April 12, 2021

It’s finally time for players to encounter the last of the Forces of Nature Trio’s Therian Formes.

Following both Therian Forme Thundurus and Tornadus, Therian Forme Landorus is now appearing in Pokemon GO raids around the world.

No doubt players will be scampering to capture this Pokemon on its first appearance within the game – so we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know to take down Therian Forme Landorus including its weakness and best counters.

Pokemon GO: Therian Forme Landorus Weakness

The final new Pokemon in the first half of the Season of Legends has just arrived, Therian Forme Landorus.

Landorus has an unusual Ground/Flying-typing. This type combination leaves the Pokemon with a major flaw – a 4x weakness to Ice-type moves.

It also has a 2x weakness to Water-type moves, but it’s Ice you want to exploit here.

As stated, you want to be exploiting Landorus’ Ice weakness here.

One major option is Mega Abomasnow. Although it suffers to Landorus’ flying moves, it will provide a boost to all over Ice-type Pokemon.

Following Mega Abomasnow, you should consider Galarian Darmanitan and Mamoswine as two great options. 

Weavile, Glaceon and Jynx are another three really strong counters to take down Landorus.

Mega Abomasnow – Powder Snow/Weather Ball
Galarian Darmanitan – Ice Fang/Avalanche
Mamoswine – Powder Snow/Avalanche
Weavile – Ice Shard/Avalanche
Glaceon – Frost Breath/Avalanche
Jynx – Frost Breath/Avalanche

We recommend bringing at least 3-4 trainers with a selection of the Pokemon above to help complete the raid.
