Everything we know about Landorus

Landorus acts as the trio master for the Forces of Nature, which also includes Tornadus and Thundurus.

Tornadus and Thundurus are the other members of the Forces of Nature trio.

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.
