Landorus (ランドロス) is the 151st Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. He is a Ground/Flying type, and is known as the Abundance Pokémon.

Landorus uses the Sand Force Ability in its Incarnate Forme. This Ability increases the power of its Ground, Rock and Steel-Type moves by 33% during a Sandstorm. In its Therian Forme Landorus uses the Intimidate Ability. This Ability reduces the Attack of its opponents by one stage when it enters battle.

Landorus from the Dream World use the Sheer Force Ability. Using this Ability, moves that have a secondary effect receive a 33% Increase in their power, but those secondary effects are lost. Additionally, if it is holding a Life Orb it won't lose any HP if its using Sheer Force.

Landorus doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Landorus is in the Undiscovered Egg Group; like most Legendary Pokémon Landorus cannot breed. It takes Landorus 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Physiology

[edit] Incarnate Forme

Landorus takes on the appearance of a red/brown genie that is floating on a cloud in its Incarnate Forme.

[edit] Therian Forme

Landorus's Therian Forme is completely different than that of Thundurus and Tornadus, as Therian Forme Landorus takes on the appearance of a four-legged beast. Its long tail is about as long as its body, and there are cloud-like patterns near its paws.

[edit] Gender Differences

Landorus is always male.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Landorus can be found at the Abundant Shrine, after catching Thundurus and Tornadus in Generation V games, Black and White. Landorus doesn't appear in Black 2 and White 2, but can be obtained in the Spin-Off Game Pokémon Dream Radar after completing the Miracle Stage. This Landorus will be in its Therian Forme after being captured, and once transferred to Black 2 or White 2, can be used to unlock the Reflecting Mirror by taking it to Abundant Shrine.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Landorus appears at the Arcane Area's Lakeshore in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond after completing the game and befriending both Tornadus and Thundurus. This part of the Arcane area can be accessed from the Arbor Area. Interact with the shrine, then battle Landorus to befriend it. Afterwards you'll be able to call it into battle.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Three Landorus Cards are listed in the Black/White Promo set. Landorus is listed as a Rare Card in the Noble Victories set.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Landorus finds itself in the Over-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It has the Statistical build of a sweeper, but a shallow movepool on the physical side of things limits how well it can capitalize on its high Attack Statistic. Even though it doesn't have the best movepool, it is capable of getting past immense physical walls like Gliscor with Hidden Power, or Skarmory with the utilization of Gravity or Smack Down, followed by an Earthquake. The fact that Landorus also has the ability Sand Force makes him an absolute powerhouse in the sand, which can be provided using a Tyranitar or a Hippowdon. Its Special Attack is pretty high in its own right, and it can abuse Sheer Force to make himself a formidable special sweeper. Landorus-Therian is much slower than Landorus, but it can utilize its higher attack so that he is not overly reliant on Sand Stream, and Intimidate gives him more bulk than Incarnate Landorus, which makes a bulky attacking set very viable on him.
