Regice will appear from Legendary Raid Battles, which are signified by the five-star rating in the Raid tab. Approach the Gym with the Regice on top and enter the Raid Battle. Going solo in a Legendary Raid Battle isn't the best idea bring some friends or wait for other Pokémon Go players to appear in the Gym.

Once you enter the Gym, you can input a special code to join other players. The code isn't a number but images of various Pokémon, which you can share. Once the code is entered, you'll be put in a queue for 90 seconds or so and then you'll enter the battle with Regice.

Tap and swipe the screen to attack and avoid attacks until Regice's health is depleted. The next phase will be catching Regice. You'll be given at least five Premiere Balls to catch Regice (more based on whether the Gym is part of your team, how much damage you dealt, and so on).

This part of the battle is pure luck, as you'll attempt to catch Regice using only the balls given to you. If you fail to catch it, Regice will run away and you'll have to do another Raid Battle to get another chance.

Best Regice Counters

Regice is an Ice-type, so powerful Fire-type Pokémon are your best bet in Raid Battles with this behemoth. If you've been doing Legendary Raids for Pokémon like Ho-Oh and Entei, you'll have more than enough firepower (heh) to get over Regice. Of course, there are other non-Legendary Pokémon that can help you take Regice down.

The best Pokémon to take into a Regice Raid Battle are:

  • Entei with Fire Spin and Overheat
  • Moltres with Fire Spin and Overheat
  • Ho-Oh with Steel Wing and Fire Blast

If you don't have the above Legendary Pokémon, you can still take these into battle.

  • Charizard with Fire Spin and Blast Burn (from the Charmander Community Day)
  • Flareon with Fire Spin and Overheat
  • Machamp with Counter and Dynamic Punch/Close Combat
  • Hariyama with Counter and Dynamic Punch/Close Combat
  • Heracross with Counter and Dynamic Punch/Close Combat
