642T.png Due to special coding in place in the article to illustrate Thundurus's forms, certain displays will change showing Thundurus as though it were in Therian Forme. This will only affect the artwork shown in the infobox, the EV yield shown on the page itself, the anime image shown, and the base stats entry which is unhidden. This changes every day, so when the time comes, click here to return to the page and change the display.

Oh snap

Do all the Pokémon in the No Eggs group need the little breeding template to tell that they have no egg moves? If so, I just screwed up royally. --AndyPKMN 11:45, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't think so. --SnorlaxMonster 15:44, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Thank goodness! I had been removing the breeding section from Pokémon in the "No Eggs" group, and then saw that... I thought I had made seven or so counterproductive edits! What a relief! --AndyPKMN 17:19, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Romanized name

This dudes romanized name is 'Boltroth'

Or Voltroth, Boltoros, Boltlos, Voltloth or Voltlus, as Dogasu says or many other names.--でんのう Zえんし 16:47, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Not Tornelos cry

In the trivia part, it says that its Tornelos cry that is heard on route 7. I've just been at that part, but it was Voltolos cry I heard, not Tornelos. So that should be removed. --Mattii 16:31, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

You have a point. Someone must have just mixed up their (admittedly similar) cries. I just removed it. --RiverAura 17:15, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Official source. Thundurus is based on a Raijin.

The source is Nintendo Dream vol.205. Sawamular101 02:25, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

This may be a name source for Thundurus...

I think Thundurus' name also comes from the cloud name "cirrus".

Every one of the Kami Trio's names end in -us, and the beginning of Thundurus's name very clearly comes from Thunder. Alt + F4 13:39, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
I doubt it. The -us is most likely from Aeolus. ----神智の超龍對話 14:46, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
I doubt it. The kami trio is a collective term to refer to the all-male trio of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. They are based on kami in Japanese myth - Fūjin, the kami of wind, Raijin, the kami of thunder, and Inari, the kami of fertility, respectively
While a good guess, we (supposedly?) know what each is based on, so I don't see where Aeolus comes in. Alt + F4 15:57, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
There is a possible relationship, as Aeolus is the ruler of wind in Greek mythology. Aeolus is written as アイオロス, and the kami trio's Japanese names all end with -ロス. And it really wasn't a guess, I just got the idea from Dogasu. ----神智の超龍對話 16:11, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Alternative form pic

Here, I have a picture of his other form, I got it from pokebeach, so it may not be reliable. thundurus-sacred-beast-forme.jpg Khimerami 00:59, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

We have all of the images, but thank you. Ataro 01:01, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Reijuu Forme Origin help

Oh boy, I had no trouble with the other two; however, Thundurus seems to be based on multiple animals instead of just one like Landorus and Tornadus.

So far, it is pretty obvious that the Reijuu Formes for the three follows as Landorus = Mammalian (Feline), Tornadus = Avian (Bird) and Thundurus = Reptilian (Lizard.)

While Thundurus has many characteristics of a Lizard, most particularly a Dinosaur/ has ears. I don't know if a lizard exists with ears like that, but obviously they're not a typical reptilian feature. I mean Tornadus loses its visible ears in Reijuu forme, because bird don't have ears like that.

I made mention of it also having Centaur-like aspects as well. I know there will be lots and lots of naysayers on the observation, maybe now, maybe not right away, but soon. Likely, sooner or later someone also will pull out the infamous "SPECULATION" card. However, if you take a few seconds to think and look, you'll see it too.

Now it's Horn is very Unicorn like, and I believe there have been a few Unicorn-like Centaurs illustrated at one time or another. It also has horse-shaped ears, you could also argue it has a man (don't know why i wrote hair, the old article said mane) and its body shape looks pretty similar to the centaur statues of old. Plus it's lower body is drastically diffent from its upper body, right at the waist like a Centaur's human body ends, and the horse begins. The only difference is that, instead of walking on hooves, it has reptilian feet.

But here's where it gets even more tricky, someone could easily make the argument that it has electric eel basis...which common sense will tell you why.

Also it could be argued it has rhinoceros aspects as well because they have one horn, and ears. Plus while the Keshin have Genie basis, which come from the middle east, there were probably some rhinoceros somewhere there.

Plus Landorus' mustache became fangs, Tornados' became a beak. So if it has rhinoceros in it, then looking at it's Reijuu form, it could be said that the front of it's mustache is a horn now. (I wrote turned up snout, but the rhinoceros thing didn't pop into my head until wikiing Unicorns)

So, before we set anything into stone; I think we need to weigh all figure out how to word it. Thundurus had to be a punk and be different; Tornados and Landorus' Reijuu Origin were easy because you could copy paste and switch one species for the other.

So everyone wanting to help, go wiki Centaur, Velociraptor, Unicorn, rhinoceros and whatever the Entei else you guys can think of. So good luck and Godspeed, because I got a feeling Thundurus has cursed us with a long and difficult job as Pokéologists. Yamitora1 02:48, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Thundurus looks very much like a Satyr in my opinion. A Faun is another possibility, but the Satyrs depicted on Wikipedia have the long tail, unlike Fauns. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:56, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
I'd like to think that the Reijuu forms are based of the chinese constellation four symbols. With Tornadus being the bird, Landorus being the Tiger and Thundurus being the Dragon.--ForceFire 03:08, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
I can't believe I forgot all about Satyrs when I have a sketch book with an entire water starter evolution line based on them. Anyways I think you are correct in that assumption Force Fire. Dragon would be a very accurate description. Although I have a feeling more people will accept it being a abomination of a lizard and a Satyr over it being just a dragon without being a dragon-type.
Well whatever the case, I agree that they seem based on the four benevolent animals, so that should be added to the Origins of all the Kami trio. Also, we might need to watch the Landorus article. it doesn't take a psychic-type to foresee that people will question his mastership with the possibility of a 4th kami in gen 6.

Thunder is just God bowling in Heaven

I was looking over the descriptions I wrote for Thunderus' Physiology way back when we were first allowed to edit Bulbapedia again, and something about his tail description (no pun intended) sparked memories of an Old saying; "Thunder is just God bowling in Heaven."

So, here's my question to you all...would it be considered too speculative to say that the ball-like structures spanning the length of his tail could be based on bowling balls in the Origin section? Yamitora1 (talk) 14:24, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
