Pokemon Go Thundurus Raid Counters Guide
The Thundurus raid will be available from March 2nd onwards. While it is quite possible to take down this legendary Pokemon with the 3 trainers, it is advisable however for both ease and higher chance of success to use at least 4 or more high-level trainers or at least 7 or more low-level trainers.
If you want to catch this Pokemon and claim it for yourself you need to meet the following requirements:
- 861 – 1911 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
- 2326 – 2389 CP at Level 25 with Windy and Rainy weather boost
This Pokemon is only weak against rock and ice-type Pokemon, so it is advisable to use the following in your lineup:
- Rampardos with Smack Down and Rock Slide
- Glaceon with Frost Breath and Avalanche
- Terrakion with Smack Down and Rock Slide
- Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche
- Tyranitar with Smack Down and Stone Edge
- Rhyperior with Smack Down and Rock Wrecker
To further aid you in the battle you can use the weather to boost your Pokemons. Weather boosts can be used to achieve this, just keep in mind that rainy weather improves electricity type Pokemon so avoid rainy weather and cloudy weather boosts rock type Pokemon.
The best moves that the Thundurus has in its roaster are Thunder Shock and Thunder, these have a high attack stat. these can be used once you have captured Thundurus as your Pokemon. Though powerful it is limited by the small move set and not great in PvE matches.
An end date for the raids has not been announced yet!
