Typhlosion Is Coming to Pokémon Scarlet/Violet Tera Raid Battles
Hope you're ready for a tough fight
Typhlosion with the Mightiest Mark is coming to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet black crystal Tera Raid Battles! This Pokémon will be cranking up the heat from Thursday, April 13, at 5:00 p.m. to Sunday, April 16, 2023, at 4:59 p.m. PDT first and then again from Thursday, April 20, at 5:00 p.m. to Sunday, April 23, 2023, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. Typhlosion cannot normally be encountered in Paldea, and the Typhlosion appearing during this event has Ghost as its Tera Type. Be prepared—this Pokémon is a formidable foe, and it’s got the Mightiest Mark to prove it!
For the opportunity to encounter this Pokémon in Tera Raid Battles, you’ll need to have downloaded the latest Poké Portal News. You can do this by selecting Poké Portal in the X menu, then Mystery Gift, then Get Poké Portal News. After that, whenever you see a sparkling pillar of light shining from a Tera Raid crystal, you can walk up to the crystal and interact with it to start a Tera Raid Battle with a Tera Pokémon.
To challenge Typhlosion, Trainers will need to either complete the postgame events that follow the main story or join a 7-star Tera Raid Battle hosted by a Trainer who has completed those events. This special Typhlosion can be caught only once per save data. You can still participate in Tera Raid Battles against this Typhlosion if you’ve already caught it to obtain other rewards—including significant amounts of Exp. Candy for leveling up your Pokémon, treasures that can be sold at Pokémon Centers, items for improving your Pokémon’s stats, and Ghost Tera Shards for changing your Pokémon’s Tera Type.
