The new promo card for the upcoming Pok\u00e9mon film Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution was announced for moviegoers in Japan.\n\nThe Pok\u00e9mon franchise announced another promo card in its long line up of promos, Armored Mewtwo. The card comes shortly before the release of the new film Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution in Japan. Armored Mewtwo will be given to fans in Japan that see the film in theaters.\r\n\r\nPok\u00e9mon isn't new to promo cards for their films. Just looking at the list for the Wizards of the Coast promos is daunting. The tradition is a long one, going back to 1999 (US) film Pok\u00e9mon The First Movie. At the time, there were four promotional cards: Electabuzz, Mewtwo, Pikachu, and Dragonite. Each card was stamped with gold holographic lettering promoting the film. Of course, moviegoers were eager to collect them all. Harking back to the first film, the newest addition to this collection is Armored Mewtwo. \r\n\r\nThe announcement was made on Twitter by Joe Merrick. Fans will recognize the name as Serebii.net's webmaster. Serebii is a treasure trove of Pok\u00e9mon related information. From new game information to strategies for past games, it is the internet based Pok\u00e9dex we have always wanted. As such, it isn't surprising that Joe Merrick was the first to announce the card on his Twitter.\r\n\r\n\r\nThis Armored Mewtwo card looks really good.\r\n\r\nThis card is being given to viewers of the movie when they see it in theaters next month.

Now fans will get to experience that in 3D. At least they will have Armored Mewtwo to comfort them. Fans will receive the card at the theater for attending. The movie comes out in Japan on July 12. Currently, as Serebii notes, it is unknown if the card will make to US theaters.
