Best Pokémon vs Regice
Entei Fire Spin Fire Overheat Fire
Best all around Regice raid counter, takes reduced or neutral damage from most Regice attacks (Earthquake excluded of course), has enough bulk and deals a lot of damage.
Moltres Fire Spin Fire Overheat Fire
Moltres goes toe to toe with Entei, and is actually the prefered counter versus Earthquake and Focus Blast, as it’s Flying typing reduces the damage from both.
Charizard Fire Spin Fire Blast Burn Fire
It’s time to pull those Blast Burn Zards from retirement, as this budget Moltres does wonders against Regice.
Flareon Fire Spin Fire Overheat Fire
If Blast Burn Charizard is the budget version of Moltres, same can be said for Flareon and Entei. This high DPS glass cannon may not survive long, but it will deal a surprising amount of damage.
Ho-Oh Steel Wing Steel Fire Blast Fire
Surprisingly, Ho-Oh performs really well against Regice – Steel Wing as a quick move deals SE damage, Fire Blast is no Blast Burn, but it’s still fine.
Machamp Counter Fighting Dynamic Punch Fighting
Machamp is a very solid option versus Regice, however it pales in comparison to premiere Fire type counters we listed above. A Machamp is always good, but we’d prefer the before listed options.
Tyranitar Smack Down Rock Stone Edge Rock
If Regice doesn’t have Focus Blast, a Smack Down Tyranitar is a great addition to your attacking team, as it deals a lot of damage and can take a pounding.
Blaziken Counter Fighting Overheat Fire
Breloom Counter Fighting Dynamic Punch Fighting

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, except for Tyranitar. But then again, you wouldn’t pick a Tyranitar against a FB Regice, would you?
  • Earthquake is very dangerous, as it deals SE vs Fire types and will likely OHKO any Flareon, or Blaziken 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.

Cloudy weather is also beneficial for boosting your Fighting types, as many players will just be putting together a team of Machamp to take on all three of the Regis.

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
