After quite a bit of a break Regigigas has returned to Pokémon GO. And this time you can even catch Shiny Regigigas when you beat one in a raid. So players all around the world will be scrambling to defeat this colossal Pokémon, but to do that you need the best counters in your team. To help you out we have a new raid guide showing you the best Regigigas counters in Pokémon GO which is important when you want to catch Shiny Regigigas.

The Best Regigigas Counters – June 2021

As a Normal type Pokémon Regigigas is weak to Fighting type attacks and counters. This gives players a lot of great options, especially if you have powered up Shadow versions of anything listed down below. So let’s break down the very best Regigigas counters in Pokémon GO for June 2021.

Pokémon Fast Attack Charged Attack
Conkeldurr Counter Dynamic Punch
Lucario Counter Aura Sphere
Machamp Counter Dynamic Punch
Breloom Counter Dynamic Punch
Hariyama Counter Dynamic Punch
Toxicroak Counter Dynamic Punch

Any of these will do great at countering Regigigas in your raids, but you may need more options if you don’t have a few of these for your team. Mega Gengar is the best choice for a Mega Evolved Pokémon, if you wish to use one. And if you have them you might want to include Shadow Mewtwo with Psycho Cut and Psystrike, Shadow Alakazam with Counter and Psychic, and Shadow Metagross with Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash. Otherwise just use your most powerful Fighting type Pokémon and you should beat Regigigas easily if you have a big enough group.

How Many Players to Beat Regigigas

Every team is different, and with the new method of awarding Premier Balls you always want the largest group possible. However, if you can’t get 20 players together to take on Regigigas then we recommend going in with at least five trainers in the team. More is better, and even with this many if you aren’t best friends or they don’t have the best Regigigas counters then you will still struggle. So just try to make sure you have as many as you can and work with them on getting solid Fighting type counters into their team.

So that’s how to beat Regigigas, but how do you get a shiny Regigigas for all of this effort?

How to Get Shiny Regigigas

You can catch Shiny Regigigas whenever you beat one in a five-star raid, but you do have to rely on luck. The odds are about one in twenty, so the more raids you do and the more times you win, the higher the odds of catching one. But otherwise there’s no sure method to get Shiny Regigigas in Pokémon GO. Just taking on as many raids as you can is the only real trick.
