Latios Raid Boss

Latios Pokemon GO Raid

Latios is a level 5 Legendary Raid boss in Pokemon GO, with 52220 Raid Boss CP and Dragon and Psychic typing. Latios is the blue colored part of the Eon Duo. Latios’ max capture combat power is as follows:

  • 2178 CP (no weather boost, lvl 20, 100% IV)
  • 2723 CP (Windy weather, lvl 25, 100% IV)

We recommend 4 – 5 players for a solid Latios raiding experience. Latios has a number of easily exploitable weaknesses, but Latios counters fall into two categories: Latios counters vs Solar Beam (non-Tyranitar) and Latios counters vs Dragon Claw (non-Dragons).

Latios is one of the more difficult fights we have ever had to write a guide about. With its dual Dragon and Psychic typing, it seemed really simple to pick counters initially, right? No, not really, as its Attack stat is devastating, its move pool is complex and your counter selection will heavily depend on the opposing Latios’ moves.

Latios has access to the following moves:

  • Dragon Breath dragon (fast)
  • Zen Headbutt psychic (fast)
  • Psychic psychic (charge, 1 bar)
  • Dragon Claw dragon (charge, 3 bar)
  • Solar Beam grass (charge, 1 bar)

The obvious choice is always to pack a Rayquaza, a Dragonite, another Latios and whatever else you have that deals a lot of DPS. Be careful not to bring a Tyranitar to a Solar Beam Latios fight, and keep in mind that Dragon type counters will take super-effective damage if the opposing Latios has Dragon Breath and/or Dragon Claw.
