Future Sight Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build is centered on pulling targets with Future Sight and beating them down with attacks to maximize the move's additional damage effect. Teleport will be the complimentary move for the build to give Mewtwo mobility, more damage, and a way to set up Future Sight.
· Muscle Band improves Mewtwo X's attacks through increased damage and attack speed. It also helps the Pokemon to fill up its Mega gauge faster.
· Scope Lens makes Mewtwo X's attacks deadlier by increasing its critical-hit rate and damage.
· Razor Claw gives Mewtwo a decent amount of Attack stat and improves its attack damage whenever it uses a move. Its slow effect also works nicely with Future Sight.
· However, Attack Weight can be a replacement for Scope Lens to maximize Mewtwo's overall damage output.
· For a more defensive build, Razor Claw can be replaced with Focus Band instead.
· Full Heal allows Mewtwo to purge hindrances instantly and become immune to them for a short time, allowing it to continue pummeling targets down.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 4 White Emblems additional HP.
· Equip Emblems that improve Attack or Critical-Hit Rate to further improve Mewtwo X's attacks.
· Sp. Atk., Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build focuses more on attacks, equipping items that will maximize Mewtwo X's attack damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band, Razor Claw, and Scope Lens will work best for the build. The item combination produced the best results for critical-hits while maintaining a high Standard Attack score. It also doesn't require stacking to maximize the damage.

As for alternatives, replacling Scope Lens with Attack Weight would be the ideal choice. The item combination generated the best base Standard Attack results but does require Mewtwo to fully stack Attack Weight first to get the maximum damage boost.


These damage tests are conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode. The results are taken from the Total Damage data.

Psystrike Explanation

Build Explanation
This build revolves around getting close to a target with Teleport and utilizing its increased damage effect, then following up with Psystrike. Mewtwo X will rely mostly on Psystrike as its primary damage source.
· Muscle Band improves Mewtwo X's attacks through increased damage and attack speed. It also helps the Pokemon to fill up its Mega gauge faster.
· Attack Weight gives Mewtwo X a large Attack stat boost, increasing its overall damage output, particularly for Psystrike.
· Weaknes Policy works well with the build's gameplay since Mewtwo X needs to get close to its target to use Psystrike, potentially turning any aggression it receives into more damage. It also gives a decent amount of Attack and HP stats.
· However, Float Stone can be a replacement for Weakness Policy, improving its overall mobility and damage.
· Eject Button gives Mewtwo more mobility on top of Teleport, allowing it to make more creative plays when setting up Psystrike.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Brown Emblems for more damage and 4 White Emblems additional HP.
· Equip Emblems that improve Attack to further improve Mewtwo X's damage.
· Sp. Atk., Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered mainly around Psystrike, equipping items that will maximize its damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band, Attack Weight, and Weakness Policy will produce the best outcome for the build. The item combination generated the second best results but also improves Mewtwo X's attack damage and attack speed simultaneously.

As for alternatives, replacing Weakness Policy with Float Stone would be the best choice. The item combination had the third best results but also improves Mewtwo X's overall mobility.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Future Sight ImageFuture Sight Future Sight allows Mewtwo to pull targets from their team and pummel them down.
Teleport ImageTeleport Teleport provides Mewtwo a repositioning tool to set up Future Sight. It also buffs the Pokemon and makes filling up its Mega gauge faster.

This moveset helps Mewtwo X to easily fill up the Mega gauge and evolve, which is the Pokemon's central gameplay. Future Sight allows Mewtwo X to drag targets to its position and attack them instead of the Pokemon being the one to get close to them, which is a safer option. Teleport allows Mewtwo X's basic attacks to fill up the Mega gauge faster than normal. It also gives Mewtwo X an easy tool to set up Future Sight, giving the Pokemon more control over where targets will be pulled.

Future Sight and Psystrike are Mewtwo X's primary offensive moves but offer distinct tools. Future Sight is mainly a pick-off tool useful during small fights or for hunting opponents since it pulls a target towards Mewtwo X's position. It is purely a single-target move and deals significantly lower initial damage. However, it has the potential to deal more damage thanks to its post-activation effect.

As for Psystrike, it's a typical crowd control move with decent damage. Although it's also a single-target move, it does damage and knock up enemies around the target at the end of the move. However, its cast range is significantly shorter than Future Sight, requiring Mewtwo X to get close as possible to targets first to use it.

On the other hand, Teleport and Recover are Mewtwo X's complimentary moves that can be used offensively and defensively. They also have a direct effect to the Mega gauge, which will be the distinguishing factor. Teleport is best paired with Future Sight because it opens up more ways to set up the move. Moreover, since targets will mostly try to escape after being pulled, Teleport ensures Mewtwo X can easily chase the them down.

In the case of Psystrike, both moves have great synergy with it. Teleport allows Mewtwo X to easily get close to a target and cast Psystrike all while increasing its damage output. It can also be used while firing Psytrike for creative plays. As for Recover, it gives Mewtwo X more protection on top of the move's Unstoppable status effect in a form of a shield while firing Psystrike.

How to Play Mega Mewtwo X

Jump to Section

Focus on Reaching Level 5 at the Start

Although Mewtwo X is already strong at the start, it only unlocks its true potential once it reaches level 5 and is now able to Mega Evolve. Given this, it's best to focus on farming and leveling up to level 5 in the early game.

Utilize Confusion and Barrier

Make sure to utilize Confusion and Barrier in the early game to help Mewtwo X level up faster. Use Confusion to either secure wild Pokemon or engage in fights. Meanwhile, use Barrier to either escape or start fights.

Understand and Utilize Pressure

Mewtwo X's core gameplay mainly revolves around its ability, Pressure, and it is also the primary source of its strength. Understanding how it works and utilizing its effects and mechanics are key to playing Mewtwo Y effectively.

Pressure: Mega Mewtwo X Passive Effect and Cooldown

Attack Opponents to Fill Up the Gauge

Whenever Mewtwo X hits opponents with standard attacks, its Mega Evolution gauge fills up, and the more the gauge fills up, the more the Pokemon's Attack, Defense, and Sp. Def. increases, making the Pokemon stronger with each attack. Managing this gauge is central to Mewtwo X's gameplay.

Remember that only standard attacks can fill up the gauge, using moves will not.

Tip:
Avoid triggering the Mega Evolution before the fight starts as opponents can simply back off and wait for the effect to expire. Try to anticipate when a fight will start before committing to it.

Have at Least 25 Aeos Energy to Prolong Duration

Aeos Energy Consumed Mega Evolution Duration
0 10 seconds
25 15 seconds
30 15 seconds

It's best to always have at least 25 Aeos Energy to prolong the duration of the Mega Evolution. Although triggering the Mega Evolution consumes 30 Aeos Energy at the max, there is no significant difference in terms of duration between consuming 30 Aeos Energy and 25 Aeos Energy.

Given this mechanic, it's best to avoid scoring points if the gauge is about to be full. Instead, only score points if the gauge is below half to give Mewtwo X time to farm Aeos Energy again, or once Mewtwo X mega evolves.

Note:
Mewtwo X can still Mega Evolve even with no Aeos Energy.

Take Advantage of Mega Evolution Effects

While mega evolved, Mewtwo X's Attack, Defense, and Sp. Def. increase even more, it gains increased movement speed, and it lunges at opponents when it attacks.

Always take advantage of these effects once Mewtwo X mega evolves, and turn up the aggression by beating down opponents with attacks and moves since the Pokemon is at its strongest during this state.

Use Future Sight or Psystrike to Disable Targets

Although they function differently, Future Sight or Psystrike should be used to keep opponents disabled, allowing the Pokemon to freely attack at melee range. In particular, Psystrike can also be used to poke opponents from range.

Pokemon UNITE - Mega Mewtwo X - Future Sight Icon.pngFuture Sight Pokemon UNITE - Mega Mewtwo X - Psystrike Icon.pngPsystrike

Choose Complimentary Move Based on Need

Generally, Future Sight can go well with either Teleport or Recover while Psystrike works best with Teleport. However, it ultimately depends on the opponents' team composition.

  • If there a lot of high-mobility Pokemon, it's best to learn Teleport to give Mewtwo X a tool to stay on top of them.
  • If there are alot of burst-type Pokemon, it's best to learn Recover to allow Mewtwo X to tank some damage and also heal itself.
Note:
These are only basic guidelines. Move execution will still play a significant role.

Utilize Inifinite Psyburn's Global Range and Stun

Although Infinite Psyburn is a simple damage move, its global range and stun effect makes it extremely powerful and useful. Here are some scenarios of when to use Infinite Psyburn:

  • To initiate fights.
  • To finish off targets.
  • To steal objectives like Rayquaza.
  • To get vision of opponents.

Hard Counter with Disables and Debuffs

While Mewtwo X is powerful when mega-evolved, it is not immune to disables and debuffs. Because Mewtwo X mostly capitalizes on its Standard Attacks, Pokemon that can inflict debuffs, stuns and disable its movement can easily overwhelm it and eventually take it down.

Close the Gap

Ranged, Fragile Pokemon with High Damage

How to Beat
• These Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can be dangerous for Mega Mewtwo X. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Mega Mewtwo X once it gets close.
• Use Teleport or Recover to quickly get close to them, then grab them with Future Sight or disable them with Psystrike and beat them down with attacks.
• Use Infinite Psyburn for additional damage and disable if needed.

Trade Blows Effectively

How to Beat
• Much like Mewtwo X, these Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks or combos to deal damage. They are also durable enough to tank Mewtwo X damage. However, Mewtwo X's advantage is that it can increase its damage and defenses each time it attacks opponents and can become even more powerful once it mega evolves.
• Use Recover to tank their damage, or use Teleport to gain increased damage and fill up the Mega Evolution gauge faster, then just trade blows with them.
• Use Future Sight or Psystrike to disrupt their attacks or combos.
• Use Infinite Psyburn for additional damage and disable if needed.

Dodge or Tank Their Burst Damage

High-mobility Pokemon with Burst Damage

How to Beat
• These Pokemon are incredibly agile and deal high burst damage. However, they become vulnerable when they miss their burst damage attempt.
• Dodge their burst damage using Teleport or tank it with Recover, then retaliate with Future Sight or Psystrike and attacks.
• Use Infinite Psyburn for additional damage and disable if needed.

Group Up with Allies

Highly Durable Pokemon
Blastoise Image Crustle Image Goodra Image Greedent Image Lapras Image Trevenant Image Umbreon Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable, making it difficult for Mewtwo X to take them down alone. With that, it's best to group up with allies to bring them down with the help of Mewtwo X.
• Use Future Sight or Psystrike to keep them disabled and just keep attacking them.
• Use Teleport or Recover to stay on top of them.

Easy Matchups for Mega Mewtwo X

• Use Teleport or Recover to quickly get close to them, then grab them with Future Sight or disable them with Psystrike and beat them down with attacks.
• Use Infinite Psyburn for additional damage and disable if needed.

Best Teammates for Mega Mewtwo X

Pokemon Explanation
Slowbro ImageSlowbro Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Pokemon with Strong Disables
Mewtwo X works well with allies that are equipped with disabling and hindrance abilities, since it allows Mewtwo X to burst enemies down quicker and push lanes as much as possible.
Absol ImageAbsol Gardevoir ImageGardevoir Leafeon ImageLeafeon Pokemon with High Burst Damage
Mewtwo X is innately strong on its own and can handle fights that it initiates, so having allies that have high burst damage assist in pushing lanes definitely helps overwhelm enemies even easier. These ally Pokemon are equipped with powerful attacks that they can unleash from a safe distance and help Mewtwo X push lanes and dominate goal zones.
Machamp ImageMachamp Urshifu ImageUrshifu Aggressive Frontliners
Besides Supporter allies, Mewtwo X can also use a helping hand from its All-Rounder allies. These ally Pokemon are equipped with hard-hitting combos that can soak up damage, overwhelm enemies with a few hits, and possibly stun or disable them from setting up their attacks.
Blissey ImageBlissey Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Dedicated Supporters
While Mewtwo X can hold itself in a fight longer than most Pokemon, it still needs Supporter allies that specializes in supporting its teammates in the form of heals, buffs, and shields on the go, especially when Mewtwo X is aggressively pushing lanes and swiftly securing objectives.
