Latias (Japanese: ラティアス Latias) is a dual-type Dragon/Psychic Legendary Pokémon.

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

It is a member of the eon duo of Hoenn along with Latios.

Biology

Latias is a bird-like, dragon Pokémon. It has an aerodynamic body and glass-like down feathers. The lower half of its body is red with jet-plane wings and fin-like feet. It has a blue triangular marking on its chest. It has white and red arms that can be tucked into its body. The upper-half of its body is white. It has triangular ears and a red face with a white pentagon in the middle. Latias is a female only species; Latios is the male counterpart.

Latias ruffles its feathers and cry loudly when there is hostility toward it. Its downy feathers can enfold its body and refract light, which allows it to become invisible or alter its appearance. It can also use its down to use its signature move, Mist Ball. It is highly intelligent and can understand human speech. It is capable using telepathy to communicate with others. In the fifth movie, Latias had the ability "Sight Sharing", which allowed Latias and people around it to see exactly what Latios was seeing. It normally does not make contact with humans or other Pokémon, and disappears when an enemy is nearby. It forms herds with several members, and is usually found near water.

In the anime

Major appearances

Latias (M05)

Latias made its debut anime appearance in the fifth movie, Pokémon Heroes. Latias and its brother, Latios were the targets of Annie and Oakley. Latias assisted Ash in the mission to save Latios.

Other

A Latias also appeared in Pikachu's Ocean Adventure where, along with Latios, it used its powers to help Pikachu, Meowth, and the other Pokémon search for the legendary "Wailord's Tear" beneath the ocean.

A Latias appeared in SS025 under the ownership of Nurse Joy. It was used against Forrest's Rhyperior in a battle to prove Forrest's capabilities as a potential Gym Leader, where Latias proved victorious.

Minor appearances

Latias made a brief cameo along with Latios at the beginning of Jirachi: Wish Maker and The Rise of Darkrai.

In the manga

Latias as a human in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Latias, along with Latios, was befriended by Emerald and took the young Trainer to the Battle Frontier. It has appeared as a human a few times as the saga continued by using its ability to reflect light.

In the TCG

Main article: Latias (TCG)

In the TFG

One Latias figure has been released.

Other appearances

Latias and Latios Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

After Latias appears from its Poké Ball, it will fly off the stage. It and Latios will then alternately zoom onto the stage with Steel Wing damaging any opponent that collides with them. It may also cause movement of items as well.

Trophy Information

Latias appears with her counterpart, Latios.

"Eon Pokémon. There are only female Latias and only male Latios. If they sense the presence of a human or an enemy, they will generally use the light-bending trait of their down coats to make themselves invisible. They use telepathy to speak with companions. They travel in herds, but even so, are rarely seen. They're a combination of Dragon- and Psychic-types."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Latias returns as a Poké Ball Pokémon. It uses Steel Wing to quickly fly across the stage several times to damage targets.

Trophy information

Latias once again shares a trophy with its counterpart.

Latias and Latios are Eon Pokémon. Both are Dragon/Psychic-type Pokémon. The red Latias is female, while the blue Latios is male. By folding in their arms, they can fly faster than fighter jets. They combine speed and teamwork when they cross paths to attack fighters with Steel Wing.

Trivia

  • Latias and Latios were the first Legendary Pokémon to have genders.
  • Latias shares the same species name with its male counterpart Latios. They are both known as the Eon Pokémon.
  • Despite being Legendary Pokémon, regular battle music is played when Latias and Latios are encountered. They share this trait with Shaymin and Cresselia.
    • However, when either Latias or Latios are found in the wild, the pre-battle encounter animation is different than those of ordinary Pokémon, as it is a distorting screen.
  • The triangle-shaped ring on the chest of Latias has the same color as the main body of its male counterpart Latios, even when Shiny.
  • Latias and Lugia are the only Legendary Pokémon in the anime to be seen being able to produce offspring.
Pre-alpha sketch of the unused Pokémon
  • A pre-alpha sketch depicts an unused Pokémon or alternative form of Latias with the traits of both a Latias and a Blaziken.
  • Latias weighs exactly as much as Ethan when viewed from the "Size" data in its Pokédex's entry. It shares this trait with Clefable, Gurdurr and Greninja.

Origin

Latias appears to be a cross between a jet plane and a dragon. It and Latios may also draw inspiration from the philosophy of yin and yang. They may also be based upon the aeons in Gnosticism, being that certain aeons are immaterial beings of concepts existing in pairs of males and females emanated from God and one another; also, their species is "Eon." Latios and Latias are also based on birds, and due to Latias's shared origin with Blaziken, they could be based on junglefowl.

Name origin

Latias may derive from lateo (Latin for to lie hidden). As as a suffix may have been added to make it sound more feminine, opposite the more masculine-sounding os in Latios.
