Future Sight Build Explanation

Build Explanation
This build is centered on shoving targets away from Mewtwo with Future Sight and blasting them with attacks to maximize the move's additional damage effect. Recover allows Mewtwo to convert its attack damage into HP, healing the Pokemon and prolonging its life during fights.
· Muscle Band improves Mega Mewtwo Y's attacks through increased damage and attack speed. It also helps the Pokemon to fill up its Mega gauge faster.
· Slick Spoon gives Mega Mewtwo Y a decent amount of Sp. Atk. and the ability to ignore a portion of its target's Sp. Def., improving its attack damage further, particularly when Mega evolved.
· Rapid-Fire Scarf provides Mega Mewtwo Y with a massive attack speed buff from time to time, allowing it to unleash more attacks during Future Sight.
· However, Scope Lens can be a replacement for Slick Spoon, increasing Mega Mewtwo Y's critical-hit rate and damage.
· X Attack gives Mega Mewtwo Y more damage and attack speed to work with.
· The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 7 Black Emblems for some move cooldown reduction and 6 Green Emblem to maximize its damage.
· Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk. or Critical-Hit Rate to further improve Mega Mewtwo Y's attacks.
· Attack, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

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

Out of all the item combinations, Muscle Band, Scope Lens, and Rapid-Fire Scarf will work best for the build. Although the item combination produced the lowest results, the massive attack speed buff from Rapid-Fire Scarf will translate into more damage in the long run.

As for alternatives, replacing Rapid-Fire Scarf with Wise Glasses or Slick Spoon would be the ideal choice. The item combination with Wise Glasses generated the second best results that is only slightly lower than the top. On the other hand, equipping Slick Spoon grants Mega Mewtwo Y both Sp. Atk. and HP for a more balanced build.


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 utilizes the distance-based damage from Psystrike to knock out targets and using Teleport to maneuver around and increase its damage further. Mega Mewtwo Y will rely mostly on Psystrike as its primary damage source.
· Wise Glasses provides Mega Mewtwo Y a large Sp. Atk. stat boost thanks to its percentage bonus, which also goes well with the Pokemon's ability to increase its Sp. Atk. via Pressure
· Choice Specs gives Mega Mewtwo Y more Sp. Atk. stat and increases its minimum move damage, particularly for Psystrike.
· Slick Spoon further adds more Sp. Atk. stat and grants Mega Mewtwo Y Sp. Def. penetration for its moves. It also gives a decent amount of HP for some durability.
· Eject Button gives Mega Mewtwo Y extra 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 7 Black Emblems for some move cooldown reduction and 6 Green Emblem to maximize its damage.
· Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk. to further improve Mega Mewtwo Y's move damage, particularly for Psystrike.
· Attack, 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.

These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken by substracting the Pokemon's max HP and its HP after taking damage.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Future Sight ImageFuture Sight Future Sight allows Mega Mewtwo Y to fend off opponents that try to get close to the Pokemon. The target is also slowed and takes increased damage.
Recover ImageRecover Recover gives Mega Mewtwo Y shielding, mobility, cooldown reduction, and HP recovery in one simple move.

This moveset harnesses Mega Mewtwo Y's dangerous ranged attacks when it's Mega evolved. Since the Pokemon needs to always keep its distance from enemies, Future Sight's slow and pushback mechanic makes it the perfect tool to keep them at bay. It also increases the damage taken by the target, especially from Mega Mewtwo Y's attacks. Recover increases the Pokemon's survivability during fights by giving it a shield, increased movement speed, and the ability to heal itself with its basic attacks. It also reduces its move cooldowns when the shield disappears.

Future Sight and Psystrike are Mega Mewtwo Y's primary damage moves. Choosing one changes the Pokemon's gameplay to some degree.

When going for Future Sight, Mega Mewtwo Y will mostly rely on its attacks as its primary source of damage, since the move itself deals little damage and will only deal significant damage if the Pokemon bombards the target with attacks after using the move. Choosing this move essentially turns Mega Mewtwo Y into an attack-damage damage dealer.

As for Psystrike, Mega Mewtwo Y will have a traditional Sp. Atk. Attacker gameplay, relying mostly on moves to take out opponents. Although the move does significantly more damage compared to Future Sight, it does require some setup to maximize its effeciency since it does more damage the farther away Mega Mewtwo Y is from the target.

On the other hand, Teleport and Recover are Mega Mewtwo Y's complimentary moves. They offer the Pokemon some utility to enhance its other moveset and helps in filling up its Mega gauge faster.

Choosing Teleport gives Mega Mewtwo Y a simple mobility tool but also increases its damage output for a short duration. Meanwhile, Recover is purely a utility tool, shielding and healing the Pokemon while also increasing its movement speed and reducing the Pokemon's move cooldowns. Selecting a move to pair with Future Sight or Psystrike is ultimately up to player preference due both moveset having incredible synergy with each other.

How to Play Mega Mewtwo Y

Jump to Section

Focus on Reaching Level 5 at the Start

Although Mewtwo Y 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 Y 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 Y'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 Y Passive Effect and Cooldown

Attack Opponents to Fill Up the Gauge

Whenever Mewtwo Y hits opponents with standard attacks, its Mega Evolution gauge fills up, and the more the gauge fills up, the more the Pokemon's Sp. Atk and attack speed increases, making the Pokemon more powerful with each attack. Managing this gauge is central to Mewtwo Y'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 Y time to farm Aeos Energy again, or once Mewtwo Y mega evolves.

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

Take Advantage of Mega Evolution Effects

While mega evolved, Mewtwo Y's Sp. Atk and basic attack speed increase even more, it gains increased movement speed, and its attacks deal damage in an area around the main target.

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

Tip:
Always get the orange buff from Escavalier or Bouffalant to compliment Mewtwo Y's ranged attacks while it's mega evolved.

Use Future Sight or Psystrike to Keep Opponents at Bay

Although they function differently, Future Sight or Psystrike should be used to keep opponents from getting close to Mewtwo Y, allowing the Pokemon to freely attack from a safe range. In particular, Psystrike can also be used to poke opponents from range since it deals increased damage the farther away they are from Mewtwo Y.

Related Pages
Pokemon UNITE - Future Sight Icon (Mewtwo Y).pngFuture Sight Pokemon UNITE - Psystrike Icon (Mewtwo Y).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 Y a tool to maintain its distance.
  • If there are alot of burst-type Pokemon, it's best to learn Recover to allow Mewtwo Y 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.

Teleport IconFuture Sight IconStandard Attack Icon ~

TeleportFuture SightStandard Attack ~
Start the combo by using Teleport to relocate to a desired position, then immediately follow up with Future Sight. While the target is locked on, attack it continuously until Future Sight's effect ends. Teleport's second activation can be used to chase the target or get into a safer position, depending on the situation.
This combo can be used to quickly fill up the Mega gauge, or used while Mega evolved for a devasting damage. Infinite Psyburn can also be used immediately after Future Sight to keep the target stunned.

Psychic Downpour Combo

• While maintaining a safe distance, use Future Sight or Psystrike to disable them, then just bombard them with attacks to deplete their HP.

Why is there no build with recover? Seems crazy as it gives m2y the edge being able to build its mega gauge out of combat.
