Can You Get Shiny Delibird From Tera Raid Battles In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet?

Here, we go over the fact if you can or cannot get a shiny Delibird during the event raids.
Can You Get Shiny Delibird From Tera Raid Battles In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet?

One of the best pastimes in the Pokemon series is shiny hunting Pokemon. Shiny Pokemon are extremely rare, so you have a few bragging rights when you catch a shiny Pokemon. On top of that, having the opportunity to have a Pokemon in a different color is tempting. This is especially true when you have an event Pokemon.

Tera raid battles are where many players get their event Pokemon. And pretty soon, Delibird event Tera raids will come to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Now the question is, can you get a shiny Delibird from these events? We are here to answer that question so you can prepare to shiny hunt or not.

Reminder - The Delibird Tera raids battles event begins today, on December 23.

Can Delibird Be Shiny During The Event Raids In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet?

Soon, there will be special Delibird Tera Raid battles. During these raids, players will get an abundance of rewards available for players to pick up. For example, players will be able to pick up an abundance of Tera Shards which are used to change a Pokemon's Tera type. These are very handy for competitive gameplay.

In actuality, it seems like these raids are pretty normal for a couple of reasons. Number one, the Delibird can be any Tera type. Number 2, the Delibird can be anywhere between a 1-star raid to a 5-star raid. This means that the only real special thing about Delibird raids is the fact that they are abundant and they drop more rewards.

This leads us to believe that yes, you can get a shiny Delibird during the event raids. Although it is not confirmed just yet, these conditions lead us to believe that you can catch as many Delibird as possible which means that you can shiny hunt this Pokemon in their event raids.

When Does The Delibird Tera Raid Event Start In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet?

The Delibird event Tera raids begin on December 23rd and end on December 25th. The event is made for the holiday season and they give players something to do during this timeframe. Players are seemingly able to freely catch as many Delibird as they want.

If players are interested in changing their Pokemon Tera types, they should participate in this event. Tera Shards are hard to come by and being able to farm these items will be very helpful for players in the competitive Pokemon battling scene.
