Incarnate Forme Thundurus Raid Counters

Going into the Incarnate Forme Thundurus raid, trainers will need a team of Pokemon with type effective moves, well-rounded Pokemon, or high defensive stats. Overall, Incarnate Forme Thundurus is a heavy hitting Flying, Electric-type Pokemon. Thankfully it is easy to take down due to its vulnerabilities, low defense,  and average health stat.

The raid can be easily completed by a team of 3 to 6 trainers; a team of 6 to 12 trainers can take it down quicker and a team of 8 to 20 trainers can burn through it making a better completionist bonus.
