How to beat Tornadus in his Incarnate Forme

by Kyle Hanson


The Forces of Nature trio of Legendary characters continue their rotation in Pokémon GO with the return of Incarnate Forme Tornadus along with the two others. This Flying-type character has been around pretty recently, but players always love shiny hunting these Legendaries. So here’s our Pokémon GO Incarnate Forme Tornadus raid guide giving you the best counters in April and May 2021.

The Best Incarnate Forme Tornadus Counters in April and May 2021

Starting off with the very best Incarnate Forme Tornadus countes, we break down more specific info in the full raid guide down below. But if you want to jump right into battle all you need is a solid team. So here’s our picks for the best Incarnate Forme Tornadus counters in Pokémon GO for April and May 2021 (excluding Shadow and Mega Pokémon, see below).

Pokémon Fast Attack Charged Attack
Zekrom Charge Beam Wild Charge
Thundurus (Therian) Volt Switch Thunderbolt
Rampardos Smack Down Rock Slide
Magnezone Spark Wild Charge
Rhyperior Smack Down Rock Wrecker
Raikou Volt Switch Wild Charge
Zapdos Thunder Shock Thunderbolt

Most players should have some of the above, but for the more hardcore out there you may wonder what the best Mega and Shadow Tornadus counters are. Mega Manectric with Charge Beam and Wild Charge is your best option, with Mega Ampharos with Volt Switch and Zap Cannon as a solid backup. Shadow Raikou, Zapdos, Magnezone, and Electivire with the above moves are great choises along with Shadow Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche and Shadow Tyranitar with Smack Down and Stone Edge. Just be ready for them to take more damage as they deal more of their own.

These are some frequently asked questions and important tips about Incarnate Forme Tornadus raids in Pokémon GO for April and May 2021.

When do Incarnate Forme Tornadus Raids Begin and End

Incarnate Forme Tornadus will begin showing up in raids alongside Thundurus and Landorus on Tuesday, April 27th at 10am in your local time. We currently don’t have an end date for their availability, so expect to see them for a while.

How Many Players are Needed

Two high level players with best friend bonus and a solid team of counters can win against Incarnate Forme Tornadus. However, most players don’t have all of that going for them, and it’s always best to have too many players than too few these days. So instead we recommend going into the battle with at least 4-5 players on your team. If you fail, just show them the list of counters above so they can fine tune their team.
