Pokemon Go's next five-star special attack is starting soon, and trainers will need to look to the skies to catch this legendary Pokemon.
Tornadus Therian Forme, the Flying-type Legendary Pokemon hailing from the Unova region, is the only one to be caught in Pokemon Go's latest five-star raid, which runs from March 15th to at least March 20th. Tornadus' return to five-star raid comes with the game's Festival of Colors event. Tornadus has appeared before in Pokemon Go, in its Therian and Incarnate forms. However, any chance to add a rare Pokemon like this is worth it, so if you're going to challenge the raid, check out our tips below.
Tornadus Therian Forme Raid Timeline
Tornadus Therian Forme enters the five-star attack ring from March 15 at 10 am local time, staying there until at least 20 pm on March 20 – it has not been confirmed whether the attacks will remain after the Festival of Colors event ends. Unfortunately, the game doesn't follow any set schedule with its attack - there's no guarantee that Tornadus will enter a gym for a battle - but the game constantly tells you who's nearby to attack, so keep an eye out.
There's hope for those in need of an appearance in Tornadus Therian Forme: Pokemon Go's weekly Raid Hour on Wednesday night. The Raid Hour event on March 16 – from 18pm to 19pm local time – will feature Pokémon Cyclone in nearly every gym in the game. If you want a guaranteed shot at the Tornadus Therian Forme, gather your friends and head out after dinner on Wednesday night.
Tornadus Therian shape and counters
Tornadus Therian Forme is a pure Flying-type Pokémon, making it very simple to combine. Flying types have seen the same weaknesses since the days of Pokémon Red and Blue, so any longtime trainer will tell you it's time to stock up on Electric, Rock, and Ice-type Pokémon.
Zapdos and Raikou are two amazing options right off the bat, with Zapdos' resistance to Flying-type moves an extra bonus. Rhyperior, Mamoswine, Electivire, and Rampardos will round out your team of six perfectly, giving you plenty of options to work with as you try to take down Tornadus.
types to avoid
Just as we know the Flying-type's weaknesses from the start, we also know how to plan for the types it resists. Ground-types have no chance of being effective here, while Bug, Fighting, and Grass-type Pokémon will see their attack damage reduced when fighting Tornadus. .
Once you've captured the Cyclone Pokémon for yourself, take it out for a few rounds in the Go Battle League or take on the Mega Lopunny Mega Raid.
