How To Join Raids In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet

Here's a detailed guide on how to join Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

In the new titles, Scarlet & Violet, you can participate in Tera Raids battles to fight and catch strong Pokemon. This mechanic is similar to the Gigantamax in Sword and Shield. Beating these raids will give you valuable rewards to strengthen your team. But to beat these Tera variants, you need help. You can fight them in a team of four trainers. This can include NPCs or your friends online. NPCs are not that useful and can often be a hindrance because of the Timer. So it’s recommended that you fight alongside your friends.
