Regice In the Meta

Raid Meta – Frost Breath / Blizzard

Regice inherits the poor reputation of the Regis as attackers, but it’s honestly a serviceable Ice-Type. Particularly when it was first released! Up until then all Ice-Types sat on a linear spectrum between Attack and TDO, with Jynx on one side and Lapras on the other. Regice performance broke above that, as the overall best Ice Type when considering both factors. 

That said, even that notable performance was still a solid rung below the performance of most other Types, limiting Ice to only being usable when it had double weakness on it side, such as against Rayquaza. In fact, Regice’s performance is so poor that Mewtwo getting an Ice Type charge attack instantly outclassed it even without a quick attack to go along with it. With the release of the Gen 4 Ice types. Regice is now far behind the pack, and is entirely dethroned  from any argument as the best. Mamoswine, in particular is strictly better than it, even when its ground typing puts it at a disadvantage!

That said, Regice is still a decent Ice-Type attacker, but it doesn’t serve any notably niche anymore, and the competition is easier to aquire.

That said, if you weren’t lucky enough to get an Ex Raid during its Shadow Ball period, you can still get this move. When Mewtwo was released from its EX shackles for a global event-that move was removed from it’s TM pool. Mewtwo was last a raid boss 10/5/2019. It was last in Raids 35 days ago.

Closing Thoughts

Regice is going to only be around a couple days, so be sure to snag one of these rarely available pokemon while you can! It might not be immediately useful, but it has the potential for some niche service. Who are we kidding… get a shiny one and move on to the next raid!
