Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to get Mewtwo

Mewtwo, the iconic Legendary Pokémon with a timeless design, has made its way into the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, delighting fans. This Psychic-type powerhouse first captured hearts in Pokémon Red and Blue during the ’90s and remains a beloved classic. In this guide, by radiotimes, we’ll show you how to obtain Mewtwo in these latest games, along with important details on when and how to engage in Tera Raid Battles.

When to Participate in Mewtwo Tera Raids

The Mewtwo Tera Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are available from September 1st, 2023, at 1:00 AM BST, until September 18th, 2023, at 12:59 AM BST. To catch Mewtwo, marked with the Mightiest Mark, you must defeat it within this time frame. Keep in mind that the Mewtwo Tera Raid is a challenging seven-star battle, requiring a significant level of progress in the game.

How to Acquire Mewtwo

To add Mewtwo to your Pokémon roster, you must engage in a seven-star Tera Raid Battle against this formidable Psychic-type Pokémon. After successfully defeating Mewtwo, you’ll have the opportunity to capture it, along with the coveted Mightiest Mark. While you can join the Mewtwo Tera Raid Battle with other players online, if you prefer to face the challenge solo or with friends, you must have completed the game first.

Unlocking Seven-Star Tera Raids

To access seven-star Tera Raids, you must complete the main storyline of the game, revisit and conquer all the Gyms, and emerge victorious in the Ace Tournament. Following these accomplishments, participate in ten different four and five-star Tera Raids. Once completed, you’ll begin encountering black crystals on the in-game map, signaling the availability of high-level Tera Raids. Don’t forget to stay updated by checking the latest Poké Portal news from the in-game menu for event participation.

Best Strategies Against Mewtwo

Mewtwo’s Psychic-type nature makes it vulnerable to Bug, Ghost, and Dark-type Pokémon and attacks. Dark-type Pokémon, in particular, can resist Psychic-type attacks. Avoid employing Fighting or Poison-type Pokémon, as they are weak against Psychic attacks. Additionally, Psychic attacks don’t deal significant damage to Psychic and Steel-type Pokémon.

Scizor, being a Bug and Steel-type Pokémon, is an excellent choice against Mewtwo. You can encounter Scizor and other formidable Pokémon to use against Mewtwo during ongoing Tera Raid events like “Prepare the Offence” and “A Show of Supporters” running alongside the Mewtwo event from September 1st to the 18th. These raids also reward you with valuable items, including Exp Candy.

Another potent counter to Mewtwo is Mew itself. In a seven-star Tera Raid Battle, Mew receives a substantial stat boost. Ensure that one of your team members has a Mew with the optimal Tera-type (Dark, Bug, or Ghost) for a competitive edge.

Obtaining Mew

Getting your hands on Mew in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is relatively straightforward. Enter the code “GETYOURMEW” into the Mystery Gift section of the in-game menu, connect online, and you’ll receive your very own Mew. This opportunity is available until September 18th, 2023, at 3:59 PM BST. Each Mew you obtain is at Level 5 and comes equipped with moves like Swift, Light Screen, Life Dew, and an additional move tied to the Tera Type provided.
