Pokemon Go : Two additional raid passes will be given to players during Mewtwo Raid Hour October 2019

Mewtwo Legendary Raid Hour was scheduled to take place on September 18, 2019, but due to some technical issues, it could not happen. Earlier, Niantic postponed the Mewtwo Legendary Raid hour to October 8, 2019.

Today, Niantic has announced that players will get two additional raid passes during the hour of the raid. It means players can get three raid passes during that day. Niantic has done this to make up for the cancellation of the Mewtwo Legendary Raid Hour, which was supposed to take place last week. Mewtwo will return to raids on October 8 featuring a special move Psystrike.


Mewtwo is coming to raids on October 8, 2019, from 6 pm to 7 pm in your local time zone. Mewtwo is a psychic-type Pokemon and is weak against strong Dark-type, Bug-Type & Ghost-type Pokemon. Best counters of Mewtwo are the following: Houndoom, Gengar, Mewtwo, Tyranitar, Origin Giratina, Absol, and Weavile.

Last year’s Stardust Blast event started on November 6 and stayed live until November 13. So, according to the leaked data, this year’s Stardust Blast event is expected to arrive early. But we should take this information with a grain of salt and wait for Niantic’s official announcement.

Last year’s Moltres Raid event was postponed in Japan due to an earthquake. But since then, it never came back to light again.
