Thundurus (Therian)- Bolt Strike Pokémon

Thundurus (Therian) is weak to the following types: x1 Ice, x1 Rock. Generally speaking, the best counters for it are:Rampardos, Rhyperior and Terrakion. Thundurus (Therian) can be beaten by 2 players in optimal weather, with max friendship and perfect level 40 counters or by 4 unfriended players using level 20 counters from this guide. When caught, Thundurus (Therian) will be between 2002 and 2091 cp without a weather boost. In Rainy weather, Thundurus (Therian) will be between 2503 and 2614 when caught.


There are a couple classes of unique pokemon that are more difficult to use than others, they have been filtered out here to not clog up the counters too much. These pokemon are much more resource expensive than other options.
 • Shadow Mamoswine– Best in General simulations.
 • Shadow Weavile– Great in General simulations.
 • Shadow Tyranitar– Great in General simulations.
 • Shadow Mewtwo– Great in General simulations.

Accessibility will be a bit tough if you are only starting now as Larvitars do not nest and are rare. They are also in 10k eggs. Tier 4 Tyranitar Raids were a staple for quite a while, however. Larvitar can be found in ‘Make 3 Excellent Throws in a Row’ Quests. The family was last in raid bosses during Water Festival in Sept 2019. Larvitar community day (the only time you could get Smack Down) was June 2018. It isn’t the highest raw DPS Dark-Type anymore, but it has a ton of bulk on top of near optimal DPS. Weavile and Honchkrow trade with it depending on the matchup. With Level 35 Tyranitar you need 3 players.

After acquiring enough Eevee candy, Glaceon can be acquired in one of two ways: Either, you get a Glacial Lure Module and evolve Eevee while within its boundaries, or you use a ONE TIME USE naming trick, naming your Eevee “Rea” prior to evolving.
