Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: New Tera Raid Boss Revealed for Gamers

Trainers are soon to compete in a seven-star Tera raid battle from the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Violet title. This battle will present a rare starter Pokemon as the opponents. This news came shortly after the end of the battles against Inteleon the Unrivaled in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, giving players a new challenge to face.

In the ninth generation of Pokemon games, Tera raid battles were introduced, and each battle included a starter Pokemon for trainers to battle. In April, Samurott and Typhlosion, both from Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and Inteleon from Pokemon Sword and Shield were featured as the starting Pokemon. Although Inteleon was not as challenging as the previously encountered raids, the next Tera raid Pokemon is an uncommon foe in more than one way. Inteleon proved to be a simpler battle compared to its predecessors.

Fans of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet recently created an amazing makeover of Miraidon that was inspired by Monster Hunter. Check it out here!

Serebii.net reports that the ninth seven-star Tera raid battle in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will feature Chesnaught the Unrivaled, with the Rock-type as its Tera Type. This raid commences on Friday, May 12 at 00:00 UTC and comes to a close on Sunday, May 14 at 23:59 UTC. A repeat run will happen the weekend after, from May 19 to May 21. Chesnaught is the evolved form of Chespin, the Grass-type starter Pokemon from Pokemon X and Y on the 3DS. It may be overshadowed by other starters such as Greninja, however it is an intimidating opponent from the Kalos region with high physical attack and defense stats, and an expansive move pool.

Chesnaught, one of the seven-star Tera raid bosses in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, will possess the Mighty Mark and its Hidden Ability, Bulletproof, which renders it immune to bomb and ball moves, like Energy Ball and Aura Sphere. As its signature move, it has Spiky Shield, which protects it from damage and can cause harm to any Pokemon that makes physical contact. To use it as a bulky physical attacker, Chesnaught can also employ moves such as Seed Bomb, Stone Edge, Close Combat, and Earthquake. However, since Rock-type Pokemon are vulnerable to Grass, Water, Ground, Steel, and Fighting-type attacks, trainers can benefit by having a strong Pokemon like Annihilape or a defensive wall like Corviknight on their side to take down the Spiny Armor Pokemon.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players have until Sunday, May 14, to attempt to conquer Walking Wake and Iron Leaves, on top of their upcoming battle against Chesnaught the Unrivaled. In other words, Trainers have an abundance of in-game challenges to tackle in the near future.

The games Pokemon Scarlet and Violet can now be played on Nintendo Switch.
