How to find the Inteleon Tera Raid in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

It’s Inteleon time

Recommended Videos

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are at it again, throwing another 5-Star Tera Raid event in our laps to entertain us over the weekend. It’s Inteleon, it’s Tera Ice Type, and honestly, I got nothing. I can’t even say anything special about the game Inteleon comes from, since Cinderace stole its thunder on that front.

That said, there’s never a bad time to jump on the Tera Raid bandwagon, and we’re here to help as always. To that end, here’s how you’ll unlock and subsequently find Inteleon.

Here are when the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Inteleon events start

  • April 28 – April 30, 2023
  • May 5 – May 7, 2023

Inteleon will only appear during these two weekends.

Make sure you have high-end raids unlocked

Naturally, if you’re looking to challenge a 7-Star Raid, you should be able to cleanly defeat 6-Star raids. To unlock these, make sure you’ve completed all the core story paths and watched the credits roll after The Way Home story concludes. From here, you’ll need to finish the post-game quests that immediately unlock. After fighting a handful of raids with a 4-Star difficulty minimum, 7-Star raids will be available on the overworld and via online play while they are active.

Check out our detailed guide for unlocking high-end raids.

Locate the Inteleon raid den on the main map

With these prerequisites behind you, 7-Star Raids will finally appear on your map. Look for a dark flashing Ice-Type icon to locate Inteleon. Inteleon will always sport an Ice Tera Type, which should streamline both finding the encounter and preparing for it. If it does not appear, go into your main menu and press the L button to connect to the internet.

You can choose to either fight Inteleon with a group of CPU companions or let other players enter your lobby. Joining other players is highly recommended unless you’ve discovered a solo-viable strategy for the fight. Make sure to bring a level 100 Pokemon with maxed EVs and IVs to help your allies.

Search for a Inteleon raid if one isn’t available!

If you wish to farm this encounter for the sweet loot that it drops, you’ll want to join other rooms online. This is fortunately a simple process.

Connect to the internet, then select the Poke Portal in the main menu. Select Tera Raid Battle, then search for a silhouette of Inteleon. The card will be yellow with seven blue stars, so you can’t miss it. Many people will be running this event while it’s live, so connecting to a room may take a minute. If your connection fails, just try again until it works.

If no Inteleon raids show up, wait for the “check for new postings” sign to light up on the bottom right side of the screen. Press X and hopefully an Inteleon card will appear. If not, you’ll have to wait a minute or two for the check for new postings prompt to appear again.
