Regeneration is a gameplay mechanic where the player can reset their rank once they have reached the maximum level of 50 in Titanfall. There are 9 levels of Regeneration. Regeneration is also in Titanfall 2, but differs largely in some cases.
Regeneration is a mysterious process which certain Pilots may be invited to undergo. The exact process is not fully known, but the end result will "refresh" a Pilot's body, allowing them a number of combat enhancements to enhance the Pilot's rate at which they can learn and react to information. This process, however, comes at a large cost; the Pilot undergoing regeneration will lose some of their memory during the regeneration process, requiring them to learn skills or earn equipment again (presumably by having to re-train their skills on how to use specialised equipment such as weapons).To undergo the regeneration process, esteemed Pilots will be given an invitation by an Advocate, giving them a set of co-ordinates in a city on the Frontier to which they must attend. There is no negotiation in regeneration; a simple "Yes" or "No" are the only accepted answers.Upon arriving at the relevant location, Pilots are reported to notice mysterious medical contractors and a number of surgical tools and components laid out, which are used to augment the Pilot during the surgery. This process utilises repurposed IMC (specifically, Hammond Industries) and ARES Division technology, which is used in a BIOS to "boot up" the Pilot's consciousness once the process is complete. It is possible that Pilot memories and personalities are stored in an external storage system (similar to a Simulacrum) during surgery and put back into the Pilot's body once the process is complete, requiring this process of reactivation.
When a player reaches level 50 and completes the required challenges, the player will be able to regenerate. Doing this will reset all of their weapons, challenges, etc. The player will keep their Burn Cards, Titan Chassis', Credits, access to the Black Market, Titan Insignias, and Burn Card Slots. This will also multiply experience points earned by the player, depending on Regeneration level.
Note that you cannot go to the next level of regeneration without completing the prerequisite regeneration challenges for the next generation (only for the first game, Titanfall), and that prerequisite regeneration challenges can be finished before reaching level 50.

You will get a unique chip indicating to others your Gen status. |
Years of battle have taken their toll. We can regenerate you... at a cost.
Your body can be restored. But your memory and your experience...all will be lost.
When you awaken you will respawn a [next level] generation Pilot.
You will be better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than before.”

Would you like to go to the next gen?”

The only main difference between regenerating in Titanfall and in Titanfall 2 is that in the second game there are no prerequisite challenges, weapons and other pilot non-cosmetic items already bought using credits will always be unlocked, weapons will always keep their level, and the same goes for Titans. All cosmetic (e.g. camos, banners, etc.) items are always kept.
It is optional to regenerate, but if players accept it then they earn a patch that signifies that they are generation X.
Weapon, Faction and Titan Regeneration Edit
As of Titanfall 2, weapons, factions and Titans can also be regenerated. However, they do not work along the same lines as the main Pilot regeneration. Instead, upon reaching level 20 with the weapon, faction or Titan in question, the equipment will then have a level modifier of "2.00, 2.01, 2.02" etc until once again reaching level 2.20, where the modifier will change to 3.00. This trend can continue up until a maximum level of 100.00 and you keep all mods and cosmetics in regeneration. In the case of weapons and Titans it will result in a new cosmetic item.
