Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid Battles

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raid Battles come in the form of the Terastal Phenomenon. Throughout the Paldea region, you will find pillars of light from crystals, and when you interact with these, you will start a Tera Raid Battle.

How Tera Raids Work in Pokemon SV

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raid Battles have different mechanics from previous raid battles in older games. Below we list the significant changes you will encounter in Tera Raids.

  • The Terastal Phenomenon is affecting pokemon in Raid Battles, this will cause the pokemon to appear with Crystal attached to them. This will change their usual Type (Fire, Water, Grass) into a different type.
  • Tera Raid Battles will now have a time limit and allow you to attack as much as you want without waiting for other players to attack.
  • Players can also Cheer which will grant Attack Boosts, Defense Boosts, and even Heal. (Limited to 3 times a battle)

As usual, after you defeat the raid battle pokemon, you will be able to catch it and even receive item rewards.
