Registeel is returning to 5-Star Raids for a very special Pokemon Go Raid Hour on November 28, so we’ve got the best counters you need to take down this Legendary Titan and catch it for yourself.

To celebrate the end of the Season of Mischief, there will be several bonus Raid Hours taking place during the Mischief Unbound event, giving Trainers another chance to catch some fan-favorite Legendaries for their team.

On Sunday, November 26 from 6PM to 7PM, players will be able to encounter the Legendary Titans, Registeel, Regice, and Regirock in 5-Star Raid Battles, and with our counters you’ll be able to defeat them in no time.

Registeel weaknesses in Pokemon Go

Registeel is a pure Steel-type, meaning it’s fairly straightforward in terms of what its biggest weaknesses are: Fire, Ground, and Fighting. Focus on these types and you’ll have a good chance at success.

In terms of strengths, Registeel will have no problem taking down Fairy, Ice, and Rock-type Pokemon, so avoid taking these into battle wherever possible.

How to catch Registeel Pokemon Go

In order to catch Registeel in Pokemon Go, you’ll first need to defeat it in a 5-Star Raid Battle. Registeel will appear in Raids for a short time from 6PM to 7PM on Sunday, November 26, 2021.


Once you defeat it, you’ll be given a limited amount of Premier Balls to throw, although its catch rate is very low. Make sure you land Excellent throws, curve your Poke Ball, and use Berries to help you secure it.

Can Registeel be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

The good news is that Shiny Registeel is currently available in Pokemon Go. You’ll be able to catch it in 5-Star Raid Battles, but the chances of finding one are incredibly slim, so it’s a game of luck, really.

There’s no way to increase your odds of finding one, so you’ll just have to take part in as many Raid Battles as you can during the Raid Hour, and hope for the best!
