Alongside its compatriots Regirock and Registeel, Regice made a recent return to the spotlight in Pokemon GO. As a result, players see the titanic Pokemon more often in combat situations.

A defensive behemoth, Regice shares the impressive defensive stats of Regirock but isn't as wide open to counters when it comes to elemental weaknesses. Be that as it may, Regice still has weaknesses to consider and can still be countered well in either PvE or PvP situations.

Overall, Regice possesses four elemental weaknesses and only one resistance (Ice-type moves). This provides Pokemon GO trainers with plenty of counter-picking options.

In Pokemon and Pokemon GO, Regice takes super effective damage from Fire, Fighting, Rock, and Steel-type moves. This provides a significant swath of Pokemon and moves that can deal improved damage against the icy titan, making considerable headway in damage against the Pokemon's impressive defensive stats.

Regice will still require a significant amount of damage to take down, but using super effective moves against it is the optimal method compared to standard damage.

Below, Pokemon GO trainers can find moves and Pokemon that are best suited to take on Regice, including Mega Evolved Pokemon in raid situations:
