Registeel Weakness & Type Effectiveness

As the name suggests, Registeel is a pure Steel-type Pokemon, which means players don’t have to worry about the inner workings of dual-type effectiveness. Being a Steel-type, players should bring Fire-type Pokemon with strong Fire, Ground, or Fighting-type moves.

Registeel only knows Normal, Steel, and Fighting-type moves, all of which aren’t super effective against the types that Registeel is vulnerable to. We suggest Fire-type Pokemon as they resist Steel-type moves, but Fighting or Ground-type Pokemon also work in a pinch.

While Registeel isn’t super challenging, it can be a bit tanky. That’s why we recommend at least three to four trainers team up during these raids as long as all of your Pokemon are above 3,500 CP and aren’t vulnerable to any of Registeel’s attacks.
