'''Regigigas''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''レジギガス''' ''Regigigas'') is a {{type|Normal}} [[legendaryLegendary Pokémon]].
It is not known to [[Evolution|evolve]] into or from any other Pokémon.
It comes to life only when {{p|Regirock}}, {{p|Regice}}, and {{p|Registeel}} are gathered. Therefore, it requires the three to be in the player's [[party]] to awaken it within the [[Snowpoint Temple]] (or [[Twist Mountain]]), where it sleeps. It still appears if they are absent, but does not awaken and the player regards it as a statue.
It is the [[trio master]] of [[Hoenn]]'s [[legendaryLegendary golems]].
Regigigas is a large, white, golem Pokémon with seven dot-like "eyes" arranged in a specific pattern. The braille pattern is Regigigas's way of showing its anger: its eyes glow red when it is mad. It has six spots that are apart from its eyes, which seem to be gemstones. These gemstones seem to represent the Regis, with the red gems representing {{p|Regirock}}, the blue gems representing {{p|Regice}} and the silver gems representing {{p|Registeel}}. It has long arms, with three fairly human-like white fingers, and short legs. It has large yellow bands on its shoulders and wrists, with a sloping section on its chest that appears to be its head also being yellow. Its body is covered in black stripes, and it has moss growing in its back and feet, which may indicate it has been asleep for a long time. Legends say that its colossal strength enables it to move continents. It can communicate via telepathy.
Regigigas is decent at crafting as it is capable of making golems of inanimate objects and bring them to life. Regigigas is capable of controlling these [[legendaryLegendary golems]], even if they already belong to a {{pkmn|Trainer}}. It can also survive extreme conditions as it is capable of working with high temperature magma, ({{tt|1300-2400°F|700-1300°C}}) as well as extremely cold ice ({{tt|-328°F|-200°C}}). When Regigigas is disturbed from its slumber, it goes on a rampage and shoots powerful beams. When it is befriended, however, it is calm and gentle, as seen in ''[[DP129|Pillars of Friendship!]]''. Regigigas can handle any terrain.
==In the anime==
Regigigas appeared in ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky Warrior]]''. In the movie, it lives in a temple in the mountains of {{si|Gracidea}}. It had been asleep for centuries, for so long that moss began to grow on its body. However, when [[Zero]] entered the [[Reverse World]] and began shattering pillars of ice within it, the glacier in front of Regigigas' temple suffered catastrophic explosions and began moving. This disturbed the great titan's slumber, rousing it into action. When [[Dawn's Buneary]] and {{TP|Dawn|Swinub}} failed to stop the glacier with the help of a large group of wild Pokémon, Regigigas appeared in the command of a herd of dozens of {{p|Mamoswine}} and together, they began pushing on the glacier to hold it back. Regigigas returned to its temple at the end of the movie, where it is seen using {{m|Hyper Beam}} on {{TRT}} during the credits.
Another Regigigas appeared in ''[[DP129|Pillars of Friendship]]'' at the [[Snowpoint Temple]]. [[J]] wanted to steal it so it was rudely awakened by her. It went on a rampage after, using {{m|Hyper Beam}} on practically anything. It even used {{m|Confuse Ray}} to control [[Pyramid King Brandon]]'s set of [[legendaryLegendary golems]] to help it. At the end of the episode, it healed Brandon and his golems using {{m|Hidden Power}} to restore them from their petrification. It was then taken back to the temple to return to its slumber.

* Due to {{a|Slow Start|its Ability}} weakening it, Regigigas has more in common with {{p|Slaking}} than it does with other [[legendaryLegendary Pokémon]]. They share the {{t|Normal}} type, the same base stat total of 670, the same base {{stat|Attack}} stat of 160, and [[Ability|Abilities]] that limit their power.
** Regigigas and {{p|Slaking}} also have the highest [[base stats|base stat]] in {{stat|Attack}} of all {{type|Normal}} Pokémon.
* It is the only Pokémon who can learn [[TM]]s that cannot learn {{TM|17|Protect}} or {{TM|44|Rest}}. This is probably to prevent people from countering its own Ability by avoiding damage or healing itself.
* Regigigas is the only one of the [[legendaryLegendary golems]] not to have its type in its name.
** Regigigas is also the only one of the legendaryLegendary golems that does not use the remix of the legendaryLegendary golem battle theme in {{v2|Platinum}}. Instead, it uses the legendaryLegendary battle theme, much like in {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}.
*** In {{2v2|Black|White|2}}, however, the remix of the legendaryLegendary golem battle theme is used.
* In Platinum, by hacking to obtain Cherish Balls, it is possible to trick the game into opening [[Rock Peak Ruins|Rock Peak]], [[Iceberg Ruins|Iceberg]], and [[Iron Ruins]]: by catching the in-game Regigigas in a Cherish Ball, the game thinks the Regigigas was obtained at a Nintendo event.
* In [[Generation IV]], Regigigas is the only Pokémon required to acquire the [[Diploma]] that cannot be obtained without the use of [[Generation III]] games or an event, even with all Generation IV titles. This limitation occurs because Regigigas cannot be obtained without the use of the other legendaryLegendary golems, which in turn cannot be obtained without either importing them from Generation III or obtaining them in Platinum with an event Regigigas.
