Lucky Pokémon Mewtwo preview

Lucky Mewtwo with label and altered background

Lucky Pokémon are special Pokémon that are more likely to be stronger opponents in battle and require less Stardust to power up. Their minimum IV floor is 12/12/12. [1]

Background

When trading Pokémon, there is a chance that Pokémon can become a sparkly Lucky Pokémon. Lucky Pokémon require less Stardust to power up, which means they can reach a higher CP much faster than other Pokémon.[2]

Appearance

Lucky Pokémon have a green label, below their name, indicating that they are lucky. Their background also features shimmering effects on their Pokémon Profile and in the Pokédex. The number of each Lucky Pokémon a Trainer has encountered will be tracked in the Pokédex.[2]
