I don't know if this is good enough detail but you can practically catch him everywhere.

First finish the game. Then you find yourself back at home. Then when you come out of the room, you'll see the news, that there is a Pokemon wandering all over the hoen region. Then go to the third gym, the electric type. Take the right turn and use surf to get to the other side. Then keep wandering there.(you need more patience). Then, a latios will appear, I don't think you can catch him right away because, he'll flee.after the first encounter, see the pokedex, you can find that his area is moving from time to time. Go catch a Pokemon with mean look. Then battle him again.(find him with pokedex). First move of the battle should be mean look. So that he can't flee. Battle him and catch him. That's all. Gud luck.

In Pokemon Shappire you can only catch Latias and this is how: after defeating the Elite 4 you will be at home. When you come out, you will receive a message saying there's a Pokemon wandering all over Hoen. From there forward is a matter of luck. She can be everywhere do this: keep switching between 2 areas (cause everytime you zone out she changes his location). Then, if you find her, she will always run away, so I advice you to use a Pokemon with Mean Look, to prevent her from doing that. If you really meant Latios, then you can only trade him from someone with Pokemon Ruby.

Hope I helped

There really isn't a certain place to catch Latios. If you've seen Latios once, it will put him into your pokedex. When it's in there, look to where Latios is, follow him without flying, and if you run to long, he will go to a different place. When you find him, use your masterball if not already used.

He appears at random places in the wild. Mostly in grass. And every time you go into a building cave or whatever, he switches to a different spot. Get a wobbufet and teach it block so latias can't run!!!

In order to catch the legendary Pokemon Latios, you first need to go into the desert north of Maulville City and catch the Pokemon called Trapinch. The reason why you want to catch a Trapinch is because of Trapinch's ability which is called Arena Trap. Arena Trap is a very useful ability, and I recommend using it on any legendary Pokemon that attempts to run away from you during battle. What Arena Trap does basically, is makes it impossible for a Pokemon to run from battle, so this means that Latios will not be able to run away from you like he is fond of doing. Now you need to hurt Latios until you have weakened him enough so that his health is in the red zone. When his health reaches red, use a move like Hypnosis, or Yawn so that you can put him to sleep, then catch him.

Hope this helps.
