Therian Forme Thundurus Weakness Pokemon GO - Raid Guide and Best Counters March 2021

Here's how you can take down Therian Forme Thundurus in Pokemon GO.

As part of Pokemon GO’s new Charge Up event, we get our FOURTH five-star raid boss change since the beginning of March.

We’ve already gone through the Incarnate Formes of Landorus, Tornadus and Thundurus and now, we’re encountering the Therian Formes of the Forces of Nature trio. This is the first time these Formes have appeared in the game.

The first of this new trio to appear in battle is none other than Therian Forme Thundurus, followed by Tornadus and then, most likely, Landorus.

With that in mind, let’s check out Therian Forme Thundurus weakness and how to take it down in Pokemon GO.

Therian Forme Thundurus Weakness Pokemon GO

Thundurus has an unusual typing, being joint Flying and Electric-type. This leaves it with two major weaknesses exploit – Rock and Ice. Let’s take a look at the best counters for Therian Forme Thundurus raids.

Best Counters For Therian Forme Thundurus Weakness

As stated, Therian Forme Thundurus has weaknesses to both Ice and Rock-type Pokemon.

In terms of Mega Pokemon Mega Abomasnow is the only real viable option. Unfortunately, however, it does suffer double damage against Thundurus’ Flying-type moves. It still could be worth the risk though, as it will provide a boost to other trainers Ice-type Pokemon.

Rock-type Pokemon are the best bet here. Consider bringing Rhyperior, Rampardos, Tyranitar and Terrakion from this typeset, just be aware of Thundurus’ Fighting-type move which will deal considerable damage to these Pokemon.

Aside from Rock-type Pokemon, players should bring Ice-types to Therian Forme Thundurus raids. Galarian Darmanitan, Mamoswine, Weavile and Glaceon are your top four picks here.

Mega Abomasnow – Powder Snow/Weather Ball
Rhyperior – Smack Down/Rock Wrecker
Rampardos – Smack Down/Rock Slide
Tyranitar – Smack Down/Stone Edge
Terrakion – Smack Down/Rock Slide
Galarian Darmanitan – Ice Fang/Avalanche

Mamoswine – Powder Snow/Avalanche
Weavile – Ice Shard/Avalanche
Glaceon – Frost Breath/Avalanche

It’s recommended that you have at least three/four trainers with a party of the above counters at high levels.
