Artwork of Latias and Latios
Eon duo is a popular fan-created term that collectively refers to the Legendary Eon Pokémon Latias and Latios. They are also referred to as Lati@s (as the symbol "@" looks like an "a" inside an "o") or the Lati twins.
- Main article: Latias (Pokémon)
Latias, the female Eon Pokémon, can be found without a special event item in Pokémon Sapphire, Emerald (depending on the player's choice), HeartGold, White 2 and Alpha Sapphire.
Latias's stats lean towards defense, unlike Latios, whose stats are on the offensive side. Latias can weaken its male counterpart with its signature move, Mist Ball. 50% of the time, the move will weaken the foe's Special Attack.
In Pokémon Ruby and Omega Ruby, as well as Pokémon Emerald if the player chooses Latios to roam Hoenn, with an Eon Ticket the player can go to Southern Island, where they will encounter Latias. In Pokémon SoulSilver, if the player has an Enigma Stone, Latias can be found and captured in Pewter City.
In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Latias can be called with a Ranger Sign once the player progresses far enough as Summer.
- Main article: Latios (Pokémon)
Latios is the male member of the duo, found without a special event item in Pokémon Ruby, Emerald (depending on the player's choice), SoulSilver, Black 2 and Omega Ruby.
While Latios and Latias are very similar, Latios has higher offensive stats. Latios can counter Latias's higher defensive stats with its signature move, Luster Purge. This move has a rather high chance of lowering the target's Special Defense.
In Pokémon Sapphire and Alpha Sapphire, as well as Pokémon Emerald if the player chooses Latias to roam Hoenn, with an Eon Ticket the player can go to Southern Island, where they will encounter Latios. In Pokémon HeartGold, if the player has an Enigma Stone, Latios can be found and captured in Pewter City.
In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Latios can be called with a Ranger Sign once the player progresses far enough as Ben.
