How do I catch Pokémon Go’s Regieleki? 

Currently, Pokémon Go Regieleki is only available through elite raids. These raids must be battled in person and you cannot use remote raid passes. Once you gather a raiding party, reach the location, and successfully battle Regieleki, you have a chance to catch the electric-type legendary.

Can I catch shiny Pokémon Go Regieleki? 

Currently, you cannot catch a shiny version of Regieleki in Pokémon Go. When you encounter one in elite raids, that Pokémon is shiny locked, so a shiny version can’t appear no matter how many raids you complete. Hopefully, Niantic may introduce a shiny version in the future.

Pokémon Go Regieleki counters 

Alright, trainers, elite raids are tough, so catching Regieleki is going to take some work. First of all, we recommend a battling party of at least six, maybe five at a push depending on your level and your Pokémon’s cp. Next, Regieleki is (naturally) an electric-type, so ground-type Pokémon are your best bets. Here are some ‘mons we recommend as Pokémon Go Regieleki counters.

Pokémon  Form Fast Move Charged Move
Groudon  Primal  Mud shot Precipice blades
Garchomp Regular Mud shot Earth power
Ursaluna Regular Tackle High horsepower
Rhyperior Regular Mud slap Earthquake
Landorus Therian Mud shot Earthquake
Exadrill Regular Mud slap Drill Run
Swampert Mega Mud Shot Earthquake
