Thoughts on Mega Latias

This is the first time a legendary mega has been released in Pokemon GO

Mega Latias has some solid fast moves but most of its charged moves are quite expensive to use

The introduction of its legacy move gives it a 4th charge move option

Whilst it wont be the greatest mega to grace Pokemon GO it is a solid option when looking for some Dragon/Psychic coverage
