    Default Latios or Latias?

    Which of the two roaming Pokemon do you prefer?

    I have a slight bias against Latios, as he's the only one of the two that I have, and no matter what game I choose, I always end up with him.

    So, Latias.

    I prefer Latios. Blue is a much cooler color than red, and I can't resist his delicious STAB Draco Meteor, especially when boosted by Choice Specs or Soul Dew. He also has a better Special Attack and still monstrous Special Defense when he has a Soul Dew. However, we can't use Soul Dew Lati@s in OU, so he has to resort to Life Orb or Choice Specs.

    I still like Latias, though, and I use her in my sand team. However, Latios is and will always be better.

    I used to think that. Until I constantly got Latios instead of Latias.

    I'm definitely Latios, but probs because I try to make sure all of my Pokemon are male.


    I'm not on much anymore...

    I used to be biased against female Pokemon, because I'm male, but now, I don't care, as long as it's cool.

    Latios due to Pokémon Heroes

    When I was younger I used to like Latios better because I was weirdly biased on genders and I like the colour blue more than red. However, since Sapphire has always been my Hoenn game, Latias has grew on me a lot ever since I started using her, so now I like Latias better. I also like Latias' design more - she looks similar but I like the friendly look that the designers gave her.

    Latios. I prefer offense over defense.

    I had a similar experience. When I first played with the gender thing I didn't know what they meant, so I didn't care. When I found out, i wanted all my pokemon to be male. After that period, I categorized which pokemon that looked like females and males. So if I saw a Butterfree, it would have to be female. Now I don't care. Anyways, overall Latios is better because its BLUE! btw blue is my favorite color...

    How difficult...

    I'd say Latios. I like blue, and Latios' massive firepower and STAB Draco Meteor is just amazing. But I like Latias, because she seems so much more durable. I can't say from a catching perspective, as I've caught both and like both equally. Competitive wise, I'm a set up sweeper kind of person, so Latias shines there. But I nearly always consider Latios when making teams. Such a hard choice...

    Latias. It's one of my favorite Pokemon of all times. I have always liked it better than Latios, though I like Latios quite a bit as well.

    I like Latias the most out of the duo, but mostly because it always seemed so elusive. I accidentally defeated the roaming Latias in Sapphire version so I had to trade for one a year later. I guess Latias seemed more special because I had to wait a while in order to finally get one, whereas I had at least three different Latios.

    Latios because:
    1. I prefer male Pokémon.
    2. I like the color blue more than red.
    3. Offense > Defense
    I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

    I like both equally as much, but if I have to choose I'd go with Latios.

    Latias is the first I chose, and I like Mist Ball.

    Latias. Just that she can survive 3 non STAB Blizzards. And sometimes even 2 STAB Blizzards.

    Latios. Every time I played Emerald I chose him even though I can get him on ruby.

    Latios, probably just for nostalgic reasons. Ruby is my favorite Pokemon game.

    Latios because with Dragon and Psychic being special in Gen. 3, it mows down everything in it's path.

    I love them both, but Latios is my favorite Pokemon. It has a great design, and is a really good Pokemon.
