Thundurus: 79 / 115 / 70 / 125 / 80 / 111
Thundurus-T: 79 / 105 / 70 / 145 / 80 / 101

Both Thundurus and Thundurus-T have somewhat different roles. Due to Thundurus-T's base 145 Special Attack, it is usually used a Special Sweeper. Thundurus, however, shuts down hazard setters and cripples Pokemon with Prankster. For example:

Thundurus-T (M) @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Focus Blast
- Volt Switch

Thundurus-T (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Agility
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Focus Blast

Thundurus-T (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Nasty Plot
- Agility

Thundurus (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Prankter
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Thunder Wave
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Taunt

Thundurus (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Nasty Plot
- Focus Blast

Although Thundurus can run offensive, Prankster makes it a better crippler. Due to the Therian form's higher Special Attack, sweeping is easier.

Well,in Incarnate form a thundurus has very hight attack(361 max.) and very hight sp.attack(383 max.).In Therian form it loses some of it's attack(339 max.) and the sp.attack stat is even bigger than before (427 max.).In both form the defences are the same.Personally I would prefer Therian form.I hope you will choose wisely.
