Latias is a dual type Legendary Pokemon (Dragon and Psychic). Latias cannot be caught in Pokemon FireRed, however you can honestly trade him from games like Sapphire, Ruby, and Emerald. If you do not have these games, and you do not know anyone who could exchange with you, you can only get Latias by using cheat codes.
Method 1 of 2: Swapping Latias
Step 1. Reasons for the exchange
The only way to honestly get Latias in FireRed is to trade him from Sapphire, Ruby, or Emerald. Latias cannot be caught in the world of FireRed unless you enter a cheat using a Codebreaker cheat system or an emulator.
Step 2. Find a person who is ready to barter Latias for you or catch him yourself in another game
In the games Sapphire and Emerald, it is the easiest to catch. As far as Ruby is concerned, you will need a ticket that is no longer available.
- To catch Latias in Sapphire or Emerald, you first need to defeat the Elite Four. After defeating the Elite Four, you will have to find Latias, which can take a lot of time, since he appears on the map in a random order. Once you track Latias down, use the Masterball to capture him, or lower his health to a minimum and use Ultraball. Check out the related articles for detailed instructions on capturing Latias in Sapphire and Emerald.
- If you are going to trade Latias with another person, you will have to offer something equally rare in return. Legendary Pokémon like Rayquaza, Groudon, Kyogre, Deoxis and Mew are ideal for trading. You can also offer to trade a whole team of well-trained Pokémon for one Latias.
Step 3. Defeat the Elite Four at FireRed
Before you can trade Pokémon from Sapphire, Ruby, or Emerald, you'll need to defeat the Elite Four at FireRed. After defeating them, you must also get Mt Ember Ruby, Ruin Valley Sapphire and Five Island Meadow Sapphire.
Step 4. Connect both games
To trade between games, you need two Gameboy Advance (GBA) consoles. You will not be able to use Nintendo DS consoles to trade.
You can connect two GBA devices using a GBA Link cable or GBA Wireless for each console
Step 5. Go to the Pokémon Center in both games
To begin the exchange, talk to the person to the right of the entrance to the Pokémon Center.
