Rin's Room #12: Mewtwo and other Legendaries in Pokemon Go. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

I still remember when Pokemon Go came out. At the time, it was still summer vacation, and I was able to drive around town and look for Pokemon. It worked amazingly well–no bugs or anything. It seems so long ago–it was released on July 6, 2016. It’s been a year!

Does anyone remember how annoying the location bots were? Sometimes it was so frustrating to go to a gym with my 300 CP Rattata at Level 12 and see trainers who were already at Level 25 with an insanely strong Dragonair. That put me off the game for a while, but Niantic got a lot better at removing the bots and weeding out cheaters. After that, I got a lot more excited to play the game! I especially loved the weird Magikarp hats that were available in the game.

So today I’m writing about Mewtwo! Mewtwo was made available at the Pokemon Go Stadium event in Yokohama yesterday—thousands of trainers came for a chance to catch it. I wish I could’ve been there.  There’s speculation that it’ll be coming to other countries soon. But first, let’s talk about Raid Battles.

Raid Battles happen when a strong Boss Pokemon takes over a gym. The goal is to defeat this Pokemon! If you do, you get rare items and a chance to catch the Pokemon. You’ll probably need the help of other trainers—it’s nearly impossible to do a Raid Battle alone. They’re harder than regular gym battles. There are five levels of difficulty—a Raid Battle ranked at level 5 will be incredibly hard and you’ll probably need a lot of trainers joining in to help out. I really like how Niantic designed this system because it forces you to go out and meet other trainers who are also trying to catch rare Pokemon.

Honestly, one of my favorite things about Pokemon Go is that it makes you interact with people. You could be walking down the road or scoping out a gym and suddenly meet your new best friend! Unless they’re on a different team, and then you’ve just met your new lifelong rival. Most games are designed to be played on a console that won’t move around anywhere, so you often just get stuck inside for hours grinding at it. No human interaction–your social skills kind of start to wither away! But Pokemon Go has always been revolutionary because it’s the first mobile game that actually fosters more interaction between people, neighbors, and communities. It’s always heartwarming to read people who post about how they’ve made new family friends and became closer with their neighbors as a result of the game. In fact, one guy even told me that he was able to spend more time with his son because of Pokemon Go. He was able to relive his memories of one of the best games in history,  introduce his son to the legacy of Pokemon, and spend actual time hunting down Pokemon while spending real quality time together.

I wish I could play Pokemon Go with my mom and dad! Though they’d probably dismiss that idea and tell me to play with my younger brothers. It seems awesome to be able to play video games as a family-bonding activity. I think that once I have older kids, I’ll be the cool mom who plays video games with them and embarrasses them in front of all their friends. “Hey,” their friends will ask. “Why does your mom play video games?”

Aw yeah. Cool mom.

Anyways, back to the story. Whenever a Raid Battle is available, you’ll receive a notification from within your app. There’ll be a countdown that tells you when the Raid Boss will hatch from its egg. This is the cool part: that Raid Egg might hatch a rare Pokemon. Currently, the three famous bird Pokemon from the Kanto region are available for capture, as well as Lugia. Japan just received Mewtwo, so it seems pretty safe to say that the States will be able to catch him too.

Here’s the catch: the Raid Battle for Mewtwo is exclusive. That means it’s invite only! To get an invite, you have to have previously won a Raid at the same gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will be taking place.

For now, we’ll have to settle for Lugia, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, who are all available at certain Raid Battles until the end of August. If you haven’t caught them yet, you should open your app and try your luck! Just make sure that you’ve charged your phone all the way–Pokemon Go is notorious for draining battery insanely quickly!

  4. Firstly, Mewtwo is my favourite Pokemon of all time. I don’t play Pokemon Go because I have yet to own a phone that meets the basic app requirements, but I do keep up with news about the Pokemon Go game. I am really glad that Mewtwo has been added to Pokemon Go. I have awaited this day for a long time. The raid battles seem pretty interesting. I can’t wait to experience catching a Mewtwo in Pokemon GO. The other legendaries are important too, but Mewtwo is number 1.

    Mine is Mega Charizard!!! He beat Mewtwo in the red version I think. I have not played the game for a while now.

    Finally, Mewtwo made an appearance! Only downside: it looks hard to catch. But I guess that’s the allure of Mewtwo (and those other legendaries). If people could catch them easily then having them is not a big deal.

    I have never played Pokemon before. In fact it was so annoying when i saw many people gathered around in one place and i asked what was happening and they said they were Pokemon Go players. Right now though i am curious to know who or what mewtwo is and find out about other legendaries. I am becoming a phone game addict, i might as well add Pokemon Go. Hahaha speaking of playing with your parents or kids, it will be hilarious to see my parents drive around to try to catch Pokemon.

    I really love Pokemon! I remember this Mewtwo which is really so rare and also very powerful psychic Pokemon. Whenever I have these and also one of the three birds, i’m confident I would win!

    Those mythical birds have nothing om Mewtwo. Unless of course they can resist Psychic attacks which I doubt they could.
