With a new season comes new Raids, and it seems that you’ll be eating well when claiming new Legendaries in Pokemon GO. Coming from the Galar region, Regidrago is making its triumphant debut inside this mobile game. However, it will be a challenging battle, as they are one of the most powerful monsters ever created. Knowledge is power, so let’s jump right in and find out what the best strategy is when squaring off against this terrifying Regi Legendary in battle.

Pokemon GO Regidrago Raid Schedule

The Regieleki and Regidrago raids will take place as Elite Raids, breaking the cycle of the standard Legendary Raid Circuit. These raids will be available on March 11, 2023, and April 9, 2023. It is unclear as to which Legendary will be available first.

Can Regidrago Be Shiny In Pokemon GO?

There is currently no information to point us in the right direction, as these two monsters have just been announced for Pokemon GO. However, all Legendary Pokemon have been released with their Shiny variant as soon as they have been available, so we can assume that Regidrago will be in the same category with their Shiny Form available at launch.

Not only is this going to be a tough battle on account of Regidrago’s intense attack stat of 400, but with a straight Dragon typing, there are only a few different monsters that can inflict serious damage on them. Knowing which monsters to bring into battle with you is going to be key, as unlike Regieleki, this Legendary can pack a major punch against a fair number of monsters.

With all of the preparation done, get out into the world and start gathering up some new monsters and items before jumping into these intense battles. Since they are Elite Raids, the Remote Raid option will not be available to enlist the help of friends. You’ll need to get together to challenge these Legendary creatures, so make sure your phone doesn’t die with these accessories that will give you the boost you need.
