While the legendary Pokemons come with a change in how you encounter them, the games also have introduced Pokemons that are event-specific. As we have seen in the previous games, event Pokemon are rare to come by. Scarlet and Violet introduce many Pokemon to the game which are not available on the regional dex.

How to unlock the 7-Star Tera Raids?

Upon launching the game, players do not immediately have access to 7-Star Tera Raids. Unlocking them requires specific steps. To access 7-Star Tera Raids, trainers must complete all three story paths in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, which are Victory Road, Starfall Street, and Path of Legends. Additionally, they need to finish the final quest, The Way Home.

After completing the main story, trainers progress to post-game content. They must defeat all eight Gym Leaders again and complete the Academy Ace Tournament. Following the Ace Tournament, they are tasked with hosting and winning 5-Star Tera Raids. Subsequently, they can tackle the 6-Star Tera Raids.

After successfully participating in 6-Star Tera Raids, trainers can unlock 7-Star Tera Raids. However, they must await a dedicated 7-Star Tera Raid event. These events are associated with special occasions, and the key is to locate them. When a special event commences, the Black Tera Raid Crystals transform into 7-Star Tera Raids, marked by a unique white glow and a dedicated icon on the Paldea map.
