What are Clone Pokemon?
If you’re not quite clued up on old school Pokemon, there’s a chance you have no idea what we’re talking about. Clone Pokemon originate from the first movie, aptly named Pokémon: The First Movie. In the film, Mewtwo creates an army of Pokemon, burning a distinct pattern into their skin in the process. The scene was both sad and unsettling, so now you get to relive those er, cherished memories by rounding up a bunch of clones for your collection. Hopefully we’ll see more Clone Pokemon make an appearance, as in the movie, Mewtwo created 24 of them in total:
In addition to the clone event, Pokemon GO has a plethora of upcoming events spanning February, covering Valentine’s Day and Pokemon Day, (February 27) and with the newly released Pokemon Home, you’ll be able to collect to your heart's content.
