By the entrance, someone will stop you from entering. But if you’ve already beaten Cynthia then someone will come to give you permission. You can then enter freely without restrictions.
Head to the Lowest Point of the Snowpoint Temple
You’re going to have to solve some puzzles along the way. Once you’re at the bottom of the Snowpoint Temple, slide around the ice in the correct pattern and you’ll eventually encounter Regigigas. At that point, you can capture the legendary Pokémon.
