Trivia

Origin

Latias is based on a dragon, althought the pair may also draw inspiration from the philosophy of Yin/Yang and psychology of id/ego.

Name origin

It is possible that Latias's name is based on the Latin word lateo, hidden. The -as suffix in its name indicates that it is female, while the -os in Latios indicates that it is male.
