Here it is:
Latios@Soul Dew
Modest Nature
EV's: 250 S.Attk, 250 Speed, 10 HP
Luster Purge(I like it over Psychic...)
Dragon Claw
Calm Mind
T-Bolt

Its at level 100 and I would appreciate any suggestions for improvements, and I am using it as a Special Sweeper.

Or Calm Mind + Recover + Ice Beam + Thunderbolt

Somebody

Psychic
Dragon Claw
Calm Mind
Recover

140 HP/156 Sp.A/212 Speed would have been a better spread imo but apparently you've already ev trained it. Unless, of course, you cloned it before ev training it.

Psychic
T-bolt
Icebeam
Surf

Train your Latios accordingly. He doed not need stat boosters because combined with souldew he's insanely strong. With set you can take on any pokemon because not one pokemon resists ALL of these moves.

Soul Dew doesn't work in the Frontier if it's for that.

Blissey laughs without Calm Mind.

Try:
Psychic/Luster Purge
Dragon Claw
Recover
Calm Mind/T-bolt (ice is only good for dragons, grass, and flying, and since many ice-attackers are part water, t-bolt does double damage. if you go up against a Blissey, then you'll either have to switch, or Psychic/Luster Purge it to death while using recover to get rid of the Seismic Toss it's bound to have)

Psychic is a crappy attack type TBH.

It's pointless to have Ice Beam when you can have STAB Dragon Claw.

Just go with:

Dragon Claw
Thunderbolt
Calm Mind
Recover

Hyper Beam

Luster Purge
Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Hyper Beam

Uh, no.

It's stupid to teach Latios physical Attack moves.

Hyper Beam is a shite attack anyway.

lol no.

Horn Drill's set. if you want to use Ice Beam instead of Dragon Claw, though, it's an option.

*coughShedninjacough*

Calm Mind and Recover are a must imo.

yes they are. CM and recover should be on every lati@s set.

shedinja walls kyogre and lati@s completely. there's nothing you can do about this without resorting to physical attacks, and it's just not worth it, for either of them.

if you're that obsessed with nothing resisting your attacks, you can use Dragon Claw and Surf, since the only thing that resists both is Shedinja. flamethrower would be better than surf, but latios doesn't learn it.

DC/TB is better, though.

Fine, but he's missing out on a very good moveset. If any of you only knew how good the moveset works for me...

that's because you're using it in-game, where anything can work.

latios's attack: 90
latios's SAtk: 130

at level 100, its SAtk will generally be at least 80 higher than its attack, assuming a neutral nature. physical attacks are therefore a waste on it.

and hyper beam is bad for its own reasons, having to do with being weaker than body slam and not being super-effective on anything.
