Landorus is expected to be the most powerful member of the Forces of Nature currently, and the one of the overall strongest Ground Type attackers on its release. It's also likely to become a great threat in PvP. That said, it will eventually be outclassed by its Therian forme as a raider, so consider holding onto your candy!
