Once you get the Eon Flute, you have the ability to call on your Latios or Latias at any time to Soar in the Sky. Here, you can fly over the Hoenn region and land in any place that you visit. Flying of the Pokémon is all under your control, with the ability to speed up, slow down and even do tricks in the air using the shoulder buttons. You can also land at any time above a route, island or town that you have already been to.
From time to time, you will see flocks of flying Pokémon around as well as a variety of islands and areas that have stars over them.
Once a day, you will find a random island on the outskirts of the Hoenn Region. These islands are relatively small but can be seen due to a distinctive red shine above them. These are the Mirage Islands. There are four different varieties: Mirage Island, Mirage Cave, Mirage Forest and Mirage Moutain, each with different attributes, and each island in each variety is different. As each day passes, one island disappears and the next island re-appears
Among the various places you can visit while Soaring, you will be able to find Mirage Spots. These spots are special areas in the sky or on islands inaccessible without flying, and only when you have achieved certain requirements, which will give you access to a variety of Legendary Pokémon. These Pokémon can only be obtained through these methods in this generation.
