these three are so annoying as they always are faster than my +1 speed boost sharpedo, so something to counter all of them in one?

Taking into the fact that all 3 are weak to Ice:

Mamoswine @ Life Orb/ Focus Sash
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly
- Ice Shard
- Icicle Crash/ Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- Superpower/ Endeavor

Weavile @ Choice Band/ Scarf
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Adamant/ Jolly
- Ice Shard
- Ice Punch
- Pursuit
- Brick Break/ Night Slash

All things considered though, none of the Kami Trio (that's what Landorus/ Tornadus/ Thundurus are called) should outspeed a +1 Sharpedo with max speed EVs unless they're scarfed. You could also be facing Prankster Tornadus/ Thundurus, in which case that would explain why your +1 Sharpedo is being out sped.

The problem with both Mamo & Weavile is that they're also weak to fighting & grass/ fighting, bug & fairy. In terms of synergy, you should remember to cover those weaknesses with the rest of your team.

Weavile would be reliable enough,i think. With 252 evs in Speed and attack,and choice band,he will most probably OHKO the trios
thanks. i added a donphan with ice shard that were able to 2HKO all of them

At the top of my head I can only think of one. (Then again I'm up at 4 AM writing this xD)

Mamoswine

It can practically kill them all with a physical Ice type attack. That or force your opponent to switch into someone else. Though Ice Shard should get the job done. If you set up Stealth Rocks then you can try to stall them out through that.

They are all Flying types.
Landorus is Ground-Flying, Thundurus is Electric-Flying, and Tornadus is pure Flying.

Flying is weak to Rock, Electric, and Ice.

Electric is a bad counter right off the bat due to Landorus' Ground Type.
Rock is okay but it only does x1 Damage to Landorus, who seems to be the most common of the three.
Ice, however, is your best bet. 4x Damage to Landorus, 2x damage to the other two.
A fast Ice type counters all 3 nicely. A nice fast Ice Type you can use is Weavile.

Weavile @ Choice Band/No Item (If using Pickpocket)
Nature: Adamant (^Atk vSpAtk)
Ability: Pressure/Pickpocket
EVs: 252 Spd, 252 Atk, 4 HP
Ice Punch
Poison Jab
Aerial Ace
Ice Shard

Even though it has its fair share of weaknesses, 120 Attack and 125 Speed with a STAB Ice Punch will make Landorus faint and inflict serious damage on the others. The other moves are for coverage. Pressure runs down PP, Pickpocket steals items and can disrupt strategies.
