Did you bother to catch Regigigas?

Did you catch the colossal Regigigas found in Snowpoint temple? Was it worth it? Did you use it, or did you throw it in the PC to rot like most of your legendary Pokemon? Discuss!

Well, I sadly didn't have a copy of Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald to use, so what did I do?

Ask a really kind friend of mine to lend me his copy and Pokemon. He gave me the 3 Regis (along with a Rayquaza), and let me capture Regigigas (first I had to conquer Ice Path v2.0)...sadly, that darned Slow Start stopped me from using Regigigas, if it didn't have that ability, it would have easily been my 2nd strongest Pokemon in my team.

I didn't even bother looking for him. I don't like 4th Gen Legends that much, and I only aim for favorites in this game.

Amore May 31st, 2013 5:41 AM

Yeah, I've caught him when I've had the opportunity so...twice. Once in Diamond when I happened to have the Regis from Emerald, and once in Platinum because I got the event Regigigas off a kind soul on this site.
But yeah, he gets left to rot. I'm kinda tempted to use the level 1 one as a "Starter" or something in Diamond next time through, but I don't like using pokémon outside of my regional pokédex pre-E4 because I'm ocd like that :/

Talli May 31st, 2013 6:26 AM

I still cannot be bothered catching it even though I can catch it. Maybe I will catch it one day.

Nuke May 31st, 2013 6:29 AM

If I remember correctly, I rented the Regis from another member on PC via wi-fi to get Regigigas, but then I didn't use him.

To be fair it made sense at the time because he & Arceus were the only D/P/Pt legendaries I didn't have so it was a step towards completing that checklist. I never got Arceus though so that was a bit pointless I guess.

If I played through the games again I wouldn't bother, I dislike all the Regis really though Regigigas is much nicer than the others.

Limerent May 31st, 2013 7:18 AM

I caught him on my first playthrough of Pearl. Don't remember how since this was in 2008. What I do remeber is I never raised the blasted thing a single level, after the amount of balls it took to catch. Regigigas wasn't in my opinion as cool as the trio in terms of sprites, puzzle design and Slow Start -_- A shame really, he could have been epic...

WingedDragon May 31st, 2013 8:11 AM

I caught him in 4th and 5th gen. It sucks that slow start ability. YOu would likely need to pair him with someone who can use Skill Swap or something

Pinsir2735 May 31st, 2013 12:09 PM

I caught him, raised him to about level 80 and got bored. He sucks at fighting even if he's a legendary.

Hikamaru May 31st, 2013 4:41 PM

I didn't even catch him, but if I did I probably wouldn't have used him cos I hate his ability.

Brendino May 31st, 2013 10:34 PM

I only managed to catch two of the other Regis on my Sapphire, so even if I had transferred them over, I still wouldn't have been able to catch Regigigas anyway. Plus, it was very low on my priority list, since I wasn't really trying to complete the Pokedex on my Platinum.

TreeKangaroo June 22nd, 2013 6:23 PM

Yeah, I got the event one with pressure which pwned everything with crush grip. I caught the level 1 too but never did anything. Though Haydunn used a regigigas which had slow start which still saved him from a wi-fi battle.

Castform June 25th, 2013 1:19 PM

I caught it, but I didn't use it because it was so ugly and has a horrid ability :(

Pikayosh June 25th, 2013 5:24 PM

I caught him and used him slow start I didn't mind much because of his tank

Elaitenstile June 26th, 2013 4:27 AM

Uh, I never had the chance to insert my Ruby on a DS to shift in Regigigigigigigigigi... Oh no, gas!
Well, yes, I hate the fact with this neverending loop of Regigigas for Regis and Regis for 'gigas.
If I had the chance, I'd slot n rot him in the PC as per my no-legendaries rule.

Never have, most likely never will.

Shrew July 13th, 2013 6:31 PM

My friend loaned me his regi's; I caught regigigas simply as a PC trophy, for completion.

That's pretty much how it went with me too haha. I used my regi's from Sapphire and caught Regigigas as a dex filler/trophy, but I never intend to use him. I don't like using legendary Pokémon full stop, but having such a hindering ability and uninteresting set of moves makes Regigigas a very unappealing choice to me. It's a shame, I adore the original trio but their 'boss' is a big let down.

SuperEspeon July 15th, 2013 12:07 PM

First of all, it's insanely hard to get, with all those GBA games, two of which I didn't have, already making me wary. But with slow start, who the hell would use it? Plus it's at Level 1 so I wouldn't even bother.

PlatinumDude July 16th, 2013 1:45 AM

Nope, didn't bother to go for Regigigas at all, actually, because I didn't feel like transferring the 3 Regis from Sapphire or Emerald.

Wobbu July 16th, 2013 6:24 AM

Why not catch Regigigas? Yeah it has its Slow Start ability, but it could be worse... *cough*Traunt*cough* I used to think Regigigas was the coolest thing way back when.
I plan on catching one in my current game in Diamond, as soon as I get the Regis in Emerald and transfer them. I need it for my B2 Pokédex.

Golden Warrior July 16th, 2013 6:30 AM

I did in fact catch him, but for the Pokedex, nothing more. I did use him from time to time in later days, but never really. I would say Slow Start stopped me from using him, but the thing is, nothing did. I went through all that work, for another Pokedex entry.

Synerjee July 16th, 2013 9:08 AM

I've never ever caught Regigigas. It was always so damn difficult to obtain as it involves getting all three Regis in one game. Plus, I didn't have WiFi connection for my DS/emulator and an Emerald cartridge to even begin with, so capturing it is near impossible for me. All I could ever do was interact with its statue form in Snowpoint City.

Daixtey July 16th, 2013 9:57 AM

I catched him but then never used him because he didnt made my team any better and also his ability is for a Slow paced fighting style and I like to battle fast.

Sheep July 16th, 2013 3:22 PM

I caught it! The thing never saw the light of day after that, though. xD;
