Nintendo just announced that more exciting content will follow after the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet on November 18th. An exciting event known as Tera Raid Battle events will allow players to take on certain Pokémon or meet Pokémon of specific Tera Types more often. At first sight, the Tera Raid crystals associated with these events may seem ordinary, yet they exude a mysterious aura. During a Tera Raid Battle, the player will join a team of four in an attempt to battle a powerful Tera Pokémon before the given time runs out.
Charizard is one of the anticipated Pokémon with Tera Type that will appear. As players make their way through the Paldea region, they may encounter black crystals that vary in appearance from the ones they normally approach for a Tera Raid Battle. This implies that the Pokémon they will encounter at these black Tera Raid crystals are far more powerful than those they encounter at regular Tera Raid crystals and that conquering them might provide even more thrilling rewards than usual. Charizard with the Mightiest Mark will arrive at black Tera Raid crystals at two different times:
- Thursday, December 1, 2022, at 4:00 p.m. – Sunday, December 4, 2022, at 3:59 p.m. PST
- Thursday, December 15, 2022, at 4:00 p.m. – Sunday, December 18, 2022, at 3:59 p.m. PST
Charizard is rarely encountered in Paldea, and the Charizard that appears during this event has Dragon as its Tera Type, making it both a formidable opponent and a powerful ally. It will use devastatingly powerful techniques in combat, making its defeat exceedingly difficult. Join forces with friends, and Trainers from across the globe to take on Charizard with the Mightiest Mark.
Regardless of when it is captured during the event, this Charizard will have the same mark, Ability, and moves. This Charizard may only be captured once per save data. Even if they have previously captured a Charizard with the Mightiest Mark, players will still be able to engage in black crystal Tera Raid Battles and collect awards. Charizard might also reappear in future events or be encountered in a variety of ways.
To engage in online Tera Raid Battles with other Trainers, a Nintendo Switch Online membership is necessary. Players must also have downloaded the most recent Poké Portal News to encounter Pokémon featured in Tera Raid Battle events.
