Pokémon world locations

The Snowpoint Temple (Japanese: キッサキ神殿 Kissaki Temple) is a location in Snowpoint City. It is home to the Legendary Pokémon Regigigas. The temple cannot be entered until the player has entered the Hall of Fame and obtained the National Pokédex.

Regigigas appears on the bottom floor as a statue and will not awaken unless the Legendary titansRegice, Regirock, and Registeel—are in the player's party. The temple has six floors, one ground and five basements, and has many puzzles involving sliding on ice tiles.

In Sinnoh's distant past as Hisui, the Snowpoint Temple is at the far end of the Alabaster Icelands above the Pearl Settlement, and its stories are inverted - it is five floors high (including the rooftop) and has one basement. Its puzzles involve observing statues of the Legendary titans. Regigigas is once again found on the bottom floor.

Geography

 
The temple

The Snowpoint Temple is a temple at the northernmost point of the Sinnoh region. Throughout the temple are ice-sliding puzzles, and at one point Strength is necessary to obtain an item. The wild Pokémon that can be found inside the temple are mostly cave and Ice-type Pokémon. The Snowpoint Temple has no Trainers; only the chosen are permitted to enter the temple. On the bottom floor of the temple there is an immobilized statue of Regigigas. In the Sinnoh games, this Regigigas statue will animate when Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are all in the player's party and can be battled and captured. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Regigigas is able to be fought after obtaining the Earth Plate, Icicle Plate, and Iron Plate, the plates associated with the types of the related Regis. After catching Regigigas, the player then receives the Blank Plate.

The Poké Ball she was holding slipped out of her hand and rolled towards a large dark figure deeper within the temple.
