Regirock rolls into Raid Battles

In case you didn’t know, it’s a Rock-type Pokémon.

The last of the three Hoenn Regi Pokémon, Regirock, now has its turn to shine in Pokémon GO. It replaces Registeel as the Legendary Raid boss until September the 20th. This is over a month long; perhaps we may see an interruption.

Regirock, the Rock Peak Pokémon, has arrived on the scene and will take over Raid Battles from the Steel-type Legendary Pokémon Registeel until September 20. This Rock-type Legendary Pokémon has a sturdy defense, but it’s weak to Water-, Grass-, Fighting-, Ground-, and Steel-type attacks.

Top counters include Machamp, Hariyama, Breloom, Kyogre, Groudon, and Venusaur (with Frenzy Plant, ideally).

The other Raid Bosses are as follows, with a heavy focus on those with fourth-generation evolutions:

  • Tier 1 – Wailmer, Magikarp, Meditite, Makuhita
  • Tier 2 – Kirlia, Roselia, Mawile, Alolan Exeggutor
  • Tier 3 – Piloswine, Tangela, Donphan, Machamp, Alolan Raichu
  • Tier 4 – Absol, Rhydon, Alolan Marowak, Tyranitar

Are you eager to make Regirock crumble in battle? Or have the long-term reign of Regi Legendaries eroded your interest?
