Pokémon Go is bringing back Latias and Latios this weekend

The legendary Eon Duo will return to Pokémon Go raids for a four-day weekend. Starting this Friday, June 12, 2020 at 8 a.m. local time, the legendary Dragon and psychic types Latias and Latios will return to Five Star Raids. Players will have until 10 p.m. Monday June 15 to challenge these two before they disappear from the raids again. Both have the potential to be brilliant and, as a Dragon-type Pokémon, they make good counters against the newest Legendary Raid Pokémon, Zekrom. Introduced for the first time in the Hoenn region of Gen III, Latias and Latios are a powerful pair extremely intelligent and able to communicate by telepathy with Pokémon trainers.

The pair is weak against Bug, Ghost, Ice, Dragon, Dark and Fairy types, so prepare your team with dragons like Rayquaza, Salamence and Dragonite, Fairy types like Gardevoir and Togekiss, or Ice types like Mamoswine. You can even double with the Ghost and Dragon type Giratina to hit very hard. Make sure you stock up on remote raid passes and you can challenge any raid on the map.
