In spin-off games
In Pokémon Shuffle, the Latiosite allows the player to Mega Evolve Latios.
The player can obtain the Latiosite by passing Level 50 on a Mega Latias escalation battle in Weeks 4 and 5 of the event rotation.
The Latiosite was also available as a prize during the Mega Latios escalation battles prior to the event rotation system. This escalation battle ran on the Nintendo 3DS version from November 24 to December 8, 2015; April 26 to May 10, 2016; June 27 to July 11, 2017; and January 9 to 23, 2018. It ran on the Pokémon Shuffle Mobile from April 26 to May 10, 2016; June 27 to July 11, 2017; and January 9 to 23, 2018.

In the manga
In Latias Flies, Latios and Latias were revealed to have obtained their respective Mega Stones. Using the Latiosite in combination with his Mega Bracelet, Ruby was able to Mega Evolve Latios and soar in the sky. He later Mega Evolved Latios again to battle Zinnia and her Mega Salamence at the Sky Pillar.
- Data for Latiosite exists within the code of Pokémon X and Y, despite the Mega Stone not being officially introduced until Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, allowing it to be transferred to and used in X and Y. It shares this trait with the Latiasite.
