Mewtwo Raid’s Tough!

Phew! Finally, some challenging content. The 5★ Mewtwo Raid’s pretty tough, and definitely requires quite a bit of coordination to beat.

Team Rawkhet decided to try it out, beating Mewtwo after 3 tries. Here’s the team we used:

Lunala @ Assault Vest
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Ability: Shadow Shield
Shiny: Yes
Timid Nature
– Moongeist Beam
– Focus Blast
– Phantom Force
– Psyshock

Clefable @ Eviolite
EVs: 252 HP / 172 Def / 60 SpD / 24 Spe
Ability: Friend Guard
Level: 100
Bold Nature
– Follow Me
– Heal Pulse
– Protect
– Life Dew

Grimmsnarl-Gmax @ Light Clay
EVs: 130 HP / 126 SpA / 252 Spe
Ability: Prankster
Level: 100
Rash Nature
– Light Screen
– Reflect
– Spirit Break
– Thunder Wave

Zacian @ Rusted Sword
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Ability: Intrepid Sword
Level: 100
Adamant Nature
– Iron Head
– Psychic Fangs
– Sacred Sword
– Swords Dance

Clefable’s role is to tank with Follow Me while the rest set up, then provide support. Grimmsnarl buffs the team with Light Screen, and Zacian sets up on Swords Dance.

Lunala is the main attacker, and the only one to Dynamax in the match. While a shield is active, any move works (conserving PP on Max Phantasm / Moongeist Beam). Zacian with Behemoth Blade has very high DPS, using Sacred Sword to preserve PP. Grimmsnarl’s Spirit Break exists to try and negate Mewtwo’s Calm Mind, and is also the main attacking move.

Lunala’s Phantom Force was useful as a clutch move, when everyone else is fainted and waiting to revive.

Anyone else managed to defeat Mewtwo?
