Tornadus Therian Moveset Analysis
Just like Thundurus Therian, Tornadus Therian also received a moveset update. So what’s in store for thismonster?
|Fast Moves||Charge Moves|
Gust and Hurricane gain STAB and is undoubtedly an upgrade over its earlier Air Slash. While Gust does do decent damage per see, it is resisted by your Electric and Rock type counters and does only neutral damage against your Ice types. With Tornadys-T’s lacklustre stats, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Astonish is just one of the worst fast moves in the game. Even a pillow would hit harder.
Heat Wave and Psychic aren’t too much of a worry unless your counter is an Ice type wherein Heat Wave can do quite a number.
Focus Blast can KO your Rock and Ice types. But it is quite easy to be dodged.
All in all, Tornadus Therian isn’t exactly going to be a difficult raid boss to face. We all have enough Electric and Rock types already so that this type legendary monster is nothing more than just a breeze!
Will it be meta relevant? Honestly, no. With underwhelming stats and a solo typing that isn’t all that mighty, this only pure Pokémon is more or less a collectible.type
