Regice Moves Analysis

Regice has access to the following moves:

Fast moves Charge moves
  • Rock Smash Fighting
  • Frost Breath Ice
  • Lock-On Normal
  • Focus Blast Fighting
  • Blizzard Ice
  • Earthquake Ground

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 one hit knock out any fire type.
  • 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 Snow 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 have a solid team of Fighting types.

Regice Sprites

Regice is available shiny, with the only real difference being a slightly darker colour

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
