Catching legendaries in the post-game of Pokemon Legends Arceus stands as one of the most engaging activities for completionists. There’s something about domesticating and taming deities of their realm that provides a great sense of accomplishment. Thundurus is one of three genies which serve as prerequisites for the request, Incarnate Forces of Hisui. The other two are Landurus and Tornadus. To help players out, this guide will go over how to catch Thundurus in Pokemon Legends Arceus

To be able to accept Incarnate Forces of Hisui, players must finish Seeking the Remaining Plates. In essence, they must finish the fight against Volo alongside the encounter with Giratina. Players must have already caught Azelf, Mesprit, Uxie, Heatran, Cresselia, and Regigias in the post-game. For players who haven’t reached this stage in the post game, check the link above for more information.
Go to Jubilife Village, and talk to Cogita in the Galaxy Hall. This begins a cut scene, after which the Request begins. The mission requires players to catch Thundurus, Tornadus, and Landorus, then complete their pokedex entries.
To find Thundurus, go to the Cobalt Coastlands next to the large horns. In essence, the section north of Sand Reach’s towards the eastern region of the map. This task requires swimming on Basculegion. But one big caveat, Thundurus only appears during a thunderstorm. So prepare to camp and rest until the weather conditions are right.
Thundurus begins the fight enraged, throwing out tornados that prevent immediately approaching the legendary. Since the player will be on Basculegion, they will not be able to dodge roll. Instead, accelerate and jump to avoid the tornados. Then, players will need to stun Thundurus by throwing balls at it. This will create a window of opportunity for the player to follow up with a pokemon throw, triggering the battle.
Thundurus is Electric and Flying type, so plan accordingly.
Here are the other Legendary guides
Unlike the other mainline pokemon games, Pokemon Legends Arceus allows players to reattempt Legendary encounters if the player accidentally kills them. In other words, don’t worry too much about saving beforehand, and perfecting the catch on the first try. Returning to Jubilife City and then heading back to the area should respawn Thundurus. There’s a ton more to do outside of attempting to catch the post-game Legendaries.
