Thundurus is a blue, muscular humanoid Pokémon that resembles a genie in Incarnate Forme. There is no female equivalent to this species. It has a single long, pointy purple horn on its head. Thundurus has white hair that is zigzagged and protruding, a spiky white mustache, and two pointed blue ears on each side of its skull. It has golden eyes with beady white irises and no discernible pupils. Thundurus’s body is covered in unevenly shaped purple patches on the front. Its wide chest is made up of two linked diamond-shaped pectorals, its shoulders and elbows are ornamented with magatama designs, and a teardrop sits on top of its navel, all in purple. It has two speckled strong arms, each with five fingers. It has a trailing cloud for a lower body and a thick, long, curling, purple, cable-like tail. Thundurus possesses six ball-like structures that its tail passes through at regular intervals, similar to knots in a string. They are dark gray in hue, with a long, pointed spike on one side.

Thundurus is a big, blue, sleek, bipedal snake or dragon-like Pokémon in Therian Forme. The horn on its head has thickened and expanded, and its ears have grown more pointed and pinched back. Thundurus’ hair stays the same, but the mustache has grown to resemble a fanged mouth, with two curved wisps extending back and over its ears. Its eyes are still yellow, but with enlarged irises and no apparent pupils. Its chest remains large and unaltered, and its navel is set with a blue stone. Thundurus’ arms have lost a lot of muscle mass and are now thinner. It features two paw-like hands, each with three claw-tipped fingers and a trailing cloud-like fluff. The purple bottom half of Thundurus is significantly smaller than its upper body and comprised of two hind legs and its tail. It has long, extended feet with three downward bent toes and claws. The tail of Thundurus is similarly virtually unaltered, albeit it is thicker at the base and tapers down, becoming thinner near the tip.

Thundurus’ tail can fire thunderbolts. It utilizes lightning bolts to destroy enemies into oblivion. People and farmers dread and fear it for its destructive rampages, which include violent thunderstorms. When it flies about firing lightning, it tends to start forest fires. Thundurus’ lightning bolts may nourish the soil wherever they strike. Thundurus’ visits are characterized by the burned remnants of regions it devastated. Thundurus has also been involved in violent collisions with Tornadus from the beginning of time. Thundurus may move so quickly that it can appear out of nowhere. To defend itself from danger, Thundurus may unleash micro thunderstorms and surround itself with a cloud barrier.

Thundurus is the only Pokémon known to be able to learn the move Wildbolt Storm.
