But all the spotlight of this first weekly event is on the Legendary Psychic Type Pokemon Mewtwo, the ultimate reward. Its Attack stats are enormous enough to decimate an entire team of 3 with the right defensive Pokemon at hand. Moreover, this Mewtwo comes directly with its signature move “Psystrike”. Combine it with the primary light attack “Confusion” and you probably have a fearful force to be reckoned with.

So how do you encounter this literal God-tier Pokemon this week? Here are the challenges that you will have to complete throughout 9 set of tasks. Each rewards its own Kanto Pokemon. So keep an eye out for those as well.
