Landorus, a Legendary Force of Nature, is now part of Pokémon Go’s five-star raid rotation. Our Pokémon Go Landorus Therian raid guide covers the best movesets, counters, and biggest weaknesses.
Landorus has two forms, the human-like Incarnate Forme and the dog or cat-like Therian Forme.
Landorus best counters and weaknesses
Landorus is ground- and flying-type, meaning that if you want to take it down, bring water- and ice-types. Ice-types are your best bet, as their moves will do quadrupled damage against it. Landorus Therian best counters and weaknesses include:
- Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche
- Weavile with Ice Shard and Avalanche
- Kyogre with Waterfall and Blizzard
- Galarian Darmanitan with Ice Fang and Avalanche
Any of the water-type starter Pokémon with the Community Day move Hydro Cannon will also help put a dent in Landorus’ health, but it won’t be as effective as using ice-type moves. If you have Mega Abomasnow Energy, then using a Mega Abomasnow with Powder Snow and ice-type Weather Ball is a great choice.
Landorus best moveset
Incarnate Forme Landorus is one of the best ground-type attackers in the game, getting outclassed by its other Therian Forme. Definitely stock up if you want a strong attacker, and pair it with Mud Shot and Earth Power.
For its Therian Forme, set it up with Mud Shot and Earthquake to do some serious damage.
Can Landorus be Shiny?
Lucky players may encounter a Shiny Landorus. If you do see a Shiny, you’ll catch it on the first ball you hit it with, so use a Pinap Berry to score some extra candy.
