How To Counter Armored Mewtwo

Hit Its Ghost/Dark Weaknesses

Armored Mewtwo is a pure Psychic type, meaning it has 3 weaknesses: Ghost, Dark, and Bug. Look for one of these 3 types of Pokemon before taking on Mewtwo!

Recommended Pokemon To Counter Mewtwo
Gengar IconGengarGiratinaGiratina (Origin Forme)

Gengar and Origin Forme Giratina are our two main recommendations vs. Armored Mewtwo. Both of them have very high base attack and powerful STAB Ghost-type moves.

Gengar Is Weak To Psychic

Gengar is a Ghost/Poison type, meaning he'll take massive damage from Mewtwo's Future Sight and Confusion moves.

Tyranitar IconTyranitarWeavile IconWeavile

Dark types are also an excellent choice vs. Armored Mewtwo, as they take reduced damage from Psychic moves and deal super-effective damage against Mewtwo!

Watch Out For Super-Effective Moves

Unfortunately, since Armored Mewtwo has more than just Psychic moves, you're still very likely to be hit with a super-effective move if you bring the above two Pokemon. We recommend bringing a pure-ghost type as your primary Pokemon for this fight.
