Latias is one of the many legendary Pokémon you can add to your roster. It’s a Pokémon you can typically only capture by defeating at a five-star raid. You’ll need a few friends with you to take it down, and when you do, you’ll want to figure out the best moveset available to use in PvP and PvE. You’ll have a few options to pick from, but there is a superior choice.

Latias is a Dragon and Psychic-type Pokémon. It’s going to be weak to Bug, Dark, Dragon, Fairy, Ghost, and Ice-type moves, but it’s resistant to Electric, Fighting, Fire, Grass, Psychic, and Water-type attacks. For PvP, it has a maximum CP of 3,510, an attack of 192, a defense of 206, and a stamina of 162. For PvE, it has an attack of 228, a defense of 246, and a stamina of 190.

Here are all of the moves Latias can learn.

Fast moves

  • Dragon breath (Dragon-type) – 4 damage and 3 energy (4 damage per turn)
  • Zen Headbutt (Psychic-type) – 8 damage and 2 energy (2.6 damage per turn)

Charged moves

  • Outrage (Dragon-type) – 110 damage and 60 energy
  • Psychic (Psychic-type) – 90 damage and 55 energy (10% chance to lower the opponent’s defense by one rank)
  • Thunder (Electric-type) – 100 damage and 60 energy

Latias does not have too many choices in each category, and of the options, they’re pretty good. For the fast move, you want to go with dragon breath. It’s going to provide Latias with more energy each time you use it, and it does even more damage than zen headbutt.

You have the same, good problem here where Latias does not have a wide selection for the charged moves, but the options are good. You want to go with outrage and psychic. These are a pretty solid option, giving Latias plenty of damage whenever it has enough energy to perform a charged attack. Outrage and psychic does some heavy damage, and they don’t cost too much energy whenever you want to use them.

Overall, Latias is a decent option when you’re thinking of using a legendary Pokémon for the Master League. While Latias is not as good as Latios, it’s an option for you to use in five-star raids. Make sure it learns dragon breath for its fast move, and then outrage and psychic for its charged attacks.
