Everything we know about Landorus
As the trio master, its Landorus' duty to ensure that Tornadus and Thundurus don't wreak havoc on the Unova region. This led the humans of this land to construct a shrine for Landorus in thanks for its protection.
Like Tornadus and Thundurus, Landorus represents a different physical domain of the world. Landorus, unsurprisingly, represents the land we walk upon, which is why it's the one who protects it from the other members of the trio.
Landorus also takes inspiration from the kami, a holy being from Shinto mythology, Inari Ōkami, who was the kami of foxes, agriculture, rice and fertility just to name a few.
The Therian Forme for Landorus was released alongside Pokémon Dream Radar, which was an app for the Nintendo 3DS.
