Catching Latios or Latias without using masterball! hint for Pokemon Emerald


Catching Latios or Latias without using masterball!

First, catch a Pokemon that uses Arena Trap or Shadow Tag. I used Wobbuffet. Your mother will let you choose between red and blue. Blue is Latios and Red is Latias. The one you chose will appear ONLY in the patch near the Safari Zone OR near the surfing area of New Mauville. It is the only area where you can see one of them. Brind lots of ultraballs and timerballs. First, use the ultra so the timer will have the power. Enjoy using the Masterball on ANY pokemon.

Rate this please.

i found mine in pacifidlog -.- latios or latias just shows any where. when you found one and it flee, check your pokedex and see the area. when you go to that area check your pokedex again. I changes whenever you go to his/her area. They do not have a decent place to stay on. So do not say that they just show on here, here, here, there, there, there. just prevent it's escape or use a masterball when you see one. In my pokemon emerald game i just use ultra in rayquaza and master ball on these eons. They're one of my favorite pokemons.
Also got mew

With an event or gameshark you can get the other lati, and there are 10 routes where they can appear, and not certain patches. They also change place when you fly or move from route (and i mean to ANY of the other routes). Whatever.

Well... After about one week on playing my friends ruby,(I know it's emerald but its the same) I had used mean look, false swipe, and hypnosis, and threw 10-20 ultra balls, and I caught it

Added 2nd Jan 2013, ID #234664

Or, you could check the pokedex, every time you use fly, they move. try to catch them that way. then make sure they can't get away by using stun spore or something else with the same effect. Damage, capture.

you can ultraballs just make sure its hp low and attack and defense low make it sleep or paralized stock many ultraballs before you challenge it save it first i tried this way in other legendary but it work

Added 24th Oct 2012, ID #200508

i definetily reccomend a master ball

Added 6th Oct 2012, ID #192441

just be sure that a pokemon with you with mean look has higher speed than Latios or Latias because it flies right away after appearing. but with Wobuffet of any level, latios or latias cant fly away because of its shadow tag ability. also never use fly to its location.

I used Mean Look on Latias with Crobat, then used every ball i had(Reg.,Ultra,Great,Pre.,Timer,Repeat) until Crobat fainted. Then I used Wobbufett and used ultra and timer balls. I caught mine with a timer ball.

i catch latias near the mauville city with dive ball!!!

Added 10th Jan 2012, ID #104549

OMG! THEY JUST ROAM ANYWHERE! JUST USE A POKEMON LVL 39 and use max repel!!! it actually works!!!! if u dont want to waste time with a lvl 39, just get a pokemon on a high level with abilites or moves like arenatrap, mean look, block, or shadowtag(meanlook and block are pokemon moves. the other two are abilities) then use max repel with it and just use an acro bike and jump in one place. it might take time but i found mines using that way.i prefer latios to latias cuz latios has stronger moves than latias.

its at vitory road.

Added 5th Dec 2011, ID #92907

hophip is rare at l.v.100 so you should use a masterball to catch him.

Added 5th Dec 2011, ID #92906

catch a hophip l.v.100 and you will get 9999 master balls.

Added 5th Dec 2011, ID #92903

save your masterball. use a pokeball.

Added 5th Dec 2011, ID #92900

just use master ball

Added 28th Oct 2011, ID #83654

if your going to find latios or latias, just make sure you use max repel first, the max repel will repel every pokemon except for latios or latias. thats how i find them.

Added 17th Oct 2011, ID #81142

First you need an Acro Bike(get it from Rydel's bike shop in Mauville City. Then, get a pokemon that has Arena trap, Shadow tag or Mean look. After That, find a spot that is near a building or the end of the route(for me best is Route 110 near the Cycling Road). Now, use Max Repel to repel the weak pokemon and only Latias/Latios will appear. while in the grass use your bike and hold B. if Latios/Latias doesn't appear within 2 minutes, go in the Cycling road(the building) and go out. And bring many cheap balls then bring about 5-10 Timer Balls. It will save you time.

i catch latios in mosdeep city

Added 30th Aug 2011, ID #71334

After you beat the PL you will be at ur house and then go downstairs and your mother will ask you what color the pokemon on TV was.If you say red,you will be able to catch latias,if you say blue you can catch latios.( You CAN NOT catch the other lati without using a cheat)Once you see the latias/latios for the first time you can track it on your pokedex. it can be anywhere do not try to fly to that area it will only move.(it moves when you use fly,enter/exit a building or leave you current route.( if you on route 110 and you move to route 111 it will move)You need a pokemon with arena trap or something else that prevents it from running also need a lot of pokeballs( like 50) and 2-5 timer balls.Save before you try to catch it if it faints you cant catch it EVER.So once you find it start throwing poke balls at it and use false swipe once you run out of poke balls and start throwing timerballs at it and if you battled for a long time you should be able to catch it.(note: you can get timer balls in rustboro) this also works on Kyogere and Groudon( not sure about any others though)

I found Latias on my previous copy of Pokemon emerald, and I am currently searching for Latios.
I found Latias outside pacificlog and that's where I found my first Latios.

Master ball is ready all I have to do is FIND the pokemon first... > <

It appears pretty much anywhere,lol.
i just used my crobat lv 93 with meanlook,
but still that is a good idea u have.

Added 9th Jul 2010, ID #3809

A easier way is to get a ZUBAT, a GOLBAT or a CROBAT and get it to use MEAN LOOK, it won't escape, so you can weacken it with BITE or CRUNCH.I would recommend FALSE SWIPE because it leaves the target POKEMON on it's last HEALTH POINT (HP) then keep throwing POKEBALLS, ULTRA BALLS would be the best, but you can just experiment!
