How to catch Thundurus - Pokémon Legends: Arceus

In most Pokémon games, finishing the main story is only the beginning and there's plenty for you to unlock after that. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is no exception, allowing players to gather even more Pokémon after finishing the main path.


Before you start looking for Thundurus, you'll need to actually unlock the ability to go found them, which is Request #94 in the game. Here's how you can unlock that request:


  1. Finish the main story, which culminates in Mission 18: The Counterpart.
  2. Head back to Jubilife Village.
  3. Complete Mission 20: The Researcher of Myths.
  4. From here, you'll need to take on multiple missions, from Mission 21 through Mission 26
  5. You'll have to gather various plates from Legendary Pokémon, including the Lake Guardians, Heatran, Cresselia, and Regigigas.
  6. Once you've finished Mission 26, head to Galaxy Hall.
  7. Speak with Cogita

You've now unlocked the ability to take on Request 94: Incarnate Forces of Hisui. We highly recommend making sure all of your Pokémon are at least Level 60, or higher if possible. All four of these particular Legendary Pokémon are Level 70, so you'll have your work cut out for you.


Turn on manual saves

Before we continue, you'll likely want to turn on manual saves, instead of relying on the autosave system. The reason for this is simple: This way, if you accidentally knock one of these Pokémon out instead of catching them, you can fall back to a save from before starting the fight.

  1. Open settings.
  2. Scroll down to Autosave.
  3. Select Disabled.
  4. Manually save the game.

How to catch Thundurus

  1. Head to the Cobalt Coastlands.
  2. Proceed to the ocean area close by Sand's Reach.
  3. Wait for a Thunderstorm. This is critical, as Thundurus will only appear during said storm.
  4. If you need to, keep resting at your camp until there's a thunderstorm.
  5. Use a manual save, as detailed above.
  6. Head out onto the ocean area and approach Thundurus. Thundurus (Level70) Weaknesses: Ice, Rock
  7. Avoid the tornados thrown your way.
  8. Throw stunning items at Thundurus.
  9. Once the barrier is down, throw your Pokémon and start a fight
  10. Wear Thundurus down and start throwing your best Poké Balls.
