How to catch Landorus in Pokemon GO is doable during the next challenge raids on April 28. It's great news if you still need to catch a Landorus in Pokemon GO because they are going to be available for longer than initially announced. Hopefully the extra week will be enough for trainers to beat it in a raid and catch the legendary for themselves.

Landorus is not an easy catch if you manage to find one at a Raid in your area. It's a legendary Pokemon so don't be surprised if you fail on your first attempt. Follow the tips below and your next attempt should be more successful.

How to Catch Landorus

1. Be Prepared


To catch the "Guardian of the Fields" you are going to need to be prepared. You can only catch Landorus with Premier balls you earn while beating it. Bringing along friends will help you earn more Premier balls, but be sure to aim carefully. Using Golden Razz Berries before each throw will also help your chances. Be sure to stock up on healing items like Max Potions and Max Revives before the battle.

2. Hit Where It Hurts

Landorus is a Ground and Flying type so it is especially weak to Ice attacks. If you run out of Ice Pokemon or Ice attacks then Water is the second best. Attacking in the rain will give Water attacks an extra boost, but Ice is still preferred. Aim for Excellent or Great throws for the best chance at catching it.
