 Sealed Chamber
Start Surfing west of Pacifidlog Town; you will notice some strong currents that carry you to Slateport City. Enter these currents from their southern border. You might have to travel two or three times before you notice and finally reach the only dive spot in this route. Dive into it and swim southward; you will notice an inscription in Braille. It says Use Dive here to enter the Sealed Chamber. So, resurface at that spot to enter the Main Chamber.
 Main Chamber
Inside, is a cave that has all ABCDEF... written in Braille again. The northernmost inscription reads Dig here. Use the Pokémon that knows the move Dig and a door will open leading to the Inner Chamber.
 Inner Chamber
Here is a long message written in this chamber:
- First row left: THOSE WITH COURAGE, THOSE WITH HOPE.
- First row right: OPEN A DOOR, AN ETERNAL POKÉMON WAITS.
- Second row left: BUT, WE SEALED THE POKÉMON AWAY.
- Second row right: WE FEARED IT.
- Third row left: IN THIS CAVE WE HAVE LIVED.
- Third row right: WE OWE ALL TO THE POKÉMON.
- Final row: FIRST COMES WAILORD, LAST COMES RELICANTH.
Switch the places of your party Pokémon so that Relicanth is at first place and Wailord is at the sixth place. Then press the northernmost stone. The cave will shake and you will hear three doors open. Through some strange mystical power, three seals have been released on three chambers: the Ancient Tomb, Desert Ruins and Island Cave. You must now trek to these locations to capture each member of the trio.
 Desert Ruins
As you might have noticed before on passing inspection, all the chambers have six rocks encircling them. This symbolizes the six braille "eyes" of each Regi. The Desert Ruins is a dead giveaway as is- it's obviously in the desert! Regirock is located here. While these chambers have been closed tight before, entrances have been revealed. Step inside to further investigate the ruins.
At first glance, you might think you've been duped into visiting an empty room, but don't be discouraged. In reality, you've only scratched the surface to finding Regirock. Another braille message has been inscribed on the wall directly at the end of the room, which has a clue to opening the final door to the golem. "Right, right. Down, Down. Then use Strength." Peculiar isn't it? In order to open the door to Regirock, go right two spaces, down two spaces, then use the HM move Strength. In Emerald, move left, left, down, down, and then use Rock Smash.
Suddenly, you'll hear a whooshing click, and a hole will open up to another room! Inside here, you'll finally be face-to-face with one of the Pokemon alluded to all this time: Regirock.
And an interesting side note, above the Desert Ruins is a Ruin Maniac named Dusty (for more info on the trainer Dusty look in the Trainers section) who says he's looking for some ancient ruins.
 Island Cave
The most tedious golem to catch, Regice, appears at the Island Cave on Route 105, up a little ways from Dewford. On the far western side of the route, it dovetails into a small path with a few islands, where the Island Cave awaits at the end, except now, the inside of the cave is open wide for exploring.
Once you enter the chamber, the first thing you'll probably identify is Braille written on the walls again. Here, the Braille reads, "Stop and wait for time to pass twice."
In order to open the door to Regice, leave the Braille Message open for 2 minutes. It's as simple as that. (Emerald: Walk the perimeter of the room once. The door will open.)
After two minutes elapse, the Braille message will automatically close and the sealed entrance to Regice will open! Step inside its chamber to find the Pokemon slumbering in the middle of the room. Provoke it by trying to speak to it. At the sound of your voice, the Iceberg Pokemon will spring to life and you'll face off against a tenacious level 40 Regice.
 Confronting Regice
Now, you must capture the Iceberg Pokemon, Regice! Be on guard for a roughneck battle once more!
Like its brethren, Regice knows a different move in addition to the three they share: Icy Wind, a chilling blast of subzero air that lowers a Pokemon's speed as its limbs grow stiff from the biting cold. You'll also be dealing with Curse, Superpower, and AncientPower a second time.
Regice, along with the other legendary golems, has a crippling weakness against Fighting types. By now, you should have a suitable contender, such as Hariyama or Machamp. Steel, Fire, and Rock will also do double damage. When you've shaved it's HP down to a tiny speck, and possibly inflicted a status ailment mentioned previously, you're ready to capture it. Curiously, Luxury Balls are fairly effective at getting Regice, but you can always fall back on the Timer Ball if you're stuck waiting through a slew of turns. If you luck out, you'll be the proud owner of Regice! That's two down, one to go- get set to round out your trio!
 Ancient Tomb
Sort of like the Desert Ruins, the Ancient Tomb has a hiker (but not a trainer) looking for ruins. Even after you open the door, he still is looking! Well, anyway Registeel is here.
The Braille reads, "With new time, hope and love, aim to the sky in the middle." Go to the middle of the cave, and use fly. A door will appear which leads to Registeel.
Emerald: The Braille reads, "There who inherit our will, shine in the middle." Go to the middle of the cave, and use flash. A door will appear which leads to Registeel.
 Advantages of the Regis
- Enhance your Pokedex.
- They are the only legendaries in Ruby and Sapphire that can enter the Battle Tower without a ban against them.
- They have pretty good stats and movesets which benefit them in Contests and Battle Tower.
- They have learnsets with unorthodox moves that differ wildly from their types, such as Zap Cannon.
- You can brag to friends about having them, like anyone else would.
- All three can be imported into Pokémon Diamond and Pearl to get the incredibly powerful Regigigas, the trio master of the golems.
