Regidrago weaknesses in Pokemon Go

Regidrago is a Dragon-type Pokemon which means it’s weak against Dragon, Fairy, and Ice-type attacks. These three types are all equally effective, so you’ve got quite a few Pokemon to choose from.

On the other hand, you’ll want to avoid using Electric, Fire, Grass, and Water-type attacks as Regidrago is resistant to those and they won’t deal much damage.

How to catch Regidrago in Pokemon Go

Regidrago will appear in Elite Raids on Saturday, March 11, 2023, at 11AM, 2PM, and 5PM. This will be the only way to encounter Regidrago during the current season, so set yourself a calendar reminder now.

As this is an Elite Raid Battle, it’s going to be a lot more challenging than the Raid Battles you’re used to taking part in. Teaming up with at least eight other trainers should give you a good chance of winning.

If you manage to defeat Regidrago, you’ll be given a limited amount of Premier Balls to throw. Using Golden Razz Berries and landing Excellent Curveball Throws will increase your chances of catching it.

On a final note, remember that you can’t use Remote Raid Passes to take part in Elite Raids. This means you’ll need to go out and take them on in person, so a busy town or city is probably your best option.

Can Regidrago be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

The short and simple answer is that Shiny Regidrago is not currently available in Pokemon Go.

It’s very rare for a new Pokemon to debut alongside its Shiny variant, especially when it’s a Legendary Pokemon. This means you’ll just have to wait for Shiny Regidrago to arrive during a future event.
