Registeel Raid Counters

Registeel counters are based around strong Fire, Ground and Fighting Pokemon, with preference for those who take reduced damage from Registeel’s moves.

Legendary Counters
Entei Fire Spin Fire Overheat Fire
Moltres Fire Spin Fire Overheat Fire
Flareon Fire Spin Fire Overheat Fire
Groudon Mud Shot Ground Earthquake Ground
Machamp Counter Fighting Dynamic Punch Fighting
Hariyama Counter Fighting Dynamic Punch Fighting
Ho-Oh Extrasensory Psychic Fire Blast Fire
Weakness  Fire Fighting Ground

Picking Registeel counters is simple due to its mono-Steel typing (which enables exploiting three common weaknesses) and a lack of surprises in its movepool. Registeel can have the following moves:

  • Metal Claw Steel 10.00 DPS (Fast)
  • Rock Smash Fighting 8.46 DPS (Fast)
  • Flash Cannon Steel 31.85 DPS (Charged, 1 Bar)
  • Focus Blast Fighting 28.86 DPS (Charged, 1 Bar)
  • Hyper Beam Normal 28.42 DPS (Charged, 1 Bar)

Overall, Registeel is an easy Raid Boss to beat and rather disappointing for a legendary raid. It’s low CP and low stats (bar defense) make it an easy target for all of its counters, especially once you realize that it is unable to do much damage to its direct counters.

Arguably the “safest” counter to Registeel is Ho-oh, who resists all of Registeel’s moves bar Hyper Beam and can do heavy damage to Registeel with Fire Blast. However, we prefer using high DPS Fire types that don’t usually get a lot of usage. Groudon is a beast against Registeel, utilizing double Ground moveset to inflict ridiculous damage.
