Slow Start causes the Attack stat and Speed stat to be halved during the first five turns in battle. This counter is reset if the Pokémon is switched out.

No, not really.

You will have to wait the 5 turns and take some damage.
There is a way where you can shorten the time of Slow start, well not really since it can't learn those moves(maybe in doubles it could be possible).

The only way you can do that is by using Skill swap, Worry seed, or count on the opponent to use Gastro acid(not a very good idea).

>If this Ability is replaced due to a move like Skill Swap or Worry Seed or suppressed by Gastro Acid, the Pokémon's stats return to normal.

But, since it can't even learn those moves, there is basically no way.


Hope I helped.

i didnt know regigigas can't attack during slow start  effect :o
ok great information, thanks :D
Huh? o.o It can attack, it can do everything it normally can, just his attack and speed are halved.
You can always stall by using Substitute in Single Battles.
forget i read bad.. but thanks again xD
Regigigas cannot learn Protect Sir Dan :P
Oh yeah so it can't, it can still use Substitute though :3
Another reason why Regigigas sucks xD :P
Worry seed is the best way imo, and works in double battles.
