    I'd chose Latias. I like that more "carefree" nature. Though Latios was pretty cool in that ONE movie I will never remember the name too. Pokemon Heros, I think it was.

    Competetively, yes- Latios has a higher Sp. ATK stat. But, Latias with one or two Calm Mind Boosts- unless you have Pursuit or something dealing super effective damage to her defense stat, she'll never fall out of the sky. Especially with Recover.
    And her Sp. Atk stat is quite impressive afterwards.
    So, yeah. IMO, Latias. :3

    Latios. I'm more of an offensive player rather than defensive, even though Latias does admittedly pull off offense just as well.

      I don't know, because I like making my team even, 3 defensive, and 3 offensive. But, I can still choose on design, so Latios. But Latias is pretty awesome too.

        I've always liked Latios more, even being thoroughly disappointed when I found out that you can't catch him on Sapphire. I mean don't get me wrong they're both great, but Latios has better offensive numbers and he's blue, which is always a plus for me.

          Latias seems more caring and playful. Latios seems more serious and not as fun, which is why I like Latias better.
          I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
          Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
          I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
          But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
          So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

            Latias, because its a female and its red body and cute little eyes are very appealing not to mention a powerful pokemon to have on a team. Look at them eyes........................................................

              Hm.. I started my life with Pokèmon with Ruby, because I tend to favour a red colour over a blue one, and with the cover being as shiny red as it was, I chose Ruby. Even so, my favourite of the two legendaries of the games were Kyogre by a mile. Even though I haven't used the Pokèmon nearly as much as Groudon, I still like him better. Who doesn't like "underwater flying cows"?

              The same with Latios and Latias. I couldn't get Latias by my self, so I had to trade it with one of my friends, but I think Latias looks so much cuter than Latios. Therefore my favourite is Latias!

                Latios all the way. I really prefer how he looks and blue is one of my favourite colours, so what is there not to like; he is a blue dragon!

                  Latias was a much prettier colour.

                      I never actually use either of those, so my choice is mainly by design, in which case I pick Latios, just because I like blue more

                      I adore Latias. She's one of my top three favorite Pokemon. In Sapphire, I ran into her while surfing. I loved her cute design and rarity so I tracked her and caught her within an hour. I liked her portrayal in Pokemon Heroes too, especially her cute cries and her powers. While I admit Latios is pretty cool and offensively better, Latias is very special to me.

                      Latie. She's so cute :D
                      And beside cuteness she's pretty useful in competitive battling too.

                        I'm just gonna post again, as Diversion this time.

                        Latios of course, because he's just better than Latias, but they're both good.
                        But Latios is better in my opinion. Despite him being blue and Latias being red, even though I like red better....
