Looking for the best Tornadus (Incarnate Forme) counters in Pokémon Go? We’ve got you covered with the strongest monsters to field against this boss of the game’s 5-Star Raids. You may encounter a Shiny Tornadus during its current stint, which – aside from completing your Pokédex – is about the only reason you should engage with this battle, as it’s pretty much useless in PvP and PvE both.

We’re also still waiting for Forme Change being expanded to include Tornadus and the other members of its Legendary family. As of right now, you can’t freely change between the Incarnate and Therian Formes.

Pokémn Tornadus Incarnate Forme.

Tornadus (Incarnate Forme) will be easy to defeat using our recommended counters.

Best Tornadus (Incarnate Forme) counters – Pokémon Go

Tornadus (Incarnate Forme) is a pure Flying-type, making Rock, Ice, and Electric equally strong counters. Thanks to better stats and moves, Electric- and Rock-types are to be preferred for this raid and achieve better finishing times. Here are our recommendations:

  1. Mega Manectric (Thunder Fang, Wild Charge)
  2. Xurkitree (Spark, Discharge)
  3. Mega Aerodactyl (Rock Throw, Rock Slide)
  4. Zekrom (Charge Beam, Fusion Bolt)
  5. Thundurus (Therian Forme) (Volt Switch, Thunderbolt)
  6. Rampardos (Smack Down, Rock Slide)
  7. Mega Ampharos (Volt Switch, Zap Cannon)
  8. Tyrantrum (Rock Throw, Meteor Beam)
  9. Rhyperior (Smack Down, Rock Wrecker)
  10. Electivire (Thunder Shock, Wild Charge)
  11. Magnezone (Spark, Wild Charge)
  12. Raikou (Volt Switch, Wild Charge)
  13. Zapdos (Thunder Shock, Thunderbolt)
  14. Mega Glalie (Frost Breath, Avalanche)
  15. Terrakion (Smack Down, Rock Slide)

Tornadus (Incarnate Forme) commands 46,044 competition points (CP) as a raid boss, but is relatively easy to defeat, since its own moves can’t really do much to most of its counters. Two players at around level 40 with Pokémon of that strength from this list should be able to defeat this Legendary and collect the maximum amount of possible rewards.
