PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

Movesets with Confusion will do more damage than those with Psycho Cut, but the latter is easier to dodge with and provides more energy for Charge Moves. Use Psycho Cut when Psychic type is resisted, when the charge move is weather boosted, or when the charge move is doubly SE.

  • Psycho Cut + Shadow Ball is ideal against Psychic-type Pokemon when Ghost is super effective and Psychic is not. Confusion + Shadow Ball is Shadow Mewtwo’s best neutral DPS and ideal against Ghosts.

  • Psystrike makes Shadow Mewtwo the best Psychic attacker, standing far above all competition. Pair with Confusion for the highest DPS pure Psychic moveset.

  • Psychic is an acceptable alternative to Psystrike, sporting close overall performance.

  • Ice Beam makes Shadow Mewtwo the top ranked Ice-type attacker considering all other current options have a much lower attack stat.

  • Thunderbolt places Shadow Mewtwo just behind Shadow Raikou, Shadow Magnezone, Shadow Electivitre, and Shadow Zapdos as one of the top Electric attackers in the game.

  • Flamethrower  can't allow Shadow Mewtwo to rival Shadow Moltres, but it's still very viable.

  • Focus Blast is ideal for gyms against all those Blissey and Snorlax. However, there are much better options for Fighting-type DPS.

  • Hyper Beam is definitely Shadow Mewtwo’s worst charge move and one of the best uses of a Charged TM. Note: This move is legacy.

PVE Overview

July 26, 2020; Go Fest. Shadow Mewtwo has been released, and Pokemon Go will never be the same.

Mewtwo was one of the original Pokemon to receive the 9% nerf to Pokemon with a CP over 4,000, and with good reason. At the time, it was one of the absolute strongest overall Pokemon in the game, and could operate in virtually any raid with neutral coverage alone. And now we're returning to those primordial times with Shadow Mewtwo; the new highest-DPS and overall strongest Pokemon in the entire game.
