Regice is back in Pokemon Go for a limited time. This is his first appearance since 2020, so you’ll definitely want to find it, fight it, and catch it. Here is your guide on how to do exactly that.

But before we dive in, be sure to check out all of our other Pokemon Go guides. We cover everything: the upcoming Minus Spotlight Hour this Tuesday, January 25, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. local time, the just-launched Team Go Rocket Strikes event details, and Stardust farming in 2022. For all your Pokemon Go needs, stay tuned.


Regice Raid in Pokemon Go

Regice will appear in five-star raids starting today, January 24, until February 1. These raids can be occasionally be found at gyms, but your best bet to ensure you capture a Regice is to wait until January 26. On that day, between 6:00-7:00 p.m. local time, there will be a Pokemon Go Raid Hour event boosting all chances to face Regice in a raid.

Regice Weaknesses

Regice, as its appearance gives away, is an all-ice type Pokemon. With that in mind, Regice is particularly weak to fire, rock, steel, and fighting Pokemon. You will definitely want to use any combination of these Pokemon types to defeat Regice.
