PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Breath is preferred over Zen Headbutt for yielding higher cycle DPS and being much more dodge-friendly.
  • Outrage is the preferred charge move. It partially makes up for Latias's lower Atk compared to Latios.
  • Psychic has synergy with Zen Headbutt and makes Latias a somewhat tanky Psychic attacker.
  • Thunder is sub-par move. TM this move.

PVE Overview

Latias along with her twin Latios are not the powerhouse legendaries of this generation, and of the two Latias gets the short end of the stick. Having the inverse of Latios's Atk and Def stat means she's bulky and underpowered. She's built to take down gyms as a Dragon or Psychic-type sweeper but still can't compete with more common Pokemon like Dragonite or Espeon.

In the main series, Latias was given access to a Mega Evolution that will help patch up her weaknesses in generation 6, but when/if/how this is released is still a mystery.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Breath+Outrage and Thunder

A PVP staple, Dragon Breath has 4 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3 EPT (Energy Per Turn), meaning it's definitely Latias' best quick-move. Outrage (110 Power/60 Energy) is a good attack in PVP, with a higher damage-per-energy ratio than the famed Dragon Claw. However, it takes nearly twice as long to charge, meaning it functions best as a closer move while the later is best for shield-shredding. Thunder (100 Power/60 Energy) is weaker than Outrage, especially when STAB is taken into consideration, but it's Latias' only coverage option since Psychic (100 Power/70 Energy) is not a very good move in PVP and really should not be used unless you have genuine need to fill a very specific niche. Thunder allows Latias to hit many Pokemon in the tier for at least neutral damage while punishing anything weak to Electric particularly hard.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Latias is outright outclassed in the Great League. Dragons such as Altaria, Dragonite and Dragonair rule this tier, leaving very little room for this jet-dragon-girl. In fact, despite having higher bulk and access to Outrage, which is actually a stronger attack than Dragon Claw in terms of damage-per-energy despite being frequently overlooked, Latias cannot even beat her brother, Latios, in a one-on-one fight without shields. It's not all bad for poor Latias though; she is a fairly bulky dragon that can operate well in the niche that this brings. The problem is she really needs a bit of shield-usage to do anything meaningful, and even then other Pokemon tend to do the same jobs better.

Ultra League: 3 / 5

In the Ultra League, Latias actually pulls ahead of her brother a bit in terms of general viability. While Latios is considered a great opener in the vein of Dragonite due to its wonderful combination of Dragon Breath and Dragon Claw, Latias makes use of Outrage and Thunder to deal solid damage and act as a closer despite her lower attack stat. The problem with Latias is the fact that she really doesn't have many good matchups against the  top-tier Pokemon of the tier. Cresselia, Dragonite, Lucario, Giratina-O can defeat her in a 1x1 match just to name a few. According to PvPoke's simulators, she can just barely score a win against Giratina-Altered if it doesn't have any shields, but that's not exactly reason enough to justify her use on a team. Her advantage tends to come in with a bit of shield investment and in neutral matchups where she can use her good moveset and high bulk to score a win, but in reality her niche in the tier is best described as wide yet not very deep.

Master League : 3.5 / 5

Latias' performance in the Master League is very similar to what it was in the Ultra League. The difference is the fact that its niche deepens a bit against some higher threats. Latias has winning matchups against Kyogre, Machamp, and Heatran. She can also take down Giratina-A, and puts a large dent in Lugia before going down. Again, she needs some shields to be truly effective, but she's got many good neutral matchups and is a decent closer. However, the same problem of the Ultra League persists; she's a good Pokemon with a fairly wide niche, but if you're considering using her for anything too specific, you can probably find another Pokemon who's better at filling that niche. Latias can serve you well, just be sure to weigh her value a bit before such an expensive investment.
