Landorus is back in Raids.

Landorus, in the Incarnate Forme, is in Pokémon GO Raids from June 10 - June 19.

This version of Landorus isn’t the best Pokémon in the Ground-type category. However, the Therian Forme of Landorus is one of the best best Ground-types in both Raids and PvP.

That means that this is a great chance to get extra Landorus Candy in Pokémon GO. Both types use a single Landorus Candy, so whenever the other Forme returns you’ll have everything you need.

Here is everything you need to take on Landorus in Pokémon GO.

Best Landorus counters in Pokémon GO:

Landorus has a weakness to Water-type attacks and a double weakness to Ice-type attacks. It has a double resistance to Ground-types, and single resistances to Bug, Electric, Fighting and Poison-types.

That makes Ice-type Pokémon crucial to take down Landorus in Pokémon GO.

Here are the best Landorus counters:

Galarian Darmanitan
Ice Fang & Avalanche
Ice Fang & Avalanche
Shadow Mewtwo
Psycho Cut & Ice Beam
Primal Kyogre
Waterfall & Blizzard
Powder Snow & Avalanche
Mega Glalie
Frost Breath & Avalanche
Mega Abomasnow
Powder Snow & Weather Ball
Ice Shard & Avalanche
Mega Gardevoir
Magical Leaf & Triple Axel
Frost Breath & Avalanche
Mega Swampert
Water Gun & Hydro Cannon
Dragon Breath & Glaciate

As expected, there are almost all Ice-type Pokémon on this list of Landorus counters.

Some of these are powerful Mega Pokémon that aren’t Ice-types but can instead learn Ice-type moves. Be aware that for a Pokémon like Mega Kyogre, you won’t want to get rid of a legacy move like Origin Pulse. These moves will require an Elite TM to put back. So, be cautious when setting up your team for this Landorus Raid.

However, lots of these good Landorus counters should be available to most Pokémon GO trainers thanks to their wide availability.
