Since Regice is a pure ice type Pokèmon, it is weak to Fire, Fighting, Rock and Steel type Moves. The best counters to Regice must have at least one of these types of moves!
Let’s go through some the the counters below:
With Reshiram being in raids recently, this is a fairly accessible Pokemon, with access to Fire fang and Overheat, it is the best non-mega counter to Regice.
Best all around Regice raid counter, takes reduced or neutral damage from most Regice attacks (Earthquake excluded), has enough bulk and with access to bullet punch and meteor mash (legacy), deals a lot of damage very quickly.
It was in raids right recently, making it super accessible for trainers to use, it has access to fire spin and flamethrower, it is bound to do a good chunk of damage to Regice.
The best Mega Pokemon to use against Regice, is Mega Charizard Y and Mega Charizard X, both having access to Fire Spin and Blast Burn (Legacy) make them the best counters to use. Mega Houndoom with Fire Fang and Flamethrower and Mega Aerodactyl with Rock Throw and Rock Slide are also great counters.
The shadow variants of Entei with Fire Fang and Overheat, Moltres with Fire Spin and Overheat, Machamp with counter and cross chop and Charizard with Fire Spin and Blast Burn (Legacy), all serve as amazing counters to Regice.
If you don’t have any of the counters listed, don’t worry! There are plenty of budget counters you can use to beat Regice!
-Genesect with Metal Claw and Magnet Bomb
-Machamp with Counter and Cross Chop
-Emboar with Low Kick and Blast Burn (Legacy)
-Rhyperior with Smack Down and Rock Wrecker (Legacy)
And any other Pokèmon that use Fire, Fighting, Rock and Steel Type moves also serve as effective counters.
