Registeel 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 Registeel from the Dream World, the Light Metal Ability. This Ability cuts its weight in half, affecting the amount of damage it takes from attacks in which a Pokémon's weight determines the power of the move.
Registeel does not evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.
Registeel takes on the appearance of a golem made out of the purest metals.
Registeel is a Genderless Pokémon.
Registeel can be found at the Ancient Tomb alongside Route 120 in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. In Pokémon Platinum, Registeel can appear inside Iron Island at the Iron Ruins. Registeel won't appear in Platinum unless the 11th Movie Regigigas has been transferred over to Platinum.
Registeel can be found in the Iron Chamber in the Underground Ruins in Black 2 and White 2. After capturing Regirock in Pokémon Black 2, the Iron Key will be unlocked, which can be selected from the menu after starting the game. Selecting the Iron Key grants access to the Iron Chamber where Registeel resides; to get this key in Pokémon White 2 you'll have to use the Unova Link feature to trade for the Iron Key.
Registeel does not appear very often, limited to appearing at Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
Registeel appears on the 35th Floor of Buried Relic in the first round of Mystery Dungeon games. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness & Explorers of Sky, Registeel appears at Aegis Cave inside of the Registeel Room. While it can't be recruited on the first trip, it can be recruited on the second trip. Registeel is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the 24th Floor of Weird Forest.
Registeel appears at Croca Tunnel, but multiple Field Assists are required to reach it in Pokémon Ranger. The required Field Assists are 2 Cross x2, 1 Cut x2 and 4 Break x2. Registeel also appears in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, but the Field Assist Slash x5 is required to reveal it. Registeel does not appear in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs.
Registeel can be found at Sunny Seashore Factory 4-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.
To obtain Registeel in Pokémon Conquest, clear Ieyasu's Episode and have Facilities at a level greater than or equal to 2. After each of these conditions have been met Registeel can be found at Valora.
Trading Card Game
Registeel appears in a total of seven sets and the Pokémon Card Game Promos in Japan as a Rare Card. It is listed as a Rare Card in the EX Hidden Legends (EX Card), EX Emerald (EX Card), EX Legend Maker (Shiny Card), EX Holon Phantoms, and Legends Awakened sets--the same sets in which Regirock and Regice also appear in. Registeel is listed as an Ultra Rare Card in the Dragons Exalted (2 EX Cards) set.
Brandon's Registeel would appear again in the episodes A Pyramiding Rage! and Pillars of Friendship in which Registeel-along with Regirock and Regice-were under the spell of Regigigas, who was enraged by Hunter J. The Legendary Golems would eventually come to their senses and help to bring Regigigas to its senses.
A wild Registeel appeared in the film Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and the Pikachu Short Pikachu's Exploration Club.
Like the other two Legendary Golems that were introduced in the third generation, Registeel would appear under the command of two Trainers intertwined with Hoenn's Elite Four, but these two trainers have been listed as the Hoenn League Champion: Steven and Wallace. Under the command of these two trainers and alongside Regirock and Regice, Registeel would try to limit the damage caused by the Groudon/Kyogre Conflict. In this role Registeel would appear in Chapters 251, 252, 254, 255, 257, 260, 263 and 264.
When it had become apparent that Steven had died, Registeel would also break free from the control of the Elite Four and return to the wild. Brandon would find and capture Registeel as well as Regice and Regirock. With Brandon, Registeel makes an appearance in Chapters 303, 311-313 & 318.
Registeel is in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With amazing 80/150/150 bulk and a solid Steel-typing, Registeel is an excellent wall that excels against the likes of Exploud, Venusaur, Meloetta, Mega Glalie, Fletchinder, and Abomasnow. It has some great support options in Stealth Rock and Thunder Wave which can provide very valuable support to a team. Registeel can also run a Curse set that bolsters its Attack and Defense stats, making it so that even super effective physical attacks will bounce off while Registeel manages to act as a decent mid to late-game wincon. However, it suffers in regards to its bad offensive prowess and weakness to common attacking types like Ground, Fire, and Fighting. This leaves it vulnerable to threats like Emboar, Virizion, and Flygon, all Pokémon that can easily take advantage of Registeel's presence. It also struggles against Pokémon that can make 101 HP Substitutes due to its reliance on Seismic Toss to do damage, leaving it as set up bait against Pokémon like Braviary and Meloetta.
Registeel cannot learn any moves by way of breeding.
