The newest Pokémon Tera Raid battle is on the way, and we now know that it will feature Hisuian Typhlosion. This spooky Ghost and Fire-type Pokémon will be arriving just in time for Halloween and will come with the Mightiest Mark. However, defeating this Tera Raid and obtaining Hisuain Typhlosion is no easy task. 7-Star Raids are the hardest content in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. 

Because of this, players will need to make sure they are bringing counters to not only the featured Pokemon's main type but also their Tera type. This article will cover everything you need to know about the 7-Star Hisuian Typhlosion Tera Raid event in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, including when it starts, what the best counters are, and more.

What Time Do Hisuian Typhlosion Event Raids Start?

It was announced that the Hisuian Typhlosion event raid will run from 00:00 UTC on November 3 through 23:59 UTC on November 5 and again from November 10 through 12. This is according to multiple sources, including Serebii. Players will only be able to obtain Hisuian Typhlosion during these two periods (unless it is featured in a future raid den). However, players can always trade for a copy. 

That being said, Hisuian Typhlosion is one Pokémon all trainers should definitely try and acquire. In the past, it has been possible to take a Tera Raid Pokémon, breed its base form, and trade that to newer players struggling with the harder content. However, Cyndaquil will not evolve into Hisuian Typhlosion outside of the Hisui region. Additionally, 7-Star raid Pokémon can only be obtained once per account, meaning people are less likely to trade them.

Hisuian Typhlosion is usually a Fire and Ghost-type Pokémon. However, during this Tera Raid event, it will have the Fire Tera type. That being said, it will still likely have access to several powerful Ghost-type attacks.  

Pokémon with Flash Fire that resist Ghost-type attacks (such as Coalossal and Hisuian Arcanine) are a great pick against Hisuian Typhlosion, as they can resist its attacks while also hitting for super-effective damage. 

Alternative picks could include Hisuian Samurott because it is a sturdy Water-type Pokémon that resists Fire-type attacks, which can also attack using Dark-type moves and inflict super-effective damage.
