Did anyone get stuck solving the regi trio first time?
When you first played the game did anyone have any problems? like me trying to find the cave to unlock the regi, or trying to find a relicanth, also for the life of me I did not no where regice was.

the hardest part for me was the relicanth, I was exploitative so I found the islands before the underwater cave.

Shizzable August 21st, 2013 2:25 PM

I actually never attempted at catching the regis. I should try that sometime :P

Castform August 21st, 2013 2:36 PM

I got stuck at the Regis and I still do even after 20+playthroughs. I still have to google my way to do it, haha.

I can't do the Regi's without a guide for crap, though that's less of the puzzles, and more of the fact that they expect you to read braille.

On a screen.

Yeah for a game intended for children they sure made it complicated

Choosing a starter. I'll sit there for 30 mins trying to decide. Also I always have a problem catching any of the regi's. Just like I do with the birds in Kanto.

I had a problem actually getting through the ripples to the place to get to the place to unlock the regitrio.

Ren2489 August 22nd, 2013 11:04 AM

Getting through the ripples was hard for me than I remembered I didn't have a wailord...

XeroNos August 23rd, 2013 10:39 PM

No, I first read a guide to know how to tackle them all. My only problem came when I was hunting for the relicanth (thanks to it's low encounter rate) as well as catching Regirock ( It gave me almost 13 resets)

I never new of the Regis until I went to school that holidays so I lready had a relicanth. Found him really easy and I had a wailord but that was because they looked epic

TheKurtzinator August 24th, 2013 6:40 PM

The first time I read the braille, I didn't know what it was so I didn't touch that part of the game. I was 8 I think when I got Sapphire lol. The second time I played through it, I translated the braille by letter using a guide. After that, I gave up and looked it up online.

I can faintly remember what do but I can never remember which one to do for each and the exact details of it.

Elaitenstile August 24th, 2013 11:26 PM

When I was solving the puzzles, I'd just learnt about Braille as part of Physics class, so yes, I just hit up Braille on the internet and decoded them all.

It was fun solving them.

Aeroblast August 25th, 2013 2:40 PM

I couldn't figure it out for the love of my life before I searched Google for it. Placement of Wailord and Relicant differs between the games, too, though that can be done with trial and error.

Signal the Haunting August 28th, 2013 9:13 PM

It took me around an hour to find that stupid Relicanth lol.

JayD August 29th, 2013 4:42 PM

The first time I first learned about the puzzle of the trio, I never got stuck because I followed a guide made by Chuggaaconroy (LP'er on Youtube). And thanks to him, I never got stuck because he explained in full details what to do every time. Although it took me lodas of time to find a Relicanth.. around 3 hours? While it took me at least 15 minutes to get the Wailord.

Flushed August 29th, 2013 9:02 PM

The first time I did it, I had a guide that I followed. But every subsequent time, I got stuck inside the caverns, using random Flys and Cuts at like every square haha.

R.F. August 30th, 2013 12:14 AM

On my first playthrough I found the cave by mere accident. Also I remember trying to solve the puzzle to get to Regice in my Sapphire until suddenly the door simply opened xD

But since my battery died I can't get to him anymore...stupid clock events

Amore August 30th, 2013 12:50 AM

I just really struggled with navigating Route 132 etc. to get to the Dive spot. Everything else was okay. As a kid I like solving the puzzle with Braille, made me feel like a genius xD. Now it's probably going to irritate me (literally just caught a Relicanth to go with my Wailord).

Orifiel August 30th, 2013 1:23 AM

Yeah, but youtube saved my life so.. oh well.

Salamence August 31st, 2013 2:21 AM

I didn't even know the existence of Regi-trio back in the days,
my old friend told me how to...
One of them required to use Fly in the cave,
which I didn't believe, until he snatched the game from me and showed it himself! :D

FraxureGames September 1st, 2013 5:32 PM

I believe I discovered the Regis' caves long before I knew what they were. Luckily I had my friend and Bulbapedia to help me solve their riddles. I gotta say, translating all that braille was the toughest part for sure.

MechVenom September 2nd, 2013 1:01 AM

i've never had any problems catching regis or finding relicanths but the sootopolis gym puzzle was hard

Sweets Witch September 2nd, 2013 6:03 AM

A friend of mine told me about the whole ordeal and he listed all of the details, which I poorly memorized and tried out when I got home. Got stuck trying to navigate my way to the Dive spot for a while, but eventually I got there and realized that I forgot what Pokemon he said to bring. The Relicanth was the easy part. I caught one because it looked rare. Getting a Wailord was the difficult part and to this day I still hate raising a stupid Wailmer to a stupid Wailord because it's stupid.

Eventually I caught all three Regis, though.

Sheep September 2nd, 2013 4:04 PM

Uugh.. yes. xD; I didn't understand the puzzle and had to buy a guidebook to help me out (because at the time I didn't know I could use the internet). The darn things were so complicated. :<
