 Game Information
 Original Games
Latios roams around Hoenn after the Elite Four has been defeated in Ruby. Latios appears at Southern Island in Sapphire, but this is triggered by a Nintendo Event/E-Reader Card, and also in Emerald if you pick Red as the color of the Pokémon that was seen flying around Hoenn. By picking Blue as the color of the Pokémon seen flying around Hoenn, Latios can be found roaming Hoenn as well.
Latios can be found at the Dreamyard in Pokémon Black 2.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby, Latios will join you after you dispel Team Magma from Southern Island. This Latios will also have a Latiosite, which is required for Mega Evolution. A Latios can still be obtained in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, but an Eon Ticket must be obtained via Street Pass on your Nintendo 3DS.
 Spin-Off Games
Latios does not appear very often, limited to appearing at Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Latios appears on the 25th Floor of Northern Range by completing Pitfall Valley in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, Latios appears at DPB5 of Sky Rift, but a Stone Plate or Mystery Part are required. Latios can also appear at B24 of Midnight Forest, but a Stone Plate or Mystery Part are required.
Latios appears at Explorers of Sky at DPB5 of Sky Fissure, but a Secret Slab or Enigma Part are required to find it. Additionally, Latios can appear at B24 of Dark Night Forest, but a Secret Slab or Enigma Part are required. Latios is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the 23rd Floor of Fire Mountains, but a Secret Slab or Enigma Part is required to find it.
Latios appears in the sky of the Oblivia Region in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs as a Boss Pokémon. Because Latios is battled in the sky, the capture loops cannot be broken by contact with the Pokémon, but his attacks still can break the capture line and cause damage.
Latios appears in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure by beating all the high scores of Salamence's Air Ace (a score greater than 25,000).
Latios can be found at any of the "Meadows" stages in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.

 Anime/Manga Information
After his Darkrai was defeated, Tobias sent out a Latios as his second Pokémon in the episode The Semi-Final Frontier. Latios would defeat Sceptile using Giga Impact, then defeat Swellow using Luster Purge, but would fall simultaneously with Ash's Pikachu, ending the match as Pikachu was Ash's final Pokémon.
Along with Latias, Latios would also support and accompany Emerald during his journey through Kanto's Battle Frontier, sometimes disguising himself as a human. He would also use his shared vision ability-along with Latias-to help Frontier Brain Spenser communicate with the Pokédex Holders. Once Guile Hideout was successfully defeated, Latios and Latias would return to Southern Island.
Latios would appear in Chapters 303, 308, 313, 314, 319, 326-330, 333 & 336.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
In Generation VI, Latios resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Latios resides in a great speed tier, being able to outspeed big threats like Garchomp and Keldeo. With 130 Special Attack and a strong Draco Meteor, Latios can play the role of a wallbreaker and sweeper. It can play the role of a supporter with an offensive Defog set that can remove entry hazards and provide great utility and power to the table. Latios's best sets are its Life Orb attacker set, a Calm Mind set that can break through walls with a boosted Draco Meteor, and a Choice Scarf set that gives a revenge killing aspect to Latios and allows it to outspeed threats such as Tornadus-T and Raikou. The main flaws to Latios are its weakness to the ever common Knock Off and Pursuit, with the latter putting Latios in an extremely difficult situation that it will rarely survive. Latios is also lacking in physical bulk, making it easier to take out with threats like Talonflame and Mega Metagross.
Latios is also a great option in the Uber tier of competitive battling, where it can use its signature item Soul Dew. Latios is a very strong wallbreaker with Soul Dew, which essentially is a free Calm Mind boost in an item. Latios can also soft check Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre, two major threats in the tier, and deal heavy damage in return. Its access to Defog gives it great offensive utility by being able to remove hazards with ease and allows for Latios to find a role on many teams. Latios can run an offensive Defog set, an all-out attacking set that offers wallbreaking capabiltiies, or a Calm Mind set with Draco Meteor to break through special walls with ridiculously powerful moves. Unfortunately, Latios's STAB moves have common immunitites, with Xerneas and Yveltal being able to switch into Draco Meteor and Psyshock with ease. Latios is also susceptible to Pursuit and Knock Off, both of which are very common in the Uber tier.
