How do you beat Mewtwo? Pokemon Go questions

MewTwo was just released in Japan during the Pikachu Party Event.  The powerful Pokemon is now expected to be released globally over the next couple of weeks. MewTwo will be the most powerful Pokemon in the game at that point.

What is the Dark Squad?
The Dark Squad is a special group of Pokemon that are excellent counters to MewTwo, Mew and also Alakazam or better said this is a special kill team for psychic Pokemon.

If you have read the Toylab Post on How To Beat MewTwo you will know about the idea of the Dark Squad.  If you have not read that post you should do it.  There are a variety of solid stategies on how to beat MewTwo.  This post is going to focus exclusively on building up a Dark Squad.  It will layout my own Dark Squad and my quest to build up the ultimate MewTwo Kill Team.

I was planning on having more time to build up the Dark Squad.  I thought I could have a cool journal of my activities as I went about building up the group over a few weeks.  However, my Dark Squad plans just got kicked into ultra drive.

One great thing about building up the Dark Squad is that it will also work well against Mew once he is released.  My guess is that Mew's release will closely follow MewTwo.  I am actually surprised that Mew did not come first.

Dark Squad

The members of Dark Squad are basically a team of Pokemon designed to take out Psychic Pokemon.  The Dark Squad has not been necessary in the game up until now.

Goal: Get a Dark Squad Together with ALL MEMBERS, HIGH CP (Above 2k), and Proper MoveSets.

Bonus Goal: Dark Squad Elite Team:  Have all the members with 90% IVs.

The Dark Squad Members:
To be considered a true Dark Squad you must have all the members with proper move sets all with CPs above 2000.  Can you say Bite Crunch?  Bite Crunch is the important Move set when building up a Dark Squad.


Tyranitar with moves Bite and Crunch.  Just having a Tyranitar is not enough.  The Tyranitar is really the Squads heavy hitter.  With an abundance of power, a great move set, and powerful attacks this is the most important Pokemon to get.


This is the 2nd most important Pokemon to have in the Dark Squad.  Houndoom has powerful Dark Attacks that can help it wittle away at MewTwo's health while be partially protected by having a type advantage defensively.
The Best Move set for Houndoom is Snarl / Foul Play.  However a Snarl / Crunch is also acceptable to be considered a member of the Dark Squad.


Any move set will suffice for a Dark Squad member as all of Umbreon's attacks are Dark Type. However an optimal Umbreon has the move set Snarl / Foul Play.

Umbreon is the easiest of the Dark Squad to acquire and power due to it being one of the Eevee Evolutions.


The best move set for Gengar is Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball.  However, all move sets should work well vs MewTwo so just having a Gengar is necessary.

Gengar is a good attacker and can unleash a lot of damage but dodging with him will be very important.  He has low defense and health, making him the glass cannon of the Dark Squad.

Optional Members:
Two other members to keep an eye on:


A Sneasel with Feint Attack and Foul Play could be strong.  However, I am not sure if you can make a 2000 CP Sneasel.

Bite Crunch 

My Journal of Building up Dark Squad:

Dark Squad Build Up Day 1.
Alright well I have an Umbreon, and Gengar so those 2 members are good.  However, my Tyranitar does not have the move set Bite Crunch.  So I need to either TM it or get a new Tyranitar.

I also do not yet have a Houndoom.  I am missing a few candies.

My Umbreon is also stuck at a lousy 900 CP so it will need to be upgraded.

What is the Daredevil: Fall from Grace story?

Fall from Grace is a Daredevil story that is remembers for being ambitious, and controversial.  Over 15 years since the story was printed in continues to be one of the most important and influential of Daredevil stories.

Fall from Grace News:
Fall from Grace  Multi-Media:

Fall from Grace was written by DG Chichester & Scott McDaniel who had the unenviable job of attempting to write Daredevil in the era after Frank Miller.  Miller had changed Daredevil and the entire superhero genre with his dark, gritty tableaus of Hellskitchen.  After Miller, Marvel seemed to have trouble finding an interesting place to take Daredevil without simply retreading what Miller had done.  Chichester had heard through the grapevine that Tom Defalco Editor of Marvel was planning to have him removed from Daredevil.  Chichester brought this up directly to Tom as he pitched Fall from Grace.   Chichester sold the group on the theme and some of the major ideas of the story that promised to have some major hooks.  One of the hooks turned out to be a simple cover of the first book that had a stark skyscraper and Daredevil falling out of it.

Highlights of Fall of Grace:

  • Elektra is returned to life by the Hand.
  • Daredevil must face high powered super villains including the Hand and Venom.
  • Daredevil receives a new armored suit
  • Fall from Grace is one of the first comic stories ever to have a digital promotion that was created by Chichester himself.

Premise and Plot:
The Hand, Daredevil and Venom race to acquire a United States telepathic virus called About Face.  In so doing a new Elektra is reborn.

Mile High Comics News


The Jason Street Mile High Comics is considered to be the largest comic book store and warehouse in the United States.  The stores is over 45 thousand square feet and hold over 10 million comics.  Mile High Comics is owned by the legendary comic figure Chuck Rozanski.  Early in Chuck's career he found one of the greatest early comic book collection known in existence that has helped build up a comic empire.  Chuck has gone to become a major player in the comic space and has even been depicted in some comics.

Mile High Comics at Jason Street News 10-18-2017:
Mile High will be particpating in the Halloween Comic Fest event on the 28th.  They will also have an auction on sight.  The store plans to use proceeds from Auctions to spruce up its exterior with giant pictures of comic covers.  While the indoor of the store is full of amazing decorations the store has not done much to its exterior which looks like a typical warehouse.  This project will change that and give it lively exterior that a store of its stature deserves.

From Chuck Rozanski's Newsletter he says of the auction and the art installation:
If you missed our amazing no-minimum-bid auction of last Saturday, you have asecond chance coming up in just two weeks. On Saturday morning, October 28th, we are going to host yet another auction featuring thousands of dollars of old comics,toys, statues, prints, and other collectibles. We have a very specific goal in kind for this auction, as I am trying to raise funds to help pay for an amazing art installation for the outside of our Jason St. Mega-Store. Here is a photoshopped look at what I am planning to do:
Doesn't that projection look cool? I have measured, and we have room for a total of 15!of these huge comics covers reproductions on our exterior walls. My plan is to spread out the cost by hosting an event each month to fund the cost of one cover, with ourauction on the 28th being the first. If you could please save the date and try to visit us on the 28th, we would all appreciate it very much. We'll have photos of auction items online for you very soon.
Yes Chuck I do think that looks cool and I will swing by on the 28th to help support the cause.
