How to Unlock and Join 5 and 6 Star Tera Raids

After Pokemon Shield and Sword’s Max Raid Battles, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet now introduce us to Tera Raid Battles to catch Terastallized Pokemon with friends. Like Max Raids, there are certain rarities and difficulties that would make raids more interesting and catch rarer Pokemon with better stats. This is how you can unlock 5 and 6 Star Tera Raid Battles that you can work with your friends or any trainer online.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduced another feature to increase Pokemon’s power in Gen 9, similar to Mega Evolution and Dynamaxing. We are introduced to Terastallizing which gives a Pokémon another type, in addition to its current type. Tera’s types in a nutshell will replace that Pokémon’s offensive type, but add to their types defensively. Basically, terrastalizing makes the most sense as a defensive strategy in most cases. Terrastalling also increases the Pokémon’s tera-type Attack, similar to STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) moves but increased even more. This will cover some of your Pokemon’s weaknesses and become stronger for other types with your chosen tera type.

Trainers in the Paldea region can participate in Tera Raid Battles with other players for a chance to catch a strong Pokemon of certain Tera types. The higher the difficulty of the raid battle, the stronger, rarer, and better Pokemon will appear along with awesome clear bonus rewards.

In order to unlock the 5 and 6 star Tera Raid battles in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, there are certain requirements that you need to meet.

To unlock 5-star Tera Raid Battles, all you have to do is first beat the game and hit its end credits. It’s as simple as that.

Unlocking 6-star Tera Raid Battles would require more work than clearing the game for the first time. Players will have to conquer the post-game tournament, as well as participate in numerous 5-star raids requested by Professor Jacq. Please note that raids must come from your own game instead of joining via online play. You can invite others into your game to help you and it will count as a full raid towards the required total.

Having defeated many of said raids, Jacq will call back and state that there are now incredibly powerful Tera Raids with Black Crystals. The Black Crystal Raids are 6-star Raids, so it’s best to come with friends to complete it. They have the rarest items once you complete these raids, especially some Herba Mystica which will allow you to get more bonuses in the future. There are some Tera Raids that have Black Tera crystals, classified as 7-Star Battles, which will offer even rarer rewards such as Ability Capsules and Bottle Caps. This will surely help each player to build their ideal Pokémon team.
