Regigigas in Pokemon GO has become the new opponent for EX-Raids starting Jan. 23.

The featured Pokemon in this EX Raid is Regigigas, a Normal-type Legendary Pokemon introduced in Generation IV. As with other normal-type Pokemon, learning what counters him is important, and it isn't as obvious as a water or fire-type Pokemon

Regigigas Pokemon GO: How to Counter Regigigas Ex-Raid

Luckily, some of the most powerful and offensive Pokemon are fighting-type Pokemon which is the main weakness of normal-type. Any of these Pokemon will do great against Regigigas.

  • Lucario with Counter and Aura Sphere
  • Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Breloom with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Hariyama with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Toxicroak with Counter and Dynamic Punch
  • Heracross with Counter and Close Combat

The only problem is Regigigas has a lot of Psychic-type moves which decimate fighting-type Pokemon, so be prepared to rotate a lot of Pokemon.

By the time the new EX-Raids go live, the new battle changes will take affect.

  • Charged Attacks and switching will now be queued and activated at the end of the current Fast Attack and won’t be overridden by any following Fast Attacks.
  • Certain visual bugs in battles have been fixed.

A few other Pokemon had visuals fixed and some older Pokemon can learn new moves!
