Pokémon GO gamers in Japan were in for a special treat this past weekend. The lethal Mewtwo appeared as a raid boss during a Pikachu Outbreak event in Yokohama, as per Kotaku. This marks the fifth legendary pocket monster to be released by Niantic Labs albeit only available in the Land of the Rising Sun. Initially, Articuno and Lugia were made available to players at recent Pokémon GO festivities. Since then, the game developers added Moltres (July 31-August 7) and Zapdos (August 7-14) to the popular app.
Check out the tweets detailing successful Mewtwo captures below and stay tuned for more Pokémon GO announcements regarding legendary creatures.
