Top Incarnate Forme Tornadus Counters

Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top 10 Incarnate Forme Tornadus counters as such:

  • Shadow Raikou: Thunder Shock, Wild Charge
  • Mega Manectric: Thunder Fang, Wild Charge
  • Xurkitree: Spark, Discharge
  • Shadow Zapdos: Thunder Shock, Thunderbolt
  • Shadow Magnezone: Spark, Wild Charge
  • Mega Aerodactyl: Rock Throw, Rock Slide
  • Zekrom: Charge Beam, Wild Charge
  • Therian Forme Thundurus: Volt Switch, Thunderbolt
  • Shadow Mamoswine: Powder Snow, Avalanche
  • Shadow Tyranitar: Smack Down, Stone Edge

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 Tornadus with efficiency.

  • Rampardos: Smack Down, Rock Slide
  • Tyrantrum: Rock Throw, Meteor Beam
  • Rhyperior: Smack Down, Rock Wrecker
  • Electivire: Thunder Shock, Wild Charge
  • Magnezone: Spark, Wild Charge
  • Raikou: Thunder Shock, Wild Charge
  • Zapdos: Thunder Shock, Thunderbolt
  • Terrakion: Smack Down, Rock Slide
  • Galarian Darmanitan: Ice Fang, Avalanche
  • Mamoswine: Powder Snow, Avalanche
  • Luxray: Spark, Wild Charge

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Incarnate Forme Tornadus 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 Tornadus will have a CP of 1911 in normal weather conditions and 2389 in boosted conditions.

Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
