Tornadus (Japanese: トルネロス Tornelos) appeared in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1, Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 2 and Unova's Survival Crisis! as Team Rocket's targets.

History

Long ago, Tornadus had a huge conflict with the Bolt Strike Pokémon: Thundurus. They battled over Milos Island and caused a lot of damage, endangering many people and Pokémon, untill Landorus appeared to break them up. With the help of a Gothorita, Landorus was soon able to calm Tornadus and his rival; sending them away from the island. Prior to this a shrine was erected on Milos Island to keep Tornadus from returning.

After Team Rocket destroyed Tornadus's shrine in The Mighty Accelguard to the Rescue!, he returned to Milos Island in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1 while Lewis and his Gothorita were praying for fertility at Landorus's obelisk. He instantly attacked Ash and co with his Hurricane attack and caused damage to the forest with Air Slash. While Ash, Iris and Lewis fled to check on Tornadus's shrine, the Cyclone Pokémon battled with Cilan and his Pansage. Being far stronger than Pansage, Tornadus was able to easily shrug of his Bullet Seed and SolarBeam before defeating him. Thundurus soon appeared, having also had his shrine destroyed by Team Rocket, and confronted Tornadus. The two begin fighting once again, while briskly smacking down Ash's Pikachu, Snivy, Iris's Excadrill and Cilan's Stunfisk, who were attempting to stop their fight. As a result of their battle, the island turned chaotic and many wild Pokémon fled, as Ash and the others went to pray again for Landorus's help.

In Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 2, Landorus appears before Tornadus and Thundurus, asking them to calm their rage, though to no avail. The battle became a three-way melee between the three legendary Pokémon, with neither of them showing signs of fatigue. Suddenly, Tornadus and his opponents were surrounded by small laser beams that formed a cage around each of them and they were brought up to Dr. Zager's helicopter. Despite their power, Tornadus and the others were unable to break free. A combination of Pikachu's Thunderbolt, Roggenrola's Flash Cannon, Axew's Dragon Rage, Emolga's Hidden Power and Pansage's SolarBeam that also proved unable to destroy the cages, managed to damage the helicopter, forcing Dr. Zager to drop the cargo hold and freeing the Kami trio. While Team Rocket fled, Tornadus resumed fighting his opponents and eventually managed to cause serious damage to Landorus alongside Thundurus. Having the Fertility Pokémon cornered, Tornadus and Thundurus prepared to finish Landorus off, but Lewis's Gothorita used Psychic to send him a Revival Herb; giving Landorus the strength to use Protect, repeating what happened before. Tornadus took a massive hit from Landorus's Hyper Beam, before then being healed and finally listening to reason.

Tornadus later helped rejuvenate Milos Island by summoning rain to help Landorus's seeds grow, and used Hurricane to spread the newly grown Revival Herb spore across Milos Island, before departing.

Tornadus in Therian Forme

In Unova's Survival Crisis!, Giovanni used the Reveal Glass to summon the trio, force them into their Therian Forme and control them. He battled aggressively in the skies with Iris's Dragonite, Cynthia's Garchomp, Ridley's Golurk and Cilan's Pansage under Giovanni's command and were still unable to control himself even after Team Rocket fled the scene. Eventually he was calmed by Meloetta's song and turned back to his Incarnate Forme before leaving.

History

Thundurus in Therian Forme

Long ago, Thundurus had a huge conflict with the Cyclone Pokémon: Tornadus. They battled over Milos Island and damaged the environment severely, putting the people and Pokémon that lived there in danger, until Landorus appeared to break them up. With the help of a Gothorita, Landorus was soon able to calm Thundurus and his opponent; banishing them from the island. Prior to this a shrine was built on Milos Island to keep Thundurus from returning.

After Team Rocket defiled Thundurus's shrine in A Call for Brotherly Love!, he returned to Milos Island in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1 and confronted Tornadus. The two began fighting once again swiftly smacking down Ash's Pikachu and Snivy, Iris's Excadrill, and Cilan's Stunfisk, who were trying to stop their fight.
