Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus are all available in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and Thundurus is perhaps the most difficult to obtain of the three. In order to spawn the Pokémon in the first place, you’ll need to have beaten the game and watched the end credits. Enter Galaxy Hall afterward, and you’ll take on Request #94: The Incarnate Forces of Hisui. This time around we’re focusing on Thundurus, who can only be found roaming the Cobalt Coastlands during a specific weather condition.
After you’ve accepted Request #94, Thundurus will appear in the Cobalt Coastlands. More specifically, it will appear near the claw-like rock structure found near Sand’s Reach. It’s the one you have to cross between to catch Manaphy. Furthermore, Thundurus only appears there during a thunderstorm. If it isn’t already storming when you arrive at the Cobalt Coastlands, you’ll need to wait until it is. To do this, rest at the camp over and over until the weather changes. If it’s currently daytime, rest until nighttime and vice versa. Please note that resting “for a little while” won’t do anything!
Just like Tornadus, Thundurus creates an electrical shield around it when encountered. Fortunately, all you need to do is throw something at the shield and it’ll temporarily disappear. For that one split-second where Thundurus is stunned, you can toss your Poké Ball to initiate a battle. That way it won’t run away and you can keep throwing Poké Balls at it over and over again.
