More 3- and 5-star Tera Raid Battles with Version-Exclusive Pokémon are coming to Scarlet & Violet at the end of next week
Normally version-exclusive, these Pokémon will be appearing in both versions during this event, giving players an opportunity to see and catch Pokémon that they wouldn't otherwise be able to catch without partnering up with players. All of these Pokémon will also be able to be encountered in a wide array of Tera Types, including rare Tera Types for each species.
To encounter these Pokémon 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.
