After another long break Mewtwo returns to Pokémon GO. Hitting just ahead of GO Fest 2022, which will see all Legendary Pokemon return to raids, Mewtwo will stick around longer than the rest. Players only have a few more days to fight and catch this extremely powerful creature. And with so many changes to the game since it last appeared, it's important to make sure you've updated your counter team. To help you out, here's our Mewtwo raid guide for Pokémon GO, giving you the best counters in July 2022.
Best Mewtwo Raid Counters – July 2022
Most Pokémon GO have faced Mewtwo before, either in one of the original EX Raids or when it returned to the five-star Legendary Raids. This battle will not be so different from the last ones, without any particular twists this time around. So the list of counters isn't all that different, with just a few new faces.
|Pokémon||fast attack||Charged Attack|
|Giratina (Origin)||Shadow Claw||shadow ball|
|Darkrai||To scold||dark pulse|
|Yveltal||To scold||dark pulse|
|Mewtwo||Psycho Cup||shadow ball|
|gengar||Shadow Claw||shadow ball|
Be sure to load up your six Mewtwo counter team with the above and you should be good to go. However, if you have Shadow builds, they will deal more damage, so try to focus on them. You can also opt for a few Mega Pokémon for this battle, choosing either Mega Gengar with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball, Mega Houndoom with Snarl and Foul Play, or Mega Gyarados with Bite and Crunch.

But there's more to taking on this mighty Pokemon than just grabbing the top counters against it. If you want to know how to beat Mewtwo, you need more information, starting with exactly when it will be available in raids.
When do Mewtwo Raids start and end in July 2022
Mewtwo will begin appearing in GO Legendary Pokemon Raids as you begin to prepare for GO Fest 2022, which will see the return of every Legendary Boss released so far on Sunday. Mewtwo Raids will be available starting at 10 a.m. local time on Friday, July 16. He will stay for a week and will leave on Friday July 23 at 10 a.m.
How many players are needed to beat Mewtwo
This has become a trickier issue with recent changes. A strong three-player team with high level counters and best friend bonuses can take him on. However, your rewards increase the faster you win, so more is better. We always recommend at least 5-6 trainers for your Mewtwo raids, but if you can get more, you should. It can be a tough fight, especially if the weather is against you.
What CP for 100% IVs for Mewtwo
Mewtwo has the following CP ranges depending on the weather.
- 2294 to 2387 CP without weather boost
- 2868 to 2984 CP with windy weather
A caught Mewtwo will be level 20 without the windy weather boost that will raise it to level 25.
Can Mewtwo Be Shiny, How To Get Shiny Mewtwo
Yes, Mewtwo can shine in Pokémon GO in July 2022. To get one, you just need to raid and earn as much as you can. Hopefully the list of best Mewtwo counters above helps you accomplish this with less hassle, but getting a shiny Mewtwo might take a dozen or more Raid Battles. Typically the odds are close to one in twenty for a legendary raid, so just grab a group of friends and hit as many as you can during the week and a few of you may get some luck.
And that's our Mewtwo Raid Guide for July 2022, with all the best Pokémon GO counters.
