List of Clone Pokémon in Pokémon GO: how to get Clone Pikachu, Clone Charizard and other Clone Pokémon
The Clone Pokémon will be added to Pokemon go to celebrate Pokémon Day 2020 and the imminent release of Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back – Evolution on Netflix.
Similar to Alolan Pokémon and Galarian’s Weezing, Clone Pokémon are a new type of Pokémon form that differ aesthetically from the normal Pokémon you can catch.
Currently only five Pokémon clones have been announced for the game, including Clone Pikachu Y Charizard Clone, and although they are based on anime, Niantic could publish many more.

What are Clone Pokémon in Pokémon GO
Clone Pokémon first appeared in the movie Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back as creatures created by Mewtwo.
Although they are called Clones, each of these Pokémon looks slightly different from the original. For example, Charizard has a series of dark orange stripes, while Pikachu has a pattern around the tips of its ears.
In the movie these Pokémon are also stronger than the originals, but we will have to wait to see if that will also be the case in Pokémon GO. Most likely, the change is only cosmetic.
Although only five Clone Pokémon are planned for release, this is the first time they have appeared in any Pokémon game, making it a significant event.

Clone Pokémon will be available in Pokémon GO between Tuesday, February 25 and Monday, March 2.
At the moment, only five Clone Pokémon will be published as part of the Pokémon Day 2020 celebrations in Pokémon GO.
There is a possibility that they will appear again in events later, perhaps accompanied by other Clone Pokémon, but for the moment these are the confirmed ones.
