Regirock (Japanese: レジロック Regirock) is a Template:Type2 legendary Pokémon.

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

Biology

Physiology

Regirock is a large golem made of rocks. Regirock has a braille pattern on its face that resembles a capital letter "H". An interesting thing about Regirock is that the rocks it is made of come from several different places. The reason for this is that whenever it gets damaged in battle, it searches for rocks to repair itself with. This habit also contributes to Regirock's patchwork appearance. What is even stranger is that Regirock has no internal organs.

Gender differences

Regirock is genderless.

Special abilities

Regirock mostly knows Rock, Ground and Fighting-type attacks. For some odd reason, Regirock can learn Electrical attacks, more specifically the move Zap Cannon that it learns naturally. If Regirock is damaged, it can repair itself by building its body with rocks.

Behavior

Habitat

Regirock was sealed in Hoenn's ancient ruins.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Regirock made an appearance with Regice and Registeel in the 8th Pokémon movie, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. The trio of legendary golems were guardians of the Tree of Beginning.

Regirock was also used by Brandon in Battling the Enemy Within. He used it to battle Ash when he was being possessed by the King of Pokélantis.

Brandon's Regirock also made a brief appearance in Pace - The Final Frontier! along with Registeel where they blasted off Team Rocket.
