Landorus (Japanese: ランドロス Landlos) is a dual-type Ground/Flying legendary Pokémon.

While he is not known to evolve into or from any Pokémon, he has an alternate form called Reijuu Forme, while his original Forme is called Keshin Forme.

Along with Tornadus and Thundurus, Landorus is a member of the Kami trio, serving as its trio master.

Biology

Physiology

In Keshin Forme, Landorus is an orange, muscular humanoid Pokémon, which resembles a genie. On his forehead are three, sharp, pink horns arranged in a slight, upwards arch. Landorus has white, round and flat styled hair, a jagged white mustache and two pointed orange ears on either side of his head. His eyes are yellow with beady white irises and no visible pupils. The front of Landorus' body is covered in dark pink spots; most of them shaped like diamonds, pebbles and raindrops. His broad chest consists of two joined, dark pink diamond shaped pecks and his shoulders, elbows and navel are adorned with raindrop like designs. He has two spotted muscular arms, with five fingers on each hand. His lower body consists of a trailing cloud, with a long, curling, brown, branch or root-like tail. Landorus' tail has various flat protrusions running its span, each spotted in dark pink on their edge surface.

In Reijuu Forme, Landorus is a orange, lean, feline-like quadruped Pokémon. The horns on his head are now thinner and arranged closer together in a downwards arch. While his hair remains the same; the mustache now takes on a more fang-like appearance, curving around his head to behind his slightly smaller rounded ears. His eyes remain yellow, but with larger irises which still lack visible pupils. Landorus' back and lower legs are stripped with dark pink, and his biceps and triceps adorned with dark pink upside down, raindrop like designs. He has four trailing cloud covered paws, each with three sharp dark pink claws. His tail remains largely unchanged, although it may be slightly smaller and shorter than before.

Gender differences

Landorus is a male-only species with no female counterpart.

Special abilities

Landorus is considered the god of fields, due to helping crops grow. His tail causes the soil to gain nutrition.

Behavior

Habitat

Landorus seems to live above the skies. Sometimes it stops on the Abundant Shrine in the Unova region, but only when Tornadus and Thundurus are in the same place.

Trivia

  • Landorus has the highest Special Attack of all Ground-type Pokémon.
  • Landorus is one of four Pokémon immune to one of its own types without the aid of an ability. He shares this trait with Gligar, Gliscor and Stunfisk.
  • Although Landorus is a Flying-type, it doesn't learn any moves of this type through leveling up.

Origin

In Keshin Forme, Landorus is based on the Inari, the kami of fertility. It may also have drawn inspiration from genies.

In Reijuu Forme, Landorus seems to be based on a predatory mammal, most likely a tiger or other large feline. It may also draw inspiration from the White Tiger of the Chinese Four Symbols constellation, or from Tezcatlipoca or Tepeyollotl, gods from the Aztec mythology that resemble a jaguar.

Name origin

Both Landorus and Landlos are derived from the word "land".

In other languages

Language Name Name Origin
German Demeteros From Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest.
French Démétéros
Korean 랜드로스 Raendeuroseu
Chinese (Mandarin) 土地雲 / 土地云 Tǔdìyún Literally "Land cloud".
