Regirock In the Meta

Raid Meta – Rock Throw / Stone Edge

Regirock has gotten a lot of flack for its low Attack Stat, but it is serviceable as a Rock-Type attacker, making the top 10 best. Even with its middling attack stat, its overall Damage Output is still comparable to Tyranitar and Rhyperior. This makies it very efficient for newer players, where needing to rejoin and use revives is more of a problem.  It occupies a strong niche as an anchor who can still dish out respectable damage. If a Rock-Weak attacker ever comes along who is one shotting your team left and right, Regirock has a utility there.
