Pokemon Go just unleashed Mewtwo via a trio of legendary raids today at the game’s Yokohama, Japan event. All the Raids situated in close proximity around the event location and each raid has a whopping 10 hours on the clock.
It’s the first time players have been able to catch Mewtwo, the genetically-engineered Pokémon. He was previously teased right at the end of Pokémon Go’s legendary raids trailer.
Two Youtube stars are on site, Trainer Tips and Mystic7, and we’re sharing both of their tweets. If you’re looking forward to Mewtwo fight footage, head over at their channels for video.
Mystic’s tweet shows an in-game Raid screen with a large number of players going towards the seating and standing area.

TRAINER TIPS TWEET
Nick’s tweet shows a close up of a Raid screen. Evidently this is not a Shiny Mewtwo, but it can appear for some Trainers in the Capture Bonus Challenge.

Additionally, PokeJungle has tweeted that Mewtwo is appearing at all Stadium PokeStops. What a sight to see!

It’s not all good news, however. Earlier today, the planned livestream event – where Mewtwo was presumably going to be revealed – was cancelled at the last moment. There have also been reports of connection problems – likely due to the huge number of phones in use within a small location.
But, in the last five minutes, someone has managed to report a Mewtwo being caught.
