    Unlike Ruby & Sapphire, Emerald let you pick which Lati roams around Hoenn (by letting you select either "red" or "blue" after watching a report on TV).

    So: For those of you who've played Emerald, which did you choose as your roaming legendary - Latias or Latios?

    I've played through Emerald a few times, but I chose Latias during my first playthrough. This was before I got Sapphire, so I didn't have a Latias at the time and I'd already caught Latios on Ruby.

    Latios mostly because i prefer blue over red.

    In Emerald I picked Latios cuz I had a spare Latias from Sapphire already, so Latios was what I needed for Dex purposes hee hee. I liked how we had the freedom to select which Legendary Eon Pokemon we could find roaming Hoenn in Emerald, unlike in Ruby and Sapphire. ^^

    I went with Latias by picking red when I saw the news report. I ended up catching Latios in Emerald as well at Southern Island, so I didn't miss out on anything.

    Same for me. Prefer the colour blue so picked accordingly.

    I'm a fan of both Latios and Latias, but on Emerald version I selected "blue" so that Latios would become the roaming Pokemon.

    Having already played through Ruby and caught Latios, I picked Latias in my first Emerald playthrough. When I replayed Emerald recently, however, I chose Latios because I like the colour blue much better than red and because I just love Latios' Generation III sprite.

    I chose Latios for for dex completion tbh. Latias was already available in Sapphire, which I still owned at the time.

    Here's what I chose during my other Emerald playthroughs (on my spare Emerald cartridge):

    Second: Picked Latios since I wanted to raise one for the Battle Frontier on my main Emerald. Also, I think I'd transferred my Ruby Latios to Gen 4 by then, so I no longer had one on my Gen 3 games.
    Third: Picked Latias for similar reasons as above - I wanted one for the Battle Frontier on my main game, and I'd sent my main Emerald's Latias to Platinum years earlier.

    I tend to pick Latias because I prefer her sprite, although I honestly don't really have a preference. They both appeal to me whenever I play Emerald.

    I like Latias and Latios, because they are adorable and have versatile movepools. But I selected Latias since I prefer her stats.

    I would have went for Latios because I liked its higher base Special Attack stat compared to Latias. Not really as much of a fan of Latias's base stat arrangements as Latios could just hit harder.

    If I remember right, Latias has higher Defense and Special Defense than Latios, which is partially why I'd much rather use a Latios in R/S/E since I prefer high Special Attack.

    I picked Latias because when they asked what color, I preferred red over blue, but I had no idea that it would influence what Pokémon would end up being in the game. I'm not sure which I would pick now, to be honest- I feel about the same on them both. Perhaps I'd choose Latias again just because it was what I liked more as a kid.

    I chose Latios because even though I'm a female, the fact that Latias nearly broke my eardrums with her super high pitched voice in the fifth movie didn't improve my opinion of her.

    I would have chosen Latias but it just happens that I got a used copy and didn't want to restart it. The previous owner already chose Latios but didn't go capture it.

    Speaking of Latias's voice, I just realized that her in-game cry is simply a high-pitched version of Latios's cry. I think I prefer Latias's cry, though.

    Latias's sprite in RSE looks kinda derpy to me. I prefer her over Latios, but I think Latios's sprite looks better and more serious.

    Latias. Guess I like it’s design better. Also prefer defensive Pokémon.

    Latios was my choice since I needed one for Sapphire's Dex. It also looks better than Latias though she's good in her own way.
