Pokemon GO: Tornadus Raid Guide, Stats, Counters, Weaknesses, & Best Movesets

It’s time for a raid change in Pokemon GO. Now that most of the Swords of Justice quartet are in the game it’s time for the Forces of Nature trio to start appearing in legendary raids beginning with Tornadus. This was the first Pokemon in the franchise to be monotype Flying. This makes a slight impact on its weaknesses, but it’s mostly a fun bit of trivia. Here’s everything you need to know about Tornadus’ raid, stats, counters, weaknesses, & best movesets in Pokemon GO.

Tornadus Raid Guide, Stats, Counters, Weaknesses, & Best Movesets in Pokemon GO

As you might expect of a Flying-type Pokemon named Tornadus, this creature mostly has wind-based attacks. But to take full advantage of this mon’s abilities you’ll need to capture it.

How to Catch Tornadus in Pokemon GO

Tornadus can be found in legendary raids and can be taken down by a team of two as long as you have max level hard counters. We’ll touch on those counters shortly, but the ideal number of trainers for this raid is closer to four with decent counters.

Suggested Counters for Tornadus

Since this legendary has just one type to hit for super effective attacks that makes picking counters a bit easier than some other raids with dual-type Pokemon.

Rock, Ice, and Electric mons make the most sense since they hit Tornadus for the most damage. Fortunately, only Rock-type Pokemon need to watch out since this creature can be pretty dangerous with Grass Knot.

Best Pokemon & Movesets to Use

Rampardos is one of the strongest and most dangerous options for this raid. The Electric and Ice mons are much safer options even though they might not deal as much damage as quickly. Here are the best counters for the raid:

Good Pokemon & Movesets to Use

Rock-type Pokemon rule the list of good counters. Rhyperior may jump up when it learns Rock Wrecker on Feb. 22, but we have yet to learn how strong it will be. Luxray and Zapdos are solid choices as well, especially if Tornadus has Grass Knot.

Some Ice-types like Jynx, Glaceon and Weavile might become viable options if it’s snowing. However, you should stay far away from them without a weather boost. Here are some good counters for the raid:
