Registeel (Japanese: レジスチル Registeel) is a Rock-type Legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Along with Regirock and Regice, it is one of the three Legendary golems of Hoenn.


The top-half of Registeel's body is spherical and gray with a black stripe running down its "face". Its face consists of seven red dots in a hexagonal formation. It has black arms with three fingers each and cylindrical legs. While Registeel has been classified as a Steel-type Pokémon, its body is actually made of a material that is harder than any known metal. However, this material stretches and shrinks despite its hardness. Its body was tempered by pressure underground over thousands of years.


  • In the non-English European versions of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, Registeel's sprite was edited because of its arm. The arm's original position is reminiscent of the Nazi salute. In Pokémon Platinum, the sprite was changed for all regions to the continental European variation (this change was retained in HeartGold and SoulSilver).
  • In Pokémon Ranger, Registeel is the only one of the three Regis that has a Field Move. The other two have a Poké Assist instead.
  • In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, there is an unobtainable Registeel Doll programmed into the game. It may have been intended to be obtained with the e-Reader.
  • Registeel is tied with Probopass and Shield Forme Aegislash for the highest Special Defense base stat of all Steel-type Pokémon.
  • Registeel is the only legendary golem without a base stat higher than the other members of the trio. Regirock has the highest Attack and Defense base stats, while Regice has the highest Special Attack and Special Defense base stats. In this way, *Registeel is the balanced member of the trio, as all three have equal HP and Speed base stats.
  • Registeel is the only legendary golem that learns both Iron Defense and Amnesia at level 41.
    • It learns more moves by level up than the other members of its trio, with 15.


Registeel is based on the golems of Hebrew legend. The legends cast them as servants of higher powers and are said to have writing on their heads. When the writing is removed, the creature would be weakened.
