Latios (Japanese: ラティオス Ratiosu) is a Dragon/Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is Latias's male counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Latios looks similar to Latias, though he is blue and a bit larger; he is also similar to Lugia. Latios has an upside-down, white teardrop shape in the center of his blue face. In the middle of his chest, Latios has a red triangle, much like Latias', whose is blue, showing in some way they are related. In the movie Pokémon Heroes, Latios and Latias both serve as guardians. In Mega form, Latios has purple skin tone.

Special abilities

Latios comes with the ability Levitate, which causes Ground-type moves to always miss except the move Sand Attack. Latios is able to fold in his arms and fly at the speed of a jet. He can also make foes see images he has seen or what he imagines in his head. He can understand human speech. Even if he is hiding, Latios can detect the locations and emotions of others using telepathy. Latios can also refract light around him to make him appear invisible unless the light strikes him just right. Latios is the only known Pokémon that learns Luster Purge.

In the movie Pokémon Heroes, Latias and Latios also had the ability "Sight Sharing" which allowed Latias and people around her to see exactly what Latios is seeing and vice versa.

Appearances

Anime

Latios first debuted with his sister Latias in Pokémon Heroes. Annie and Oakley captured Latios and used his DNA along with the stolen Soul Dew to power the Defense Mechanism in the museum of Alto Mare. Latios ended up sacrificing himself to save Alto Mare from an enormous tidal wave.

A Latios owned by Tobias was used in The Semi-Final Frontier! in the semi-finals of the Sinnoh League, where he defeated Ash's Sceptile and Swellow and tied with Pikachu.

Latios, along with Latias, have appeared in the 18th movie and Mega Evolved.

Trivia

  • Although Latios' colors are mainly blue and white, the white was grey in Generation III.
  • Latios and Latias were the first Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon in National Pokédex order.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Latios and his female counterpart, Latias, other than ultra Necrozma.
  • Latios and Latias' curious, intelligent, and playful natures resemble more of dolphins or whales rather than dragons.
  • Latios was the first Legendary Pokémon to have a 100% rate of being male.
  • Even though Mega Latios was released in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it was coded in Pokémon X and Y but was unobtainable without hacking.
  • Mega Latios and Mega Latias looks exactly the same except for the eyes. Mega Latios has red eyes, while Mega Latias has yellow. In the shiny versions, Mega Latios still has his red eyes, while Mega Latias has green eyes.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Latios is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Pokéballs. During this time, it uses the move Steel Wing.
  • Latios (paired with Latias) is one of the collectable spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Origin

Latios is based on jets, dragons, birds, and possibly the concept of yang. Mega Latios somewhat resembles an Arwing, the spaceships used by the members of the eponymous paramilitary group in Nintendo's Star Fox series.

Etymology

Latios and Ratiosu come from "latere" ("to lie hidden" in Latin). The "os" is added to indicate masculinity.
