Metagross as a Regirock counter, what? You read it right, Metagross can deal damage quickly thanks to it’s Community Day exclusive move, and it’s a great option if you want to conserve potions, especially if you are matched against Stone Edge Regirock.
Swampert resists Electric and Rock moves, which makes a large portion of Regirock’s move pool less dangerous. Combine that with Hydro Cannon’s devastating damage and you got yourself a better version of Kyogre.
Dialga resists Electric and Rock-type moves, and its legendary stats and solid moves perform wonderfully versus Regirock. Metagross deals more damage with Meteor Mash, but Dialga is no slouch either.
Kyogre, as usual, is a beast in this match up, even if it dies a lot versus Zap Cannon. On average, Kyogre will perform a bit better than Machamp but due to the unfortunate ZC bringing it down, we’re giving it 4th place on our list.
Machamp is a great Regirock counter, takes reduced or neutral damage from all Regirock attacks, deals a ton of damage and has a great TTW in most simulated match ups. You can’t really go wrong with Machamp, but there are better options listed above.
Important note: Do not use Gyarados against Regirock as it takes double super effective damage from Zap Cannon and super effective damage from all Rock moves.
- In Rainy weather Kyogre is the best all around Regirock counter, but not if Regirock has Zap Cannon (Rainy boosts electric also)
- Groudon shines in Sunny weather, as Mud Shot and Solar Beam are both boosted. Grass Pokémon with Solar Beam also rise in efficiency, but they’re still not as good as Fighting types
