This year has already introduced a lot of new things for Pokemon Go players with it still being relatively early in 2021. This new content will be continuing with the Therian Formes of Landorus, Thundurus, and Tornadus releasing next month.
While Landorus, Thundurus, and Tornadus have already been available in the game, players recently could only gather them in their Incarnate Formes. With the upcoming Season of Legends event beginning on March 1 however, players will be able to capture these Pokemon in their alternate forms.
The Therian Formes of the Pokemon trio called Forces of Nature work in the same way as the Altered and Origin Formes of Giratina. While the various forms share the same typing, they will probably have different base stats and skillsets.
Even though fans will get the chance to capture these Pokemon with the Season of Legends event beginning on the first day of March, they will still need to beat them in a raid battle first. With all three being Legendary raid bosses, they will not be easily taken down. Because of this, players will need the help of nearby players or players with remote raid passes to join.
Therian Tornadus mostly deserts its humanoid look from its Incarnate Forme to rather appear in a more bird-like state. It is a pure Flying-type Pokemon, making it extremely weak to Electric, Rock, and Ice moves. Tornadus in all of their forms are resistant to Ground, Bug, Grass, and Fighting moves.
Meanwhile, Therian Thundurus keeps its humanoid appearance while changing its stance to still look different from its Incarnate Forme. This Legendary has a dual typing – Electric and Flying – making it’s only weak to Rock and Ice moves. Therian Thundurus has resistances to Flying, Bug, Grass, Steel, Fighting, and Ground moves.
Lastly, players will also be able to encounter the Therian Forme of Landorus. The biggest change between this Pokemon’s Incarnate and Therian Forme is that it becomes a lion-like quadrupedal Pokemon in its Therian Forme while its Incarnate Forme being far more humanoid. This Pokemon also has dual typing – Ground and Flying – which only makes it weak to Water and Ice moves. Therian Landorus resists Ground, Poison, Bug, Fighting, and Electric moves.
When going up against these Legendaries in future raids, it is essential for players to keep their weaknesses in mind. This will help trainers take these baddies down before the timer runs out during the raid battle.
