How to beat Regice in Pokémon Go – Weaknesses, counters, strategies

How do you take it down?

Regice is one of the three legendary Regi Pokémon. In Pokémon Go, you have the chance to battle and capture it by participating in a five-star raid. Unless you have some of the best Pokémon available and you’ve reached the highest level, chances are you’ll need a friend or two to help take it down.

Regice Weaknesses

Regice is an Ice-type Pokémon. It’s weak to Fighting, Fire, Rock, and Steel-type moves, but it is resistant to Ice-type attacks. So long as you don’t use its similar typing against it, you should be able to heavily damage it with almost several unique Pokémon during the battle.

Best Pokémon to counter Regice

The three best Pokémon you can use to fight against Regice include Metagross, Mega Charizard Y, and Machamp.

Metagross is a Steel and Psychic-type Pokémon. Most players who regularly participate in the Ultra League have likely captured one and use it fairly often. It’s a great Pokémon to use against Regice and several other legendary Pokémon that frequently rotate throughout the yearly events. It has a maximum CP of 3,791, an attack of 214, a defense of 192, and a stamina of 162. Its best moveset consists of bullet punch for its fast move, meteor mash and earthquake for its charge moves.

Next up, we recommend using Mega Charizard Y, the Fire and Flying-type version of Mega Charizard. It leans into Regice’s weakness of Fire-type and has a massive amount of attack power. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the best health, so you want to use it wisely. It has a maximum CP of 4,455, an attack of 263, a defense of 179, and a stamina of 158. Its best moveset against Regice consists of fire sping for its fast attack, and then blast burn and dragon claw for its charge moves.

For our final recommended, you should consider using Machamp, the Fighting-type Pokémon. Much like Metagross, Machamp is a powerful Pokémon that many trainers who participate in the PvP portion of Pokémon Go likely have several variations of one in their roster. It has a maximum CP of 3,056, an attack of 196, a defense of 137, and a stamina of 175. Its best moveset is counter for its fast attack, and then cross chop and rock slide for its charge moves.

If you can, for Machamp and Metagross, we recommend using their shadow versions. These are significantly more powerful and will be able to deal more damage.

Regice is also weak to several other Pokémon. You might consider using Moltres, Entei, Reshiarm, Magmortar, Darmanitan, Mega Houndoom, Blaziken, Chandelure, Lucario, Rhyperior, or Mewtwo.
