The second in a trio of Legendary Pokemon from the Unova region, Thundurus, will be available to fight in Pokemon GO Raid Battles starting March 2, according to Niantic.

If you managed to catch Thundurus, you’re probably wondering what its max CP and stats are and whether or not it’s worth powering up. Well look no further. Here’s Tornadus’ Max CP and stats, according to GamePress:

Max CP at Level 40: 3,345
Lowest CP at Level 40: 2,917

Max CP at Level 20: 1,911
Lowest CP at Level 20: 1,666

Attack: 266
Defense: 164
Stamina: 188

Type: Flying & Electric

Resistances: Bug, Fighting, Flying, Grass, Ground, Steel
Weaknesses: Ice, Rock

Quick Moves: Astonish, Thunder Shock
Charge Moves: Crunch, Thunder, Brick Break, Thunder Punch

Fun Fact: Thundurus has the same max CP and stats as Tornadus.

Is Thundurus worth powering up? No. The thing that makes or breaks an electric-type Pokemon is its access to Wild Charge, by far the best electric-type Charge Move and overall an excellent move thanks to it’s high damage combined with the flexibility of its two energy bars. While Thundurus’ attack is decent, it’s strongest electric-type Charge Move is the mediocre Thunder, and it’s other moves aren’t much better. Even Pokemon like Luxray and Magnezone have Thundurus beat.

Now Thundurus also has a second form known as the Therian form which has 295 attack according to GamePress. Looking at the website’s DPS (damage per second) spreadsheet, this boost in attack might be enough to put it just behind the other notable electric-type attackers like Electivire and Raikou. However, just like with Tornadus we may only get its Incarnate form with 266 attack right now.

In other news, Niantic will hold special Raid weekends throughout the whole month of March. Darkrai will be available from March 6 to 9, Altered Form Giratina from March 13 to 16, Cobalion from March 20 to 23 and Lugia from March 27 to 30. Players will have the chance to catch their shiny forms during those times. In addition, Cobalion and Lugia caught during their times will know an exclusive attack, Sacred Sword for Cobalion and Aeroblast for Lugia.

In addition to the Darkrai Raid weekend, the game will hold a Team GO Rocket takeover event from March 6 to 9. During that time, poison- and dark-type Pokemon along with Pokemon associated with Team GO Rocket will appear more often in the wild. The Raid-exclusive Pokemon Absol will appear in the wild during the event. Then on March 7 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., Team GO Rocket Grunts and Leaders will be more active.

During the Cobalion Raid weekend, a brand new Special Research quest will become available. In addition, normal-, fire-, water-, electric- and ice-type Pokemon will appear more often in the wild and Nincada will also appear in the wild as well as 5 km Eggs. Karrablast and Shelmet will hatch more often from 5 km Eggs during the event.

Then during the Lugia Raid weekend, Solosis and Gothita will make their debut in the game. Solosis will be available in the wild during the day and Gothita will be available during the evening. Both Pokemon can also be found in 5 km Eggs. Psychic-type Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild, Raids and 2 km Eggs.
