In a recent stream from popular traffic miner Chrales, the next legendary has been greatly hinted at!! The Regice, Registeel and Regirock models are now in the game!

Below we can look at the different models now added into the game:

So, with this in mind, we can firmly believe that after a long wait, we will be getting the Regi Trio as raid bosses when Kyogre leaves tomorrow on the 21st at 1:00pm PDT.

The shiny versions have also been added, just like the rest of the legendaries in the game, so this does not mean that there will be shiny Regis upon their first release.

To prepare for these monsters, we suggest you look at our raid guides. You can also look at the stats of the Pokémon in our Database site by clicking the sprites.

However, these Pokémon will not serve for much in the meta-game as they are awful attackers and serve mostly for defense. As we all know, legendary Pokémon cannot be used as gym defenders, so their high defense will serve for nothing. Unless the game changes the gym system in the future to allow one legendary per gym, these Pokémon will have to stay on the bench. 

Nonetheless, rejoice everyone! We are getting some new raid bosses, and for many, a break from hardcore raiding. Seriously, shiny Ho-Oh and shiny Kyogre??? We are wiped out!!! We do not know if each of these Pokémon will get their own month worldwide, like it has been in the past, but if they do, we can expect a severe raid slow-down.
