Regigigas (Japanese: レジギガス Regigigas) is a Normal-type Legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

It comes to life only when Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are gathered. Therefore, it requires the three to be in the player's party to awaken it within the Snowpoint Temple, Twist Mountain, or Island Cave, where it sleeps. It still appears if they are absent but does not awaken, causing the player to regard it as a statue.

It is the trio master of Hoenn's Legendary golems.

Biology

Regigigas is a large, white, golem Pokémon with seven black dot-like "eyes" arranged in a specific pattern. The dot pattern is Regigigas's way of showing its anger: its eyes glow red when it is mad. It has six spots that are apart from its eyes, which seem to be gemstones. These gemstones seem to represent the Regis, with the red gems representing Regirock, the blue gems representing Regice and the silver gems representing Registeel. It has long arms, with three fairly human-like white fingers, and short legs. It has large yellow bands on its shoulders and wrists, with a sloping section on its chest that appears to be its head also being yellow. Its body is covered in black stripes, and it has moss growing in its back and feet, which may indicate it has been asleep for a long time. Legends say that its colossal strength enables it to move continents. It can communicate via telepathy.

Regigigas is decent at crafting as it is capable of making golems of inanimate objects and bring them to life. Regigigas is capable of controlling these Legendary golems, even if they already belong to a Trainer. It can also survive extreme conditions as it is capable of working with high temperature magma, (1300-2400°F) as well as extremely cold ice (-328°F). When Regigigas is disturbed from its slumber, it goes on a rampage and shoots powerful beams. When it is befriended, however, it is calm and gentle, as seen in Pillars of Friendship!. Regigigas can handle any terrain.

Trivia

  • Due to its Ability weakening it, Regigigas has more in common with Slaking than it does with other Legendary Pokémon. They share the Normal type, the same base stat total of 670, the same base Attack stat of 160, and Abilities that limit their power.
    • Regigigas and Slaking also have the highest base stat in Attack of all Normal-type Pokémon.
  • It is the only Pokémon who can learn TMs that cannot learn TM17 (Protect) or TM44 (Rest). This is probably to prevent people from countering its own Ability by avoiding damage or healing itself.
  • Regigigas is the only one of the Legendary golems not to have its type in its name.
    • Regigigas is also the only one of the Legendary golems that does not use the remix of the Legendary golem battle theme in Platinum. Instead, it uses the Legendary battle theme, much like in Diamond and Pearl.
      • In Black 2 and White 2, however, the remix of the Legendary golem battle theme is used.
  • In Platinum, by hacking to obtain Cherish Balls, it is possible to trick the game into opening Rock Peak, Iceberg, and Iron Ruins: by catching the in-game Regigigas in a Cherish Ball, the game thinks the Regigigas was obtained at a Nintendo event.
  • In Generation IV, Regigigas is the only Pokémon required to acquire the Diploma that cannot be obtained without the use of Generation III games or an event, even with all Generation IV titles. This limitation occurs because Regigigas cannot be obtained without the use of the other Legendary golems, which in turn cannot be obtained without either importing them from Generation III or obtaining them in Platinum with an event Regigigas.
  • Regigigas is the tallest Normal-type Pokémon.
  • Regigigas is one of the three Pokémon that can be found at level one in the wild. The other two Pokémon are Magikarp and Gyarados.

Origin

Regigigas is based on the golems of Hebrew legend. The legends cast them as servants of higher powers and are said to have writing on their heads. When the writing is removed, the creature would be weakened.

Name origin

Regigigas is a combination of regis, Latin for royal, and γίγας gigas, Greek for giant.
