The Electric-type Regi has finally arrived in Pokemon GO, but if you want to catch Regieleki, you’ll have to defeat it in a 5-Star Raid battle!
To defeat Regieleki in Pokemon GO Raids comfortably, you will want to battle it with a team of at least six high-level Pokemon trainers.
These players should also all be using strong Ground-type Pokemon to counter Regieleki.
What Type is Regieleki?
Regieleki is a pure Electric-type Legendary Pokemon, making it tough to counter.
Electric-types have just one weakness and three resistances to consider when battling them.
Regieleki Weaknesses & Resistances
Regieleki is only weak to Ground-type attacks in Pokemon GO, and any Ground-type attack will deal 160% damage to it.
Therefore, to maximize your damage, you will want to use an entire team of Ground-type Pokemon when taking on Regieleki in 5-Star Raids.
Meanwhile, Electric, Flying, and Steel-type attacks deal just 63% damage to Regieleki.
Best Pokemon to Counter Regieleki in Raids
The best Pokemon to counter Regieleki are powerful Ground-types like Garchomp, Excadrill, Rhyperior, Mamoswine, and Groudon. This is because Ground-type attacks deal 160% damage to Regieleki.
We also highly recommend you use either Primal Groudon or Mega Swampert to boost the attack of your other Ground-type Pokemon for the Raid.
