Regirock returns to Raids – Raid Guide, was written by POGORaiders Moderator, Dark.
Regirock is a pure rock type legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation 3 and is a part of the legendary Regi-trio. Regirock is entirely made of stone and rock as it does not seem to have a heart or brain. It generally lives in caves or ruins as it was sealed away years ago by ancient people. When it gets damaged in battle it will search for new rocks to repair itself. Because of this, the rocks it is made of come from several different places, which contributes to Regirock’s patchwork appearance.
Regirock, along with it’s shiny form, will be available in 5 star raids from February 1st 10am local time to February 9th 10 am local time.
– Regirock caught during this time will know the exclusive charged move, Earthquake!
– Since it is a pure rock type, it will be boosted by Partly Cloudy Weather.
– Its 100% IV is 1784 (Non-Boosted) and 2230 (Boosted).
– Regirock raid hour will be on February 2nd 6pm-7pm local time.
Since Regirock is a pure rock type Pokèmon, it is weak to Fighting, Ground, Water, Steel and Grass type moves. The best counters to Regirock must have at least one of these types of moves!
Let’s go through some the the counters below:
The dragon/ground type pseudo legendary Pokèmon is a great counter to Regirock, with access to mudshot as it’s fast move, and Earth Power as it’s charged move (Which you could get during Gible Community Day) It deals super effective damage to Regirock.
This pure ground type legendary pokemon is said to be the personification of the land itself. Legends tell of its many clashes against Kyogre (which is also a great counter), as each sought to gain the power of nature. It has access to Mud Shot and Earthquake. It can charge up, and deal damage quickly.
This ground/rock pokemon has access to Mud Slap and Earthquake with both being very hard hitting ground type moves, it is a great counter to Regirock.
This pseudo legendary pokèmon has access to Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash (Legacy), is the best non-mega and non-shadow raid attacker for Regirock. It is highly recommended to use it.
The shadow variants of Metagross with Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash (legacy), Swampert with Mud Shot and Hydro Cannon (legacy),
Torterra with Razor Leaf and Frenzy Plant (legacy) all serve as highly effective counters.
Mega Blastoise with Water Gun and Hydro Cannon(legacy) and Mega Venusaur with Vine Whip and Frenzy Plant(legacy) are ranked the number 1 and 2 counters to Regirock respectively. Mega Gyarados with Waterfall and Hydro Pump also serves as a very effective counter.
If you don’t have any of the counters listed, don’t worry! There are plenty of budget counters you can use to beat Regirock.
– Machamp with Counter and Cross Chop.
– Excadrill with Metal Claw and Earthquake.
– Genesect with Metal Claw and Magnet Bomb.
– Empoleon with Metal Claw and Hydro Cannon(legacy).
