This month’s “Pokémon GO” raids just got even more interesting.

Niantic and the Pokémon Co. released a preview Thursday of the legendary character Mewtwo, who will be sporting some fresh gear in the mobile game.

This “armored Mewtwo” will appear in battle raids for a limited time.

Players will be able to fight the psychic-type Pokémon in five-star raids from 1 p.m. PT Wednesday to 1 p.m. PT July 31.

The company also released a trailer for the “Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution” movie, scheduled for release in Japan next week. The English version will come out later in the year.
