Regice, Registeel, and Regirock
Legendary titans is a term used to refer to the group of Legendary Pokémon consisting of Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Regieleki, and Regidrago. The 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. They are the slowest of all Legendary Pokémon with the exception of Regidrago who has average Speed and Regieleki who is the fastest of all Pokémon.
In the anime and outside Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, they appeared to be somewhat less important than the previous two trios, even being trained, in Poké Balls, no less, by Brandon, while the Legendary birds are said to cause a cataclysm if even one is captured (as happened in the second movie) and the beasts are unable to be captured by conventional means.
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 from an icy mountain, rocks, magma, pure electric energy, and crystallized dragon energy in its image. Regigigas was apparently worshiped at one time, alongside the Hoenn titans, by ancient people. Due to it being so powerful, Regigigas was sealed away in the basement of the Snowpoint Temple, while the ones 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. Regieleki and Regidrago were sealed in the Split-Decision Ruins located in the Crown Tundra due to fearing the destruction and terror they have caused the ancient people.
Base stat comparison
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.
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 obtainable in the Rock Peak Ruins on Route 228, Regice is obtainable in the Iceberg Ruins in Mt. Coronet and Registeel is obtainable in the Iron Ruins on Iron Island.
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
The original three Legendary titans are obtainable in the Underground Ruins. However, to access their rooms, special keys are required to enter. The Rock Peak Key for Regirock is obtained automatically 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. To catch all three titans in one game, the corresponding version-exclusive key must be transferred through the Unova Link, so that one game has all three keys.
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon
Any of the three Legendary titans may be found in the Ultra Space Wilds by following a yellow Ultra Wormhole to the Cave World during the Ultra Warp Ride minigame.
Pokémon Sword and Shield
All three of the original Legendary titans are obtainable in Ruins dotted about the Crown Tundra, with the player having to fill out clues. However, there is one special Ruin where the two other Legendary titans, Regieleki and Regidrago, can be found. Once the player collects the original three and filled out the clues corresponding to the three, they may obtain their choice of either. In order to be able to catch the titans, the pattern on the floor in the ruins must be lit up, and the player interacts with the statues. In the case for Regieleki and Regidrago, the pattern is a combination of both, and the player is to mark the pattern of the titan of their choice. Once the titan is encountered, the tiles that were not part of the Pokémon's pattern are permanently dimmed, even if the player ran away from or defeated the titan.

On defeat, the player will receive the Rock Part, Ice Part, and Steel Part, which not only can be used separately to recruit the titans, but can be combined to create the Music Box, an item which can cause Mew to appear randomly in Buried Relic.
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.
The legendary titans each appear as bosses in Colossal Forest. Regirock is the boss of Stage 1, Regice is the boss of Stage 2, and Registeel is the boss of Stage 3. Their trio master, Regigigas, is the boss of the subsequent stage, Stage 4.
