Follow this up with an army of Groudon, if you have them, Garchomp if you don’t (if you did the Community Day you should hopefully have a few decent ones by now), or your strongest Ground types if all else fails!

Everything else we know about Regieleki

Regieleki, along with Regidrago, first appeared in The Crown Tundra DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield, which makes it part of Gen 8.

Regieleki is a member of the legendary titan family; sharing the braille-like eyes and the naming convention of having 'Regi' at the start of its name. It is both the smallest and lightest Pokémon in this legendary family.

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

This Pokémon’s design appears to have taken inspiration from the concept of electricity itself. Regieleki’s arms resemble electric arcs - electrical breakdowns of gas which produce electrical discharge - with the bands connecting these arms to its body resembling electrical bonds. The shape of Regieleki’s body, meanwhile, is similar to that of a lightbulb, with its legs having a power-plug like appearance.

Interestingly, Regieleki has the highest base Speed stat out of any Pokémon in the mainline series of the game. Since the Speed stat doesn’t exist in Pokémon Go, however, it will lack this feature in that game.

Good luck catching Regieleki in Pokémon Go!
