Artwork of Latias and Latios
Eon duo is a popular fan-created term that collectively refers to the Legendary Eon Pokémon Latias and Latios. They are also referred to as [email protected] (as the symbol "@" looks like an "a" inside an "o") or the Lati twins.
- Main article: Latias (Pokémon)
Latias, the female Eon Pokémon, can be found without a special event item in Pokémon Sapphire, Emerald (depending on the player's choice), HeartGold, White 2, Alpha Sapphire, and Ultra Moon.
Latias' stats lean towards defense, unlike Latios, whose stats are on the offensive side. Latias can augment its high Special Defense with its signature move, Mist Ball, which weakens the foe's Special Attack 50% of the time.
In Pokémon Ruby and Omega Ruby, as well as Pokémon Emerald if the player chooses Latios to roam Hoenn, with an Eon Ticket the player can go to Southern Island, where they will encounter Latias. In Pokémon SoulSilver, if the player has an Enigma Stone, Latias can be found and captured in Pewter City.
In Ultra Moon, Latias may be found in the Ultra Space Wilds by following a blue Ultra Wormhole to the Cave World during the Ultra Warp Ride minigame.
In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Latias can be called with a Ranger Sign once the player progresses far enough as Summer.
- Main article: Latios (Pokémon)
Latios is the male member of the duo, found without a special event item in Pokémon Ruby, Emerald (depending on the player's choice), SoulSilver, Black 2, Omega Ruby, and Ultra Sun.
While Latios and Latias are very similar, Latios has higher offensive stats. Latios can augment its high Special Attack with its signature move, Luster Purge, which has a 50% chance of lowering the target's Special Defense.
In Pokémon Sapphire and Alpha Sapphire, as well as Pokémon Emerald if the player chooses Latias to roam Hoenn, with an Eon Ticket the player can go to Southern Island, where they will encounter Latios. In Pokémon HeartGold, if the player has an Enigma Stone, Latios can be found and captured in Pewter City.
In Ultra Sun, Latios may be found in the Ultra Space Wilds by following a blue Ultra Wormhole to the Cave World during the Ultra Warp Ride minigame.

Latias and Latios debuted in Pokémon Heroes: Latios & Latias, where they serve as the guardians of Alto Mare and protectors of the Soul Dew. Latias also displayed the ability to shape-shift into humans such as Alto Mare resident Bianca. They were targeted by thieves Annie and Oakley, who desired possession of the Soul Dew. Latios was eventually captured by them, forcing Latias to enlist the assistance of Ash, who she seemed to have a crush on. Though they were able to rescue Latios and thwart Annie and Oakley's plans, the villainous pair's actions still endangered all of Alto Mare, forcing Latios to sacrifice himself and turn into the new Soul Dew, just like his father did in the past.
A Latias and Latios capable of Mega Evolving both appeared in Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, being summoned alongside a Shiny Rayquaza by Hoopa to protect it from the shadow Hoopa Unbound. The trio protected Hoopa from the shadow Hoopa and its reinforcements, Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Kyurem, in Dahara City. Eventually, the battle ended after the shadow Hoopa was sealed in a Prison Bottle, and Latias and Latios departed for their home.
In the Diamond & Pearl series, Latias and Latios have been shown to be owned by Pokémon Trainers in the anime, despite them being Legendary Pokémon.
