Landorus Therian Moveset Analysis
Mud Shot will charge up any of Lando-T’s charged moves super fast.
Earth Power and Rock Slide are both 2-bar charged moves and deal a good amount of damage. While the former has STAB, Rock Slide does super-effective damage to Ice types (your main counter to Lando-T).
Therefore, you really have to increase the number of your trainers if Lando-T has Rock Throw and Rock Slide.
Outrage hits hard, despite lacking STAB. It is recommended to dodge this powerful Dragon type move.
Focus Blast can OHKO any of your Ice types but is quite easy to dodge.
Landorus Therian is the most relevant raid boss since Reshiram and Zekrom and is going to be a must-have Pokémon to have, for both PvP and PvE. With a huge ATK stat and excellent moves, you shouldn’t miss out on the leader of the Genie Trio!
