How to Get Regieleki in Pokemon GO

The Regi siblings have dominated 2023, with Regirock, Regice, and Registeel each bathing in the limelight of 5-Star Raids. But Regieleki has come to steal the spotlight!

I may have overplayed the similarities between Regieleki and Joltik, as Regieleki is distinctly more lightbulb-like than the adorable electric tick. But you can’t deny that there’s some resemblance! And for a limited time it can be yours.

Regieleki will be catchable for a small window on Sunday, April 9, 2023, when it will hatch at 11:00 AM, 2:00 PM and 5:00 PM.

Yes, that’s right. Once the event begins, an Elite Raid Egg will appear at an EX Gym, which will then take 24 hours to hatch. This gives you a chance to scout out where Regieleki might be. But once the egg hatches, you’ll only have 30 minutes to complete it.

Regieleki’s Elite Raid is expected to be harder than your average 5-Star Raid and it can only be completed in-person. Weep for those who are in rural or suburban areas.

But because of the short window trainers have to catch Regieleki, Nianatic has encouraged trainers to coordinate raids with their local Pokemon GO group. If you’re having trouble finding an EX Gym on your normal Raid Radar, Niantic recommends you download their app, Campfire, to find the EX Gym locations easier.

Along with the release of Regieleki will come an Exclusive Timed Research, which will only be available to trainers who take part in the raid. This Timed Research can only be completed once, and the reward is Candy for Regirock, Registeel, and Regice.

Personally, I believe there will be more chances to battle and capture Regieleki in the future. But we can’t be certain, so good luck catching it on April 9!
