Legendary Pokémon are among the rarest creatures in the Pokémon universe. Hard to find, and even harder to catch. Each Pokémon game has a few of them hiding somewhere, waiting for keen-eyed players to catch.
Below, we have compiled a list of legendary Pokémon introduced in the third installment of the Pokémon game series. These Pokémon appeared in the Hoenn Region.
A rock type Pokémon made completely of stone, Regirock is among the three legendary golems introduced in the third generation. It has the ability to repair its body with rocks when damaged. Functioning without a heart or a brain as part of its anatomy, Regirock remains a mystery to modern science.
Another legendary golem, Regice is an ice type Pokémon that came into being during the Ice Age. When needed, Regirock envelopes its body in a mass of cold air, maintaining a temperature of -328F, for protection. Not that it needs much of that as its body cannot even be melted by lava.
Registeel is the last of the three legendary golems. A steel type Pokémon, its body is said to be harder than any known metal due to centuries of consistent tectonic pressure. With a body that is completely hollow from the inside, researchers have not been successful in determining if it eats anything.

A fierce Pokémon, and a mascot for Pokémon Sapphire, Kyogre is an oceanic beast that can expand the world’s seas by causing constant rain. It is believed that the enormous size of the world’s oceans today can be credited to Kyogre enveloping most land in rainfall and tidal waves.
