Registeel In the Meta

Raid Meta – Metal Claw + Flash Cannon

To be frank, Registeel is not a good attacker. While the other Regi’s have a niche they can call home- the way Pokemon stats are calculated in Pokemon Go betrays it here. In the original games all of the Regis had ludicrous numbers in the games two defensive Stats (Special Defense, Physical Defense) which are combined into one in Pokemon Go. Regice has Special Defense, Regirock has Physical Defense, and Registeel had a more balanced combination of both. The thing is, Pokemon Go has a 7/8 bias towards whichever stat was the highest, so Pokemon with balanced stats are punished.

Basically, this means Registeel isn’t even that amazing defensively despite being a Regi. It’s not useful sadly.
