Can Tera Type Be Inherited?

Cannot Be Inherited

Pokemon born from eggs always have the same Tera Type as the original type. It cannot be inherited from the parents.

Please Note That It Is A Reference To The Type Of Pokemon Before Evolution

When hatching Pokemon with different types before and after evolution, such as Eevee and Azurill, from Eggs, you need to pay attention to the Tera Type. Eevee, for example, has a fixed Tera Type of Normal, which makes it difficult to use Terastal at the destination of evolution.

Should You Reroll Tera Type?

Reroll In Raid Is Not Recommended Because It Is Inefficient

Careful selection in Raid is inefficient and deprecated.

▲The probability of getting the target Tera Type is 1/18

Pokemon that appear in Terra Raid have Tera types other than their own, but it is very difficult to reroll them because they appear at random from 18 different Tera types. It'd be better to think of it as a lucky chance if it happens to appear, and using Tera Shards is still the basic way to change Tera type.

Easy To Reroll During Pickup Events

Somewhat easier to target during pickup events.

During the Tera Raid pickup event, the target Pokemon are more likely to appear in the Raid, making it easier to reroll Tera Type than usual. About 10 pickup Pokemon Raids will appear on the map, and you can reset Raid information (including Tera Types) by changing the time, so don't miss the chance to reroll during the event.

Some Can Be Rerolled With Unique Symbols

Tera Pokemon

Some Pokemon appear in the field as unique symbols. Even if you have captured one, after some time another a Pokemon of the same type will reappear in the exact place, so you can use this opportunity to reroll and choose the best Nature and Individual Value to your liking. However, keep in mind that the Terastal type of Pokemon that appears is fixed, so if you want a different Terastal type, you must continue your hunting in raids.

What Is Tera Type?

The Type Of Status During Terastal Phenomenon

Tera Type

Tera Type is the type that a Pokemon changes to when being Terastalized. Even if it was a Dual-type Pokemon, it will only be one Tera Type when being Terastalized.

Terastal Guide

The Power of Tera Type Moves Increases After Terastalizing


OriginalTera TypePower of Moves
DragonFlyingDragonDragon moves are doubled
Flying moves are 1.5x
DragonFlyingFireDragon/Flying/Fire moves are 1.5x

According to the system, when using the same type moves as the Pokemon type, the power will be increased by 1.5 times, but when using the Tera Type moves during Terastal Phenomenon, the power will also be increased by 1.5 times. In this case, if the original type is same as the Tera Type, the power will be doubled.

Tera Blast Status To Tera Type

Terastal image

The new move "Tera Blast" is a move that changes its own type depending on the Pokemon's Tera Type. This move inflicts damage using the Attack or Sp. Atk stat - whichever is higher. Take note that it will be a normal move if you use it without Terastal.
