Caught myself my first 100% Latias yesterday. I know she’s a pretty weak Pokémon when compared to other legendarys, but I mean 100%. Already have good dragons, and a solid psychic team easily capable of Machamp solos. Stardust isn’t really too much of an issue, and I am not considering using any rare candies on her. Is she worth the stardust to power up?

I've maxed out my 98% Latias because I've caught 53/65 (~82%!), some of them even with pinap on double candy. It literally screamed to me: "Look, some nice 250+ candies you've got the by catching and transfering only! I don't even need rare candies! You have 2 fucking million stardust! I know you want me!"

I'm using it in the 6th slot of my main counter team against Latios. Most of the time Latios is almost defeated so the time I lose when rejoining makes up for it's lower damage. Also it's still as good as Tyranitar against Latios. I have better dragons, but I love it because I just maxed it out for fun and I am proud about my catch rate which allowed me to not depend on rare candy. It has also use as a bulky gym cleaner but I have enough specialists for everything people throw in anyways.

Just power it up for fun with all candies you get without investing RC! It's fun.

I'd argue that instead of being as good as Tyranitar, it's downright better. Always better TTW, better TDO against everything except DC.

Latias doesn't quite have the damage output of Rayquaza, Dragonite, Salamence, or Latios, though her high defense stat does make her pretty tanky. That said, she's a perfect IV legendary (and she's not garbage like poor Suicune). I would absolutely max her out and be damn proud of her! 😁

Should you ever have the luxury of not knowing what to spend dust and rare candy on, I'd say power it up. Otherwise, it'd be quite a waste of resources in my opinion as there are far better options for dragon types and psychic types.

At a bare minute minimum, power it with the latias candy earned from raiding latias. You might end up raiding latias 25 times and have 50+ Latias candies with nothing better to use them on. The dust investment will be relatively low. Then you can decide whether you want to invest additional dust and RC.
