The Legendary titans in the anime

Legendary titans[1] is a term used to refer to the group of Legendary Pokémon consisting of Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Regieleki, and Regidrago. They are also known as Legendary Giants in The Crown Tundra. Fan terms include Legendary golems and Regis. They were also previously referred to as the Regi trio or the Titan trio before the introductions of Regieleki and Regidrago in The Crown Tundra.

Unlike previous Legendary groups, the titans share very similar names, and their types are further estranged from the original Fire, Ice, and Electric that the birds take on (two of the beasts share types with the birds, and two of the titans do as well). Like them, however, the Legendary titans have a master (and like the beasts, a creator) in Regigigas.

Each has seven dots for eyes, arranged in a different pattern, similar to the braille that is connected to their legend. Unlike the birds and beasts, the titans do not have Pressure as their Ability, though the original three titans do share the Ability Clear Body.

History

The Legendary titans have relatively concrete lore compared to other Legendary Pokémon. Long ago, Regigigas is said to have pulled the continents into place, and then created the titans in its image from various materials (an icy mountain, rocks, magma, pure electric energy, and crystallized dragon energy). Regigigas was apparently worshiped by ancient people at one point, as were the original three titans. Regigigas was later deemed too powerful and sealed away in the basement of the Snowpoint Temple, while the three titans it created were spirited to the far-off Hoenn region and locked away in three stone structures, which were then sealed themselves. A message was left in braille to whomever would come to discover the Sealed Chamber, whose only access was via an underwater cavern, in the hopes that one day the Pokémon could be tamed. Separately, Regieleki and Regidrago were sealed in the Crown Tundra's Split-Decision Ruins to prevent them from causing any further destruction and terror.

In the core series games

Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire

In the Hoenn Generation III games and the remakes, the player must first unlock the tombs which hold the three titans by solving the puzzle in the Sealed Chamber. Only after doing this will they then be obtainable. Regirock is found in the Desert Ruins on Route 111. To encounter Regirock, the player must walk two steps to the right, two steps down and then use StrengthRSORAS or walk two steps to the left, then two steps down and use Rock SmashE. Regice is found in the Island Cave on Route 105, and to encounter it, the player must wait two minutes in front of the signRSORAS or walk a counterclockwise lap around the walls of the caveE. Registeel is found in the Ancient Tomb on Route 120, and it is necessary to go to the middle of the room and use FlyRSORAS or FlashE to open its cave.

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl

The original three Legendary titans are only obtainable in Pokémon Platinum if the player has a fateful encounter Regigigas in their party and has entered the Hall of Fame. Regirock is present in the Rock Peak Ruins on Route 228, Regice is present in the Iceberg Ruins in Mount Coronet, and Registeel is present in the Iron Ruins on Iron Island. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Regigigas can be encountered in the basement of Snowpoint Temple if the player has the other three titans in their party. In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Regigigas is again obtainable in Snowpoint Temple if the player has the other titans, though said other titans can now be encountered by using Discovery Slates in Ramanas Park's Discovery Room.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, the original three Legendary titans are obtainable in the Underground Ruins. Normally, the door in the Underground Ruins leads to a chamber where none of the titans are found; however, if one of three special keys is activated, the door will instead lead to the chamber of the titan corresponding to that key. The Rock Peak Key for Regirock is obtained immediately after the player enters the Hall of Fame; after catching Regirock, the player will obtain either the Iron Key for RegisteelB2 or the Iceberg Key for RegiceW2. The opposite version's key may be obtained by transferring it with Unova Link from a game that has it, allowing all three titans to be encountered in one game. Regigigas can be encountered in the lowest floor of Twist Mountain if the other three titans are all in the party.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, each of the Legendary titans may be encountered in the Ultra Space Wilds by following a yellow Ultra Wormhole to the Cave World during the Ultra Warp Ride. Regigigas only appears here in Pokémon Ultra Moon, though the original three are obtainable in both versions.

Pokémon Sword and Shield

The Legendary titans appear in The Crown Tundra in Pokémon Sword and Shield. They reside in ruins dotted about the Crown Tundra, which cannot be entered until Legendary Clue 2 is obtained. The original three each have individual ruins; however, Regieleki and Regidrago share the same ruin, in which the player must select one of the two to obtain. Each ruin's door is closed unless a certain requirement is met, hinted at in writing on the doors. These requirements are: having the first Pokémon in the party hold an Everstone for the Rock Peak Ruins, where Regirock is encountered; having a Cryogonal be the walking Pokémon for the Iceberg Ruins, where Regice is encountered; whistling at the door for the Iron Ruins, where Registeel is encountered; and having Regirock, Regice, and Registeel be in the party for the Split-Decision Ruins, where either Regieleki or Regidrago is encountered. The Split-Decision Ruins may only be entered after the titans of the other three ruins have been caught, even if the three were traded or transferred from another game. Inside each of the ruins, after the pattern on the floor has been lit up by running over it, interacting with the statue will cause the titan to appear; in the case of the Split-Decision Ruins, the player must mark the pattern corresponding to the titan of their choice, and after the titan is encountered, the tiles that were not part of its pattern are permanently dimmed, even if it was defeated or fled from. If Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Regieleki, and Regidrago are all in the party, a usually dormant Pokémon Den in the Giant's Bed will activate, containing a Max Raid Battle without allies against a Dynamaxed Regigigas; notably, this Regigigas is level 100.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, & Sky

In Explorers of Time, Darkness, & Sky, the Aegis Cave houses all three of the titans as well as Regigias. The player's team must have the right Unown stones that spell out each typing of the Pokémon (specifically, ICE, ROCK, and STEEL) in order to enter each titan's chamber. If the party does not have these stones, they must enter that titan's cave in order to collect more Unown stones. After beating all three Pokémon, the party immediately heads to Regigigas' Chamber to battle it.
