Thoughts on Mega Latios

Mega Latios has the higher attack stat out of Latios and Latias which means in theory it should hit harder, although less bulky than Latias

The Luster Purge legacy charge move provides Latios with another option to a somewhat small moveset and could combine well with the spammy Dragon Claw

Like Latias, Latios isnt the strongest mega that will be in Pokemon GO but will be an excellent choice for Dragon and Psychic coverage

How many Mega Latios will you be raiding?!
