Pokemon Go : Mewtwo Raid Hour Schedule, Timings, Best Counters and Guide

Mewtwo Legendary Raid Hour was scheduled to take place on September 18 but could not happen due to technical issues. Earlier, Niantic postponed Mewtwo Raid Hour to October 8, 2019, to make up postponement of the previous month’s Raid Hour.

Mewtwo Raid Hour for today is scheduled to take place from 6 pm to 7 pm in your local time zone. Mewtwo is one of the strongest Psychic-type attackers in Pokemon Go. So this raid hour is a good opportunity for players to add Mewtwo to their Pokedex.
