Yes, Acrobatics make much more sense than Brave Bird. The reason why I chose Brave Bird is because Landorus can use a Life Orb with this move instead of wasting its item slot with a Flying Gem, though thinking now Brave Bird would probably kill Landorus too fast to abuse the coverage because of this move's recoil combined with Life Orb recoil. Also, Choice Scarf Landorus would be unable to use Acrobatics for obvious reasons; he would still have to resort to Stone Edge for coverage.
Either way, Acrobatics is not a bad move, and DD AcroQuake Landorus would be a very threathening sweeper for sandstorm teams, probably would be viable even outside them. Also:
252Atk Flight Gem +2 Sand Force Landorus
vs 252HP/252Def Leftovers Hippowdon
(+Def): 79% - 93% (334 - 394 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.
A non-Water/Grass/Ice physical sweeper that has a high chance to OHKO one of the best physical walls on OU after Spikes damage??? Yes please! Dear Game Freak, if you don't give either Acrobatics or Brave Bird to Landorus, at least create another Flying-type physical move and give to him! Landorus is calling for a Flying-type STAB move.
