How to catch Landorus for the Season of Legends special research in Pokémon Go

You’ll get another chance soon enough.

The start of the Season of Legends event for Pokémon Go is underway. The first event in this three-month-long season, Search for Legends, features the Season of Legends quest that will likely take players a good amount of time to finish. It’s the name of the season, and it’s also a special research. Each of the tasks in this project requires players to take a snapshot of one of the legendary Pokémon being featured during the event: Thundurus, Tornadus, and Landorus. While the event is happening, Tornadus is the current five-star raid Pokémon, making it an easy catch for players who need to take a snapshot of it. Thundurus is next and will be appearing from March 11 to March 16. After that, the Therian Formes of Thundurus and Tornadus will be appearing. Landorus was already featured from March 1 to the 6. That’s a big snag for many players who did not go out of their way to capture Landorus, as he does not appear on the schedule.

Players should not have anything to fear. Because the quest information only says Landorus, it’s likely players will be able to take a snapshot of the Therian Forme Landorus when it appears in April, given the Therian Formes of Thundurus and Tornadus are appearing during the second half of March.

It’s also likely, if this is not the case, as we have not confirmed it, that Landorus will appear once more close to the end of the season for players to try one more time to capture Landorus before the transition to the next three-month-long season. Niantic is pretty good about giving players multiple opportunities to complete quests, and it’s even better that these revolve around legendary Pokémon.

Because the Season of Legends special research initially appeared just after Landorus left five-star raids, some players may already have a Landorus in their collection. However, that may not be the case for everyone, making this special research a tough one to approach. If you don’t have this quest finished right now and are stuck on Landorus, don’t worry about it. All you have to do is make sure to catch Tornadus and Thundurus while they’re available and then wait for Landorus to appear again. The Therian Forme Landorus is set to make its debut in April, and we’re likely going to see Landorus before the end of the Season of Legends.
