Registeel (Japanese: レジスチル Registeel) is a Template:Type2 legendary Pokémon.

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

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

Biology

Physiology

The top-half of Registeel's body is spherical and gray with a black stripe running down where its "face" is. Registeel's face consists of seven dots in a hexagon formation. Registeel has black arms with three fingers each. Registeel has cylindrical legs. While Registeel has been classified as a Template:Type2 Pokémon, its body is actually made of a material that is actually harder than any known metal on this planet. Registeel's body has also shown some flexibility as well.

Gender differences

Registeel is a genderless species.

Special abilities

The steel that Registeel's body is made of is incredibly sturdy that nothing can even scratch it. Even though the metal appears incredibly durable and stiff, it is surprisingly flexible.

Behavior

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Nobody knows what Registeel eats, or if it even eats anything at all. It has no visible mouth with which to eat, however.

In the anime

Registeel in the anime

Registeel made an appearance with Regice and Regirock in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. The legendary golems were guardians of the Tree of Beginning. Registeel first attacked Team Rocket, but when they tried to flee, it attacked Ash and his friends too. After everyone was saved by Mew, it, together with Regice and Regirock, turned away.

Ash battled against Brandon's Registeel in Overjoyed!. It also appeared again in Pace - The Final Frontier! along with Regirock where they blasted off Team Rocket.

Brandon used Registeel again in his battle with Paul. It battled with Paul's Magmar and easily took out his Nidoking.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG186 Registeel May's Pokédex Registeel, the Iron Pokémon. Its body is harder than any metal found upon this planet. Its body is also hollow, and it's food source remains a mystery.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.
Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP128 Registeel Dawn's Pokédex Registeel, the Iron Pokémon. Because Registeel's body has been tempered by underground pressure for thousands of years, its body cannot be scratched.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Registeel debuted near the end of the Ruby & Sapphire chapter, when Drake was attempted to open the Ancient Tomb. Together, Steven and Sapphire created a team of four Beldum and Sapphire's Relicanth and Wailord, thus opening up the chamber containing Registeel, as well as the other two golems. Registeel used Superpower to stop Groudon and Kyogre from spreading destruction. After the battle, it and the other two Regis, left weak and powerless, traveled to the mountains, where they were later caught by Brandon shortly before the opening ceremony of the Battle Frontier.

Brandon used Registeel first in his battle with Emerald, where it squared off against the Hitmonchan the boy borrowed from Crystal. Though Registeel took considerable damage from the accumulation of many Fire Punches and was eventually beaten by a strong Sky Uppercut attack, it managed to cause its opponent to faint as well with a clever Toxic maneuver. It hasn't been seen since.

Trivia

European DP sprite
  • In the European (excluding UK & Ireland) versions of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Registeel's sprite was edited because of its arm. The arm's original position is reminiscent of the greeting of the Nazis. In Pokémon Platinum, the sprite was changed for all regions to the continental European variation (this change was retained in HeartGold and SoulSilver).
  • As a pure Template:Type2 it has eleven resistances and one immunity, the second highest number among all Pokémon, second only to Magnemite and its evolutions. Other Pokémon who share this number of resistances and immunity are Mawile, Empoleon, Dialga and the Giaru line.
  • In Pokémon Ranger, Registeel is the only of the three Regis that has a Field Move. The other two have a Poké Assist instead. Registeel could be used on a boulder near its chamber to find a Dugtrio.
  • Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are the only Pokémon with Explosion as a starting move.
  • In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there is an unobtainable Registeel Doll programmed into the game. It may have been intended to be obtained with the e-Reader.
  • Registeel and Probopass both have the highest base Special Defense of all Template:Type2 Pokémon.
  • Registeel is the only legendary golem without a stat higher than the other members of the trio. Regirock has the highest Attack and Defense, while Regice has the highest Special Attack and Special Defense. In this way, Registeel is the balanced member of the trio, as all three have equal HP and Speed.

Origin

Registeel 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

Registeel's name is the combination of the words regius, which is Latin for royal, and steel.
