How to catch Regirock in Pokemon Go

Regirock appears in 5-Star Raids during limited Raid Hour on Sunday, November 28, 2021, from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. Before being able to catch one for yourself, though, you’ll need to defeat 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 ensuring you land Excellent throws, Curve Balls, and Berries will all help to collect one of your own.


Can Regirock be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

After being released into Pokemon Go all the way back in 2019 with the Legendary Titans event, Shiny Regirock will be available to collect again during the upcoming Raid Hour event.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to guarantee you’ll encounter the rare Pokemon as it all comes down to luck. The best way to increase your chances is to play as many five-star Raids as you can while the Rock-type is available during the one-hour event.
