Players will also get two additional raid passes during the hour of the raid. It means players can get three raid passes during that day. Mewtwo returning to raids on October 8, 2019, will feature a special move Psytrike.


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

Apart from Mewtwo Raid Hour, legendary fire Pokemon Moltres will appear in raids on October 19, 2019, from 11 am to 2 pm in Hokkaido, Japan. The upcoming raid event is taking place to compensate for the raid event, which was expected to take place last year in Japan, but could not happen due to an earthquake.
