Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution
The latest issue of CoroCoro magazine, to be released tomorrow (May 15th) will reveal that fans who go see the Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution movie in theatres will get a reprint of the Ancient Mew promo card, which was originally distributed alongside Pokémon: The Movie 2000 – The Power of One.
Also, the magazine confirms that Armoured Mewtwo will only appear in the movie (and related materials), ruling out a special distribution for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee! or even Pokémon Sword and Shield.
