Pokemon Go Player Acquired The Mew Family

Mewtwo, the Legendary Pokemon that even has a movie dedicated to its origins, is one of the most unique Pokemon that has ever existed in the Pokemon Universe. That is if we exclude the father of all Pokemon, Arceus.

In Pokemon Go, Mewtwo has somewhat been difficult to obtain, and its other forms have proven to be among the most desired forms to own by Pokemon Go players. We all know Mewtwo and how this Pokemon was created, but let’s remind ourselves a little bit.

I have acquired the real Mew family

Mewtwo is a Pokemon that has been created by something unspeakable, a genetic manipulation. Now, we all know how that goes. While everyone was hoping for a Pokemon with a legendary power to have a small part of humanity, that soon turned south, and Mewtwo ended up being a very powerful Pokemon with a desire for destruction. Later on, the world learned that Mewtwo is a clone of Mew, another Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go.

Several forms are available in Pokemon Go, and some players have managed to complete their Mew family (notice how we say Mew). This collection includes Mew, Shiny Mew, Armored Mewtwo, Mewtwo, Shiny Mewtwo, and Shadow Mewtwo. We have a nearly completed list too, but all that we are currently missing is Armored Mewtwo. Kudos to the ones that own each available Mewtwo and Mew form in Pokemon Go.

For reference, here are the dates when every available Mewtwo has been released in Pokemon Go:

  • Regular Mewtwo – August 14th, 2017 (at the start of Pokemon Go Stadium)
  • Armored Mewtwo – July 10th, 2019
  • Shiny Mewtwo – September 16th, 2019 (during the A Unova Unveiling event)
  • Shadow Mewtwo – July 26th, 2020 (during the Pokemon Go Fest 2020)

A fun fact: some Trainers joke around that the Transform Pokemon, known as Ditto, belongs to this family due to the uncanny resemblance.

  1. This isn’t new. As soon as shiny Mew was released, that completed my collection as well. Now have one of each with all available charged attacks like me, then I’ll be impressed.

  2. That’s not the whole family. He would still need a xs and xl from back at those dates of each. And now would have to add xxs and xxl. Along with be more impressed if he had a shundo or a lucky shiny. There’s more combos then just the basics. I collect all these with each pokemon along with #1 rank for each league of that certain pokemon. Now that’s a challenge
