Pokemon like Mega Latias and Mega Alakazam are able to outspeed and safely pivot into most of Thundurus-T's coverage options.

Overview. Thundurus-T is a powerful Electric-type wallbreaker that is able to power through typical Electric-type checks such as Tangrowth, Ferrothorn, Mega. Thundurus-T is a unique Pokemon in the OU metagame, blessed with access for an offensive sweeper, resisting two forms of priority in Brave Bird and Bullet.
Although not at the level of its Incarnate form, mainly due to the drop in Speed, Thundurus-T is not to be underestimated. Its base Special Attack is nothing to.
By virtue of its decent movepool, Thundurus-T is very difficult to switch into safely as it has means of breaking past conventional checks like Tapu Bulu and Tyranitar with Hidden Power Flying and Focus Blast respectively.
Mega Scizor invites in a lot of Water- Steel- and Electric-types such as Magnezone, Toxapex, and Celesteela which provide Thundurus-T with ample opportunities to set up or fire off a strong attack. Against these offensive teams, it is best to determine whether Thundurus-T has an opportunity to set up, especially against faster offensive threats like Garchomp, Mega Latias, and Mega Alakazam being able to switch in and potentially revenge kill Thundurus-T.

There definitely needs to be some mention on what actually makes it a niche mon as well, because from what little i've read, there's nothing really distinguishing this between other breakers. Once the Z move has been expended Thundurus-T becomes extremely reliant on multiple Nasty Plot boosts to break past them, but Magearna can retaliate with a Fleur Cannon or Ice Beam, while Gastrodon and Chansey can proceed to cripple it with Toxic.
