Thundurus (Japanese: ボルトロス Voltolos) is a dual-type Electric/Flying 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 Tornadus and Landorus, it is a part of the Forces of Nature.

Biology

In Incarnate Forme, Thundurus is a blue, muscular humanoid Pokémon, which resembles a genie. It is a male-only species with no female counterpart. On its head is a single, long, sharp, purple horn. Thundurus has white, zigzagging and jutting styled hair, a spiky white mustache and two pointed blue ears on either side of its head. Its eyes are yellow with beady white irises and no visible pupils. The front of Thundurus' body is covered in various, irregularly shaped purple spots. Its broad chest consists of two joined, purple, rounded-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 thick, long, curling, purple, cable-like tail. Spanning the length of its tail, Thundurus has several ball-like structures. They are a dark grey color, and each has a long, sharp spike on one side.

In Therian Forme, Thundurus is a large, blue, sleek, bipedal snake or dragon-like Pokémon. The horn on its head is now thicker and extends out more, while its ears become more pointy and pinned back. Thundurus' hair remains the same; the mustache now takes on a more raised snout and fanged-maw-like appearance, with two curving wisps flowing back and past its ears. Its eyes remain yellow, but with larger irises which still lack visible pupils. its chest remains broad and unchanged, while its navel is bejeweled with a blue gem. Thundurus' arms have lost much of their muscular bulk, and are now slimmer. It has two paw-like hands, each covered in a trailing cloud-like fluff and with three claw-tipped fingers. Thundurus' purple lower half is much smaller then its upper body, and consist of two hind-legs and its tail. Its feet are elongated, with three downward curved toes and claws. Thundurus' tail also remains largely unchanged, although it is thicker at the base and tapers off and becomes thinner toward the tip.

Thundurus can shoot thunderbolts from its tail.

Trivia

  • Thundurus and Tornadus have identical base stat distribution in their Incarnate Formes.
  • Thundurus' species, the Bolt Strike Pokémon, shares its name with the move Bolt Strike in both Japanese and English; however, it cannot learn the move, which is Zekrom's signature move.
  • Thundurus is the only one of the Forces of Nature that has a type advantage over one of them.
  • Prior to Generation VI, Thundurus's Therian Forme had the same body style as its Incarnate Forme.

Origin

In Incarnate Forme, Thundurus is based on Raijin, the kami of thunder and lightning. It may also have drawn inspiration from genies.

In Therian Forme, Thundurus seems to be based on a reptile, most likely a snake or dragon. It may also draw inspiration from the Azure Dragon and/or Black Tortoise of the Chinese Four Symbols constellation, or from Quetzalcoatl, a god from the Aztec mythology that resembles a feathered serpent.

Name Origin

Thundurus is from thunderous and possibly Aeolus, ruler of the winds in Greek mythology.

Voltolos is derived from volt and Αἴολος Aiolos (Greek name for Aeolus).
