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

We have Hisuian Typhlosion at home

It’s raiding, it’s pouring, but I’m certainly not snoring. 7-Star Typhlosion has officially arrived, testing the mettle of hardcore trainers once again. If you’ve participated in Tera Raid events to this point, then you know the drill by now. If not, as long as you fulfill the prerequisites, you’ll be in this fight with everyone else before you know it.

Let’s go over how to unlock and subsequently find Typhlosion.

Here are when the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Typhlosion events start

  • April 14 – April 16, 2023
  • April 21 – April 23, 2023

Typhlosion 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.

Locate the Typhlosion 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 Ghost-Type icon to locate Typhlosion. Typhlosion will always sport a Ghost 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 Typhlosion 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 Typhlosion 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 Typhlosion. 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 Typhlosion 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 a Typhlosion card will appear. If not, you’ll have to wait a minute or two for the check for new postings prompt to appear again.
