The second of Forces of Nature's three Legendary Characters is returning to raids soon in Pokémon GO. This time it's the Incarnate form Tornadus, the original form of the Flying-type Pokémon. Although it's appeared in raids before, a lot has changed in the game, so here's our Pokémon GO Tornadus (Incarnate) raid guide giving you the best counters in March 2022.


Best Incarnate Form Tornado Counters in March 2022

Our complete Tornadus (Incarnate) raid guide is below. There we will try to answer all the most relevant and frequently asked questions by players. But the most important thing during a legendary raid battle is to have a strong team of top counters against Pokemon. So here are our picks for the best Incarnate Form Tornado tokens in Pokémon GO for March 2022. (Note: see below for Mega and Shadow Pokémon)


Pokémon fast attack Charged Attack
Zekrom charging beam Wild Charge
Ramps Smack down Landslide
magnetone Spark Wild Charge
Electivire thunder clap Wild Charge
Rhyperior Smack down rock wrecker
Raikou Volt switch Wild Charge
Zapdos thunder clap Thunder clap

These are just the standard counters though. If you want to Mega Evolve or have a Shadow Pokémon with the right move, there are more options. Shadow Raikou, Zapdos, Magnezone, and Electivire with the above moves are ideal. Shadow Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche and Shadow Tyranitar with Smack Down and Stone Edge are also good counter picks.



For your Mega Pokémon, you can use Mega Ampharos, but they're not much better than the choices above, so save your Energy if you want. Now let's move on to the full Incarnate Forme Tornadus raid guide below.

Here are some frequently asked questions and important tips about Incarnate Forme Tornadus Raids in Pokémon GO for March 2022.

When do Incarnate Tornado Form Raids start and end?

Incarnate Forme Tornadus will begin appearing in Pokémon GO Legendary Raids on Saturday, March 6 at 8 a.m. in your local time zone. It will be available for five days, departing Thursday, March 11 at 8 a.m. to make way for Thundurus.

How many players are needed

With everything on their side, two players can defeat Tornadus (Incarnate) on their own. This includes a solid team of counters above, all powered up to level 40 or close. They must be best friends and may even wish the weather was perfect (see below). However, most players won't have all of this going for them, so we recommend joining a party of four or more trainers to take on Incarnate Forme Tornadus.

What weather stimulates tornadoes and embodied form counters

Here's how the weather will impact your battle with Incarnate Forme Tornadus in Pokémon GO.

  • Wind ‚Äď Boosts Tornadus (Incarnate) and his flying attacks
  • Sunny/Clear ‚Äď Increases Tornado grass attacks
  • Partly Cloudy ‚Äď Increases Tornadus normal attacks, but also your Rock counters
  • Rain ‚Äď Increases Electric Meters
  • Snow ‚Äď Increases ice counters

With windy weather you will face a stronger tornado, so see below for more details.



Which CP for 100% IV for Incarnate Form Tornadus

Below are the CP ranges for Incarnate Forme Tornadus as of March 2022.

  • No weather boost: 1828 to 1911 CP
  • Windy weather: 2285 to 2389 CP

So if you see those higher numbers, be sure to use a Golden Razz Berry and do whatever you can to catch it, as it will have 100% perfect IVs. And if it's brilliant, so much the better.

Can the incarnated form of the tornado be shiny, how to get the incarnated shiny form of the tornado

Yes, Shiny Tornado (Incarnate) is available in Pokémon GO for March 2022. Shiny odds are the usual one in twenty players have seen before, although this can always change and is measured by player feedback, so that's not correct. If you want a shiny tornado, you need to do as many raids as possible while they're available.
