PSA: This weekend is your second chance at the Pokémon Scarlet & Violet’s Charizard Tera Raid event

After that, it’ll be anyone’s guess as to how they distribute it

At the top of December, Game Freak held a special event that allowed players to capture a level 100 7-star raid Charizard in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, but it only ran for a few days. Well, you have another chance!

The event is back on as of last night (December 15), and will run through the afternoon/evening of December 18 (US). To find the Charizard, all you need to do is search for a pulsing dragon Tera Raid iconor use the online menu to navigate and browse for Charizard raids. If you’re interested in whether or not it’s worth your time, we have a full rundown of the Charizard’s moves and loadout here, as well as a full guide on how to unlock higher-end raids.

I’m calling this a second chance, not a last chance, because…

The official Pokemon site has this little blurb to let folks know that this isn’t the be-all-end-all of getting a Charizard in Scarlet & Violet:

“Charizard may appear again in other events or be encounterable in different ways in the future.”

Hopefully that process will not involve walking into a video game retailer; but it could also just be a Pokemon Home early-use bonus, or something super simple like that.
