Regice is very powerful in Pokemon Go, but the right counters will help you.

Regice weaknesses in Pokemon Go

As a pure Ice-type Pokemon, Regice has a few obvious weaknesses you’ll want to exploit: Fire, Fighting, Rock, and Steel. Focus on bringing Pokemon of these types into battle for the best chance of success.

Remember that Regice and its Ice-type attacks are strong against Dragon, Grass, Ground, and Flying-type Pokemon. Avoid using these types at all costs, as Regice will have no problem defeating them.

How to catch Regice in Pokemon Go

Regice will appear in 5-Star Raids during a special Raid Hour on Sunday, November 28, 2021, from 6PM to 7PM local time. As with any Legendary, you’ll need to defeat it before you can try to catch it.


Once you win the battle, you’ll be given a set amount of Premier Balls to throw. Its catch rate is very low, but you can increase your chances of securing it by getting Excellent throws, Curve Balls, and using Berries.

Can Regice be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

The good news is that Shiny Regice is currently available in Pokemon Go, but as with any Shiny variation, it won’t be easy to catch, and there aren’t any special methods to increase your chances.

The only way to encounter a Shiny Regice is to take part in as many 5-Star Raid Battles as you can, and hope for the best. You’ll only have an hour, so a lot of this will be down to luck!
