Pokemon Go Tornadus Therian Forme Raid Guide: Weaknesses, Raid Hours, And More
The next special five-star Pokemon Go raid is about to begin,
And trainers will need to look to the sky to catch this legendary Pokemon. However, any chance to add such a rare Pokemon is worth it, so if you’re going for a raid challenge, check out our tips below.
Tornadus Therian Forme Raid Schedule
Tornadus Therian Forme enters the five-star raid ring from March 15 at 10:00 local time and remains there until at least 20:00 on March 20 – it is not yet confirmed if raids will remain after the end of the Festival of Colors. Unfortunately, the game doesn’t follow a set schedule with raids – there’s no guarantee that Tornadus will break into the gym for a fight – but the game keeps telling you who’s about to raid, so just keep an eye out.
However, there is one hope for those who need the Tornadus Therian Forme looks: the weekly Pokemon Go Raid Hour on Wednesday night. The Raid Hour event on March 16, which runs from 6 pm to 7 pm local time, will feature Cyclone Pokémon in almost every gym in the game. If you want a guaranteed entry to Tornadus Therian Forme, gather your friends and head out after dinner on a Wednesday night.
Tornadus Therian Form and Counters
Tornadus Therian Forme is a pure flying-type Pokemon, making it very easy to match. Flying types have seen the same weaknesses since Pokemon Red and Blue, so any longtime trainer will tell you it’s time to stock up on Electric, Rock, and Ice-type Pokemon. Zapdos and Raikou are two incredible options, and Zapdos’ resistance to flying attacks is an added bonus. Rhyperior, Mamoswine, Electivire, and Rampardos are the perfect complement to your six-man team, giving you plenty of work to do as you try to take down Tornadus.
Types to avoid
Just as we knew the flying type’s weaknesses from the start, we also know how to plan for the types it counters. Ground-types have no chance of being effective here, while Bug, Fighting, and Grass-type Pokémon will have their attack damage reduced when fighting Tornadus.
Once you’ve caught the Cyclone Pokemon for yourself, take it for a few rounds in the Go Battle League or take part in the Mega Lopunny Mega Raid.
