Everything you need to know about the legendary Latias in Pokémon Go. 

Latias, the female counterpart to Latios, can be added to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.

Everything we know about Latias

Latios - the other member of he Eon Duo.

The first appearance of Latias in Pokémon Go was in April 2018; at this time, it was appearing in raids located in Europe and Asia. In May 2018, it switched locations with Latios, becoming available, via raid battles, in Africa and the Americas for a month.

Players have also been able to obtain Latias throughout special raid events and research task breakthroughs.

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire are the first mainline Pokémon games that Latias appeared in. In Sapphire, you'll have the chance to encounter Latias as it roams Hoenn after you defeat the Elite Four. In Ruby, however, you'd have to acquire the Eon Ticket from either a distribution event or through the special Eon Ticket e-Card for the e-Reader.

Latias is a member of the Eon Duo, alongside Latias and together they share the category of Eon Pokémon. These two legendary Pokémon are believed to draw inspiration from the philosophy of yin and yang.
