Strategy Using Latios

Latios is quite a strong pokemon due to it having a fair spread of stats, with its defense being the only one slightly below average. It has diverse movepool too which allows it to learn many moves to support those awesome special stats.
If you want, you could put Calm mind on there somewhere, just to give a boost to its already high special stats. Anyways, as a pokemon, its been given a decent type combination, and doesn't have the 4x weakness to ice that a majority of Dragon pokemon do.
Although Dragon claw, Psychic, Thunderbolt and Ice beam can deal considerable damage to most pokemon. Both Dragon claw and Psychic get STAB making them dangerous moves to go up against. Since most pokemon that learn Ice beam are water pokemon, Thunderbolt takes care of them.
If you don't want Soul dew on Latios, replace it with either a Petaya berry or Salac berry. Max out EV's into Special attack and speed to get those extra stat boosts that is useful for Latios, especially with this moveset.
Latios is flawed by one thing, its classification of a legendary, and with such a title, its become considered uber and overused. With high specials, attack this pokemon using Physical attacks as its defense is the lowest of the two defense stats.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack & Speed for Latios with any remaining in Special Defense

Strategy Against Latios

Latios's Defenses are both high but it's Physical Defense is lower so attack with a volley of Physical Attacks or Dark, Dragon or Ice Attacks and it'll be gone in no time
