Regidrago (レジドラゴ Rejidorago) is a Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII, included in Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.

Biology

Physiology

Regidrago is a pink orb Pokémon with jaw-like cracks surrounding its eyes, which are blue and stylised into somewhat of a Y shape. Its arms are halves of a skull's jaw resembling Charizard's. It has 2 stubby legs and a black cracked foot.

Behavior

Regidrago's body is composed of crystallized dragon energy, and the energy is densest in its central core. It can use Dragon-type moves with greater power than other Pokémon thanks to its body composition.

Folklore tells that Regigigas tried to create a Pokémon from crystallized dragon energy, but eventually ran out of crystals. As a result, only the head was able to be completed. People feared that if Regidrago were to be completed, it would rain destruction on their land, so they sealed it away within a temple in the Crown Tundra.

Evolution

Regidrago does not evolve.

Trivia

  • It is similar to its counterpart Regieleki: both are Regi Pokémon introduced in the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass Crown Tundra update, and have immense power of their respective types that is sealed away by ancient people in some ways.
  • Upon close inspection, Regidrago's appendages bear a resemblance to Gigantamax Charizard's skull.

Origin

Regidrago is based on a golem, an artificial creature from Hebrew legend that was given life through the writing on its head. As the Regi quintet seem to be based on ages of history, Regidrago may represent the Middle Ages, which lasted from 475 CE to 1543 CE, or alternatively the Mesozoic Era, known as the Age of Reptiles as it was when the dinosaurs lived, which lasted from about 251.902–66 million years ago. Its round crystalline form may be based upon motifs of East Asian dragons bearing crystalline pearls in their claws, which were believed to represent their closeness to universal perfection as the creators of the universe from this stemmed the belief that crystals are the remnants of a dragon's divine breath, while their incomplete nature may draw from Japanese art motifs of depicting dragons coming into frame and without whole figure to represent their unfathomable power.

Etymology

Both Regidrago and Rejidorago are portmanteaus of "regis" (Latin for "royal") and "dragon".
