Regirock (Japanese: レジロック Regirock) is a Rock-type legendary Pokémon.

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

It is, along with Regice and Registeel, one of the three legendary golems of Hoenn.

Biology

Physiology

Regirock is a large golem made of rocks. Regirock has a pattern on its face that resembles a capital letter "H". 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. Regirock can also inexplicably 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

If Regirock’s body is damaged in battle, it is said to seek out suitable rocks on its own to repair itself.

Habitat

Regirock was sealed in Hoenn's ancient ruins. Other places where it has been found include the Rock Peak Ruins, Buried Relic, Aegis Cave, and Underground Ruins.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

As Regirock has no sign of a brain or heart, it is possible that it does not have a stomach either or it otherwise may have no need to eat in a conventional way.

In the anime

Regirock in the anime

Major appearances

Brandon's Regirock

Regirock was 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.

Brandon used his Regirock again in A Pyramiding Rage! in his battle against Paul, easily taking out Paul's Hariyama, Electabuzz, Ursaring, and Magmar.

Regirock appeared again in Pillars of Friendship! Regigigas used Confuse Ray on Regirock, Regice and Registeel and all four Pokémon went on a rampage. All the rampaging Pokémon (except Regigigas) faded away, and when J used her weapon to catch the immobilized Regigigas and Regirock, Regice and Registeel and eventually Pyramid King Brandon all jumped in front of J's firing range and were frozen. Regigigas eventually brought them back to life with Hidden Power.

Regirock (M08)

Regirock made an appearance with Regice and Registeel in the eighth Pokémon movie, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. The trio of legendary golems were guardians of the Tree of Beginning, and attacked Ash and his friends. It was the first of the three to do this. In the end Regirock and the other members of its trio turned away and kept on with protecting the Tree of Beginning.

Minor appearances

Regirock made a brief cameo along with the other members of its trio in the beginning of The Rise of Darkrai.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Regirock debuted near the end of the Ruby & Sapphire chapter, when Sidney was attempted to open the Desert Ruins. Together, Steven and Sapphire created a team of four Beldum and Sapphire's Relicanth and Wailord, thus opening up the chamber containing Regirock, as well as the other two golems. The trio used Superpower to stop the effects of the clash between Groudon and Kyogre spreading beyond Sootopolis. After the battle, it and the other two Regis, left weak and powerless, traveled to the mountains, where they were later caught by Brandon.

Brandon used Regirock first in his battle with Emerald, where it found Sceptile's Leech Seed attack to be of minor annoyance and knocked it out right away with its Explosion attack. However, while the Pyramid King's attention was focused on Jirachi's light coming from the horizon, Emerald was able to revitalize the fainted Sceptile with a Revive and win the battle.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Regirock, along with the other two legendary golems, are seen under the possession of Candice. She uses them against Hareta to test his worthiness to challenge Regigigas.

Trivia

  • Regirock is tied with Regice for the highest single stat of any legendary Pokémon with its 200-point Defense stat. Regice's is its Special Defense.
  • Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are the only Pokémon to have Explosion as a starting move.
  • In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there is an unobtainable Regirock Doll programmed into the game. It may have been intended to be obtained with the e-Reader.
  • In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Regirock was the only member of the legendary golems not to be used by a Trainer that specialized in its type. Regice was used by Glacia, an Ice-type Trainer, and Registeel was used by Steven Stone, a Steel-type Trainer, while Regirock was used by Sidney and Drake, a Dark-type Trainer and Dragon-type Trainer, respectively.
  • Regirock's in-game footprint resembles a scarab beetle, a real life insect that was considered sacred by ancient Egyptians, possibly alluding to Regirock's desert habitat. Scarab beetles also represent the rebirth of ancient Egypt.

Origin

Regirock 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. The legendary golems' typing (and overall appearance, with Regirock being just some unpolished rocks put on each other) could have been a reference to the three major ages in history, with Regirock being Stone Age.

Name origin

Regirock is a combination of regis (Latin for royal) and rock.
