 Game Information
 Original Games
Latias appears at Southern Island in Ruby, but this is triggered by a Nintendo Event/E-Reader Card. Latias roams around Hoenn after the Elite Four has been defeated in Sapphire, and also in Emerald if you pick Red as the color of the Pokémon that was seen flying around Hoenn. Otherwise, Latias appears at Southern Island via aforementioned event.
Latias can be found in the Dreamyard in Pokémon White 2.
 Spin-off Games
Latias does not appear very often, limited to appearing at Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Latias appears on the 25th Floor of Pitfall Valley by completing Pitfall Valley in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, Latias appears at B10 of Sky Rift, but a Stone Plate or Mystery Part is required. Latias can also appear at B10 of Happy Outlook, but a Stone Part or Enigma Part are required.
Latias appears at Explorers of Sky at B10 of Sky Fissure, but a Secret Slab or Enigma Part are required to find it. Additionally, Latias can appear at Joy Cape B10, but a Stone Part or Enigma Part are required. Latias is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the 22nd Floor of Weird Mountain, but a Secret Slab or Enigma Part is required to find it.
Latias appears in the sky of the Oblivia Region in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs as a Boss Pokémon. Because Latias is battled in the sky, the capture loops cannot be broken by contact with the Pokémon, but her attacks still can break the capture line and cause damage.
Latias appears in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure by beating all the high scores on Pelipper's Sky Flap Race.
Latias can be found at any of the "Meadows" stages in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
 Trading Card Game
Latias appears in a total of seven sets, the 5th Movie Halfdeck, EX Trainer Kit Latias, PokéPark Forest, a Nintendo Promo, the 10th Movie Commemoration Set, a Heart Gold/Soul Silver Promo, Pokémon Organized Play Series 7 as a Rare Card and the Dragon Vault sub-set.
Latias is listed as a Rare Card in the EX Dragon (EX Card), EX Deoxys (Shiny Card), EX Delta Species (Delta Species Card), EX Holon Phantoms (2 EX Cards), EX Dragon Frontiers (EX Delta Species Card), and Great Encounters sets.
 Other Appearances
Latias appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as one of the Pokémon to appear from a Poké Ball. She attacks alongside Latios, causing damage to the opponents and blowing both items and players around the stage.
 Anime/Manga Information
A Nurse Joy that also serves as a Pokémon League Inspector used a Latias in a Special Episode that has yet to be given a name in English, the episode titled Pewter Gym - The Biggest Crisis Ever! Latias would take on Rhyperior and emerge victorious.
Latias would assist Emerald during his quest through the Hoenn Battle Frontier, oftentimes disguising herself as a human to assist Emerald. She would also give assistance to Frontier Brain Spenser to assist him in communicating with the other Pokédex Holders by using a shared vision ability with Latios. It would return to Southern Island with Latios after the defeat of Guile Hideout.
Latias appears in Chapters 303, 308, 310, 311, 313, 314, 319, 326, 327, 333 and 336.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Latias finds herself in the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling. Soul Dew would not become available in Generation V until the release of Black 2 and White 2, which is what makes Latias very dangerous (along with banning her to the Uber Tier in the Fourth Generation).
Soul Dew increases Latias's Special Attack and Special Defense by 50%, making an already dangerous special sweeper even tougher to go against. Getting a revenge-KO with a physical sweeper is a great option, as Latias has a relatively lower Defense.
