With the Mythical Wishes Season coming to a close, you’ll need to be prepared to take on the next set of Legendary Pokemon within the world of Pokemon GO. Knowing what you’re up against is the first key to success, and seeing that you have more Regi’s to go up against is rather exciting. Making their debut in the Pokemon Sword and Sheild DLC, Regieleki is one of the fastest monsters in the Pokemon world, but you’ve got the power of knowledge on your side. Let’s see what will flip the switch on this electrifying Legendary Pokemon.

Pokemon GO Regieleki 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 Regieleki 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 Regieleki will be in the same category with their Shiny Form available at launch.

When jumping into battle against any Legendary Pokemon, having the proper team put together is going to be the most important part of the battle, as well as knowing what will be the best type of monster to exploit their weaknesses. Not only is Regieleki one of the fastest Pokemon available in the base game, but they also happen to hit hard, with a base Attack Stat of 250.

Seeing as Regieleki only has one true weakness, gathering up your strongest Ground-type Pokemon will make this battle end quicker than Regieleki’s base speed stat. While they may still be able to do some damage, bringing these monsters to the brawl can ensure a quick and simple victory without much wiggle room for damage done to them.
