History

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201
Statues of Latias and Latios in Alto Mare

Latios and his sister, Latias, lived in the Secret Garden in Alto Mare, where they were the guardians of the Soul Dew. They were friends with Lorenzo and Bianca.

This Pokémon had a no-nonsense, very serious personality. Although he did not like to fight, he would attack intruders of the Secret Garden without hesitation or anyone attempting or succeeding to inflict harm on his sister Latias. As a result of his personality traits, he was extremely protective of Latias.

Latios and Latias presented some very unique powers in the movie, such as sight-sharing, invisibility and shape shifting.

At the end of the movie, Latios had to sacrifice himself to save Alto Mare, and turned into the new Soul Dew, just like his father in the past.

At the end movie credits, two Latios can be seen flying with Latias. They are believed to be the spirits of Latios and his father.

In The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, he was seen in Pikachu's memories.

Personality and characteristics

Latios after sacrificing himself

Latios was shown to be a mature and unselfish protector, being ready risk his own life for the sake of both his own little sister and the town of Alto Mare.

Latios was seen to deeply care about his little sister, as it was ready to both playfully play with her, and also later protect her from being kidnapped, even thought it caused even more intense pain for him. In the end, Latios was shown to be ready to save his home town, despite being weakened and knowing that he wouldn't be able to live through it, serving his duty as the Guardian of Alto Mare until the very end of his life. Even after his death, his spirit stays with Latias, keeping her from feeling lonely and carrying on with his role of her big brother.
