Rumour: Mewtwo might finally make an appearance in Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO has grown quite a lot in the past couple of months, as developer Niantic Labs is consistently updating the game, making changes, adding new features and in-game events, the most recent example being the third in-game event which started late last month.

With the last of the non-legendary 151 original Pokémon released last month (Ditto) and a rumour circulating around that in December, Gen 2 Pokémon couldbe released, shouldn’t it be time for the original legendary Pokémon to finally make their appearance?

For those who don’t know, the legendary Gen 1 Pokémon are:

  • Articuno
  • Zapdos
  • Moltres
  • Mewtwo
  • Mew

A rumour from multiple sources, as first reported by Pokémon focused YouTuber StraightUpKnives, suggests that there will be a big Christmas event released for the game, even bigger than the Halloween update. The Christmas event will reportedly increase the spawn rate of Ice type Pokémon and many other bonusses, running from 20 to 27 December.

The Christmas event will reportedly set the stage for the release of Mewtwo. If the rumours turn out to be true, Mewtwo will release on New Year’s Eve in Times Square, New York, followed by the other legendary Pokémon in early January.

Now maybe you don’t remember the Pokémon GO launch trailer, but the trailer (embedded at the end of this article) does show Mewtwo in Times Square battling an opponent as hundreds of Pokémon GO players watch on, waiting to capture the legendary Pokémon. Therefore, it is not impossible that the release of Mewtwo in Times Square on the last day of the year has been planned by Niantic all along.

That being said, there is no indication so far if or even how Mewtwo and the other legendary Pokémon could be catchable by South Africans; purchasing a plane ticket to the US isn’t exactly feasible for most just to catch Mewtwo…

As always, remember to take these rumours with a grain of salt until such time as the developer officially reveals both the Christmas event and the legendary Pokémon.
