Update [Sat 3rd Dec, 2022 00:30 GMT]: This event is currently ongoing, so if you haven’t joined in on the fun yet, do so while you still can. This Tera Raid Battle will last until December 4th and will take place again from December 15th to 18th.
Original article [Thu 1st Dec, 2022 03:00 GMT]: After a special “Eevee Spotlight”, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are now hosting their second Tera Raid Battle event. This time it is the powerful Charizard.
This first event runs from December 1st to 4th and will run again from December 15th to 18th. Charizard does not appear to be native to the Paldea region, so it is a rare loot. This particular one comes with a Dragon as a Tera Type. Trainers can expect him to fight in combat with some “crushingly powerful moves”. This Charizard will have the same mark, ability, and moves no matter when it is caught, and can only be caught once per save file.
It’s worth noting that Black Crystal Tera Raid Battles can only be contested after certain post-game events have been completed. However, players who have not completed these events can still participate in these battles by joining the battle of another trainer (in a multiplayer group or using a link code).
