A storm is coming to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, as well as Sun and Moon. Two new legendary Pokémon are making their way to the games. Tornadus and Thunderus are legendaries from the Unova region. Players in North America who have Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Sun can add Thundurus between July 13-28.
Those with Ultra Moon or Moon can add Tornadus during those dates as well. In order to obtain them, you must go to Target to receive codes for them. Their release is part of The Pokémon Company’s Year of Legendary Pokémon celebration. Through November of 2018, the company is releasing legendary pocket monsters for free. Classic names like Entei and Raikou were released earlier this year.
In November, Lugia and Ho-Oh will close out the celebration. When it comes to Thundurus and Tornadus’ skill set, it will differ depending on which game you own. If you own Ultra Sun, Thundurus will be level 100, have a gold bottle cap as an item, and his moves include thunderbolt, grass knot, focus blast, and nasty plot. If you own Sun, Thundurus will be level 60, will not come with an item, and will have moves like Discharge, Crunch, and Charge.
Nasty Plot is the only move that is a part of his move list in both games. The same thing applies to Tornadus. In Ultra Moon, he is a level 100, has a gold bottle cap as an item. But his moves are different in both games, with tailwind being the universal move in his arsenal. In Ultra Moon, Tornadus’ can use hurricane, heat wave, grass knot, and tailwind.
In Moon, his attacks are Air Slash, Crunch, Tailwind, and Rain Dance. To see what other legendary characters are coming as the month’s progress, you can visit the company’s website to see which ones are coming out when. Once on the page for Thundurus and Tornadus, you can view steps on how to redeem your code(s) for them.
