Overview

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.

Approach

Team composition

  • Mega Abomasnow is the VIP for this raid due to its high damage and Ice Type team boost
  • Shadow Mamoswine is just stupidly strong, and should be the front-runner for any team if you're lucky enough to have it
  • Front-load your glass cannons to maximize their average DPS
  • Moveset can be very important here, pay attention to your recommended Pokemon and try to predict accordingly

Battling strategy

  • Re-entering will almost surely be required 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.
