The Legendary Regirock is coming back to Pokemon Go’s 5-Star Raids for a limited time, so if you’re planning on taking down the tough Rock-type Pokemon, here are its weaknesses and best counters in the game.

The big tough golem known as Regirock was introduced to the franchise in Gen 3’s Hoenn region as part of the Legendary Giants group along with Regice, Registeel, Regieleki, and Regidrago.

Since its debut in Pokemon Go, Regirock has been popping in and out of 5-Star Raid battles, and now it’s coming back for more as it will appear as a Raid Boss from May 16, 2024, until May 23, 2024, giving players plenty of time to catch it.

If you’re looking to add the Legendary Pokemon to your Pokedex, here are its weaknesses and best counters.

As a pure Rock-type Pokemon, Regirock has many glaring weaknesses that trainers can exploit. Steel, Ground, Fighting, Water, and Grass-type moves heavily weaken Regirock and will help you defeat the legendary golem.

However, it’s worth noting that Regirock is resistant to Normal, Flying, Poison, and Fire-type attacks, so keep those out of your arsenal.

How to get Regirock in Pokemon Go

There have been many different ways to acquire Regirock in the game throughout the years. From Research Tasks to rescue its Shadow version from Giovanni, however, the most common way to get Regirock in the game is through 5-Star Raid battles.

Luckily for those hunting the golem, Regirock will appear as a Raid Boss from May 16, 2024, until May 23, 2024. Additionally, it will be featured during the Raid Hour on May 22, 2024, from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time.

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 rotations.

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 5-Star Raids as you can while Regirock is available.
