Click to Enlarge

The location of Tera Raid and the Pokemon that appear can be changed as the Switch's body time is advanced. It is especially useful when targeting a high Individual Value Pokemon in a high difficulty Raid, and if the Pokemon that appears is not the one you are looking for, you can reset it.

Mass Outbreak's Pokemon Changes

Massive Pokemon changes

Originally, Mass Outbreak's Pokemon changed at the time of the date change, but we were able to confirm the change even after advancing the actual time by one day. Those who want to use Mass Outbreak to carefully select Shinies will especially benefit.

Porto Marinada's Bid Content Changes

The content of the Bid being done in Porto Marinada can also be changed by changing the time. The entire lineup changes, so it is great to be able to reset if you have already done a Bid or don't find the item you are looking for.

Disadvantages Have Not Been Confirmed At This Time

We have tried changing the hours, but could not confirm any disadvantages, such as not being able to use the facilities of the once-a-day system.

Wait For The Time To Pass Over Time

In Pokemon SV, the time cycle (morning/afternoon/night) gradually changes as the time passes in the game. Play and wait until you get the time frame you are looking for.

Change The Time On Switch

※Even if you change the main unit time, the time zone may not change.
※The following is a description of the procedure that we have tested and found to have a high probability of success.

  1. Exit The Game After Saving
  2. Finish the game after writing Save

    After Saving, return to the Switch home screen and exit the game. At this point, remember whether the time in the game is day or night.

  3. Select Settings On The Switch's Home Screen

  7. Advance The Switch's Time By 34 Minutes
  8. If you want to change the time zone in the game from morning, afternoon to night, you will have to advance the time on the Switch by the same amount. Set the clock on the Switch to exactly 34 minutes later and it will be night in the game

  9. Start The Game And Check If The Change Of Time Was Successful
  10. Start the game and check if the time zone change was successful.

    After setting the time, start the game and check to see if it changes at the targeted time. If it has not changed, try restarting it 3 minutes earlier or later from the time advanced by 34 minutes.
