Thundurus is one of the legendary flyers of Unova who constantly circle the land. It has the ability to drop lightning bolts to destroy crops. It appeared to Elesa when she was a young girl, and also showed up next to the Nimbasa Gym during Black's Gym challenge. It then appeared to White and Shauntal when it ended up on the same route as Tornadus, and the two began to fight. Finally, Landorus appeared to pacify them, but they were all captured by Giallo of Team Plasma and used against the Gymleaders at Nacrene afterwards.
