why the heck is the mystery dungeon recruit rate listed as 0.1% ??? it joins your party automatically in the storyline, so surely thats 100%? 折り紙ガイ - 離す 貢献 15:28, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

That's what's in the game data. I think you can refuse to recruit it at that time and get it later. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 12:08, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
That's not true. Latios and Latias are one-time only.Kiryu 05:03, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Appear possibility?

What is the possibility of catching a Latios without going to that special island (eg: 3000 to 1)? I caught mine in Verdanturf. - unsigned comment from BlueGasMask (talkcontribs)

The possibility is A million to 0. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links11:46 16 Aug 2008
In Sapphire (and Emerald if you select red at the TV) it can only be obtained by going to the island or trading. You should even be able to catch Latias in Verdanturf - there's no grass there. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 12:08, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
There is no Latias or Latios in Verdanturf in any game. They appear around the grass of Hoenn, you could maybe hack the game and make a grass there. But that's the only way to get a Latios there, I won't give you tips on hacking, not here, maybe on YouTube, but not here. TheBlazikenMaster 14:13, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

They also appear on the water routes. But yeah, there's no tall grass or water in Verdanturf. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 14:40, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I think I meant it was on the route beside it, where you find all the volbeats.BlueGasMask 09:57, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Then you have Ruby and/or selected blue at the TV in Emerald. In either case, Latias is the one at the island. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 17:21, 16 September 2008 (UTC)


In Pokémon Heroes, Oakley mentioned that Latios could also shapeshift, not just Latias. Is this worth mentioning in the "Special Abilities" section? Taromon777 21:49, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

More than one

I think it should be worth mentioning that, Like latias , most trios, and others, that latios isn't a legendary with one member only (at least I don't think so, since the games show others with him, and other sources seem to confirm this as well.) - unsigned comment from Metalucario (talkcontribs)

He isn't. It was revealed in Pokémon Heroes. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 23:57, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

"Latios has the highest max Special Attack of any Pokémon when holding Soul Dew except for a Shuckle using Power Trick" is something I really question, because doesn't Power Trick modify Attack and not Special Attack? It should simply say in the Trivia that Latios has the second highest maximum offensive stat (Attack and Special Attack) of all Pokémon, except for Shuckle using Power Trick. How would that work?

Only STABs by lvling up

Out of all Legendary pokemon Latios and Manaphy are the only two to learn only STAB damage dealing moves by leveling up. Does it worth adding into Trivia? --ЫъГЬ 14:52, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I would imagine so. Catboy41 16:13, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

While browsing through the web some time ago I found a mythical creature that shares some traits with the Lati duo. There is only a pair of male and female, feather stumps instead of legs, producing another pair before dying, and having 'ion' in the name. They could possibly be based on this creature. Here is the rather small Wikipedia article on it: Cyan Nyan (talk) 00:23, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
