Top Regidrago Counters

Pokebattler, which calculates all possible combinations of Pokémon and moves, lists the top ten Regidrago counters as such:

  • Mega Gardevoir: Charm, Dazzling Gleam
  • Mega Salamence: Dragon Tail, Draco Meteor
  • Shadow Dragonite: Dragon Tail, Draco Meteor
  • Mega Latios: Dragon Breath, Dragon Claw
  • Primal Groudon: Dragon Tail, Precipice Blades
  • Shadow Latios: Dragon Breath, Dragon Claw
  • Shadow Gardevoir: Charm, Dazzling Gleam
  • Rayquaza: Dragon Tail, Breaking Swipe
  • Shadow Mamoswine: Powder Snow, Avalanche
  • Shadow Salamence: Dragon Tail, Draco Meteor

It is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, but creating that amount of strong Shadow Pokémon with their moves unlocked is a tall order for even the most practiced players. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help take down Regidrago with efficiency.

  • Salamence: Dragon Tail, Draco Meteor
  • Palkia: Dragon Tail, Draco Meteor
  • Kyurem: Dragon Breath, Glaciate
  • Dragonite: Dragon Tail, Draco Meteor
  • Dialga: Dragon Breath, Draco Meteor
  • Reshiram: Dragon Breath, Draco Meteor
  • Zekrom: Dragon Breath, Outrage
  • Latios: Dragon Breath, Dragon Claw
  • Garchomp: Dragon Trail, Outrage
  • Galarian Darmanitan: Ice Fang, Avalanche

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

Regidrago can be defeated with two trainers… but just barely. If you cannot guarantee the top counters with maxed-out CP and the best moves, your best bet is to make sure you have four or more players. Using the Circle Lock Technique to guarantee Great or Excellent throws, along with Golden Razz Berries, is the best way to catch Pokémon.

Shiny Odds & 100% IVs

Regidrago cannot currently be encountered in its Shiny form. When looking for a Pokémon with the best stats, the 100% IV Regidrago will have a CP of 1699 in normal weather conditions and 2124 in boosted conditions.

Happy raiding, fellow trainers!
