    Well, I have finally decided to relent and catch Tornadus. Because of this, I can have a choice of nature and such. I am not experienced with Gen V legendaries yet, so I would like an idea for a good competitive moveset. I am thinking that a sweeper would be nice.

    There's not enough information to go by here. Tornadus can do both physical and special sweeping, possibly mixed if you want, and you'll need to decide on a direction to pick first.

    Hm, I didn't know that. Since I need more experience with the physical side of the elemental types, I shall go with a physical sweeper.

    Physical Tornadus generally looks something like this:

    Tornadus @ Flying Gem
    Jolly
    Prankster

    - Acrobatics
    - Brick Break
    - U-Turn
    - Taunt/Crunch/Bulk Up/Substitute (Filler)

    Physical Tornadus is viable purely because of Acrobatics - the special set would heavily outstrip it otherwise. Flying Gem boosts Acrobatics by 50% damage; after that, it'll disappear and then Acrobatics will have a permanent 165 power (with STAB) which is deadly on something this quick and this powerful. Brick Break knocks down Rock and Steel-types for you, U-Turn works well with Tornadus's fantastic speed and the last slot as stated is filler. Taunt is by far my favourite choice of move here since it works brilliantly with Prankster, but the choice is yours.

    KoL, thank you for the suggestions. How would Substitute work with this set?

    Quite well given that Tornadus gets speed priority on it. It's worth consideration at the very least.
