Fast moves
Mud Shot (unchanged)
Extrasensory (lost Rock Throw)

Charged moves
Earthquake
Bulldoze
Stone Edge
Superpower
(lost Earth Power, Outrage, Rock Slide, Focus Blast)

With Earth Power it would have been the undisputed #1 Ground type by far. With EQ it's still arguably the #1 overall Ground attacker, but loses the DPS race to shadow Mamoswine. Losing Rock Throw eliminates its potential niche as a surprisingly good Rock attacker (better than Tyranitar) for those who might have missed Rhyhorn CD and weren't swimming in Rampardos/Terrakion.

MS / EQ + SE should still make it a damn good PVP fighter - EP + RS might have been too good - and SP could sneak in as a legit spicy option (if not outright preferred for certain uses).

Still pretty good for raids, I’m still planning on raiding for a good one or two.

It could have been worse, like just stuck with Bulldoze.
I can't think of a good sig right now.

Thx for the heads up. It appears to still be better than the incarnate forme?

It’s still better than any other ground type (not counting shadows or megas).

Goddamn.

This is a pretty major letdown, although I get the whole "too good" angle (especially when it comes to pvp, since RS would made it a beast).

It's still better than the rest, but the difference with Groudon is marginal. And Excadrill and Garchomp have their defensive typings, so it's a total let down for me.

I'll raid the free passes, but I'm not going all out anymore.

My sentiment too.

Landorus does have a fairly unique typing too, I’d say it’s definitely worth going for a few good ones at least.

But that typing only sets it back. It's not worth anything as a Flying attacker due to moveset, and as a ground type the secondary type doesn't help it at all. Excadrill and Garchomp have extra resistances due to their secondary type that actually help with what you counter.
