Pokémon GO developer Niantic has announced that the Legendary Pokémon Regirock, Regice and Registeel will soon be available for the first time via Raid Battles. Regice is now available around the world from today, June 21, until July 19, 2018. Regirock and Registeel will follow at a later date during the summer. The official announcement from the development team is as follows:
Pokémon’s legendary year continues with three Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region harnessing their power to take over Raid Battles in Pokémon GO, starting with Regice on June 21!
Regice, the Iceberg Pokémon, has awakened from its slumber and will be the first to appear in Raid Battles across the world until July 19. This Ice-type Legendary Pokémon has a strong defense, but is weak to Fire-, Fighting-, Rock-, and Steel-type attacks.
The presence of this defensive powerhouse kicks off a summer of earth-shattering events, as Regirock and Registeel will also roar into Gyms worldwide!
Don’t miss this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it returns to another long slumber! Stay safe, and happy exploring!
