There are several legendary Pokémon that you can use in Pokémon Go. They vary in stats, have different strengths and weaknesses, and have unique moves that make them standout mobile game choices. If a Pokémon has excellent stats, it can easily falter and not be a good choice for you when it doesn’t have a good moveset. The same happens if you have a Pokémon with a great moveset but poor stats. There’s a delicate balance between recognizing what you need from a Pokémon. When it comes to Incarnate Forme Thundurus, it’s a Pokémon with some great stats, but it won’t be useful if you choose the incorrect moveset. Incarnate Forme Thundurus will be appearing from March 11 to the 16 in your local time zone.

Incarnate Forme Thundurus is an Electric and Flying-type Pokémon. It’s weak to Ice and Rock-type moves, but it’s resistant to Bug, Fighting, Flying, Grass, Ground, and Steel-type moves. It’s hard to predict what Pokémon you need to use to take it down, but so long as you have a Pokémon to protect it from any Ice or Rock-type choices, Thundurus is difficult to defeat. In PvP, Thundurus has a maximum CP of 3,345, an attack of 222, a defense of 141, and a stamina of 160.

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)
  • Thunder Shock (Electric-type) – 3 damage and 4.5 energy (1.5 damage per turn)

Charged moves

  • 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

For Incarnate Forme Thundurus’ fast move, you don’t want to consider using astonish. It’s not a good move, and no Pokémon should have it as their fast move. There are far better choices in nearly every category in Pokémon Go. Avoid using the fast move astonish whenever possible. Thunder shock is far superior, hands down.

When it comes to Incarnate Forme Thundurus’ charged moves, you don’t have too many choices. Typically, you want to go with moves that require the least amount of energy to use. Both brick break and thunder punch fit that category. However, because crunch and thunder are also relatively low energy, and do far more damage, those moves trump brick break and thunder punch. Crunch and thunder are the best moves to teach Thundurus, and make it a great choice in the Master League and in other five-star raids.

Thundurus won’t be hitting the top of the charts in the Master League. It’s defeated by several Ice, Ground, and Rock-type Pokémon that regularly sit at the top of the meta. However, it’s still a solid choice to add to your arsenal. So long as you can build a team around it, Incarnate Forme Thundurus is a worthwhile addition to your Pokémon Go Master League team.

Overall, the best moveset for Incarnate Forme Thundurus to learn is the fast move thunder shock, and the charged moves crunch and thunder.
