back for another Rework, cause those are fun.
This time, I'm going to tackling...
I'm the rework.
But seriously, I'm gonna rework the Regi trio,
Regirock, Regice, and Registeel,
since I just find it sad how, despite the INSANE amount of work you need to get these three robotic boys,
the payoff is that of an error 404.
There isn't any payoff.
So, let's go and Register these dotted tanks as viable, shall we?
Let's start off with something basic,
and last I checked, rocks are, pretty basic.
Oooh, this rocks sparkly!
If his stats are any bit as shiny, we might not need to change anything!
Not all that bad honestly,
Solid stats all around, and a MASSIVE defense stat.
What's the issue?
Well, for starters...
He's slow, and lacks reliable recovery.
Also, despite his good attack stat, he doesn't deal enough damage to be a threat.
This seems like a couple of simple changes.
First off, +20 to his Attack stat.
Easy enough fix.
And to deal with his lack of recovery...
I COULD just give him recover,
but that seems lazy to me.
Plus, I don't think this guys into recovery...
I think he's more into...
Regirock now gets Regenerator instead of Sturdy!
Ba da bing ba da boom!
He gud now.
Seriously, that's this guy needs.
And before you bring in "why regenerator",
here's a pokedex entry for you.
"Regirock was sealed away by people long ago. If this Pokémon's body is damaged in battle, it is said to seek out suitable rocks on its own to repair itself." ~Omega Ruby
Okay, I can understand if things got just a tad bit heated there.
How about we just...
chill out, you know?
A normal boy...
I'm not assuming, you are.
Regardless though, how's the iceberg fairing compared to the canyon?
Exactly the same, but this time he's special.
Well, I guess we'll just change up his ability and attack, like we did with Dwayne.
+20 Special Attack.
Ice Body, more like... Not-so-nIce body...
Okay, seriously, gross.
Let's change it up.
Regice now gets Heatproof instead of Ice Body!
Once again, we go to Rotom (fucking hate that Alolan piece of shite), for answers.
"Regice cloaks itself with frigid air of -328 degrees Fahrenheit. Things will freeze solid just by going near this Pokémon. Its icy body is so cold, it will not melt even if it is immersed in magma." ~Alpha Sapphire
So yeah, that's neat...
However, I feel Regice might need just a little bit more to start skating with the pros.
First off, it now gets Stealth Rock.
His brothers get it, afterall. We shouldn't neglect our cold brethren.
Next up, he gets Recover.
Why does Ice get it but not Johnson?
Just go with me for this one.
Finally, he gets Freeze-Dry.
Kind of silly how he didn't get it before, but whatever.
Also, let's not neglect that the changes I recently added on the Ice Type, also go for Regice as well.
So yeah, I'd say he's fixed.
Dragons beware of this frozen tyrant.
And finally, to my favorite of the trio.
Alrighty, we had one physically buff guy, and one specially articulate fella, what's the robot gonna be?
I always knew Registeel was the middle child.
Seems being a jack of all trades worked in his favor though,
since he's actually the most viable out of all the Regi's.
Yes, even his dad is worse than him.
Sniff they grow up so fast!
Okay okay, but what's this guy need?
Not much, but we'll give him the goods anyways.
Registeel now gets Filter instead of Light Metal!
Again, easy fix.
But jesus, the Regi's got fucked over when it came to Hidden abilities.
We'll also do the usual attack buffs,
+10 in Attack and Special Attack.
Cause it works.
Finally, new move time!
The only thing he really needs, is recovery.
What ABOUT Maui?
Regirock gets Recover too now.
Thrice the mons, thrice the work,
but hopefully, thrice the payoff too.
Dad's still stuck in his wheelchair!
