    Additional Info: Latios is exclusive to Omega Ruby, but via the Eon Ticket (event item) will be obtainable in Alpha Sapphire. You can fly on the back of Latios and Latias in the overworld to find certain pokemon, including some Legendary Pokemon.

    Mega Latios and Mega Latias existed in the X/Y ROMs but were not officially released - I suspect that Game Freak decided to save them for OR/AS instead.

    Yeah, a hacker found these two in X and Y quite a while ago. It's nice to finally see them officially revealed. :)
  5. I heard on Youtube that someone speculated that a possible reason why Mega Latios & Mega Latias look almost exactly the same is because of the new flying through Hoenn feature since that way Game Freak could use one less sprite (or whatever the proper term is).

    I'm smart enough to know to take any speculations with a grain of salt, and normally I wouldn't post something like this here; however, when you take into account all of the features OR/AS has already, and how these games have a limited memory size, this actually makes a lot of sense

    To be fair they /are/ the same blasted species, just male/female. Not too surprising they lose dimorphism upon mega evolution.
  7. Both latias and latios looked the same when they mega evolve right? Did anyone caught on that than me?!

    Not exactly the same - there are subtle differences in size, eye color and shape. But yes, they are very similar - which makes sense as they are technically the male and female forms of the same species, akin to the nidos or Volbeat/Illumise.
  9. I know right, I don't even know if it's latias or latios!

    In Mega form, Latios has red eyes and is somewhat larger. Latias has yellow eyes and is somewhat smaller. That's pretty much the easiest way to tell them apart.
