Armored Mewtwo in ‘CoroCoro!’ Ancient Mew Promo Re-Release!

We’ve received our own scans of CoroCoro magazine from a staff member in Japan, showing a clearer view of Armored Mewtwo.

As we already knew, the magazine states Armored Mewtwo will appear in the Mewtwo Strikes Back EVOLUTION movie. The armor is created by Team Rocket to help suppress Mewtwo’s strength (like in the original film). Armored Mewtwo will also appear in the manga adaptation of the movie.

CoroCoro has also revealed that the classic Ancient Mew promo card will come with the film’s movie pamphlet! The card appears to be identical to the original version, but has a 2019 copyright date on the bottom to help distinguish it from the original. The original print was released for the Lugia movie in Japan and America. The movie pamphlets can be purchased at theaters when you see the film.

Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution will release in Japanese theaters on July 12th. Thanks goes to Bangiras and Franco T. for the translations!
