Best Tips for Defeating 6-Star Raids

It’s important to come prepared for 6-star raids as they are the hardest type of content available in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet right now. Let’s go into some of the best tips to help you succeed in these raids.

Check Terrastralized Type

Houndoom will be Water-type on its Tera form based on the top-right symbol.

Each Pokemon in Tera Raids will have a different type than normal. The new type can be seen at the top right part of the raid screen, before joining the actual raid.

Check the type and bring Pokemon with attacks that are super effective against that type. As long as you’re prepared with the right type, and the other players do the same, you shouldn’t have much of an issue beating it.

Coordinate with Others

Tera Raids are a type of content that requires 4 players. While you can do them solo and the game matches you with 3 AI, this isn’t recommended for high-star raids.

Ideally, bring your friends or use online play to find a lobby. It’s important to find other players with Pokemon as strong as yours.

In addition, you can use the in-game quick chat feature to coordinate your attacks. Just make sure to keep note of which moves the others are using.

If someone just poisoned the enemy Pokemon, the last thing you want to do is Poison it too. You’re simply wasting a move.

Optimize Your Pokemon

In 6-star raids, it’s important to bring the best Pokemon possible. Start by checking out our guide on the best new Pokemon in Generation 9. There are many strong Pokemon there to help you beat 6-star raids.

After that, make sure your chosen Pokemon all have the right attributes. It’s important to be as high level as possible (ideally 100) and have the best moveset for that Pokemon.

In addition, make sure to have the right nature for each Pokemon and equip it with the best possible held item.


All in all, that’s everything you need to know on how to defeat 6-star raids in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Check the Pokemon’s terrastralized type, coordinate with your teammates, and optimize your Pokemon to reach its full potential. Following these steps will ensure you’ll defeat the raid without issues.
