Long ago, an ancient people sealed away three Pokémon in the Hoenn region, Regirock, Registeel and Regice. A world away, in the Sinnoh region, they built a temple housing the master of all the Regi Pokémon, Regigigas. Regigigas is a Normal-type Pokémon and called such because, well, Reginormal sounds stupid... and what is it made of anyway? This typeless colossus sleeps in plain view in Snowpoint Temple, and will only awaken for one who commands the three Hoenn Regis. For us, this means the other three Regis will need to be transferred from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald via Pal Park. Once under your sway, Regigigas is a monster with fearsome attributes. The only thing keeping this behemoth from destroying everything in its path is its own bulk, which makes it slow and vulnerable for a few turns at the start of battle.
