The game recommends teams of four or five high-level trainers to tackle this Raid successfully, so keep that in mind.

All Regice weaknesses in Pokemon Go

Regice is a pure Ice-type Pokemon in Pokemon Go, which means it’s weak to Fighting, Fire, Rock, and Steel-type attacks.

Regice’s highest stat is its Defense, meaning you’ll need to gather a team of powerful Pokemon that deal STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) to defeat it as fast as you can. The Legendary Pokemon can only resist Ice-type moves, so avoid using those in battle.
