Pokémon Go Regirock counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Time to battle the Regirock - the legendary rock peak Pokémon.

Regirock, one of the three legendary titans of Hoenn, has returned to Pokémon Go.

Use your water and grass-type Pokémon to battle this legendary Pokémon created by Regigigas, so you can add it to your Pokédex.

Like the other legendary Pokémon it shares the Hoenn region with, along with its fellow titans, Regice and Registeel, Regirock will be available in five-star raids, so, if you want to add it to your collection, you'll need a team of fellow Pokémon trainers.

Everything we about Regirock

Regirock is one of the legendary titans from the Hoenn region, alongside Regice and Registeel. These three Pokémon were created by Regigigas, another legendary Pokémon, after pulled the continents of the world into place.

Regigigas used rocks to create Regice, leading people to call it the rock peak Pokémon.

For a while Regirock was worshipped alongside Regigigas and the other titans, until one day a group of humans sealed Regigigas beneath the Snowpoint Temple. Regirock, and the other titans, was then sent to the Hoenn region, where they were sealed in their chambers.

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, including the remakes, you must find the Sealed Chamber if you wish to catch Regirock. Here you will decode a series of messages written in braille that retell the story of Regigigas and its titans.

After solving the puzzle in the Sealed Chamber, you will be able to enter the other chambers hidden around Hoenn that contain Regirock and its companions.
