Tornadus (Japanese: トルネロス Tornelos) is a Flying-type Legendary Pokémon.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any Pokémon, it has a second Forme activated by using the Reveal Glass. Its original Forme, Incarnate Forme, will then become Therian Forme.

Its Therian Forme was officially revealed May 12, 2012.

Along with Thundurus and Landorus, it is a part of the Forces of Nature.

Biology

In Incarnate Forme, Tornadus is a green, muscular humanoid Pokémon, which resembles a genie. It is a male-only species with no female counterpart. On its forehead are two, purple, long and sharp horns. Tornadus has white, wavy and billowy styled hair, a spiky white mustache and two pointed green ears on either side of its head. Its eyes are yellow with beady white irises and no visible pupils. The front of Tornadus' body is covered in various, irregularly shaped purple spots. Its broad, purple chest consists of two joined, partially diamond shaped pectorals and its shoulders, elbows and navel are adorned with raindrop like designs. It has two spotted muscular arms, with five fingers on each hand. Its lower body consists of a trailing cloud, with a purple long, curling tail, tipped with a whirl. Spanning the length of its tail, Tornadus has several whorled structures. They are a light Khaki color, and follow the same direction as the tip of its tail.

In Therian Forme, Tornadus is a large, green, bipedal, long-necked, bird-like Pokémon. It now lacks any visible ears, and the horns on its forehead have become thinner and crest-like. Tornadus' hair is also now crest-like, and the direction of its hair whirl is reversed. The style of its hair is now more relaxed as well, proudly flowing down its long neck. Tornadus' mustache now takes on a more beak-like appearance, puffing out on the edges like coarse plumage against its cheeks. Its eyes remain yellow, but with larger irises which still lack visible pupils. Its chest is now fuller, but remains largely unchanged, while its navel is now bejeweled with a red gem. Tornadus' arms have now become large spanning, feathered wings; each possessing thumbs and five large, purple tipped primary feathers. It has two strong legs and sharp talons, each with three sharp purple claws and one dewclaw. Tornadus' tail remains largely unchanged, although it appears slightly longer and less curved than before. On its lower back, it has a large trailing cloud-like puff.

Tornadus can travel at speeds of 200 miles per hour (300 kilometers per hour). It can also whip up storms with its tail, and is able to blow away houses.

Major appearances

Tornadus (anime)

A Tornadus debuted in the main series in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1. He appeared in Milos Island's legend and then attacked unexpectedly when Ash, his friends and Lewis tried to summon Landorus. Once Thundurus appeared, the two engaged in a fierce battle. He then appeared in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 2, where he ultimately was calmed by Landorus.

Tornadus appeared in both of his Formes in Unova's Survival Crisis!, where he was summoned to the Abyssal Ruins by Giovanni and sent on a rampage alongside Thundurus and Landorus. Eventually, he was freed by Meloetta and departed.

Minor appearances

Tornadus made his debut in a cameo appearance in the credits of White - Victini and Zekrom.

In the manga

Tornadus in Pokémon Adventures

In the Be the Best! Pokémon B+W manga

Monta chases after a Tornadus who he wants to capture. As Tornadus kept fleeing each time, he was difficult for Monta to catch. Using his newly-evolved Watchog, Monta was finally able to capture him.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Tornadus, along with Thundurus and Landorus, is captured by Giallo in the Pokémon Adventures manga. He was first seen battling with Thundurus at the Battle Subway before his capture, and was later given to the Shadow Triad to be used to battle the Gym Leaders at Nacrene City. He made another appearance at the Pokémon League under Hood Man's control.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

A Tornadus appeared in Pocket Monsters BW.

Trivia

  • Tornadus is the only pure Flying-type Pokémon. However, other Pokémon are able to temporarily become pure Flying types through their Abilities or moves, such as Kecleon and Arceus.
    • This also makes it the only single-type Pokémon with a unique type combination.
  • Tornadus and Thundurus have identical base stat distribution in their Incarnate Formes.
  • Tornadus is the only single-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation V.
  • When Tornadus appears on Route 7 in Pokémon Black, Thundurus's cry is heard.
  • In an interview with Nintendo Dream, Ken Sugimori revealed that Tornadus was originally intended to be red.
  • Prior to Generation VI, Tornadus's Therian Forme had the same body style as its Incarnate Forme.

Origin

In Incarnate Forme, Tornadus is based on Fūjin, the kami of wind. It may also have drawn inspiration from genies.

In Therian Forme, Tornadus seems to be based on a bird of prey, most likely an eagle, vulture or other large avian species. It may also draw inspiration from the Vermilion Bird of the Chinese Four Symbols constellation, or from Huitzilopochtli, a god from the Aztec mythology that resembles a hummingbird.

Name origin

Tornadus and Tornelos may be derived from tornado and Aeolus, ruler of the winds in Greek mythology.
