Overview

Thundurus is the second member of the Forces of Nature, and it's not a particularly easy duo. While its counters provide ample damage for a duo, it tends to hit back hard enough to force relobies. That said, this fight is largely matchup-dependent, with some moves being very duoable with its main counters, while others provide much more of a challenge.

Approach

  • Try to scout out its moveset. Brick Break in particular can make a duo exceptionally hard, as it hits every major counter for Super Effective damage
  • Try for advantageous weather. Partly Cloudy is common in many areas, and can help make this duo a breeze
  • Front-load your best DPS options

Battling Strategy

  • If using high DPS options such as Rampardos, then prioritize dodging in order to avoid a relobby
  • If using lower DPS options, tank some hits to generate more energy and keep your DPS up.
  • Try not to faint with too much energy held
