Therian Forme Landorus best moveset in Pokemon Go

One of the best movesets Therian Forme Landorus can learn in Pokemon Go is Mud Shot as a Fast Move and Superpower as a Charged Move.

There are only two potential Fast Move options here, but with Mud Shot benefitting from STAB and having superior energy generation, there’s really no reason to opt for Extrasensory – always go with Mud Shot.

Even though it has a self-debuff, Superpower is Therian Forme Landorus’ best Charged Move, with great speed and damage. If you can afford a secondary attack, choose Stone Edge for extra coverage options.

Is Therian Forme Landorus any good in Pokemon Go?

Therian Forme Landorus can’t be found with a low enough CP to qualify for the Great League and it doesn’t fare very well in the Ultra League, but it can be a pretty great competitor in the Master League.

This is largely thanks to its high max CP, solid coverage options, and ridiculously high 289 Attack stat, which give it the potential for key wins against the likes of Ho-Oh, Dialga, Yveltal, and Garchomp.

Therian Forme Landorus does suffer from relatively low Defense and Stamina, though, and Superpower’s self-debuff isn’t great in the long run, so don’t expect it to last very long in battle.

Even if you don’t use it in the Go Battle League, Therian Forme Landorus is easily one of the best Ground-type attackers for Raid Battles, so it’s worth having one in your collection for that reason alone.
