Trivia

  • Thundurus is the third Electric/Flying Pokémon, the others being Zapdos and Emolga.
  • Coincidentally, Zapdos and Thundurus are both part of legendary Trios and have the same types.
  • Thundurus resembles Raijin, god of lightning, thunder and storms in the Shinto religion and in Japanese mythology.
  • Thundurus's species happens to be one of Zekrom's signature moves, Bolt Strike.
  • It is said to be the only thing to make an entire lap around the Unova region in a day, but the player also can do this.
  • Thundurus, Zapdos, Zekrom and Raikou all have something in common.
    • All of them are part of a legendary trio.
    • All of them are electric Pokémon.
    • All of them are legendary.
  • Thundurus's name is a misspelling of the word "thunderous". The choosing of this name is possibly due to the end of its name having to match Landorus and Tornadus' and when it uses lightning, thunder accompanies it due to hot air particles brushing against cold.
  • Despite Thundurus being the Bolt Strike Pokémon, he cannot learn the move Bolt Strike.
  • Thundurus is the only one of the Djinn trio to not have his Therian forme resemble a creature in reality (Landorus looks like a cat, Tornadus looks like a bird).
  • While Thundurus has a gender, it still cannot breed because it is a legendary Pokémon.

Origin

Thundurus's appearance resembles a Djinn. Its Therian form resembles a dragon.
