Offensive Moves Explanation

Movesets with Confusion will do more damage than those with Psycho Cut, but the latter is easier to dodge with and provides more energy for Charge Moves. Use Psycho Cut when Psychic is resisted, the the charge move is weather boosted, or when the charge move is doubly SE.

  • Psycho Cut + Shadow Ball is ideal against Psychic-type Pokemon when Ghost is super effective and Psychic is not. Confusion + Shadow Ball is Mewtwo’s best neutral DPS and ideal against Ghosts.

  • Psychic makes Mewtwo the best Psychic attacker. Pair with Confusion for the highest DPS pure Psychic moveset.

  • Ice Beam makes Mewtwo the top ranked Ice-type attacker considering all other current options have a much lower attack stat.

  • Thunderbolt places Mewtwo just behind Raikou and Zapdos as one of the top Electric attackers in the game.

  • Flamethrower Mewtwo is outclassed by several alternative Fire-types, but it's boosted if the weather is clear.

  • Focus Blast is ideal for gyms against all those Blissey and Snorlax. However, there are much better options for Fighting-type DPS.

  • Hyper Beam is definitely Mewtwo’s worst charge move and one of the best uses of a Charged TM. Note: This move is legacy.

Rating Explanation

The king of Pokemon GO: Mewtwo is here. It's stats are strong enough that it once persuaded trainers to take off work and pursue EX eligible gyms for a chance at capturing the Genetic Pokemon.

Mewtwo sits solidly among the highly ranked legandary Pokemon. Mewtwo was the first Pokemon to break the 4k CP threshold and earning itself a 9% nerf to all stats. Despite this, Mewtwo boasts the largest attack stat in the game before Deoxys and the largest bulk among any Psychic types.

Mewtwo has many claims with the highest Psychic-type DPS now and for the immediate future, even with a horrible Psychic move, Psychic. Additionally, Shadow Ball Mewtwo provides a great 2-bar generalist Charge Move, placing it as a top raid counter even when not SE or STAB.

Mewtwo's introduction to regular tier 5 raids (as what is essentially a tier 6 raid) added 3 new elemental charge moves to Mewtwo's repertoire, furthering its utility and type-coverage. Flamethrower, Ice Beam, and Thunderbolt + Mewtwo's high attack stat give the Psychic-type Pokemon the ability to act as a de facto Fire, Ice, or Electric type.

Focus Blast also puts up a reasonable Fighting-type impression with higher bulk and better defensive coverage for knocking down Normal-types like Blissey and others commonly found in gyms.

For its continued use and versatility, Mewtwo tops our rankings and remains a great investment.
