Wondering what moves can Mewtwo learn? Here is the list of moves this Pokemon can learn in this selected generation. Sort and organize the learnset by move type, category, accuracy, and power. Bolded moves will gain the same-type attack bonus (STAB) if this Pokemon uses them.
Category Filter: Filter movelist to show only Physical, Special, or Status moves
Extended Move Details:Additional move information such as Risk versus Reward Statistics or Move power versus specific type-matchups
Type-matchup: Sort through and determine which moves would best work versus an opponent of the typing you select.
Note: The damage listed here under Versus is not actually calculated using the in-game damage formula. It is simply calculated using typing weaknesses and resistances from the selected type-matchup modifier along with STAB (if applied) to help sort through and give a general idea as to how powerful certain moves might be towards that selected typing after modifiers are applied. Several moves listed here may have additional effects that might alter actual damage output which are not factored on this specific list. Use damage calculators to find actual damage amounts.
