It’s been a long time since we’ve heard updates about the Pokemon 2019 Nintendo Switch games.
Pokemon Sword and Shield were both announced back in March 2019 but since then, little information on the games has been revealed.
That means fans are taking it upon themselves to dig out more bonus information on the titles, trudging through trademark filings, digging up weird 4chan rumours and more in order to tease out even the smallest bit of information on the upcoming games.
But it’s the latest – official! – information that’s come from The Pokemon Company and Game Freak that has got Pokemon fans intrigued for the future.
Following on from rumours circulating back in March about an armoured Mewtwo coming to Sword and Shield, The Pokemon Company has revealed a new armoured Mewtwo is indeed real… though he’s going to appear elsewhere first.
As per Pokemon fansite Serebii, the new reveal of Armoured Mewtwo is related to the next Pokemon film, Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back.
“We have some further translations from this month’s issue of CoroCoro pertaining to the movie,” notes Serebii. CoroCoro is a Japanese magazine that has traditionally had the lead on dropping Pokemon-based news over in Japan.
“For a while, many have speculated that Armored Mewtwo could be a springboard into new game content. However, with CoroCoro’s showcase of Armored Mewtwo, it reconfirms that the armour is designed to surpress Mewtwo’s strength, much like the armour in the original movie.
“In addition to that, it states outright that this appearance of Mewtwo is exclusive to the movie, although it will of course appear in merchandise and other promotional elements for the movie. We’ll provide further details on the movie when they come.”
Of course, content shown in Pokemon films often teases in-game content – right back in the day, we saw Donphan revealed in the first Pokemon movie before it appeared in the games.
Does this mean we’ll see an armoured Mewtwo in Sword and Shield? At this point, we aren’t ruling it out. Check the images below for our first look at the armoured Pokemon – and the trailer for the Tomy toy based on its design, too.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of armoured evolutions coming to Pokemon Sword and Shield.
A leak before the announcement of the games correctly guessed that the titles would be based on Great Britain and called Sword and Shield. That same leak also noted that we would get armoured versions of various Pokemon, notably: Armored Charizard, Armored Mewtwo, Armored Flygon, Armored Zeraora, and that Meltan ties into Armored Evolution and Legendary lore.
None of this has been confirmed yet, but we’re interested to see how this develops, especially with this Mewtwo coming into the newest film.
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
