We are still recovering from all the Pokémon Sword and Shield news that the most recent Nintendo Direct has shared. While the trailers shown on the live gave us a lot of news, there was a lot of teased stuff in the footage that we didn't get much information about. In a very brief moment in one of the trailers, fans were able to glimpse what appear to be two new Pokémon Regi.
As a quick update for those who are not known, Regis has been introduced to a trio of legendary Pokémon Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. They are golem-like Pokémon that hide in deep and complex caves that players must traverse. Each Regi has a series of dots on the face. They are each made up of an elemental; there is a Regice, Regirock and Registeel. Regigigas, the giant titan Pokémon that looks like a Regi, is their master.
Based on what we saw in the latest Pokémon trailer, the Tri Regi could become a quintet in the upcoming Sword and Shield DLC. Two new Pokémon were shown in the trailer, and both look like new Regis. While we haven't seen them too much in the trailer, we will review how much we know about these new Regis.
Everything we know about the two new Regis of Pokémon Sword and Shield
The main reason fans believe the two new Pokémon are Regis is because they have a similar body structure to that of the other Regis. They have a large torso with small protruding arms and legs. They also appear to be composed of two elementals. One of these looks like pure electricity, while the other looks like a large red ball with a dragon's head protruding from its sides. Dragon weapons make it appear that Regi will use dragon powers and be a dragon type Pokémon.
However, the biggest gift for them is Regis is the fact that they have a series of dots on their face that look similar to the dots found in the other Regis. Images of these two Regis also appeared after the trailer showed the original three Regis and their temples.
Speaking of temples, in the trailer it appears that each of the Regis has their own temple for players to walk through in the second DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra. The color of the temple and the formation of the points at the top correspond to those of one of the three Regis. The trailer showed four temples, three of which matched the original Regis trio.
But there was a fourth on display; this fourth temple is divided into two colors, one side is yellow and the other is red. The yellow side has the dot formation of the new electric looking Regi on top, and the red side has the dot formation of the new dragon looking Regi. Presumably, each temple will house a respective Regi, and the two new Regis will be found in the fourth.
It is possible that they end up being exclusive versions, which could explain why there is only one temple for both. It is also possible that players can choose which way to explore the temple. This is just speculative on our part, there is not much official information on these two new Regis.
