Mewtwo just broke Pokemon GO

At least one of those has now been rectified, as the legendary Pokémon Mewtwo has been added to the game via a new invite-only Exclusive Raid Battle system.

After three weeks of insane hype where everyone tried to capture legendary birds as quickly as possible, it turns out that we needn't have hastened as much as we did to ensure we collected all three elemental birds plus Lugia before they disappeared for good.

Pokemon GO looks to evolve the standards of their game over time, including recent improvements to gameplay and additional features through updates. There will also be raid eggs at these exclusive raid battle, presumably allowing you to hatch more exclusive Pokémon not available in eggs up to this point. While you had to be at that event to get your chance to catch Mewtwo, that's going to be changing in the near future.

Over the weekend, in Yokohama, Japan, thousands of Pokemon Go players worked together to catch pokemon in a baseball stadium. However, unlike standard raids, to compete, players will need invites. "To receive an invitation to participate in an Exclusive Raid Battle", the post reads, "Trainers must have successfully completed a raid recently, by defeating the Raid Boss, at the Gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will be taking place". Getting Mewtwo into the hands of fans as soon as possible may be a great way to change fans' minds. It's unclear exactly how much time will elapse between the end of a standard Raid and the launch of an Exclusive, but developer Niantic says the victors will have "advance warning". Niantic also released again the other four Legendaries. All throughout August, players have been able to catch other Legendary monsters like Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.
