Latios (Japanese: ラティオス Latios) is a dual-type Dragon/Psychic Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Latios can Mega Evolve into Mega Latios using the Latiosite.

It is a member of the eon duo along with Latias.

Biology

Latios is a Pokémon with a birdlike body stylized after a plane. Its body flows slowly into a thick neck, giving it a bulky appearance. It has no legs, usually floating instead. Most of its body is blue, with white areas near its arms and a white stripe on its back that extend up to its head. Jet-plane wings sit on top of its back, while two tall, jagged fins point behind it from its rear. A red triangle marks the center of its chest, while a blue mask partially covers its face. Long, ear-like fins extend from its jaws to over its head, and its eyes are red. It has three-fingered arms with a blue covering on the outer side of the lower arms. Latios is a male-only species, with Latias being its female counterpart.

Latios has a gentle nature and will avoid fighting whenever possible. It can fly faster than a jet by tucking in its arms. In the fifth movie, Latios had the ability "Sight Sharing" (Japanese: ゆめうつし Dream Analysis) which allowed Latias and people around it to see exactly what Latios was seeing. Oakley also mentioned that it can shape-shift. It prefers compassionate Trainers, to whom it opens its heart. Latios uses telepathy to detect locations and the emotions of others and can understand human speech. It lives by the water's edge. Latios loves Latios Treats made by Snacksworth, who once encountered and followed it to a secret spot in the past. Latios can be summoned by the Eon Flute.

Latios is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Luster Purge. In Generation IX, Simple Beam is also one of its signature moves.

Forms

Latios can Mega Evolve into Mega Latios.

As Mega Latios, the blue parts of its body change to purple. Horns grow from the side of its head and run along its jaw. It loses the wings on its back and similar but larger wings attach to its lower arms, normally held in a level position. Triangle shapes now mark the forward point of its wings instead of its chest.

Mega Latios is said to be one of the fastest Pokémon in the world to exist. Due to Mega Evolving, Mega Latios can achieve even higher speed in flight. Mega Latios is both larger and faster than Mega Latias. It can reach a speed of Mach 4[1].

In Pokémon Emerald, the roaming Pokémon is chosen in a sequence immediately after the credits where, after hearing a television report, the player is asked the color of the Pokémon in it. If blue is selected Latios roams Hoenn and Latias is found at the island. If red is selected, Latios is found at the island and Latias roams Hoenn.

Main series

Major appearances

Latios (M05)

Latios debuted in Pokémon Heroes: Latios & Latias. Annie and Oakley captured Latios and used him to power the Defense Mechanism of Alto Mare, along with the stolen Soul Dew. Latios ended up sacrificing himself to save Alto Mare from an enormous tidal wave.

Other

In Pikachu's Ocean Adventure, a Latios and Latias used their powers to help Pikachu, Meowth, and the other Pokémon search for the legendary "Wailord's Tear" that was said to be beneath the ocean.

Latios made his main series debut in The Semi-Final Frontier!, under the ownership of Tobias. He was used during Tobias's Full Battle against Ash in the semifinals of the Lily of the Valley Conference. The Eon Pokémon defeated Sceptile and Swellow, but was defeated by Pikachu, who was knocked out at the same time.

In Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, a Latios capable of Mega Evolving was summoned alongside Latias and a Shiny Rayquaza by Hoopa to protect it from the shadow Hoopa Unbound. The trio protected Hoopa from the shadow Hoopa and its reinforcements, Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Kyurem, in Dahara City. Eventually, the battle ended after the shadow Hoopa was sealed in a Prison Bottle, and Latios departed alongside Latias for their home.

A Latios appeared in Rocket Revengers!, as part of Latias's vision. In the next episode, he was revealed to be pursued by a Pokémon hunter. With Latias's assistance, he was rescued by Ash and his friends. At the end of the episode, Ash attempted to befriend Latios, but was rejected by him due to his distant nature and distrust in humans. Latios then departed with Latias to Alto Mare.

They travel in herds, but even so, are rarely seen. They're a combination of Dragon- and Psychic-types."

Trivia

  • Latios shares its category with Latias. They are both known as the Eon Pokémon.

Origin

Latios and Latias appear to be a cross between a jet plane (due to their wing shape and speedy flight), a dragon, and a bird. In particular, their lack of feet and continuous levitation might be inspired by the common swift, a bird with tiny feet (its Latin name Apus means without feet) that spends most of its life in the air. Similarly, they might be inspired by the martlet, a mythical bird in English heraldry that never roosts and is usually depicted with tufts of feathers in place of feet. Their red and blue plumage might be based on parrots in the genus Eos. They could also be based on junglefowl due to their possible shared origin with Blaziken.

Due to their classification as Eon Pokémon and their connection to the Soul Dew, Latios and Latias might be inspired by the aeons in Gnosticism, which are said to be emanations of God. In Valentinianism, these aeons form male/female pairs called syzygies. They may also be loosely based on the Chinese philosophical concept of yin and yang, which are opposite but interconnected natural forces. Latios, being male and the more aggressive of the two, would represent yang. Their names and Latios’s signature move Luster Purge might also be a reference to Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn.

Name origin

Latios may be a combination of lateō (Latin for I conceal, I lie hidden) and -os (Latin masculine suffix). It might also reference Eos (the Greek goddess of dawn) or Eos (a genus of parrots with red and blue plumage).
