Can You Catch Shiny Mismagius In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid Battles?

We go over the possibilities of players being able to catch a shiny Mismagius during its Tera Raid event in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Can You Catch Shiny Mismagius In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid Battles?

In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, getting a shiny Pokemon from events is a special occasion. There are often times when events for certain Pokemon do not repeat themselves, so there is only a small window of opportunity to get yourself an event Shiny Pokemon. This is especially true if you have to hunt the shiny Pokemon for yourself rather than it being handed to you via a Mystery Gift.

That is why players are wondering are the latest event Tera raid Pokemon can be shiny or not. In the upcoming event Tera raids, players can catch themselves a Mismagius through this raid event. But can Mismagius ever be a shiny Pokemon through these raids? We are here to answer that question for you.

Is It Possible To Catch Shiny Mismagius In Tera Raid Events?

The short answer is yes, you can catch Shiny Mismagius in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera raid events. There are a couple of reasons why that you can. The first main reason is that this is not a Black Crystal Tera raid event. The Black Crystal raids feature Pokemon like Charizard or Cinderace, Pokemon you cannot get naturally in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

In Black Crystal Tera Raids, you can only catch one of that event Pokemon which means that they are shiny-locked. But Mismagius is part of a version exclusive Tera raid event, which means you are free to catch as many Mismagius as you want. Because of these reasons, Mismagius, during its Tera raid event, is not shiny-locked, and you can shiny hunt it.

Can Pokemon Scarlet Owners Do The Mismagius Tera Raid Event?

Technically, yes, Pokemon Scarlet owners can do the Mismagius Tera raid event. There is a bit of a catch, though, to do it. As you might have noticed, Mismagius is exclusive to Pokemon Violet, and that includes the Tera raid event. So how does a Pokemon Scarlet owner do the Tera raid event?

Thankfully, Pokemon Violet owners will need help doing the online raid events. So, all Pokemon Scarlet has to do is search for raids online during the event, and a Pokemon Violet player will definitely post up a Mismagius Tera raid. The online raids are not version-exclusive, so Pokemon Scarlet players can join in and do the Mismagius raid. If they are lucky, a Pokemon Violet player might even post up a shiny Mismagius raid.
