Landorus Therian Moveset Analysis

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Mud Shot Ground
  • Extrasensory Rock
  • Earthquake Ground
  • Stone Edge Rock
  • Bulldoze Ground

Mud Shot will charge up any of Lando-T’s charged moves super fast.

Extrasensory is a horrible move. Don’t worry about this one.

Earthquake is Lando-T’s strongest move and is devastating, complemented by its high ATK stat.

Bulldoze is not as powerful as Earthquake but can still do a number.

Stone Edge hits hard and will OHKO your Ice types.

Superpower can do severe damage to any of your Ice types and is Landorus-T’s cheapest chared move. If you are facing one with Mud Shot and Superpower, prepare yourself for a spam of Superpower!

Parting words

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!

Let’s shake the meta with this groundbreaking beast!
