Great Tusk and Iron Treads to feature in 5-star Tera Raid Battles in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet this weekend

Great Tusk and Iron Treads
The version-exclusive Paradox Pokémon, Great Tusk and Iron Treads will be making their first appearance in a 5-star Tera Raid Battle event in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, with the event running in game from May 19th at midnight (UTC), through until May 21st at 11:59pm (UTC). Great Tusk will appear exclusively for players with Pokémon Scarlet, while Iron Treads will be appearing exclusively in Pokémon Violet. Great Tusk and Iron Treads will both be able to be encountered in a wide array if Tera Types, potentially rare Tera Types for both species.

To encounter Great Tusk and Iron Treads in Tera Raid Battles, players will need to first download the latest Poké Portal News. If players have connected their Nintendo Switch system to the internet while playing Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, this will happen automatically. Players can also manually download the Poké Portal News by selecting Poké Portal from the X menu, and then selecting Mystery Gift, and then Check Poké Portal News. After that, players will be able to start a Tera Raid Battle simply by walking up to and interacting with an appropriate Tera Crystal in-game. In the overworld, the Tera Crystals associated with these raids can be differentiated from other Tera Raid crystals by their aura, which is mostly clearly visible when looking at crystals on the map.

A paid Nintendo Switch Online membership is required to participate in Tera Raid Battles with other Trainers online, however players will still be able to challenge these Tera Raid Battles solo (supported by AI), or with other Trainers in local play without a membership.
