Tornadus’ Raid Counters

Going into the Tornadus Raid, trainers will need Pokemon with a high defensive stat or strong type advantage attacks. This round of Therian Forme Tornadus raids will grant players the chance to find a Shiny Tornadus; it is one of the Legendary Pokemon to take down in Pokemon Go with three weaknesses. The Tornadus raid can be easily completed by a team of 2 to 4 trainers; a team of 5 to 20 trainers will destroy the raid and make for a better completionist bonus. Using Mega Pokemon such as Mega Manectric, Mega Abomasnow, or Mega Aerodactyl will make trainers’ lives easier. Ultimately, you will want to use Ice, Electric, or Rock-type Pokemon.
