A tip for hardcore trainers: If the first Pokémon in your party has the Synchronise Ability (such as Abra or Ralts), there’s a 100% chance (instead of 50%) that Latios/Latias’s nature will be the same as that Pokémon’s.

On this island, Latias and Latios guard the secret to Mega Evolution according to Steven, but something’s off… Go north and along the forest path; suddenly, something appears… "Those whose memories fade seek to carve them in their hearts…"

Just ahead from there, you’ll find Latios/Latias. Suddenly, some Team Magma/Aqua people run up to you. You’ll end up engaging in a Multi Battle to determine who gets the Lati’s Mega Stone, it seems. It’s easy nonetheless.

Steven will then heal your Pokémon and Latios/Latias – whichever one you were protecting – will join your team! You’ll have to send a Pokémon back to your PC if your party is full, though.

Gift Pokémon

Latios and Latias are both beasts; use them well and few trainers will trip you up.

Alpha Sapphire

Pokémon Received Type Ability

Latios will also come bearing Latiosite and Latias some Latiasite . This complements both greatly, turning each to very powerful Pokémon, Latios being the powerhouse nearly within the top 1% of all Special Attackers and Latias around the top 2%-3%. Very potent.

In turn, Steven will hand you the Mega Bracelet , which will allow you to finally utilize Mega Evolution – not only for your Lati Pokémon but also for any Pokémon you’ve gotten the Mega Stone with thus far (which will likely consist of Alakazam, Mawile, Manectric, and Aggron).

After this, you and Steven will leave on Latias/Latios…
