Regidrago counters and weaknesses in Pokémon Go

Below you’ll find Regidrago’s counters and weaknesses, which will help you defeat it in Pokémon Go:

  • Regidrago type – Dragon
  • Regidrago is weak against – Dragon, Fairy and Ice
  • Regidrago is resistant to – Electric, Fire, Grass and Water
  • Regidrago mega countersMega Gardevoir is best, followed by the Dragon-types Mega Salamence, Mega Latias, Mega Latios and Mega Sceptile – though you will be as weak to it as it is to you. Mega Glalie is your best Ice-type option.
  • Regidrago counters – Dragon is the way to go here: Rayquaza with Breaking Swipe is your strongest option, followed by Zekrom, Garchomp and Haxorus. If you have a Kyurem with Glaciate, that’s a great move to bring along. Failing that, an army of Dragonite is the way to go.
  • Other Regidrago notes – Normally, we’d recommend avoiding Dragon-types in Raids against other Dragons, due to the weakness Dragons have to other Dragons, but Regidrago’s defense is low enough that this is the quickest way to win. If you’re hurting for Dragons, we recommend Gardevoir, Mamoswine or Galarian Darmanitan as Fairy- and Ice-type attackers.

Everything else we know about Regidrago

Regidrago, alongside Regieleki, was introduced to the Pokémon universe in The Crown Tundra DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield, making it a Gen 8 Pokémon.

Regidrago, as its name suggests, is part of the legendary titan family – also referred to as the legendary giants in The Crown Tundra DLC and occasionally either the Regi or golem family by fans. The dots that decorate each member of the Regi family, which resemble braille, are, in fact, their eyes. The master, and creator, of this legendary group is Regigigas.

The debut of Regidrago and Regieleki was hinted at during the runup for the Season of Rising Heroes.

All of the Regi legendaries appear to take inspiration from the golems of Hebrew legend. Golems are magical beings which follow the instructions written upon their heads and, if these words are removed, they’re either weakened, no longer carry out their task or destroyed.

When it comes to Regidrago’s design specifically, it seems to have been partly inspired by the deception of dragons in Chinese mythology; its arms resemble the head of a dragon, with its body being the pearl held within the dragon’s jaws.

Good luck catching Regidrago in Pokémon Go!
