September's Legendary Pokemon: Get Latios & Latias

Head to participating Best Buy stores by September 29th to get a Latios or Latias in your Pokemon Sun & Moon and Ultra Sun & Moon games.

The Pokemon Company spent the majority of this year distributing legendary Pokemon through various means to owners of Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon and Pokemon Sun & MoonThis month's legendary duo is Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire's dragon/psychic Pokemon Latios and Latias.

From September 2 to 29, trainers can visit local participating Best Buy stores to receive a code that can be redeemed in-game. Latias will be available to Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Sun players, while Latios can be downloaded to Pokemon Ultra Moon and Pokemon Moon games.

Depending on which game you have, the level and items of your Latios or Latias will differ. Here are the stats for each type of Pokemon.

Pokemon Ultra Sun Latias
  • Level: 100   
  • Ability: Levitate
  • Held Item: Gold Bottle Cap
  • Moves: Mist Ball, Psychic, Draco Meteor, Tailwind
Pokemon Sun Latias
  • Level: 60
  • Ability: Levitate
  • Moves: Mist Ball, Dragon Pulse, Psycho Shift, Wish
Pokemon Ultra Moon Latios
  • Level: 100

  • Moves: Luster Purge, Psychic, Draco Meteor, Tailwind
Pokemon Moon Latios
  • Level: 60

The Gold Bottle Cap item that comes with the Ultra versions of the games is a very valuable item, as it can be traded in to maximize all of a Pokemon's IV (Individual Values) -- an incredibly useful feature for competitive players.

Next months legendary distribution will give trainers the chance to get Reshiram or Zekrom, with Ho-Oh and Lugia following in November.

With Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu and Lets Go Eevee on the horizon, players have a limited time to get all the legendary monsters they can. Gamefreak and The Pokemon Company have not confirmed if Pokemon Bank will be compatible with the new games.
