Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are churning out the events that players can interact with day to day. One of the most popular events in Scarlet and Violet is the 7-Star Tera Raids. These raids bring in the most difficult challenges in Scarlet and Violet featuring Pokemon that cannot be caught in the game under normal conditions.

It is the perfect way to get a unique Pokemon after a difficult challenge. It is also great for Pokemon collectors who want to expand their roster to the maximum. This time around, Hisuian Samurott is up to the plate. Here, we will go over if players can find themselves a Shiny Hisuian Samurott in the 7-Star Raids in Scarlet and Violet.

The answer is no, Hisuian Samurott cannot be shiny during 7-Star Tera Raids. Black Crystal Tera Raids are not like the normal raids players would see in Scarlet and Violet. These are special raids where players are trying to catch a Pokemon with the Mightiest Mark. This mark is a symbol of proof that they participated in the raid.

Because of that, players can only catch Hisuian Samurott one time. Since that is the case, there is no way for players to hunt for this Shiny Pokemon. If it is one and done, players would miss out if they did not get Shiny Hisuian Samurott. As unfortunate as it is, players can never get Shiny Hisuian Samurott through 7-Star Tera Raids.

If players are dead set on getting Shiny Hisuian Samurott in Scarlet and Violet, it is still possible to do so but it will take a lot of effort. The first thing that players will want to do is get themselves a copy of Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Then they will want to get themselves a shiny Oshawott in that game specifically.

From there, players will have to evolve Shiny Oshawott all the way to Hisuian Samurott in Legends Arceus. Once that is done, they can trade it over to Scarlet or Violet through Pokemon Home. There is no other way to get Shiny Hisuian Samurott in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet at this time. Of course, trading is always an option as well.
