Legendary golems

Get it? Because the name is unknown. The subject of this article has no official name.
The name currently in use is a fan designator; see below for more information.
Regice, Registeel and Regirock

Legendary golems is a collective fan term used to refer to the trio of Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. Other fan terms include Regi trio and Regis.

Unlike previous trios, the golems share very similar names, and their types are further estranged from the original Fire, Ice, and Electric that the birds take on (two of the beasts share types with the birds, while only one of the golems does). Like them, however, these three have a master (and like the beasts, a creator) in Regigigas.

Also shared among the members of this trio is a weakness to Fighting-type moves. Each has seven dots for eyes, arranged in a different pattern, similar to the braille that is connected to their legend. Unlike the birds and beasts, the golems do not have Pressure as their Ability, though they do share the Ability Clear Body. They are the slowest of all legendary Pokémon.

In the anime and outside Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, they appeared as somewhat less important than the previous two trios, even being trained, in Poké Balls, no less, by Brandon, while the birds are said to cause a cataclysm if even one is captured (as happened in the second movie) and the beasts are unable to be captured by conventional means.

One of the many reasons why this trio is seen as "easily attainable" is because of the legends surrounding them. Long ago, Regigigas is said to have pulled the continents into place, and then created the three from an icy mountain, rocks, and magma in its image. Regigigas was apparently worshiped at one time, alongside the other three, by ancient people. Due to it being so powerful, Regigigas was sealed away in the basement of the Snowpoint Temple, while the ones it created were spirited to the far-off Hoenn region and locked away in three stone structures, which were then sealed themselves. A message was left in braille to whoever would come to discover the Sealed Chamber, whose only access was via an underwater cavern, in the hopes that one day the Pokémon could be tamed.

In the games

Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald

In the Hoenn Generation III games, Regirock is found in the Desert Ruins on Route 111. To encounter Regirock, the player must walk two steps to the right, two steps down and then use StrengthRS or walk two steps to the left, then two steps down and use Rock SmashE. Regice is found in the Island Cave on Route 105, and to encounter it, the player must wait two minutes in front of the signRS or walk a counterclockwise lap around the walls of the caveE. Registeel is found in the Ancient Tomb on Route 120, and it is necessary to go to the middle of the room and use FlyRS or FlashE to open its cave.

Pokémon Platinum

The three golems are only obtainable in Pokémon Platinum if the player has a fateful encounter Regigigas in their party and has defeated the Elite Four. Regirock is obtainable in the Rock Peak Ruins on Route 228, Regice is obtainable in the Iceberg Ruins in Mt. Coronet and Registeel is obtainable in the Iron Ruins on Iron Island.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

All three legendary golems are obtainable in the Underground Ruins. However, to access the rooms where Registeel and Regice are, special keys are required to enter. The two keys which can be obtained after facing Regirock can only be found in one of the games. The Iron Key for Registeel is found in Black 2 and the Iceberg Key for Regice is in White 2. It is still possible to use the Unova Link to upload data for that key into the other game to get Regice in Black 2 or Registeel in White 2 once the key from the other version has been found.

In the anime

All three golems in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew
Main article: Legendary golems (M08)

The legendary golems made their debut in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, guarding the Tree of Beginning from intruders. They each followed Ash, Brock, May, Max, Kidd, Jessie, and James throughout the tunnel network beneath the Tree of Beginning. Once the intruders had all been consumed by the Tree, the legendary golems retreated.

Main article: Brandon's legendary golems

The legendary golems made their anime debuts under the ownership of Brandon, each of which battled Ash's Pokémon throughout his journey to collect the Symbols. When Ash had finally defeated Regice, he was awarded the Brave Symbol.

The legendary golems, along with Regigigas, also appeared in Pillars of Friendship!.

In the manga

The legendary golems make two major appearances and a cameo appearance in Pokémon Adventures.

In the Ruby & Sapphire chapter, Steven (with the help of Sapphire) unsealed the three golems in order to stop the effects of the clash between Kyogre and Groudon spreading beyond Sootopolis City. After the clash was stopped, the golems rampaged and later disappeared.

In the Emerald chapter, Brandon (with the help of Scott) relocated the golems and captured all three of them. He used them in the battle against Emerald, starting the battle with Regirock and ending it with Regice.

In the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter, it was revealed that Palmer loaned the three golems from Brandon in order to awaken Regigigas, who later joined Diamond's team.
