"| 17 | Latios | 73208 | 9.454% | 57284 | 9.153% |

First off, look at this amazing difference in usage between Latios and Latias in the recent OU stats! Latios is used almost three times as much as Latias, making her one of the lower used OU Pokemon, next to Dugtrio and Celebi. This shows that offence is definitely chosen over defense in this current meta, which is a shame because it leaves Latias out of the limelight. Anyways, on with the thread!"
I guess you meant "almost two times as much" here, I look stupid to point it out but whatever. Or maybe you're talking about the ranking and not the %.
In my opinion Latias is on paper better for support/CM/bulky offensive sets.
It's a great pokemon that just suffers from the likes of Genesect more than Latios because Latios is used as a hit and run pokemon, whereas Latias is supposed to stay on the field longer, hence Latias attracts Genesect (but Scarf Latias can be an insane lure).
Great thread by the way, pleasant, I learned alot, thank you.
