Tornadus, the legendary Cyclone Pokemon first introduced during the Gen-5 Black and White era of Pokemon games, is back in Pokemon GO. Specifically, it's the Incarnate Tornadus. However, there is a deadline. Let's get into how to get one in this Tornadus Pokemon GO guide.

Right now, the way to get Incarnate Tornadus in Pokemon GO is by finding and challenging it in one of the Five-Star raids spread across the Pokemon GO map. However, these raids are only available until Wednesday, 8 March at 10AM local time. 

Although a rare find and a difficult battle if you take Tornadus on, this raid should be doable with a team of 2-4 trainers. What's more, there's a chance you could encounter a Shiny Tornadus as well, so it will be more than worth the wait. 

With its sole Flying typing as confirmed by Leekduck, you and your team should be more than capable of taking on this raid if you all bring Pokemon with Electric, Ice, and Rock-type moves. 

In terms of moveset, potential Fast Moves for the Pokemon GO Tornadus will either be Air Slash or Bite. Meanwhile, Tornadus' Charge Moves will either be Hurricane, Hyper Beam, Grass Knot, or Dark Pulse. 

That's all you need to know thanks to this Incarntate Tornadus Pokemon GO guide.
