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.

Trading Card Game
Regirock appears in a total of five 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.
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.
Wild Regirock appeared in the film Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and the Pikachu Short Pikachu's Exploration Club.
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.
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.
Regirock cannot learn any moves by way of breeding.
