Pokemon Go’s Niantic previously announced that Registeel, Regice, and Regirock were to return in the Season of Discovery this June, and we’ve got some five-star raid tips for you. 

The legendary trio returned with Season of Discovery, which features content including new egg hatches, a surprise Pokemon to appear in five-star raids alongside them on June 17, and more.

The event follows on from Luminous Legends X & Y, which saw the likes of Yveltal, Pancham, Sylveon, and others appear for the very first time.

With a surprise on the cards, it will be interesting to see what the developers have up their sleeve, as this will be the final hoorah before Pokemon Go Fest this July – which will also bring new Shiny Pokemon.


Until that time, let’s focus on Registeel – because it’s going to be a tough battle for many trainers. Preparing well and knowing its weaknesses will be important if you want to stand a chance.


How to catch Registeel Pokemon Go

On June 9, players saw an increased spawn rate for the ‘mon. Despite that now being over, it is still available to catch in Pokemon Go until June 17, 2021. 

The incredibly strong ‘mon will be available to catch only in Raid Battles.

Raid Boss details

As Registeel is a 5-star Raid Boss, it’s easy to see why it’s a difficult one to defeat and catch.

Is Shiny Registeel in Pokemon Go?

Here’s how Shiny Registeel looks.

The short answer is yes. Shiny Registeel does appear as part of five-star raids in Pokemon Go, although they are rare to find, so don’t count on catching one quickly. That said, as part of the Season of Discovery, the shiny rate will be slightly higher than usual.

This Regi is capable of six moves, ranging from Normal-type, Steel-type, and Fighting-type. These are listed below.

  • Metal Claw
  • Rock Smash
  • Lock-On

Registeel Pokemon Go weaknesses

As a Steel-type, it’s fairly straightforward in terms of what’s the biggest weaknesses for Registeel. Those are Fire, Ground, and Fighting-type Pokemon/moves.

As it is a five-star raid Pokemon, however, things may not be too easy in battle. So let’s dive into the counters, to make sure you’re prepared.
