Tera Raids are a new feature in Generation 9’s Pokemon Scarlet and Violet games. Similarly to Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Max Raid Battles, Tera Raids lets you team up with up to three other friends or NPCs to take on powerful Terrastalized Pokemon in battle and capture them if you’re successful. Tera Raids are a handy feature, allowing you to farm rare items, such as EXP Candies and TM materials, and capture Pokemon with unique Tera Types. However, it can be frustrating when you only seem to encounter low-level raids with weak Pokemon and fairly common rewards, so we’ve covered everything you need to know about improving this. Here’s everything you need to know about how to increase Tera Raid Star level in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
