From Bulbanews, your community Pokémon newspaper.
You may think Regigigas is great because it’s hard to get, but it’s rather underwhelming considering it's such a challenge to capture.

Phione is basically a lesser Manaphy, because it has less moves and lower stats than Manaphy, and it itself don’t have its own exclusive moves to differentiate itself from Manaphy. Needless to say, there is not much reason to use Phione over Manaphy, and even then, there are other Pokémon better than Phione in pretty much any role. It is actually not easy to get Phione itself. Obtaining Manaphy is already not an easy task because you need a Pokémon Ranger game to finally get the egg to transfer. As for Phione, you need to do an extra step to get it, which is to breed Manaphy with Ditto. This is an appropriate difficulty to get Manaphy, but for Phione, this obtained method is considered troublesome. Still, you can possess an unlimited supply if you so desire.
