Tera Raid Battle Tips

Have At Least One High-Level Pokemon

Have At Least One High-Level Pokemon

During Tera Raid battles, even without enough badge, the Pokemon will follow your commands. To make Tera Raid Battles easier, it is recommended to catch a high-level Pokemon in possession. If you do not have one, catching one in the wild can be done.

The Pokemon in Tera Raid Battle appears is Terastallize state from the start. Therefore, fight it with type of Pokemon which can exploit the weakness of Tera type. However, the moves the enemy Pokemon use have nothing to do with Tera type so avoid using Pokemon that might be weak to the original type of the Pokemon.

Terastal Guide

Terastallize After Three Attacks

Terastallize After Three Attacks

If you attack 3 times, you can use Terastallize which greatly boosts your Pokemon thus always use it when possible. However, transforming consumes time so take note of the time limit and be careful of time out.

Cheer To Support Allies

Cheer To Support Allies

You can cheer instead of using your Pokemon to attack. Cheer can be done 3 times at max during Raid Battles which can affect all allied Pokemon in the field.

Go All Out!Increases Attack & Sp. ATK
Hang Tough!Increases Def & Sp. DEF
Heal Up!Recovers half of the maximum HP of all allies

Fainted Pokemon Can Be Revived

Even if your Pokemon's HP is reduced to zero during a raid, you can revive it and rejoin the battle. But remember that the time required for reviving gradually becomes longer each time it is done which can consume a significant amount of time.
