Appearances

Anime

The Kami Trio

Landorus and his brothers appeared in Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1 and Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 2, and again (in his Therian Forme) in Unova's Survival Crisis!

Trivia

  • Landorus is the only legendary Ground/Flying Pokémon.
  • It's possible that this Pokémon creates sandstorms, as Tornadus creates whirlwinds and tornadoes, and Thundurus creates thunderstorms.
  • Landorus can resemble Rayquaza in many ways, seeing how they appear to be the masters of their trio, have higher base stats, and how they both stopped their counterparts from harming their home region.
  • Although Landorus is a Flying type, it doesn't learn any moves of this type through leveling up.
  • Even though Landorus is said to have punished the other members of its trio, it does not have a type advantage over them.
    • However, this can be countered by the fact that Landorus can learn Rock-type attack moves by leveling up.
  • Landorus is the only member of the Kami trio to not debut in a movie.
  • Landorus and the rest of the Kami trio have new forms in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, called "Therian Forms", while their current forms are called their "Incarnate Forms". Their Therian Forms are exclusive to players with a 3DS and the AR searcher app, as seen in a CoroCoro leak. It is considered to be the final boss because when defeated, the credits roll.
  • While Landorus has a gender, it still cannot breed because it is still a legendary Pokémon.

Origin

Landorus resembles a Djinn. His Therian form resembles a wildcat. Landorus is likely based on Inari, the Shinto god/goddess (Inari has been portrayed as both a man and a woman) of fertility, agriculture, wealth, commerce, industry, and foxes.

Etymology

Landorus and Randorosu likely come from "land" and Aeolus, a Greek wind god.
