Latias Raid Boss

Latias Pokemon GO Raid

Latias is a level 5 Legendary Raid boss in Pokemon GO, with 45704 Raid Boss CP and Dragon and Psychic typing. Latias is the red colored female part of the Eon Duo, with max capture combat power as follows:

  • 1929 CP (no weather boost, lvl 20, 100% IV)
  • 2412 CP (Windy lvl 25, 100% IV)

A minimum of 4-5 players is required to defeat Latias, but we recommend 7 or more — it’s not an easy fight. Latias is countered in the same way as a Latios Raid Boss, but as it doesn’t have Solar Beam, Outrage is considered as it’s most dangerous move set.

Countering Latias is rather straightforward:

  • If it has Outrage, use Tyranitar exclusively
  • If it doesn’t have Outrage, use Rayquaza, Dragonite and Tyranitar
  • Toss in a Mewtwo whenever for good measure

Latias is not a difficult fight when there is enough trainers, but Latias has more Defense than Latios. This subtle change combined with a less threatening move pool, makes Latias slightly less dangerous, but the fight lasts longer.

Latias has access to the following moves:

  • Dragon Breath dragon (fast)
  • Zen Headbutt psychic (fast)
  • Psychic psychic (charge, 1 bar)
  • Outrage dragon (charge, 2 bar)
  • Thunder electric (charge, 1 bar)

With that being said, you can basically use the same setup for every Latias raid:

  • vs Outrage: Tyarnitar > Tyranitar some more > Mewtwo > Scizor > Gardevoir > Dragonite > Rayquaza
  • vs non-Outrage: Rayquaza > Dragonite > Tyranitar > Mewtwo  > Latias / Latios > Gengar > Scizor > Gardevoir

And then follow it up with anything you have sitting in your storage and hasn’t been used recently. Be careful using Dragon types to counter a Latias with Dragon Breath / Outrage, don’t use Gengar against a Zen Headbutt / Psychic moveset, and exercise caution when / if  using Articuno against a Thunder Latias. Latias’ moves are boosted during Windy weather, with the exception of Thunder which is boosted during Rainy weather.
