Landorus - Incarnate Forme can really pack a punch, and has some nasty coverage moves that can make the duo a hard-fought battle. It's genuinely hard to say which charged move is the worst to fight, as its coverage is just phenomenal. Regardless of moveset, Ice Types should definitely be your choice for this raid, as their massive DPS cannot be ignored.


Team composition

  • Shadow Mamoswine is just stupidly strong, and should be the front-runner for any team if you're lucky enough to have it
  • Mega Glalie and Mega Abomasnow are the Mega Evolutions of choice, though Primal Kyogre is also pretty note-worthy for its huge longevity.
  • Front-load your glass cannons to maximize their average DPS
  • When going for the duo, DPS shouldn't be a huge problem. Try to build with TDO in mind.

Battling strategy

  • Re-entering will be pretty likely for the duo, the trio can avoid it

  • Dodging is definitely recommended if you're packing a high DPS team

  • If running a duo, one player should back out, heal up, and return after their 3rd Pokemon faints. This will virtually ensure that Landorus can't regenerate health due to a full wipe

Note: "Good" movesets are not necessarily viable at the level indicated.

Best Raid Boss Counters

Mega Evolution Counters

Mega Glalie Mega Glalie
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

The DPS Mega of choice, Mega Glalie is always a great choice for its ability to abuse Landorus' double-weakness to Ice. It's hard to go wrong with this overgrown ball of ice.

Mega Abomasnow Mega Abomasnow
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

While a bit under Mega Glalie in general, Mega Abomasnow has superior TDO in most cases thanks to its Grass sub-typing.

Primal_Kyogre Primal Kyogre
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

Despite lacking an Ice Type Fast Move and STAB on Blizzard, Primal Kyogre actually rivals Mega Abomasnow in terms of DPS, but with a lot more TDO. Its only down-side in this regard is the fact that it doesn't buff Ice Types while on the field.

Supreme Counters

ShadowSwine Shadow Mamoswine
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

If you have a team of Shadow Mamoswine ready to go, you've basically won this raid. Its DPS is actually solo-worthy, to the point where a solo would be viable in Snowy weather. Technically it's solo-worthy in any weather around lv.40, but its TDO isn't the absolute best so dodging may drag its DPS back down to duo levels.

Galarian Darmanitan Galarian Darmanitan

a Vanilla-Ice Type at its finest; a great option that puts in good work, though it is a bit frail

Mamoswine Mamoswine
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

The old classic, Shadow Mamoswine may not be solo-viable like its Shadow, but it's still outstanding in its own right.

ShadowWeavile Shadow Weavile
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

While really frail overall, Shadow Weavile's sheer DPS output is surpassed only by Shadow Mamoswine, so it's worth considering.

Shadow Mewtwo Shadow Mewtwo
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

Yet another raid guide with Shadow Mewtwo! Among the relatively low-powered Pokemon in the Ice Type, Shaodw Mewtwo's Ice Beam is actually a very strong option, so it's definitely worth using here.

Great Counters

Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

One of the most accessible "good" Ice Types is definitely a worthwhile Pokemon for this raid.

ShadowAbomasnow Shadow Abomasnow
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

A strong Ice Type with a resistance to Ground Type attacks, but it's still pretty frail/

walrein Shadow Walrein
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

While easy to overlook, Shadow Walrein is actually another very good Ice Type attacker that's worth bringing to this raid.

Shadow Articuno Shadow Articuno
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

The mascot of Team Mystic in its corrupted form, Shadow Articuno is a solid pick overall... just so long as it's not facing down Rock Slide.

Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

While not on a par with its Shadow forme, Mewtwo can still drop a lot of damage on Landorus thanks to Ice Beam

Shadow_Regice Shadow Regice
Fast MoveCharge MoveRating

Yup, I'm as surprised as you are; with the Shadow boost, Regice is actually kinda decent here. Not GREAT, but decent.

It's going to need Hidden Power Ice in order to operate well, but it's surprisingly strong and fun to utilize. Hidden Power Water can also work in a pinch.

One of the older "good" Ice Types, Weavile still works well when needed!
