Yeah, deagle mentioned it to me before. I'll change it. Thanks for pointing it out
the defensive evs are to survive max atk kartana jolly leaf blade at -1(fini) and 3 hit ko to incineroar from max atk kartana at -1 sacred sword
One thing, this team sound good but i notice you have'nt any good response vs Kommo-o. And other set up engine(like snorlax) can be very probelmatic if Tapu koko isn't "ready". Why don't you use roar on suicune?
hm ill see what i can find with fini's ev's
My updated version use Assault Vest Knock Of Landorus, helps a lot vs Cresselia/Goth/Snorlax. As for Kommo-o, Ice Punch from Kanga deal a lot prior to its Z-Move, and I can finish it off with suicune Ice Beam etc. I also have Koko, and after an Intimidate, Koko tanks Poison Jab, allowing it to deal a huge chunk with DGleam.

You may have seen me on the trainer tower stream over the weekend where I won the London PC with this team.
Togedemaru + Charizard is a really strong pair, being able to shut down mega manectric/koko and just spam fire moves with greater ease. Adamant kartana + timid fini is also really neat, as you can afford to drop speed with tailwind on kart. It also forms a nice fwg core with zard and gives speed control + a way to reliably deal with tran/metagross, which either wall zard or outspeed and hit it hard. Lando is just a great glue and special lando gives me a favourable matchup vs opposing lando as well as keeping zard in check with stone edge. Lax was just added because its lax lol, and it makes setting tr awkward for my opp.
Notably this team has an amazing matchup vs the common goth lax mmane team thats been running round, i 4-0d my top 4 opponent twice with it.
A quick note on evs:
Zard OHKOs 140 HP kangs with overheat, which covers most kangs well, and lives lo koko tbolt outside of terrain.
Kartana lives lando tec rage and modest lele psychic in terrain (and by extension koko tbolt in terrain). Also outspeeds modest leles. Fini outspeeds kart by 1 point.
Well I can assure you. You are smarter than myself who has been trying to play competitive for years
Anyone have team suggestions for Landorus-Therian for VGC 2018?
