Latios nature

When Latios greets you in dreamyard does it already have it's set stats or can I save later?

The stats are set when you actually engage in the battle. You can save, take the 1 step to begin the battle, catch him, check stats, reset, then repeat if you want. I've been doing that for my legendary pokemon.

Yes I can confirm this. It's like any other legendary you can reset for, its just the battle is initiated by taking a step rather than pressing A.

Speaking of which, I got a bold Latios, however its Sp.Attack and Speed were perfect, and its other stats were pretty high, so I kept it. Its served me well in the PWT but how reliable would it be for competitive?

It's not ideal, but it's not the worst nature. I think you could most likely use it competitively w/o many problems.

Looking at SpA and Spd for a Neutral Nature, you have max stats of 359 and 319 respectively. A positive nature grants 10%, so a boost would give 35 or 31 respectively. 31 is the max IV value, but assuming the IV for a benificial nature isn't 0, you came out a little behind.

That said, Bold is -Atk and +Def so you're not losing anything he uses, and you're gaining something he does. Competitively, I probably wouldn't use it. That said, Latios with Soul Dew is flat out banned and without is OU but rarely seen (last I played).

I'd say it's not ideal, but not likely to make or break your match either

For future reference, using a lead with Synchronize and your nature of choice (Modest/Timid) gives it a 50% chance to be the same nature as said lead. Makes legendary catching a lot less of a pain. I have Synchronize Abras in 19 natures now, I think.

Thank you for the input, but I assure you the first thing I did when I got to post game areas was to breed a small army of syncronize Muuna. I did have a Timid one at the front, but I am also exceptionally lazy and didn't want to reset constantly.

I probably won't use it super competitively anyway, and for the PWT it does its job well (Helping hander that can avoid Earthquake and snipe people with Dragon Pulse.)
