The extremely popular Dark and Rock type Pok mon Tyranitar will be very useful when it comes to taking down these two powerful legendaries. Tyranitar and Mawile will also be appearing in raid battles to aid the capture of Latios and Latias. The legendaries will be available to capture for the players until June 5.
Here s how the post from the developers say about Latias and Latios.
“Drawn to compassionate spirits, the Eon Pok mon Latias and Latios are known for being highly intelligent, and are able to communicate telepathically with humans. They are also stealthy and extremely fast in flight with Latias able to use its down to refract light to make itself invisible and Latios able to overtake jet planes. Make sure you encounter these special and elusive Pok mon while they roam during this limited time!”
Though it is a surprise that Latios and Latias have been introduced in the game now, people have expected them ever since dataminers had dug out the details back in October of last year.
