Weird Mother 3 connection?

Does anyoen think that the Regi Trio look very similar to the Barrier Trio from Mother 3? They're a trio of 3 golems with dots for eyes. I'm not sure where to even discuss this, as it would be Mother 3 paying homage to Pokemon. But it's such a weird thing to make an homage to.

Are they really called that? I've only heard them referred to as "The regis"-Birdboy2000

They are golems, that's correct. evkl 03:10, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I dunno, I call them Gits. Each one of thier nicknames on my Sapphire has a profanity because of how stressed I got trying to capture them. - Ferret

The beings they were designed to resemble were the mythical Golems, which have little relation to Golem. evkl 10:33, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I've heard them referred to as the Llegendary Trashcans and the Regis. surskitty 10:35, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

For the sake of argument, I'll mention now that rex and regis are both singular in Latin. (However, rex is nominative, regis is genitive.) The nominative plural is reges. (If you've ever wondered why the plural and possessive as so similar in English, well, same thing applies here. Blame the Proto-Indo-Europeans.) - 振霖T 13:32, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

About Area Leader Axley

Hey, that was a brilliant observation. I think it's possible that Flygon is there because one of its pre-evolved forms can learn Dig by leveling up. Remember Dig is also needed in the Sealed Chamber. --Johans 16:45, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Rephrasing

The line "Unlike previous trios, the golems share much more similar names, at the cost of having their types be estranged from the standard..." is somewhat odd. How does having similar names cost them their potential types? How is Regifire and Regilectricity hard to do? Besides, the Regis are golems. Golems are constructs of materials by humans and somehow magically animated. I can't see anyone stacking fire (well, Diablo II did) or electricity into a golem... rock, ice and steel are much more conventional building blocks, as each are used in the construction of buildings. The lake trio doesn't fall under the standard types for trios either, but they don't have any cost associated with their names. I just find it wierd is all... --ZellMurasame 04:48, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, they were pretty much the first trio to have their types not the (then) standard Fire/Electric/Water-Ice, and the first trio whose names were similar. In fact... they're the only trio to do that. It's not the fact that their names cost them their types, it's just that their names are more similar, however, unlike the others, their types aren't the Gen I/II pattern. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 11:16, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Which means that the phrasing of sentence needs to be revised, since there is no direct correlation between the two facts; both are simply examples of diverging from previous trios. --Unown Lord 11:46, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Well Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres are similar names; they each contain a Latin whole number in sequence, corresponding to its order in the Pokédex. I guess you can't really say they diverge from the norm since they were the originals, but the name and type differences of the Regis is really just a reference to their being golems, not one as a result of the other. I just think this line needs to be rewritten, but I'm not sure how to do so without just saying something to the effect of "Unlike the previous trios, the golems share more similar names and their types diverge from the standard..." --ZellMurasame 15:22, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
I have already rewritten it as follows: "Unlike previous trios, the golems share much more similar names; additionally, their types are estranged from the standard Fire, Water/Ice and Electric trio." --Unown Lord 15:43, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
Their types diverge from the standard? The birds are ice, electric and fire. The beasts types diverge 33% from the "standard" only using electric and fire again. Regis have 66% different types used, only repeating ice. Where is the standard there? I only see a standard of changing a type or 2 as to get different combinations every generation instead of using the same three types over and over. Saiph charon 21:31, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
Besides they probably are that type to be more similar to the real golems. Both are made out of durable, hard, common materials.Shadow1337 22:08, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

regigigas

in regigigas' pokedex entry, it states that it is made from rocks, ice, and magma! i don't see registeel being made out of magma!- unsigned comment from vik0z0z (talkcontribs)

Who said anything about involving the other regis in that?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 00:13, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
And doesn't magma have melted metal in it? YinYang 16:55, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

about the individual chambers in RSE

Do the requirements to unlock each individual regi change between the different games? I'm replaying Ruby right now, and in order to unlock Regice, I had to wait two minutes for the chamber to open. With Registeel, I used fly not flash. And with Regirock, I had to take two steps right, two down and use strength instead of rock smash. Is this a difference between Ruby/Sapphire with Emerald. There was the whole reversal of Relicanth and Wailord mentioned in the trivia section. Inspyre 16:01, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

The steps to open the chambers are different in Emerald than in RS, yes. It states the different steps on the respective chamber's articles. ▫▪Ťïňắ 16:45, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Trivia

"The trio can be caught in Pokémon Platinum, where a remixed version of the music used in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald is played. There are three other instances in the main series that a legendary trio or one of its members can be caught in a place that is not their native region (one of the legendary beasts can be caught in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the legendary birds are available for capture in Platinum, roaming Sinnoh, and Moltres is available for capture in Johto's Mt. Silver)."

Shouldn't Latios and Latias in Kanto and the weather trio in Johto (both in HG/SS) be mentioned as well? --Locrian 13:09, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Oops, I guess Latios and Latias wouldn't fit into the whole "trio" thing. How silly of me. --Locrian 13:12, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Emerald Encounters

Shouldn't it be written how you encounter them in Pokemon Emerald since how they are encountered in Ruby/Sapphire and how they are encountered in Emerald are completely different. Frozen Fennec 23:26, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Statue types.

I placed:'(the only Pokémon types of which statues can be made)' on the page right after the mentioning of the types (see history please). But it was removed as it has nothing to do with the rest of the article? Does anyone of you know where to place this line: 'their types are the only Pokémon types of which statues can be made'? Nickvang (talk) 23:10, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Thinking about it some more, I'm not even sure I'd agree that it's even factually accurate. You claim that they're the only types of which statues can be made, but after all, topiary is basically the art of making grass statues, and clay (which is used to make terracotta statues) is usually associated with the Ground type, which doesn't have a corresponding golem. And if you'd like to offer an attempt at arguing that it's possible to make a statue out of "normal", be my guest. (Yeah, I know Regigigas isn't included in this article, but it's part of the scope of the topic and really deserves to be included about as much as Keldeo deserves to be part of the Swords of Justice article. But I digress; that's a discussion for another day.) Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 23:57, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

The regi made of clay wouldn't have the name 'Regiground' as it is not ground in its most 'typical' form, so it would be 'Regiclay'. And 'Regigrass' would not be able to exist as an ancient golem, as it would rot. And Regigigas, yeah... ...the normal type can mean many different things, sometimes it is able to make a statue from and sometimes not. My conclusion is: those types are the only types you could make a statue from in its most 'TYPICAL' form AND can be a statue for FOREVER. Nickvang (talk) 17:42, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
