal to Girafarig, Poliwrath, and Sandslash. It will likely see as much use any any of those Pokemon despite its impressive bulk.

Dynamic Punch is an upgrade over traditional Mewtwo's Focus Blast, though you'll definitely want to stick to Fighting-types for that job.

Unless there's a way to unlock Mewtwo's full potential in the future, the best use of Armored Mewtwo is to transfer it for additional candy to Power Up the real deal.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Confusion + Rock Slide and Dynamic Punch or Earthquake

Confusion is the primary fast move for Armored Mewtwo, which also takes advantage of STAB. Iron Tail is a bad move for PvP. 

Rock Slide is preferred for its coverage and relatively lower 45 energy cost, which also makes it the ideal choice to bait shields. Dynamic Punch is an excellent Fighting-type move that costs 50 energy and also covers Mewtwo's weakness to Dark-type opponents. Earthquake and Future Sight both cost a steep 65 energy, but the former provides wide coverage while the latter takes advantage of STAB. Generally speaking, the Psychic-type damage from Mewtwo's fast moves makes Future Sight somewhat redundant. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: N/A / 5

Currently Armored Mewtwo can only be obtained from raids, which means it's impossible to obtain one with less than the 1500 CP cap of Great League, even if traded. 

Ultra League: 4 / 5

Armored Mewtwo is blessed with a very diverse and powerful moveset in PvP, and with very good defensive stats, it has the bulk needed to perform well. Unfortunately a weakness to Ghost-type attacks makes it difficult to deal with the ubiquitous Giratina in Ultra League, and the unextraordinary energy generation from Confusion means Armored Mewtwo will also have a hard time dealing with Dark-types that try to beat Giratina. While on paper Armored Mewtwo is ranked quite high, in practice it's only good when not at a type disadvantage. The difficulty of playing with a slow Confusion should also be noted, as overtapping an extra Confusion when the charge move is needed could turn a win into a loss. 

Master League: 4 / 5

Just in like Ultra League, Armored Mewtwo has the same issue dealing with Giratina, though Master League doesn't feature as many Dark-type contenders. With a max CP of 3187, Armored Mewtwo actually falls a bit short of the stats that many other Pokemon have in this league, however its strong moveset still allows it to have a solid overall win ratio. In general most Steel, Psychic, and Dark-types perform quite well against Armored Mewtwo in this league, but a much longer list of victims all bow down to Armored Mewtwo's impressive ~80% overall win rate. The choice of maxing out a legendary for PvP is up to you, but this one is definitely one of the coolest looking ones.
