Hareta's Regigigas (Japanese: ハレタのレジギガス Hareta's Regigigas) is a Pokémon owned by Hareta in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!.

While in the northern areas of Sinnoh, Hareta is put to a "test" by the Snowpoint City Gym Leader, Candice. Hareta was reluctant, because he wanted to just go fight Team Galactic, but Candice insisted that unless he passes this test, he will have no chance at all of defeating them. She sends out her three Pokémon, Regirock, Regice and Registeel, explaining that the "test" is to defeat two of them in a Double Battle. During the battle, Hareta's Riolu evolves into Lucario and defeats Regice and Regirock. Having passed the "test", Candice determines that Hareta is capable enough to be taken to try to catch Regigigas at the Snowpoint Temple.

Regigigas activating Slow Start

After being awoken by the other three Legendary golems, Regigigas is off to a Slow Start, but soon takes out all three Regis in a single strike. Candice wonders whether she may have been a bit reckless in allowing something this powerful be awoken, but Hareta replies that he'll be fine. During the battle, Regigigas seems almost impervious to anything thrown at it; however, Hareta continues on. Eventually Hareta realizes that Regigigas isn't the viciously dangerous monster it's made out to be; rather, it's just like him. All it really wants are fierce battles. However, due to its immense power, any time it got serious, everyone else became afraid of it. Instead it came here to sleep where it wouldn't harm others. Hareta invites it to come along with him to help in the fierce battles ahead, water beginning to trickle into the room as Piplup (who was earlier smashed through a wall with Hareta) returns with a large wave which everyone rides back to the exit.

After its capture, Regigigas isn't seen again until it competes in the battle against Mitsumi at Team Galactic HQ, its Slow Start disposed of thanks to Kadabra's Skill Swap, allowing it to move as full speed from the start. It is one of Hareta's only two Pokémon to last the entire battle, helping to finish it up with the "Piplup and Regigigas Hang Ten Surf". After this, it was finally unable to battle any longer.

The next time Hareta uses Regigigas is at Mt. Coronet, where it is defeated at the Spear Pillar by a single Roar of Time from Dialga, who is under Cyrus's control.

It is also later used in Hareta's battles against Flint and Koya at the Pokémon League.
