Hydreigon and Dragapult Will Appear in the Next Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raid Event

The upcoming Tera Raid Event for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has been revealed to include two Paldean Pokedex pseudo-legendaries. Depending on whatever version of the game they possess, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players will be able to locate unique raids involving either Hydreigon or Dragapult during the event.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, like other entries in the series, include some version-exclusive Pokemon, requiring players to trade with others in order to complete their Pokedex finally. Pseudo-legendaries Hydreigon and Dragapult, two of the more brutal monsters found throughout the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex, will be available in large numbers during the event – but only in their respective games.



The Hydreigon and Dragapult Tera Raid Event will take place from 00:00 UTC on January 6, 2023, to 23:59 UTC on January 8, 2023. During this period, players may encounter Hydreigon (Pokemon Scarlet) or Dragapult (Pokemon Violet) more regularly in Tera Raids strewn around Paldea, enabling them to capture these powerful Pokemon without having to level up and develop their pre-evolutions. However, if the Pokemon Scarlet, Violet Salamence and Tyranitar Tera Raid Events are any indications, this event will not include Herba Mystica as a potential prize. The ability to capture these uncommon Pokemon in the first place will most likely be the key prize.

Throughout the event, Hydreigon and Dragapult will be able to appear in four and five-star raids, giving them the opportunity to use their Hidden Abilities. While every Hydreigon is guaranteed to have to Levitate since it is the species’ sole conceivable ability, Dragapult discovered in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raids may have the Hidden Ability Cursed Body. While Cursed Body is far from Dragapult’s best talent, the prospect of its existing allows for some effective mind games while facing others.

But this event is unlikely to be as challenging as the seven-star Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Cinderace Tera Raid Event, Hydreigon and Dragapult remain two solid Pokemon with exceptionally high base numbers that make them a substantial danger in competitive play – though Dragapult’s adaptability and sometimes unequalled speed tier lead in it being historically better when compared to Hydreigon, who is hindered by a devastating 4x weakness to Fairy.
