Top Incarnate Forme Thundurus Counters

Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top ten Incarnate Forme Thundurus counters as such:

  • Shadow Mamoswine: Powder Snow, Avalanche
  • Mega Aerodactyl: Rock Throw, Rock Slide
  • Rampardos: SmackDown, Rock Slide
  • Shadow Tyranitar: Smack Down, Stone Edge
  • Shadow Weavile: Ice Shard, Avalanche
  • Rhyperior: Smack Down, Rock Wrecker
  • Shadow Mewtwo: Psycho Cut, Ice Beam
  • Galarian Darmanitan: Ice Fang, Avalanche
  • Mamoswine: Powder Snow, Avalanche
  • Tyrantrum: Rock Throw, Meteor Beam

It is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, but creating that amount of strong Shadow Pokémon with their moves unlocked is a tall order for even the most practiced players. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help take down Incarnate Forme Thundurus with efficiency.

  • Terrakion: Smack Down, Rock Slide
  • Kyurem: Dragon Breath, Glaciate
  • Gigalith: Smack Down, Meteor Beam
  • Tyranitar: Smack Down, Stone Edge
  • Glaceon: Frost Breath, Avalanche
  • Weavile: Ice Shard, Avalanche
  • Mewtwo: Psycho Cut, Ice Beam
  • Regigigas: Rock-type Hidden Power, Giga Impact
  • Landorus: Rock Throw, Rock Slide
  • Aurorus: Rock Throw, Meteor Beam

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Incarnate Forme Thundurus can be defeated with two trainers, but if you cannot guarantee the top counters with maxed-out CP and the best moves, your best bet is to make sure you have three or more players. Using the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee Great or Excellent throws, along with Golden Razz Berries, is the best way to catch Pokémon. If you get a Shiny, though, it is a guaranteed catch so be sure to use a Pinap Berry.

Shiny Odds & 100% IVs

The Shiny rate for Legendary Pokémon is approximately one in 20. When looking for a Pokémon with the best stats, the 100% IV Thundurus will have a CP of 1911 in normal weather conditions and 2389 in boosted conditions. Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
