Brandon's Regis are a trio of legendary Pokémon that belong to Pyramid King Brandon.

In the anime

In the anime they are Brandon's most powerful Pokémon, with Regirock and Registeel using their power alone to defeat Ash twice. However, Regice was defeated later in Ash's rematch with Brandon. During Brandon's battle with Paul, each defeated all of his Pokémon one by one. In Pillars of Friendship!, they were used to help protect Regigigas from J.

Brandon's Regirock (Japanese: ジンダイのレジロック Jindai's Regirock) was the first Pokémon of the trio to be seen with Brandon.

In Battling the Enemy Within! Ash and friends fall into some underground ruins by the Battle Pyramid. Inside the ruins Ash picks up a Pikachu statue which causes a boulder to roll towards them. They eventually run into Brandon who calls out Regirock to use Focus Punch and destroy the boulder. Regirock destroys the boulder and Brandon recalls it.

After Ash is corrupted by the King of Pokélantis, Brandon decides to battle Ash to save him. His choice is Regirock, while Ash goes with Sceptile. Regirock's key strategy is to defend, while using Lock-On to make sure its attacks hit the opponent. Although Regirock barely moved during the battle, it has both strong Attack and Defense capabilities. Despite Sceptile being faster (and a type-advantage), Regirock ultimately wins the battle.

Regirock was next seen in Pace - The Final Frontier! alongside Registeel where the two of them confronted Team Rocket and used their Hyper Beam attacks to send Team Rocket blasting off.

Regirock reappeared in A Pyramiding Rage! along with Brandon where it defeated Paul's Hariyama, Electabuzz, Ursaring and Magmar. It was revealed in the same episode that Brandon used Regirock to defeat Reggie's Drapion which ultimately led to Reggie to become a Pokémon Breeder. It was also used with the other golems to battle a Regigigas at the Snowpoint Temple in Pillars of Friendship!.

Brandon's Registeel (Japanese: ジンダイのレジスチル Jindai's Registeel) is the second Pokémon that was shown to be owned by Brandon. He obtained it prior to Overjoyed!.

In Overjoyed! Ash returned to the Battle Pyramid to challenge Brandon. Brandon revealed that he would be using Registeel in the battle. The next day Ash sent his Torkoal against Registeel. Registeel was shown to be an extremely mobile Pokémon, as it was seen charging at Torkoal. Although Torkoal clearly had the type advantage, Registeel had incredible defensive capabilities and was able to evenly match Torkoal. Brandon's main strategy with Registeel seemed to be offensive and defensive combined into one. Although Torkoal managed to put up a strong fight and match Registeel in power, Registeel ultimately proved victorious.

Registeel was next seen in Pace - The Final Frontier! alongside Regirock where the two of them confronted Team Rocket and used their Hyper Beam attacks to sending Team Rocket blasting off.

Registeel appeared in A Pyramiding Rage! along with Brandon where it was used in a battle against Paul where it battled his Magmar and defeated his Nidoking. In Pillars of Friendship!, it was used to battle against a Regigigas in the Snowpoint Temple

Brandon's Regice (Japanese: ジンダイのレジアイス Jindai's Regice) was the last Pokémon caught by Brandon before his final battle with Ash in Pace - The Final Frontier!.

Brandon captured Regice in between Overjoyed! and Gathering the Gang of Four! while searching in an unnamed ruin. Regice was the last Pokémon Brandon sent out against Ash's Pikachu in his 4-on-4 battle for the Brave Symbol.

Brandon used a strategy of freezing the field with Ice Beam to speed up Regice's movements and to do the complete opposite with Pikachu's. While Pikachu did land some hits with Thunderbolt and Iron Tail, it proved to be ineffective, as Regice trapped Pikachu in pillars of ice created by Ice Beam and then used Rest to fully recover any damage caused. 

Regice then fired an Ice Beam towards Pikachu, completely freezing it. But with the last of its energy, Pikachu broke free and delivered a final blow to Regice using its Volt Tackle.

It reappeared in A Pyramiding Rage! where it battled Paul's Ursaring and defeated his Lairon. It was also used with other golems to battle a Regigigas at Snowpoint Temple in Pillars of Friendship!.

Brandon and his Pokémon in the manga

Regirock, Regice and Registeel first appeared as wild Pokémon in the Ruby & Sapphire chapter of Pokémon Adventures. Steven sent Drake, Sidney, and Glacia to capture them so that they could be used to help contain the battle between Kyogre and Groudon in Sootopolis City.

In VS Sudowoodo, Brandon captured the three Pokémon, who were weak following the battle in Sootopolis. He later used them to battle Emerald in the Battle Pyramid. During this fight, Regirock started off delivering a powerful Superpower attack that left Emerald's Sceptile struggling, and right after the boy had Sceptile attempt a Leech Seed, Regirock used Explosion and knocked both of them out. Just as Emerald had the Hitmonchan he borrowed from Crystal deliver a finishing blow on Registeel with a powerful Sky Uppercut following a barrage of Fire Punches, Brandon reveals that he had the massive golem use Toxic out the get-go, causing Hitmonchan to faint. With just one Pokémon left on either side and Regice reigning supreme, it seemed Brandon had the battle won, but Emerald then reveals a secret of his own, and Sceptile is revitalized by a Revive, allowing it to finish Regice with a surprise Iron Tail from behind. The same golem was then seen in the first confrontation against Guile Hideout.
