As part of Pokémon Scarlet and Violets post-launch support, developer Game Freak will add a new Tera Raid event featuring a few noteworthy additions. The Pokémon Company announced that Eevee and Charizard — two of the most beloved Pokémon — will be featured in two upcoming limited-time Tera Raids. But when will these events go live and what can you expect from them? Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming Tera Raid Events in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

What are Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raids?

Tera Raid Battles are large-scale encounters in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that allow you to team up with friends to fight and collect Pokémon.

Tera Raid Battles let you and your friends challenge various Pokémon with the opportunity to catch them.

These appear as glowing crystals around the world, and when you interact with them, you’ll have the option to challenge Pokémon with other players and change up your roster. In the top right-hand side of the screen, you’ll see an icon that represents what type of Pokémon is available at that particular Tera Raid. With that in mind, it’s important to make sure your roster works well for the specific Pokémon you’re going to battle.

Once the battle begins, you’ll have a set amount of time to take down the Pokémon. As long as you and your group defeat the Pokémon within the allotted time, you’ll get to catch it after the battle is over.
