Missed out on Walking Wake and Iron Leaves back in March? Don't miss your second chance to catch these Paradox Pokémon in Scarlet & Violet now!

Walking Wake and Iron Leaves
The Paradox Pokémon, Walking Wake and Iron Leaves are once again appearing in 5-star Tera Raid Battles in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, and will be available in game until May 14th, at 11:59pm (UTC). Walking Wake will appear exclusively for players with Pokémon Scarlet, while Iron Leaves will be appearing exclusively in Pokémon Violet. All Walking Wake and Iron Leaves encountered during this debut event for the Pokémon will have the Water Psychic Tera Types respectively.

Similar to the Pokémon from the 7-star Mightiest Mark Tera Raids, the Paradox Pokémon from these special raids can only be caught once per save data. Players who already caught them back in March, or who catch them during this latest appearance, may still participate in additional Tera Raid Battles against them together with other players in order to earn additional battle rewards. The two Paradox Pokémon may appear again in other events, or be encounterable in different ways in the future.

To encounter Walking Wake and Iron Leaves in Tera Raid Battles, players will need to first download the latest Poké Portal News. If players have connected their Nintendo Switch system to the internet while playing Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, this will happen automatically. Players can also manually download the Poké Portal News by selecting Poké Portal from the X menu, and then selecting Mystery Gift, and then Check Poké Portal News. After that, players will be able to start a Tera Raid Battle simply by walking up to and interacting with an appropriate Tera Crystal in-game. In the overworld, the Tera Crystals associated with these raids can be differentiated from other Tera Raid crystals by their aura, which is mostly clearly visible when looking at crystals on the map.

A paid Nintendo Switch Online membership is required to participate in Tera Raid Battles with other Trainers online, however players will still be able to challenge these Tera Raid Battles solo (supported by AI), or with other Trainers in local play without a membership.
