Pokémon GO started 2022 strong with a celebration of different generations culminating in the Kanto event, which brought some of the most popular Pokémon to raids during this time. Since then, the number of different raids has decreased a bit, with a focus on the Season of Legends and in turn the Forces of Nature trio. We started with the three Incarnate Forms that were already in the game and now the Therian Forms have been slowly released. After the release of Therian Forme Thundurus and Tornadus for raids, no it's time for the final Therian Form with Landorus.



The best Therian Forme Landorus counters in April 2022

Our full Therian Forme Landorus is further down below, where we answer all the important questions about his raids and how to beat Therian Forme Landorus. Before that, you need to have a solid counter team, so here is a list of the best. There are very few Ground/Flying types in the series, with only Gligar and Gliscor in addition to the two Landorus forms. Due to being a Flying-type, Therian Forme Landorus shares a major weakness of Thundurus and Tornadus, which are ice moves. However, ground typing removes rock moves that were very effective against the other two forces of nature. But be sure to read below the table to find out the rare exceptions and special cases that appear, because so much was added to Pokémon GO before April 2022.

While we've seen the Incarnate Form of Landorus before in raids, this is the first time we've seen the Therian Form. Even so, it doesn't change the strategy too much when it comes to using Shadow or Mega Pokemon. Using a Shadow version of any of the Pokemon above will always be recommended over the regular version. The best Mega you can use here is Mega Abomasnow, which can be incredibly useful with a set of Powder Snow and Weather Ball moves. Shadow Mewtwo with Ice Beam as a charged move can also be very useful. Now let's move on to the complete Therian Forme Landorus raid guide below.

Here are some of the frequently asked questions and important tips about Therian Forme Landorus Raids in Pokémon GO for April 2022.

When do Therian Forme Landorus raids start and end in April 2022?

Therian Forme Landorus will begin appearing in five-star raids in Pokémon GO on Tuesday, April 13 at 10 a.m. local time. You'll have the opportunity to catch this Pokémon in Raids for five days, as it leaves on Tuesday, April 27 at 10 a.m. local time. This continues the two-week relay pattern for Therian Formes, so you should have plenty of time to catch them. There will also be a few raid hours during this time, so keep an eye out for those.

How many players are needed

Therian Forme Landorus follows the trend of other Forces of Nature raids in how they are quite easy due to their weakness to ice attacks. If you have two high level players, best friends and with the best counters, it is possible to beat Therian Forme Landorus, but you will need the best possible run to succeed. For this reason, we recommend having at least three to four people with good counters to take down this Pokémon.

What time stimulates Therian Forme Landorus and counters

Incarnate Forme Landorus is boosted by sunny and windy weather increasing his CP and making him harder to take down. Incarnate Forme Landorus has a mix of ground and rock moves in particular, so those will be strongest on sunny or partly cloudy days, so you might be better off doing it outside of those if you have time. wrong. Fighting in snowy conditions will give ice attacks a boost, but this may be unlikely in many regions due to the change in season.



What CP for 100% IV for Landorus Form Thundurus

Without any time increase, Therian Forme Landorus will have 2151 CP to 2241 CP. The higher CP means he's 100% perfect IV-wise, so you definitely want to grab him if you're lucky enough to find one. On sunny and windy days, this range drops from 2688 CP to 2801 CP instead, putting it at level 25 when captured.

Can Therian Forme Thundurus be shiny, how to get shiny Therian Forme Thundurus

No, there is no shiny version of Therian Forme Landorus available in Pokémon GO for this first appearance. This follows the trend of Thundurus and Tornadus not having shiny versions of their Therian Forms. With the way Niantic handles Shiny, there's a good chance we'll see the Shiny Therian Forme Landorus make an appearance alongside the other three the next time they're in Pokémon GO.
