Trading May Be the Only Way

Unfortunately, Armored Mewtwo was only available to capture during a limited-time event in 2019. Although there is high demand for the character, trading with someone else is one way to get it. Trading a Legendary character will cost you at least 1 million Stardust unless you befriend the trader. If the friendship lasts for at least 90 days, then the cost goes alwn to 40,000 Stardust.

How to Trade for Mewtwo

Keep in mind that you will spend a lot of your Stardusts on getting the Armored Mewtwo because it is a Legendary character. However, that’s if, by some miracle, you find someone willing to trade the Armored Mewtwo with you. You and your friend will have to agree to a Special Trade, and keep in mind that Special Trades only open once each day.

Not surprisingly, several Pokémon players are selling this particular Pokémon on eBay, but be aware, they’re charging real money.

Both the Normal and Armored Mewtwo pretty much function the same way; the only key difference between them is that the Armored version of Mewtwo has a distinctive design. The Armored Mewtwo does wonders for you on defense but isn’t as potent offensively as the Normal version.

When it comes to battle, the normal Mewtwo can dish out attacks effortlessly but takes a lot of punishment. The Amormed has a much studier style, but it is, unfortunately, weak at dishing out attacks effectively. Regular Mewtwo is the best fit for Raid Battles, while the Armored Mewtwo is more reliable for Trainer Battles.

The Armored Mewtwo is impossible to find, especially, so the only way to get one is by trading with another player who already has it himself.
