Incarnate Forme Thundurus’ best moveset in Pokemon Go

Incarnate Forme Thundurus is an Electric and Flying-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Ice and Rock-type moves and resistant against Bug, Fighting, Flying, Grass, Ground, and Steel-type attacks. You’ll primarily want to use it to take down Water and other Flying-type Pokémon, but it’s also effective at taking down a handful of select Psychic and Fairy-types, such as Lugia and Togekiss. Although it might not be as defensive as the other legendary Pokémon, Thundurus does pack a punch.

These are all of the moves Incarnate Forme Thundurus can learn.

Fast moves

  • Astonish (Ghost-type) – 5 damage and 3 energy (1.6 damage per turn) – 3 turns
  • Thunder Shock (Electric-type) – 3 damage and 4.5 energy (1.5 damage per turn) – 2 turns

When picking Incarnate Forme Thundurus’ fast move, we highly recommend Thunder Shock. It’s a much better option than Astonish, and it’s also an Electric-type attack, which means it does bonus damage when Thundurus uses it. Plus, it offers a decent amount of energy, and that should give you enough power to regularly use Thundurus’ charged attacks.

Charged attacks

  • Brick Break (Fighting-type) – 40 damage and 35 energy
  • Crunch (Dark-type) – 70 damage and 45 energy
  • Thunder (Electric-type) – 100 damage and 60 energy
  • Thunder Punch (Electric-type) – 55 damage and 40 energy

When picking Thundurus’ charged attacks, you only want to go with two options: Crunch and Thunder. Although Thunder Punch does a good amount of damage, it costs 40 energy, and Thundurus can unleash a powerful Thunder attack for 60 energy, making this a far better option. Crunch is a solid choice compared to the other options, and it means Thundurus can be useful against other Psychic and Ghost-types that appear in the Master League.

Overall, the best moveset for Incarnate Forme Thundurus to learn is the fast move Thunder Shock and the charged attacks Crunch and Thunder.
