Regirock (レジロック) is the 193rd Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Rock Type, and it is known as the Rock Peak Pokémon. It was created by Regigigas.

Regirock has the Clear Body Ability. This Ability makes it immune to having its Statistics lowered from an opponent's attack, but can still reduce its own Statistics as a result of its own attacks, such as Superpower. A second Ability is available to Regirock from the Dream World, the Sturdy Ability. This Ability leaves it unaffected by a One-Hit Knock Out moves, and starting in Generation V, a Pokémon with Sturdy cannot be KO'd when its HP is at its maximum, surviving with one HP.

Regirock does not evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Regirock is in the Undiscovered Egg Group; like most Legendary Pokémon it cannot breed. It takes a Regirock 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Game Information

Original Games

Regirock can be found at Desert Ruins in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. In Pokémon Platinum, Regirock can appear inside Rock Peak Ruins, which is just off Route 228. Regirock can only appear in Platinum once the 11th Movie Regigigas has been transferred over to Platinum, however.

Regirock can be found within the Rock Peak Chamber in the Underground Ruins in Black 2 and White 2. To gain access to Rock Peak Chamber, move six steps down, then nine steps to the right, then press the A Button to activate a hidden switch. Capturing it will unlock a key that is specific to each game. In Black 2, capturing Regirock unlocks the Iron Key; in White 2 the Iceberg Key is unlocked.

Activating the specific key within the menu when starting the game is required to access the Iceberg Chamber or the Iron Chamber.

Spin-off Games

Regirock does not appear very often, limited to appearing at Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Regirock appears on the 15th Floor of Buried Relic in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Regirock appears at Aegis Cave inside of the Regirock Room. While it can't be recruited on the first trip, it can be recruited on the second trip. Regirock is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the 24th Floor of Weird Mountain.

Regirock appears at Cycla Mountain Range, but a pair of Break x3, one Water x3 and one Fire x3 is required to reach it in Pokémon Ranger. Regirock also appears in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, but the Field Assists Surf x1 and Break x5 are required to reveal it. Regirock does not appear in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

Brandon used a Regirock in a battle against Ash in the episode Battling the Enemy Within. During this battle, Ash was under the possession of an ancient spirit, and lost the battle using his Sceptile despite not being in control of himself.

Brandon's Regirock would appear again in the episodes A Pyramiding Rage! and Pillars of Friendship in which Regirock-along with Regice and Registeel-were under the spell of Regigigas, who was enraged by Hunter J. Regirock and Company would come to their senses and help calm Regigigas.

Movies

Wild Regirock appeared in the film Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and the Pikachu Short Pikachu's Exploration Club.

Manga

Regirock would originally be used by Sidney and Drake of Hoenn's Elite Four to limit the damage caused by the fighting between Groudon and Kyogre, along with Regice and Registeel. In this capacity Regirock would appear in Chapters 251, 252, 254, 255, 260, 261 and 264.

When it appeared that Steven had died, Regirock would break free from the control of the Elite Four and leave as a result. That is, until Brandon captured it. Regirock would appear with Brandon in Chapters 303, 311-313 & 318.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Regirock is in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With great mixed bulk and a Rock-typing to hand it Fire, Normal, and Flying-type attacks, Regirock is a solid defensive Pokémon with good support options. With a nice support movepool consisting of moves like Thunder Wave and Stealth Rock, Regirock can support a team very well. It is a better check than Rhydon to certain Pokémon like Pyroar due to its mono Rock-typing not giving it as debilitating of weaknesses to Grass and Water. Regirock's best set is a mixed defensive tank set that can provide solid Stealth Rock support and check the likes Archeops, Pyroar, and Scyther. It can also run a Sunny Day set that acts as a nice sun setter due to its bulk and can use Explosion to give way for a weather sweeper to wreak havoc. However, Regirock is vulnerable to being worn down as it relies solely on Leftovers for recovery. It also faces competition from Steelix and Rhydon as a Stealth Rock setter, as both provide nice Normal and Flying resists while having other certain advantages, with Steelix being capable of checking Psychic-types and Rhydon having a great STAB combination and higher Attack stat.
