Regice raid guide: counters, weather, IVs and CPs

Regice Pokémon GO

Regice raid is a level 5 Legendary Raid boss in Pokémon GO, with 41777 Raid Boss CP and pure Ice typing. Regice counters should make it a fairly easy Raid Boss to take down, especially when utilizing its Fire weakness.

Regice´s max capture combat power is as follows:

  • 1764 CP (No weather boost, level 20, 100% IV)
  • 2205 CP (Snowy weather, level 25, 100% IV)

In this guide, you will learn which counters are best suited against the Legendary Pokémon Regice. To take down Regice, as long as you prepare well using this guide, should be able to go down with around 5 trainers, or at minimum 3 players.

Regice Raid Counters

The most popular Regice counters will without a doubt be Hariyama, Machamp and Flareon, as Regice’s moves can’t directly counter them in any way.

While picking counters, we tried our best to pick counters that deal a large amount of damage and take reduced damage from Regice’s moves. Regice has access to the following moves:

  • Rock Smash Fighting (quick)
  • Frost Breath Ice (quick)
  • Focus Blast Fighting (charged, 1 bar)
  • Blizzard Ice (charged, 1 bar)
  • Earthquake Ground (charged, 1 bars)

Regice raids significantly vary in difficulty:

  • Blizzard (and Frost Breath Ice) deal reduced damage against Fire counters, making the fight significantly easier on your Revive / Potions stash.
  • Focus Blast can be dangerous, but it doesn’t deal SE damage to anything you would pick for your team.
  • Earthquake is very dangerous, as it deals SE vs Fire types and will likely OHKO any Flareon, Blaziken or Charizard you bring to the table.
  • The moveset that worries us is Rock Smash and Earthquake, mostly because it’s relatively good against Fire and can lead to increased Revive/Potion spending

Weather considerations

Knowing what Regice’s weaknesses and strengths are, we can now take a better look at Regice and weather effects on it. We know that Regice gets weather boosted in snowy weather which for many trainers can be very hard to come across, but honestly don’t worry — it really isn’t worth waiting for snowy weather to do a Regice raid.

Like we saw, Fire types are very effective against Regice, so it is recommended you wait until sunny weather to have some extra strength on your side, just be cautious if Regice has Earthquake Ground.

Final notes

  • Take advantage of Fire types when battling against Regice in sunny weather
  • To catch a weather boosted Regice, raid during snowy weather
  • A level 20, 100% IV Regice will be 1764 CP, and weather boosted will be 2205 CP
  • Avoid using Pokémon that will take super effective damage, unless if they have a high CP and DPS value
