• Yes trainers, believe what that headline says, Niantic has announced that starting the 10th of July at 1 p.m. PDT, we will be able to fight and capture an Armored Mewtwo! It seems as if the redesign from the Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution movie is coming to the game, as previously discussed in our article on the matter. Rumors abounded about code existing in the background of Pokémon Go, and it is confirmed now with this recent announcement.
