Regigigas (Japanese: レジギガス Regigigas) is a Template:Type2 legendary Pokémon. It is the master of Hoenn's legendary golems.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

It comes to life only when Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are gathered. Therefore, it requires the three to be in the player's party to awaken it within Snowpoint Temple, where it sleeps. It still appears on the map if they are absent, but does not awaken and the player regards it as a statue.

Biology

Physiology

Regigigas shares several traits with the Regis. For instance, it has seven dot-like "eyes" arranged in a specific pattern. The braille pattern is Regigigas's way of showing emotion (red if angry, blue if sad, etc.). It has six spots that are apart from its eyes, which seem to be gemstones. These gemstones seem to represent the Regis, with the red gems representing Regirock, the blue gems representing Regice and the silver gems representing Registeel. It has a golem-like shape and is primarily white in coloration, possessing long arms, with three fairly human-like white fingers, and short legs. It has large yellow-colored bands on its shoulders and wrists, with a sloping section on its chest that appears to be its head also being yellow. Its body is covered in black stripes, and it has moss growing in its back and feet, which may indicate it has been asleep for a long time.

Gender differences

Regigigas is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Regigigas has the ability Slow Start, which causes Regigigas's Attack and Speed to be halved the first five turns. According to its Pokédex entries, the legends say that its extremely high attack stat, combined with its colossal strength, enables it to move continents.

Regigigas is capable of communicating via telepathy.

Regigigas is also capable of controlling the legendary golems, even if they already belong to a Trainer.

Behavior

When Regigigas is disturbed on its slumber on Snowpoint Temple, it goes on a rampage and shoots powerful Hyper Beams. But when it is befriended, it is calm and gentle, as seen in Pillars of Friendship.

Habitat

It resides in the Snowpoint Temple, having done so for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. According to the braille in the Generation III games, it was sealed away in order to protect people, and three keys (the legendary golems) were created so that only one with the power of Regirock, Regice, and Registeel would be able to catch it.

In the anime

Regigigas in the anime

Regigigas appeared in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. In the movie, it lives in a temple in the mountains of Gracidea. It had been asleep for centuries, for so long that moss began to grow on its body. However, when Zero entered the Reverse World and began shattering pillars of ice within it, the glacier in front of Regigigas' temple suffered catastrophic explosions and began moving. This disturbed the great titan's slumber, rousing it into action.

When Dawn's Buneary and Swinub failed to stop the glacier with the help of a large group of wild Pokémon, Regigigas appeared in the command of a herd of dozens of Mamoswine and together, they began pushing on the glacier to hold it back. Though at first they managed to still its movement and move it back slightly, in the end they too failed. It was only when Giratina healed the broken ice pillars in the Reverse World that the glacier stopped. Regigigas returned to its temple at the end of the movie, where it is seen using Hyper Beam on Team Rocket during the credits.

Another Regigigas appeared in Pillars of Friendship at Snowpoint Temple. J wanted to steal it so it was rudely awakened by her. She shattered the pillars of ice, rock, and steel surrounding it and then she used her Salamence's Flamethrower on it. It went on a rampage after, using Hyper Beam on practically anything. It even used Confuse Ray to control Pyramid King Brandon's set of legendary golems to help it. At the end of the episode, it healed Brandon and his golems using Hidden Power to restore them from their petrification. It was then taken back to the temple to return to its slumber.

Trivia

  • Due to its ability reducing its potential, Regigigas has more in common with Slaking than it does with other legendaries. They share the same base stat total of 670, the same base Attack stat of 160, and abilities that limit their power.
  • Although it is thought to be unique, it is possible to see and fight another, under the ownership of Palmer along with a Heatran and Cresselia in the 49th consecutive battle in the Battle Tower. Riley uses one too, confirming that Regigigas is, like Cresselia, Heatran, Shaymin and the other legendary golems, a slightly more common legendary species than that of others.
  • It is the only Pokémon who can learn TMs that cannot learn TM17 (Protect) or TM44 (Rest). This is probably to prevent people from countering its own ability by avoiding damage or healing itself.
  • Regigigas is the only one of the Regis not to have its type in its name. Regirock is a Template:Type2, Regice is an Template:Type2, and Registeel is Template:Type2.
    • Regigigas is also the only one of the Regis that does not use the remix of the legendary golem battle theme in Platinum. Instead, it uses the legendary battle theme, much like in Diamond and Pearl.
  • Due to their typings, Regigigas and the other legendary golems all share a common weakness to Template:Type2 moves.
  • Regigigas and Slaking have the highest base stat in Attack of all Template:Type2 Pokémon. They have the third highest attack of all Pokémon, after Deoxys's Attack Forme and Rampardos.
  • Despite being called the Colossal Pokémon, Regigigas is only the fourteenth tallest Pokémon and only the eighth heaviest.
  • Regigigas is one of only two Normal-type legendary Pokémon (the other is Arceus, but its type can change).
  • By hacking to obtain Cherish Balls, it is possible to trick the game into opening Rock Peak, Iceberg, and Iron Ruins: by catching the in-game Regigigas in a Cherish Ball, the game thinks the Regigigas was obtained at a Nintendo event.
  • An event Regigigas unlocks the Regi trio to be caught in normal gameplay in hidden caves across the Sinnoh region.
  • Regigigas' strength is exaggerated in the legend that it towed the continents with ropes. However, in its first appearence in the movie Giratina and the Sky Warrior, Regigigas failed to push back a glacier even with the help of many Mamoswine, despite its legendary strength. This could be due to its ability though, as it has just awoken when it went to stop the glacier.
  • "Regi" is latin for king or royalty and purple is considered the color of royalty. Alternate colored Regigigas is probably colored purple to further relate Regigigas with these aspects.
  • Regigigas also holds the records for the Highest and Lowest Leveled Legendary met in any Pokemon Game at Level 100 and Level 1 respectively.

Origin

This Pokémon is based on the golems of Hebrew legend. The legends cast them as servants of higher powers and are said to have writing on their heads. When the writing is removed, the creature would be weakened.

Name origin

The first part of its name is Regi, kings or to rule, govern or control, or possibly regius, royal. The last part of its name, gigas, means giant. This means it is the King of the Giants.
