    Which of the two roaming Pokemon do you prefer?

    I have a slight bias against Latios, as he's the only one of the two that I have, and no matter what game I choose, I always end up with him.

    So, Latias.

    I prefer Latios. Blue is a much cooler color than red, and I can't resist his delicious STAB Draco Meteor, especially when boosted by Choice Specs or Soul Dew. He also has a better Special Attack and still monstrous Special Defense when he has a Soul Dew. However, we can't use Soul Dew Lati@s in OU, so he has to resort to Life Orb or Choice Specs.

    I still like Latias, though, and I use her in my sand team. However, Latios is and will always be better.

    I used to think that. Until I constantly got Latios instead of Latias.

    I'm definitely Latios, but probs because I try to make sure all of my Pokemon are male.

    I used to be biased against female Pokemon, because I'm male, but now, I don't care, as long as it's cool.

    When I was younger I used to like Latios better because I was weirdly biased on genders and I like the colour blue more than red. However, since Sapphire has always been my Hoenn game, Latias has grew on me a lot ever since I started using her, so now I like Latias better. I also like Latias' design more - she looks similar but I like the friendly look that the designers gave her.

    Although I do like Latios too.

    Latios. I prefer offense over defense.

    I had a similar experience. When I first played with the gender thing I didn't know what they meant, so I didn't care. When I found out, i wanted all my pokemon to be male. After that period, I categorized which pokemon that looked like females and males. So if I saw a Butterfree, it would have to be female. Now I don't care. Anyways, overall Latios is better because its BLUE! btw blue is my favorite color...

    How difficult...

    I'd say Latios. I like blue, and Latios' massive firepower and STAB Draco Meteor is just amazing. But I like Latias, because she seems so much more durable. I can't say from a catching perspective, as I've caught both and like both equally. Competitive wise, I'm a set up sweeper kind of person, so Latias shines there. But I nearly always consider Latios when making teams. Such a hard choice...

    Latias. It's one of my favorite Pokemon of all times. I have always liked it better than Latios, though I like Latios quite a bit as well.

    I like Latias the most out of the duo, but mostly because it always seemed so elusive. I accidentally defeated the roaming Latias in Sapphire version so I had to trade for one a year later. I guess Latias seemed more special because I had to wait a while in order to finally get one, whereas I had at least three different Latios.

    Latios because:
    1. I prefer male Pokémon.
    2. I like the color blue more than red.
    3. Offense > Defense

    I like both equally as much, but if I have to choose I'd go with Latios.

    Latias is the first I chose, and I like Mist Ball.

    Latias. Just that she can survive 3 non STAB Blizzards. And sometimes even 2 STAB Blizzards.

    Latios. Every time I played Emerald I chose him even though I can get him on ruby.

    Latios, probably just for nostalgic reasons. Ruby is my favorite Pokemon game.
