The Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Hydreigon & Dragapult Tera Raid Battle Event offers players a shot at securing powerful Dragon-type Pokemon.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players are receiving multiple opportunities to secure powerful Pokemon and valuable rewards through Tera Raid Battle Events. Hydreigon and Dragapult are now up for grabs in a Tera Raid Battle.
While the Cinderace Tera Raid Event is set to return to the game for those who missed it the first time around, the focus has first shifted to the two Dragon-type Pokemon.
They won’t be easy to defeat so here’s everything you need to know about the Scarlet and Violet Hydreigon and Dragapult Tera Raid Battle Event.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Hydreigon & Dragapult Tera Raid Battle start date
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Hydreigon & Dragapult Tera Raid Event started on January 6, 2023, and players will only have a few days to complete it until it comes to a close on January 8, 2023.
Hydreigon and Dragapult are version-exclusive Pokemon, therefore the Hydreigon Tera Raid Battle is exclusive to Scarlet, and the Dragapult Event will only appear in Violet. Both powerful Pokemon can be found in 4-Star and 5-Star Tera Raids across Paldea.
The Tera Types for Hydreigon and Dragapult will be random, which presents players with a great opportunity to catch a pseudo-Legendary with a unique Tera Type.
How to beat Hydreigon & Dragapult Tera Raid Event in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Considering that the Tera Types of Hydreigon and Dragapult will be random, you can’t truly prepare for the Tera Raid Battle before you begin the Event. Instead, you can look to prepare two or three Pokemon that perform well in Tera Raid Battles regardless of type.

If you don’t have a Sylveon or Iron Hands, you’ll want to make sure you’re using high-level Pokemon with decent bulk to soak up attacks and at least one status move to lower your target’s stats. Also, it’s important to remember to Terastallize, as it deals more damage to Tera Raid Shields.
Keep in mind that you can only access 5-Star Raids after completing the three main story paths in Scarlet and Violet.
