Regice Raid Counters

Regice Raid Moveset

You're going to take damage, but minimizing casualties goes a long way in beating the brute.

To understand the best Registeel’s raid counters in Pokemon GO, you need to know what moves the Iceberg Pokemon can hit you with.

These are:

Fast Moves

  • Rock Smash 
  • Frost Breath 
  • Lock-On

Charged Moves

  • Focus Blast 
  • Blizzard 
  • Earthquake

Unlike a certain other member of the Titan trio, Regice covers its weaknesses. Earthquake can deal serious damage to any Fire-type or Steel-type Pokemon looking to utilize type advantages.

Further making life miserable for the Steel-types is Regice's access to a dual Fighting-type moveset. Whichever way you go in this fight, dodging is a must.

Raid Team Choices

Based on Regice’s typing and moveset we have some clear winners.

Metagross

  • Moves: Bullet Punch, Meteor Mash

Metagross still stands as the premier Regice counter. Its moveset directly counters Regice, and it's bulky enough to shrug off the Fighting-type moveset Regice struggles to put to good use.

Bullet Punch is fast enough to make dodging Earthquake a breeze, and Ice-type moves will barely hurt it.

Mega Charizard Y

  • Moves: Fire Spin, Blast Burn

The dual Fire/Flying typing of Mega Charizard Y helps it negate the Earthquake and resist moves like Focus Blast and Rock Smash.

It will be more susceptible to the Ice-type moves of Regice as a consequence, but it's Mega Evolution stats should keep it trucking along just fine.

Moltres

  • Moves: Fire Spin, Overheat

If you're without a Blast Burn Charizard army to drag out of your bank, the frequently available Moltres works a treat. In fact, it beats out a regular Blast Burn Charizard, making it cheaper to run.

Its benefits are much the same as Charizard due to its dual Fire/Flying typing.

Honourable Mentions

If you're looking to use other Legendary Pokemon and their stellar states, Entei and Reshiram are two powerful picks to slot into your team. Just be sure to dodge Earthquake.

Similarly, Mega Houndoom is in the same boat. It can deal stellar damage against the sentient iceberg, but Fighting-type and Ground-type attacks will destroy it.

For budget teams, Fighting-type Pokemon are great picks. Common Pokemon like Machamp (from raids) and Hariyama (from the wild) won't care too much about Regice's potential movesets.

They're not as strong as the Legendary or Mega picks above and lack the stats to fight for too long, but with Counter and Dymanic Punch at the ready, they'll cheap and common picks with respectible DPS output.
