Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Prankster: Incarnate Forme only. Any moves Tornadus uses that don't do direct damage have their priority increased. These moves fail if used on a Dark Type however.
  • Defiant: Incarnate Forme only. Should Tornadus receive any stat drops from his opponents his attack will be increased per stat drop.
  • Regenerator: Therian Forme only. Tornadus's health is restored by 33.3% of his maximum health when he spends enough time away from combat.
  • Thrash: Tornadus thrashes around and attacks for a while. If there are multiple opponents each series of attacks will be directed to one of them at random. This leaves Tornadus confused afterwards.
  • Hammer Arm: Tornadus hammers down one of his arms or legs, depending on the Forme, onto the opponent. This lowers Tornadus's speed.
