Landorus's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Landorus resides in the Uber tier of competitive battling, getting banned from the Overused tier for the third straight generation due to its offensive prowess being too much for the tier. While not quite the force it was in OU, Landorus is still a capable threat on its own in Ubers. It has decent offensive power, well-rounded coverage, and Sheer Force boosted attacks that prevent it from taking Life Orb recoil when using those attacks. These attacks give it the ability to break through troublesome Pokémon like Ho-oh and Toxapex. Thanks to its base 101 Speed, Landorus can outspeed the likes of Yveltal and Primal Groudon. Since Landorus can dish out a strong amount of damage to various Arceus formes that use Defog, it serves as a nice Stealth Rock user as well. However, despite all these positive traits, Landorus struggles greatly in Ubers. While it may have a decent matchup against bulkier or balanced teams, Landorus has a terrible matchup against hyper offensive teams that can easily revenge kill it. Landorus has problems breaking through defensive Pokémon like Giratina-O and Lugia, which can shrug off its attacks thanks to their great bulk. Even though it has an immunity to Ground, Landorus cannot reliably switch in and check some of the most prominent Ground-type threats in Primal Groudon and Arceus-Ground. This makes it a problematic choice as a wallbreaker for most teams, as it is outdone in wallbreaking power or defensive utility by a number of threats.
Landorus-Therian is in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling, where it is the clear-cut best Pokémon in the metagame. Thanks to a number of terrific traits, such as Intimidate, a Ground immunity, base 145 Attack, and wide coverage options, Landorus-T serves a number of roles that are effective in their own right. It finds itself on teams effortlessly because of how much it can provide for teams. Landorus-T can serve as a phenomenal defensive pivot that checks the likes of Zygarde and Mega Lopunny, and its capabilities give it plenty of opportunities to set up Stealth Rock or gain momentum with U-turn. It has access to various boosting moves in Swords Dance and Rock Polish, and with Z-Moves, Landorus can become a wallbreaker that can easily break an opponent's defensive core without issue provided it uses the right move. Outside of the common defensive set, Landorus-T can run a Choice Scarf set that checks boosting sweepers like Mega Pinsir. A Flynium Z set is great thanks to having a 1-time STAB nuke in Supersonic Strike that breaks through Grass-types and potentially annoying bulky Pokémon. With Gravity or Smack Down, Landorus is a threat to Defog users like Skarmory, Zapdos, and Mantine that would otherwise check it and remove the Stealth Rock it sets up. This is well suited with an Earth Plate set that has a powerful Earthquake, but it can also be used with the Flynium Z set with great effectiveness. Another great set is a Rocknium Z set with Swords Dance and Stone Edge to break through the likes of Celesteela and Skarmory while still providing utility with Stealth Rock. Landorus-T can serve as a suicide lead with Stealth Rock that can boost with Swords Dance to hit potential entry hazard removers hard with Earthquake or Explosion. Lastly, Landorus-T can use a Double Dance set with Rock Polish and Swords Dance, giving it multiple options to set up with while utilizing the EdgeQuake combination and Rocknium Z to break through opposing foes. Even though Landorus-T is a versatile and incredibly useful Pokémon, it still maintains some flaws. With weaknesses to Ice and Water, Landorus-T is susceptible to being defeated by the likes of Greninja and Keldeo. Landorus-T has no form of reliable recovery which prevents it from constantly switching into opponents without consequence. Its average Speed stat puts it behind a number of imposing threats like Tapu Lele and Kyurem-B. Despite these flaws, they are minor in comparison to the incredible utility and power that makes Landorus-T a common pick for an OU team.
While nowhere close to the amazing force it is in OU, Landorus-T is still a highly viable choice in the Uber tier of competitive battling. Thanks to its great Ground/Flying typing and Intimidate, it serve as a soft check to many Uber threats like Primal Groudon, Ho-oh, Mega Lucario, Tyranitar, Excadrill, Marshadow lacking Hidden Power Ice, and certain Swords Dance Arceus formes. With a high base 145 Attack stat, it can dish out some decent damage with a STAB Earthquake. While Landorus-T is a good defensive pivot that can provide Stealth Rock, it can also take on an offensive role in Ubers. Thanks to having a one-time nuke with Flynium Z or Dragonium Z, Landorus-T can use Supersonic Strike or Devastating Drake to take out the likes of Mega Salamence, Zygarde-C, both Giratina formes, and support Arceus formes. However, Landorus-T faces immense competition in the form of Primal Groudon as a Stealth Rock setter, due to the latter's ability to check more threats, higher bulk, and stronger offensive power. The trends of Primal Groudon using special Fire attacks or Hidden Power Ice hurt Landorus-T as well, considering it cannot switch into it without having to take a significant amount of damage. Since Landorus-T's raw power cannot break through support Arceus formes, it is reliant on its Z-Move to take out those Pokémon. Landorus-T's special bulk is poor and doesn't allow for it to switch into many special attackers as a result.
Landorus cannot breed.
