Despite the Ground/Flying-type looking vastly different, the best Landorus counters in Pokemon Go stay the same. You can still counter it with exactly the same opponents, and this guide has everything you need to know. So read on for all Pokemon Go Landorus counters and details you could want, along with possible Landorus movesets and how to catch a shiny Landorus.

Pokemon Go Landorus counters
Boosted Weather: Windy/Sunny
100% IVs (Incarnate): 2050 (L20) / 2563 (L25)
100% IVs (Therian): 2241 (L20) / 2688 (L25)
So Landorus only has two main types that counter it, which can sometimes mean you're limited in strong Pokemon to choose from, but Water and Ice-types go together like bread and butter. There are plenty of Pokemon to choose from that can learn both Water and Ice-type moves, and as a result, Landorus isn't too difficult to take down. You'll still want a few pals in tow to help defeat it, but if you've all got some of these counters on the go, then you'll be golden.

Pokemon Go Landorus moveset

|Rock Throw||Focus Blast|
|Row 2 - Cell 0||Rock Slide|
|Row 3 - Cell 0||Earth Power|
Despite being a dual Flying-type Pokemon, Landorus doesn't actually know any Flying-type moves. It has two Rock and two Ground-types moves in its arsenal, plus a Fighting and a Dragon-type move for good measure. Avoid using any Fire, Electric, or Poison types against it and you should be golden. The best Landorus moveset when you catch one will be Mud Shot and Rock Slide, although if you're against a Landorus with both Rock-type moves, you'll want to enlist the help of a few more allies because Ice-type Pokemon are weak to both moves.
How to catch a shiny Landorus
Unfortunately, shiny Landorus isn't much different from the standard form. That won't stop most players from wanting to try and catch one though so if you fall in that category, you're in luck. Shiny Landorus – like all legendary Pokemon with a shiny version in Pokemon Go – has a 5% chance of appearing when you complete a raid. If you do find one, it has a 100% catch rate, so use a Pinap Berry and make sure you don't miss!
