Landorus, the last Force of Nature to be added to Pokémon Go, is joining tier-five raids starting March 31 until April 21.
It has two forms, the human-like Incarnate Forme and the dog or cat-like Therian Forme. The Therian Forme hasn’t been added to the game yet, but once it does, this guide will still work, as it still keeps the same typing.
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. Consider using any of the following:
- Mamoswine with Powder Snow and Avalanche
- Weavile with Ice Shard and Avalanche
- Kyogre with Waterfall and Blizzard
- Kingler with Bubble and Crabhammer
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.
Incarnate Forme Landorus is the best ground-type attacker in the game, only getting outclassed by its other Therian Forme. Definitely stock up if you want a strong attacker and pair it with Rock Throw and Earth Power. You can even just stock up on Incarnate Forme Landorus for candy and wait for Therian Forme to release, since they will very likely use the same candy.
