‘Pokemon Go’ Mewtwo: Max CP & Stats


Mewtwo was released as a raid boss for the Pokemon Stadium event in Yokohama, Japan on August 14. In the near future, Mewtwo will also be available via Pokemon Go‘s exclusive raids. Wondering what the stats and max CP are for Legendary Mewtwo in Pokemon Go? Here’s the information that will be helpful to you.

Mewtwo was expected to be so strong that any attacker’s moves would be minimal. But as players discovered when viewing the GAME_MASTER file, Niantic decreased those stats by about 9 percent, so Mewtwo is now a heavy player but won’t neutralize everyone.

Here are the original max CP stats for a Mewtwo that you might catch after a Legendary Raid battle, according to stats gathered by Redditor DontheFirst and GamePress. This is what players were expecting, before the stats were adjusted:

  • Max CP at Level 20: 2720
  • Max CP at Level 30: 4080
  • Max CP at Level 39: 4692
  • Max CP at Level 40: 4760

But with the adjustments as seen in the GAME_MASTER file, the following changed:

  • Attack: 330 –> 300
  • Defense: 200 –> 182
  • Stamina: 212 –> 193

This means the Max CP for Mewtwo is down from 4760 to 3982. 

That means the new Max CP stats for Mewtwo are:

  • Max CP at Level 20: 2275
  • Max CP at Level 30: 3413
  • Max CP at Level 39: 3925
  • Max CP at Level 40: 3982

Mewtwo’s CP is a significant step above Articuno, Zapdos, or Moltres. Just for a comparison, the Max CP at Level 39 for these three legendaries are 2891, 3282, and 3226 respectively.

The highest CP attainable in the game is through Mega Mewtwo Y, with 6856 at Level 40. This is after a mega evolve using Mewtwonite Y. This hasn’t been introduced into the game yet, but gives you another reason to value Mewtwo’s importance in the game. (And this number does not take into account Niantic’s adjustment of Mewtwo’s stats, so it might end up being lower if Mega Mewtwo Y is ever a possibility in Pokemon Go.)

Mewtwo’s optimal movesets are Confusion or Psycho Cut + Shadow Ball, according to GamePress. Its great movesets or Confusion or Psycho Cut + Focus Blast.

What is Mewtwo’s worst charge move? Likely Hyper Beam, so try to TM that if you get a Mewtwo with Hyper Beam.
