Regieleki (レジエレキ Rejiereki) is an Electric-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII, included in Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass. It, along with Regirock, Regice, Registeel, and Regidrago, is part of the Regi quintet (sextet if one counts Regigigas).

Biology

Physiology

Regieleki is a yellow bipedal Pokémon that appears to be made of electricity. It has two short, lightning bolt-shaped legs, two big, somewhat cylindrical arms that can open up, seven pinkish dots on its face arranged in a sort of "X" pattern, three spikes on its head, and blue rings separating its head from its arms and legs.

Personality

This Pokémon absorbs electrons to live, as electrical energy makes up most of its body.

Abilities

Its Electric-type moves are said to pack the greatest power of any moves used by Electric-type Pokémon.

Regieleki's body is fitted with a blue equipment that appears to be an insulator. Some researchers theorize that, in ancient times, people that were tormented by Regieleki fitted the equipment on it to restrain its powers.

It has the signature move Thunder Cage, which is similar to Fire Spin and other similar moves (it traps the opponent and inflicts chip damage for 4-5 turns).

Evolution

Regieleki does not evolve.

Trivia

  • It is the shortest regi.
  • At 200, Regieleki has the highest Speed base stat of any Pokémon.
  • Ironically enough, it is the second Pokémon to poke fun at a real life conflict (the Current War), the first being the Galar Fossil Pokémon (who represent the Bone Wars).
  • Its signature move is likely based on the Faraday Cage, which is supposed to shield whatever is inside from electromagnetic waves.

Origin

Regieleki is based on a golem, an artificial creature from Hebrew legend given life through the writing on its head, much like the other Regis. It also has elements of a light bulb and Tesla coils. Its restraints imply it is a personified electrical current wrapped in insulation.

It may also draw inspiration from the Current War between Thomas Edison (Direct Current) and Nikola Tesla (Alternating Current), since its body appears to be based on both of their inventions.

As the Legendary Titans appear to be based on the ages of human history, Regieleki appears to be based on the modern age to the present.

Etymology

Regieleki and Rejiereki come from regis (Latin for "royal") and "electricity".
