Tips of Clearing Tera Raid Battles

Use Your Highest Leveled Pokemon

Remember to bring your strongest Pokemon to Raids. Damaging the Raid Boss as much as possible is the main objective, so fast and strong Attackers are valuable. Using your fastest and strongest Pokemon will help you beat these Raids!

Master Type Matchups

Your Pokemon's typing matters the most when challenging raids. Be sure to choose Pokemon who can resist the Raid Pokemon's attacks, who can also hit it for super-effective damage.
To this end, Pokemon selection is key!

Type Chart: All Matchups and Effectiveness

Equip Damage Boosting Items

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet SV - Choice Band ImageChoice Band Pokemon Scarlet and Violet SV - Choice Specs ImageChoice Specs Pokemon Scarlet and Violet SV - Life Orb ImageLife Orb

Examples of Damage Boosting Items

An effective way to boost your Pokemon's offense is by equipping them with items that boost their damage. Choice Band and Choice Specs are especially powerful in Tera Raids because you will be repeatedly using the same move.

Choose Pokemon That Deal Massive Damage in One Turn

Use Pokemon that can inflict lots of damage in one turn

Tera Raid Pokemon have defenses that allow them take a large of damage. As such we recommend using Pokemon can inflict a large amount of damage in one turn or, if possible use move that provide powerful buffs or debuffs.

Screech Lower's the target's Defense by two stages. The move's accuracy is 85%, so use with caution.
Metal Sound Lowers the target's Special Defense by 2 stages. The move's accuracy is 85%, so use with caution.
Helping Hand Increases the damage of an ally Pokemon's attack by 50%.
Taunt The opponent Pokemon can't use Status Moves.
Other Moves That Buff Attack or Special Attack Moves such as Swords Dance or Nasty Plot should also be considered

Invite Others To Raid Battles

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet SV - Tera Raid Requests

6 Star Tera Raid Battles are fairly difficult to win when playing alone, so we recommend inviting other to join you when possible. Feel free to use our message board to find partners for online battling.

Maximize the Potential of Your Pokemon

Raise Your Pokemon to the Maximum level

Raising your Pokemon to level 100 as well taking part in Hyper Training will allow you maximize your Pokemon's battling potential. this will not only help you in Tera Raid Battles, but also completing the main story as well, so put in the extra effort to train and breed the best Pokemon.

When EV training Pokemon for Raid Battles, since Speed is not as important, placing stats into HP and Attack/ Special Attack is recommended.

How to Train and Breed Pokemon

Make Use of Cheers

Use Cheers to raise Attack, Defense, or Heal your party

Make sure to make use of Cheers during Tera Raid Battle to increase the Attack, Defense, and heal your Pokemon. Do note that cheering will take up one of your attack turns and you can only use 3 cheers for each Tera Raid Battle.
