It almost feels like the Forces of Nature trio have been around in Pokémon GO for the whole year at this point, but they've only been around for the past two months. There is light on the horizon in early May, but we still have one last hoorah with the Embodied Forms for the trio, which includes Thundurus.

Best Thundurus Incarnate Form Counters in April and May 2022

Our Incarnate Forme Thundurus guide can be found further down below, where we answer all the important questions about his raids and how to beat Incarnate Forme Thundurus. Before that, you need to have a solid counter team, so here is a list of the best. As an Electric/Flying Pokemon, Incarnate Form Thundurus is one of the rarest types in the games, the only other than Thundurus forms being Emolga. Due to being a flying type, Incarnate Forme Thundurus shares most of the same major weaknesses as Landorus and Tornadus, which are both Rock and Ice. But be sure to read below the table to find out the rare exceptions and special cases that appear, because so much was added to Pokémon GO before April and May 2022.

Considering it hasn't been too long since we've seen Incarnate Forme Thundurus in raids, nothing much has changed. Taking a Shadow version of any of the Pokemon above will always be recommended over the regular version. The best Mega is obviously Mega Abomasnow, which can be incredibly useful with a set of powder snow and weather ball moves. Now let's move on to the complete Incarnate Forme Thundurus raid guide below.

Pokémon GO Incarnate Forme Thundurus Raid Guide

Here are some of the frequently asked questions and important tips about Incarnate Forme Thundurus raids in Pokémon GO for April and May 2022.

When Incarnate Forme Thundurus raids start and end in April and May 2022

Incarnate Forme Thundurus will begin appearing in five-star raids in Pokémon GO on Tuesday, April 27 at 10 a.m. local time. There's no specific time announced for the raids to start, but it will likely leave just before Xerneas arrives next week.

How many players are needed

As before, Incarnate Forme Thundurus is one of the easiest five-star raids due to its weakness to Ice and Rock attacks. Having two high level players, best friends and with the best counters can probably beat Incarnate Forme Thundurus, but it's not exactly recommended. For this reason, we recommend having at least three or four players, especially if you don't have a higher level or have the best counters.

What time stimulates Thundurus incarnate form and counters

Incarnate Forme Thundurus is empowered by rainy and windy weather which increases his CP, making him harder to take down. Incarnate Forme Thundurus' electric moves will be especially strong in rainy weather, so you might be better off doing it outside of those if you're having trouble. Fighting in snow or cloudy conditions will give ice and rock attacks a boost, though finding snow conditions will likely be quite difficult this time of year in the US at least.

Which CP for 100% IV for Incarnate Forme Thundurus

Without gales, Incarnate Forme Thundurus will be encountered at 1828 CP to 1911 CP. The higher CP means he's 100% perfect in terms of IV, so you should do your best to nab him if you're lucky enough to find one. On sunny and windy days, this range drops from 2285 CP to 2389 CP instead, putting it at level 25 when captured.

Can Thundurus Incarnate Form Shiny, How to Get Shiny Thundurus Incarnate Form

Yes, the shiny Incarnate Forme Thundurus is possible to catch in April and May 2022 in Pokémon GO, although the shiny Incarnate Forme Thundurus is also available in March. There's nothing special involving an improved shine rate, so keep raiding until you come across one with the usual 20 rating.
