Counters analysis

Metagross

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

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

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

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

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.

Weather considerations

  • 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

Regirock moves analysis

Our choice of counters is not surprising as Regirock has access to the following moves:

Fast moves Charge moves
  • Rock Throw Rock
  • Rock Smash Fighting
  • Lock On Normal
  • Stone Edge Rock
  • Focus Blast Fighting
  • Zap Cannon Electric

Regirock’s move pool is features mostly Rock and Fighting type moves, which makes picking counters a breeze. If you follow our counters advice, none of the moves is especially dangerous.

Focus Blast is traditionally Regirock’s most dangerous charge move, simply because most counters take neutral damage. Focus Blast can deal a lot of damage, so be sure to dodge it whenever possible.

Final Notes

  • Take advantage of Fighting types when battling against Regirock in Cloudy weather
  • To catch a weather boosted Regirock, raid during Partly Cloudy weather
  • A level 20, 100% IV Regirock will be 1784 CP, and weather boosted will be 2230 CP
  • Avoid using Pokémon that will take super effective damage, unless if they have a high CP and DPS value
