Tornadus is storming into Pokémon Go’s tier 5 raids up until Feb. 25 at 4 p.m. ET.
The flying-type Legendary Pokémon is the first of the Force of Nature trio to appear in the game, which indicates Thundurus and Landorus will likely follow in raids after Tornadus leaves.
Tornadus really has 2 kinds: the human-like Incarnate Forme and the bird-like Therian Forme. Both kinds have the exact same typing, however with various statistics, so this guide will deal with Tornadus no matter what type its in. Therian Forme Tornadus has yet to be added to Pokémon Go.
Given That Tornadus is a pure flying-type, it’s weak versus rock-, electrical-, and ice-type relocations. Think about utilizing any of the following Pokémon when taking it on:
- Rampardos with Smack Down and Rock Slide
- Electivire with Thunder Shock and Wild Charge
- Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche
- Tyranitar with Smack Down and Stone Edge
You can likewise use weather increases to offer you an edge in your hunt. Snow will enhance ice-type relocations, rain will enhance electric-type relocations, and partially cloudy weather will enhance rock-type relocations.
The best moveset for Tornadus is Air Slash paired with Typhoon, though even with this moveset, it’s not an excellent flying-type assaulter. The best flying-type assaulter is Moltres with Wing Attack and Sky Attack, though if you missed your possibility for the Famous bird, Honchkrow with Peck and Sky Attack will do the job.
