While legendary Pokemones come in all shapes and sizes, not many are as distinctive as Regirock. The so-called Pokemon Rock Peak of the Hoenn region looks like a golem of some sort, with arms that end up punching dishes that seem piledriver. He looks like a difficult customer, and he is.
It is better to have a Pokemon like this on your side than against you, and if you have luck (well, luck and Niantic's developers), Regirock is available for you to capture and add to your roster right now through September 20th
Regirock can only be found in raids, and with its high defense, it is difficult to wear down. Here's what you need to know to defeat him in a Raid Battle.
The best Pokemon to use against Regirock
As you can see, that high defense is not widely used against Water, Grass, Struggle, Earth and Steel-type attack, which gives you lots of options when you assemble a team to fight Regirock. Increases in time can guide you in the right direction, as many Pokemon GOs have Pokémon ready for Grass and Water attacks.
However, combat types are the best because in addition to inflicting more damage, they also take less from Regirock's Rock. write (obviously!) attacks. Specifically, Machamp was found to be the best of these. Another great Pokemon to use, even if of the Water type, is Kyogre .
In the next level of solid options there are Groudon, boasting both ground and grass attacks, and Venusaur in particular with the charge of Frenzy Plant.
Do not you have any of these pokemon at your fingertips? Several sources have also indicated these as potential regulators Regirock:
- Exeggutor (or variety)
How big to Raid party do you need to effectively knock down Regirock? Pokemon GO Hub says it's possible with four coaches if everyone has Kyogre and Machamp available, but for the best chance of winning, it's best to have five to seven people in your Raid.
In addition, Regirock is powered by partly cloudy weather, so even if this makes defeat more difficult, you will also be able to take a more powerful one when you win.
How to maximize your chances of capturing Regirock after the Raid Battle
As with any Pokemon you want to capture, the best solution to capture Regirock after the battle is to use a Golden Razz Berry and use a launch curve. An excellent Curve roll after using a golden Razz Berry gives you a base success rate of over 12 percent, and that number is even higher if you have any level of the Rock Medal. It is not easy to capture Regirock, but it is true of all Legenday Pokémon.
How to use Regirock once obtained
This is probably the biggest mystery so far. Regirock would be a great defender of the gym thanks to its sturdy defense and its high HP, but alas, Pokemon GO will not let you use this way. Can you find another use for this?
The answer to this question is certainly perhaps. Regirock has a low attack value, but can be found with either Rock Throw or Stone Edge, making it one of the few Pokémon with two Rock attacks. This is considered by the Pokemon GO community the best version of Regirock, so consider it lucky if you find one.
