In order to do 7 Star Raids you need to interact with the black Tera Raid crystals. To find them you should have 6-star raids unlocked and there should be an ongoing 7-star raid available. These two are the main criteria you must fulfill to be able to participate in them. Let us learn about them both:

  • Unlocking 6-star raid battles: You can only access 6-star tera raids after you beat the post-game, complete 10 successful 5-star raids, and beat the Academy Ace Tournament.
    1. Start by completing all 3 paths of the game.
    2. After you become the Champion Professor Jacq will inform you about the new raids available throughout Paldea.
    3. These are 5-star raids, beat 10 of them.
    4. Go back and challenge all 8 gym leaders.
    5. Participate and win the Academy Ace Tournament.
  • This will make you eligible for 6-star raids. Which also qualifies you for entering 7-star raids.

Now, the thing is 7 Tera Raid Battles work differently from the 6-star raids and lower. This is a special event raid, so the game should announce such events on Twitter, for when a new 7-star raid is about to take place.

At the time of writing this article, there should be upcoming 7-star raids starting on December 15, 2022, and lasting till December 18, 2022. These are the 7-star raids for Charizard with the Tera-type Dragon. And even after this event, there should be more 7-star Tera raids in the future, featuring other powerful Pokemon.
