Meanwhile, Latias will be available to Ultra Sun and Sun players and, like Latios, will be at a different level and have a different move set, depending on which game you download it to:

[UX] Mega Latias can change opponents’ Gold Attacks to White Attacks. Players will also want to log in daily from September 3 to September 10 at 7:59 am PDT to receive a free September 2018 Booster and expand their figure collection. A new plate will be available as a login bonus from September 3 to September 18 at 7:59 am PDT, which will increase the damage dealt by [UX] Mega Latios and [UX] Mega Latias by +30.
