How to Beat Regieleki Raids in Pokemon GO

Niantic, Pokémon Company

Regieleki has finally come to Pokémon GO, a month after its counterpart, Regidrago, first debuted in Elite Raids.

This Electric-type Legendary Titan Pokémon officially was released into the main-series games with the arrival of the Downloadable Content for the Generation VIII games; Pokémon Sword and Shield. Players could find this Pokémon in their travels across the new part of the Galar region and had to choose between Regieleki or Regidrago to join their team.

Regieleki is particularly characterized by its very high speed stat and its ability to quickly demolish Pokémon with low Special Defense stats due to its incredibly high Special Attack stat as well. Although, it is worth noting this Pokémon is somewhat frail and can be quite difficult to use correctly if players are not careful with it.

Regieleki Raids will definitely be difficult due to this Pokémon's intense potential damage output and legendary Pokémon status, but there is one weakness for Regieleki that can be exploited (almost quite literally); its Ground-type bane.

Due to this weakness, there's actually a lot of potential strong Pokémon that can totally resist and negate most of Regieleki's potential devstation of a player's team in a raid. Here are some of those Pokémon, with good moves to possibly use:

  • Garchomp - Mud Shot and Earth Power
  • Excadrill - Mud-Slap and Earthquake
  • Rhyperior - Mud-Slap and Earthquake
  • Mamoswine - Mud-Slap and High Horsepower
  • Groudon - Mud Shot and Precipice Blades

Using any of these Pokémon are sure to aid players in guaranteeing victory in this challenging Raid Battle.

Regieleki made its Pokémon GO Debut on Sunday, Apr. 9, as a part of the Rising Heroes event.
