Regice is one of the three Legendary Golems in Pokemon GO, filling the Ice golem archetype. Regice has a solid max CP of 3087 making it the highest CP of all Ice type Pokemon currently in the game.
The number one thing Regice is know for is its incredible DEF (356), which is the second highest in Pokemon GO. It has access to solid moves that enable two different builds and unfortunately mediocre ATK (179) and HP (160).

Regice in the Pokémon GO meta
Regice in an interesting Ice addition to Pokemon GO. It has access to powerful moves that benefit from STAB. In most situations, Articuno bests Regice as the king of Ice attackers overall, but not in all of them!
Using simulations (PokeBattler) was the best way to see how well Regice stacked up against Articuno when taking down a defending Dragonite. The best Ice move sets were used in this simulation for each Pokemon. Stunningly, Regice fared better against Dragonite (with Dragon Tail/Outrage) than Articuno did. Although Articuno did approx 5% more damage, Regice was still able to defeat Dragonite while maintaining approximately 36% of its health! Articuno was left with only 29%!
With Ice being the best counter against Dragon types, Regice is the go-to Pokemon to choose because its survivability is so high! When it comes to countering other Pokemon like Rhydon, there are far more superior choices. If your going against Grass types, leave your Regice at home and let your Fire types do the work! All in all, Regice should definitely be a staple in your Ice team.
A nice addition to the attacking meta game and a true Dragon type killer! Lookout Salamence!
Regice is weak to the following types: Fighting, Rock, Steel and Fire. Regice resists damage from the following type(s): Ice
