Latias (Japanese: ラティアス Latias) is a recurring Pokémon character in the anime.


Latias and Ash

Latias first appeared in The Road Most Traveled!, when it was hit by Team Rocket who'd been sent blasting off. The impact sent Latias falling into the water below, the crash heard by Ash and his Pokémon. Spotted Latias injured, Ash jumped into the water and with the help of Buizel was able to get Latias back to land.

Using a potion and bandages, Ash and his Pokémon stood guard over Latias whilst she recovered but were spotted by Team Rocket. The next morning, Latias was captured by Team Rocket alongside Ash who tried to protect her and was soon freed by Pikachu. After recovering, Latias flew off but started to follow Ash whilst invisible.

In A Fated Face-Off!, after Misty captured Clauncher, Latias was seen invisibly watching.

Latias reappeared in Galar during the events of Must Be Our Heroes and the Witch!.

In Bearing Down Easy!, Latias watched as Ash trained a wild Beartic to take control of its Ice-type moves.

In A Squad Worth of Passion!, Latias was seen again watching Ash and the Squirtle Squad's actions to put out a fire in Vermilion City.

In The Same Moon, Now and Forever!, Latias saved Ash and Pikachu from falling into a river, but left before they knew how they were saved.

Latias was seen again in JN143, where she was seen accompanying Ash and his Pokémon's rescue process from a trapped Wailord.

In JN144, Latias was seen again where she was watching Ash and his friends helping a lost Banette reunite with Nurse Joy.

In JN145, Latias watched as Team Rocket ambushed Pikachu and managed to alert Ash to the trouble he was in. Latias watched as Ash saved a Slakoth, before rescuing them. After sending Team Rocket blasting off, Latias showed Ash, Misty, and Brock a vision of a Latios in danger.

In JN146, Latias led Ash and his friends to Latios, only for them to be attacked by a Pokémon hunter who was after the two Eon Pokémon. While protecting Latios, Latias was turned to stone by the hunter's energy blaster. The hunter fled with Latias, but Ash was later able to rescue her and restore her to normal by having Pikachu destroy the hunter's device. After Ash and Latios had defeated the hunter's Hydreigon, Latias held him in place until Officer Jenny could arrest him. Latias subsequently bid farewell to Ash and left with Latios, arriving in Alto Mare sometime later.

Personality and characteristics

Latias being invisible

At first, Latias was initially distrustful towards humans as she became scared and hostile to them. However, after seeing Ash and his Pokémon's selflessness, Latias was convinced that some humans are trustworthy. Since then, Latias started taking an interest in Ash as she begins following and observing him on his journeys whilst being invisible. In addition, Latias values Ash's safety as she would protect him from danger.
