How to beat Incarnate Forme Tornadus

by Kyle Hanson


The second of the three Forces of Nature Legendary characters is coming back to raids soon in Pokémon GO. This time it’s Incarnate Forme Tornadus, the original form of the Flying type Pokémon. While it’s appeared in raids before, a lot has changed in the game. So here’s our Pokémon GO Tornadus (Incarnate) raid guide giving you the best counters in March 2021.

The Best Incarnate Forme Tornadus Counters in March 2021

Our complete Tornadus (Incarnate) raid guide is down below. There we will attempt to answer all the most pertinent and frequently asked questions from players. But the most important thing when going into a Legendary raid battle is to have a solid team of the best counters against the Pokémon. So here’s our picks for the best Incarnate Forme Tornadus counters in Pokémon GO for March 2021. (Note: see below for Mega and Shadow Pokémon)

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

These are just the standard counters though. If you want to Mega evolve or have Shadow Pokémon with the right moveset then there are more options. Shadow Raikou, Zapdos, Magnezone, and Electivire with the above moves are ideal. Shadow Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche and Shadow Tyranitar with Smack Down and Stone Edge are also good counter choices.

For your Mega Pokémon you could go with Mega Ampharos, but they aren’t that much better than the above choices so save your energy if you want to. Now let’s get on with the full Incarnate Forme Tornadus raid guide down below.

How Many Players are Needed

With everything on their side two players can defeat Tornadus (Incarnate) all by themselves. This includes a solid team of the counters above, all powered up to level 40 or close to it. They need to be best friends and might even want the weather to be just right (see below). However, most players won’t have all of that going for them so we recommend going in with a party of four or more trainers when facing off against Incarnate Forme Tornadus.

What Weather Boosts Incarnate Forme Tornadus and Counters
