Latios (ラティオス) is the 197th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. He is a Dragon/Psychic Type, and is known as the Eon Pokémon.

Latios uses the Levitate Ability. Levitate gives him an immunity to all Ground Type attacks and the Spikes Entry Hazard.

Latios does not evolve and does not have any pre-evolved form.

Latios is in the Undiscovered Egg Group; like most other Legendary Pokémon he cannot breed. It takes Latios 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Physiology

[edit] Gender Differences

Latios is a male-only Pokémon.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] 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.

In Heart Gold, Latios appears by way of a Nintendo Event, which appears at Pewter City, and in Soul Silver Latios roams Kanto.

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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Latios appears in a total of seven sets, the 5th Movie Halfdeck, EX Trainer Kit Latios, PokéPark Forest, a Pokémon Card Game Promo, 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.

Latios 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 Delta Species Cards), EX Dragon Frontiers (EX Delta Species Card), and Great Encounters sets.

[edit] Other Appearances

Latios appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as one of the Pokémon to appear from a Poké Ball. He attacks alongside Latias, causing damage to the opponents and blowing both items and players around the stage.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

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.

[edit] Movies

Wild Latios appear in the films Heroes: Latios and Latias, Jirachi Wishmaker and The Rise of Darkrai.

[edit] Manga

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.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Latios finds himself in the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it can't use Soul Dew in the Over-Utilized Tier, he is still a force to be reckoned with as a Special Sweeper, and he can use Psyshock to attack special walls that would otherwise be able to resist its attacks.

When in the Uber Tier, Latios is able to use Soul Dew, increasing his sweeping potential.

Steel-Type Pokémon and Special Walls will do well against Latios, and he won't like going against a Tyranitar. Faster Pokémon with the right move will do a lot of damage to Latios, such as Starmie and a Choice Scarf Garchomp, for examples.
