Trainers, attention! Landorus is coming to Pokémon GO from Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. to Tuesday, April 21, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7). Landorus will be appearing in five-star raids, but it will also be available as a GO Battle League rare reward encounter, starting at rank 4.

We urge players to practice social distancing in countries affected by Coronavirus and to stick with GO Battle League rewards. Reaching Rank 4 takes less than an hour with a solid team and farming rare encounters is easier than farming raids.

Regardless, we have published a Landorus Raid Counters Guide that details best Pokémon to use against Landorus. As expected, Water and Ice types dominate the list of best counters. After all, Landorus is double weak to Ice moves and weak to Water moves.

Stay safe Trainers!
