The popular creature is currently available for players to battle against in raids until the end of July.

Sporting much higher defensive stats than its armor less counterpart, the Go version of Armored Mewtwo is a very tanky enemy that will require some patience and power in order to deplete its health completely. However, this version of the polarizing creature is a psychic type, so raid parties will see much more success in defeating the creature if they utilize dark, ghost, and bug type creatures. 

Everyone who participated in a Go raid that is successful in defeating the creature will earn the chance to catch the powerful and awesome looking boss character. 

Pokemon Go players will have until 1 PM PST/ 3 PM CST/ 4 PM EST on Wednesday, July 31st to battle Armored Mewtwo in a raid and catch the signature creature before it is no longer available in the mobile game for the foreseeable future.
