Brandon's legendary golems

Brandon's legendary golems are a trio of legendary Pokémon that belong to Pyramid King Brandon.

In the anime

In the anime they are Brandon's most powerful Pokémon, with Regirock and Registeel using their power alone to defeat Ash twice. However, Regice was defeated later in Ash's rematch with Brandon. During Brandon's battle with Paul, each defeated all of his Pokémon one by one. In Pillars of Friendship!, they were used to help protect Regigigas from J.

Brandon's Regirock (Japanese: ジンダイのレジロック Jindai's Regirock) was the first Pokémon of the trio to be seen with Brandon.

History

Advanced Generation series

In Battling the Enemy Within! Ash and friends fall into some underground ruins by the Battle Pyramid. Inside the ruins Ash picks up a Pikachu statue which causes a boulder to roll towards them. They eventually run into Brandon who calls out Regirock to use Focus Punch and destroy the boulder. Regirock destroys the boulder and Brandon recalls it.

After Ash is corrupted by the King of Pokélantis, Brandon decides to battle Ash to save him. His choice is Regirock, while Ash goes with Sceptile. Regirock's key strategy is to defend, while using Lock-On to make sure its attacks hit the opponent. Although Regirock barely moved during the battle, it has both strong Attack and Defense capabilities. Despite Sceptile being faster (and a type-advantage), Regirock ultimately wins the battle.

Regirock was next seen in Pace - The Final Frontier! alongside Registeel where the two of them confronted Team Rocket and used their Hyper Beam attacks to send Team Rocket blasting off.

Diamond & Pearl series

Regirock reappeared in A Pyramiding Rage! along with Brandon where it defeated Paul's Hariyama, Electabuzz, Ursaring and Magmar. It was revealed in the same episode that Brandon used Regirock to defeat Reggie's Drapion which ultimately led to Reggie becoming a Pokémon Breeder. It was also used with the other golems to battle a Regigigas at the Snowpoint Temple in Pillars of Friendship!.

Brandon's Registeel (Japanese: ジンダイのレジスチル Jindai's Registeel) is the second Pokémon that was shown to be owned by Brandon. He obtained it prior to Overjoyed!.

History

Advanced Generation series

In Overjoyed! Ash returned to the Battle Pyramid to challenge Brandon. Brandon revealed that he would be using Registeel in the battle. The next day Ash sent his Torkoal against Registeel. Registeel was shown to be an extremely mobile Pokémon, as it was seen charging at Torkoal. Although Torkoal clearly had the type advantage, Registeel had incredible defensive capabilities and was able to evenly match Torkoal. Brandon's main strategy with Registeel seemed to be offensive and defensive combined into one. Although Torkoal managed to put up a strong fight and match Registeel in power, Registeel ultimately proved victorious.

Registeel was next seen in Pace - The Final Frontier! alongside Regirock where the two of them confronted Team Rocket and used their Hyper Beam attacks to sending Team Rocket blasting off.

Diamond & Pearl series

Registeel appeared in A Pyramiding Rage! along with Brandon where it was used in a battle against Paul where it battled his Magmar and defeated his Nidoking. In Pillars of Friendship!, it was used to battle against a Regigigas in the Snowpoint Temple

Brandon's Regice (Japanese: ジンダイのレジアイス Jindai's Regice) was the last Pokémon caught by Brandon before his final battle with Ash in Pace - The Final Frontier!.

History

Advanced Generation series

Brandon captured Regice in between Overjoyed! and Gathering the Gang of Four! while searching in an unnamed ruin. Regice was the last Pokémon Brandon sent out against Ash's Pikachu in his 4-on-4 battle for the Brave Symbol.

Brandon used a strategy of freezing the field with Ice Beam to speed up Regice's movements and to do the complete opposite with Pikachu's. While Pikachu did land some hits with Thunderbolt and Iron Tail, it proved to be ineffective, as Regice trapped Pikachu in pillars of ice created by Ice Beam and then used Rest to fully recover any damage caused. 

Regice then fired an Ice Beam towards Pikachu, completely freezing it. But with the last of its energy, Pikachu broke free and delivered a final blow to Regice using his Volt Tackle.

Diamond & Pearl series

It also appeared in a flashback in Pika and Goliath!.

It reappeared in A Pyramiding Rage! where it battled Paul's Ursaring and defeated his Lairon. It was also used with other golems to battle a Regigigas at Snowpoint Temple in Pillars of Friendship!.

Personality and characteristics

All three of the legendary golems are considered to be very loyal towards Brandon as their Trainer. However, it was temporarily lost when Regigigas used Confuse Ray on them, which made the trio turn on Brandon. When Brandon blocked the attack from J's hand gun that could turn anything it touches into stone, the golems regained their loyalty. In most of the battles each of the golems participated in, they had no trouble taking on any opponent including the ones with the type advantage as seen in their battles against Ash and Paul, where they single-handedly defeated all of the latter's Pokémon in A Pyramiding Rage!.

Brandon's Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in Pokémon Adventures

Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are three Pokémon that were sought after by Steven Stone in preparation for the upcoming battle against Groudon and Kyogre. After some difficulties, he manages to awaken them from their resting places with the help of the Blind boy and Sapphire. Once awakened, Regirock was partnered with Drake and Sidney, Regice was partnered with Phoebe and Glacia, while Steven teamed up with Wallace to control Registeel.

During the battle, the three Pokémon used Superpower to contain the destructive energy created by the clash between Groudon and Kyogre. After Groudon and Kyogre are defeated, the strain of controlling the three Pokémon causes Steven to die from exhaustion. With no one to control them, Regirock, Regice, and Registeel lashed out against their controllers and left to parts unknown.

In the Emerald chapter, Regirock, Regice, and Registeel were found and caught by Brandon for use in the Battle Frontier.

When Emerald challenged the Battle Pyramid, Regirock was the first to be sent out to face his Sceptile. During the battle, Regirock had its health sapped away by Leech Seed, so it countered by blowing itself up with Explosion, greatly damaging Sceptile. With Regirock knocking itself out in the process, Brandon switched with Registeel, who was sent out to face Emerald's borrowed Hitmonchan, Monlee. With his speed and super effective hits, Monlee was able to easily defeat Registeel, only to quickly fall by a Toxic attack.

The last to be used was Regice, who faced Emerald's borrowed Cubone, Bonee. Due to Regice's type, Bonee was at a disadvantage and was knocked out after a short time. Although confident that he had won their battle, Brandon was shocked to see that Sceptile had been revived in secret and defeated Regice with an Iron Tail, making Emerald the winner of the battle. In the Artisan Cave, Regice was used to attack Guile Hideout in order to get revenge for Noland's injuries. The attack did nothing to Guile, who simply swung his sword and sent Regice flying.

In the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter, it was revealed that three Pokémon were lent to Palmer at one point. Palmer took the Pokémon to the Snowpoint Temple, where he awakened and captured the legendary Pokémon Regigigas.
