Regieleki is the fastest Pokemon.

Regieleki is a Electric-type Pokemon. It is only weak to ground-type moves. Because they only have one weakness and excellent offensive coverage, Electric-type Pokemon are known to be good defenders as well as attackers.

Best counters for Pokemon Go Regieleki

The best overall Pokemon Go Regieleki counter is Garchomp with Mud Shot and Earth Power.

Garchomp’s Dragon/Ground-type allows him to triple resistance to Electric-type attacks.

While Garchomp is a great Pokemon Go Regieleki counter, there are several other Ground-type Pokemon that do a great job against Regieleki.

Here are the best Pokemon Go Regieleki counters:

  • Garchomp: This pseudo-legendary Pokemon is great at taking less damage from Electric-type attacks and dealing high damage in return. Due to its Community Day, most Pokemon Go players have access to an Earth Power garchomp.
  • Primal Groudon: With an incredible attack stat and the signature move Precipice Blades, Primal Groudon is a superb Regieleki counter.
  • Mega Swampert: This Mega-Evolved Pokémon can increase the damage of Ground-type attacks during the Raid Battle.
  • Mammochon: Mamoswine with Mud-Slap and High Horsepower is a reliable Pokemon to deal with Regieleki.
  • Excadrill: Excadrill is an underrated Pokemon but it can do a lot of Raid Boss damage due to Drill Run.

Other good Regieleki counters in Pokemon Go are Rhyperior, Rhydon, Flygon, and Mega Steelix.

Is Shiny Regieleki available in Pokemon Go?

No, Shiny Regieleki is not yet available in Pokemon Go. Since Regieleki is a Pokemon from the Galar region (Gen 8), it should be a while before Shiny Regieleki is available in Pokemon Go.

Regieleki is based on a light bulb.

Is Regieleki good in Pokemon Go PvP?

No, Regieleki is no good in Pokemon Go PvP.

While Lock-On gives him great energy boosts, he is limited by expensive charged moves like Thunder and Zap Cannon which give him zero coverage. Regieleki can deal damage to Pokémon like Gyarados and Ho-Oh, but that only happens when shields are down. Against opponents like Garchomp or Groudon, he does little to no damage.

Is Regieleki good in Pokemon Go PvE?

Yes, Regieleki is good in Pokemon Go PvE. But there are better electric types that do much better in raids and gyms.

With a high attack stat of 250, Regieleki can deal impressive damage in PvE. Thunder Shock pairs well with Zap Cannon to deal STAB damage to Pokemon that are weak to Electric-type attacks. We recommend dodging during battles as Regieleki’s volume is low.
