Catching Forces of Nature
Venturing deep into the cave, a shrine can be seen with sunlight shining onto, with Tornadus and Thundurus in their Incarnate Forms looking at it. Upon reaching the shrine, Tornadus and Thundurus are startled by the player, and, instead of battling, they immediately fly through the hole on top and flee away. From this point onward, they can be rarely found as Roaming Pokémon on any location with Wild Pokémon encounters.
After the player catches both of them, he or she can return to the shrine with both Tornadus and Thundurus in party. The Trio Master Landorus will then be seen waiting for the player. Rather than fleeing, it will instantly battle the player after interacting with it, serving as the only Pokémon battle in this place and making a reference to how Landorus is found at Abundant Shrine, Unova in Pokémon Black and White. The player only has 1 chance to catch it, so save beforehand and turn off Autosave.
Warning: Players can only battle the following Pokémon once! Save beforehand and turn off Autosave.
