    It's better suited as an all out attacker instead of a Pokemon who sets up using Calm Minds and such.

    Here's an example: Special Dragon Dance

    Latios

    Life Orb

    4 HP/252 Sp. Atk/ 252 Spe

    ~ Dragon Dance

    ~ Dragon Pulse

    ~ Thunderbolt / Grass Knot/Recover

    ~ Surf/Hidden Power Fire/Recover

    Basically, this Latios uses Dragon Dance to boosts it's speed (and attack, but it won't use any physical attacks anyway) to high levels and sweep with great coverage. This is the best set for a Latios personally, since it makes up for it's lower speed stat (thanks to Modest) with Dragon Dance while still retaining it's high powered special attacks.

    Here's another set: Life Orb Latios

    Latios

    Life Orb

    -Draco Meteor

    -Dragon Pulse

    -Grass Knot/Thunderbolt/Recover

    -Surf/Recover

    This is basically a Latios with no boosting moves, but hits just as hard as the et mentioned above without need to set up. Draco Meteor is powerful with this Latios since a Modest Draco Meteor will OHKO a lot of Pokemon! The other moves are for coverage and/or reliability.

    Calm Mind isn't listed since you can boost your stats, but you'll be outsped by versions of Salamence and KO's by it's dragon attacks before you KO it back (Unless you use it with Substitute to have a safety guard).

    Hope that helped!!

    All movesets suggest Timid nature, but Modest would be fine as well
