Who's that Pokemon?!
Tandemaus & Unconfirmed Pokémon Featured In Upcoming Tera Raids

Trainers are battling against Cinderace in the 7-star Tera Raid encounter in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. This hard-fought encounter against Cinderace will be available for a limited time, but we may know which Tera Raid battles are on the horizon.

While developer Game Freak already revealed details on the upcoming Ranked Battle Series 2 starting in February 2023, they've disclosed the next batch of Tera Raid encounters which will feature a Fairy and Poison-type Pokémon.

First reported by notable Pokémon source, Serebii, the subsequent seasonal Tera Raid encounter will feature the Fairy-type Tandemaus. This seasonal-themed Tera Raid is part of the game's Valentine's Day activities, with the battle occurring from 13th to 15th February 2023, with times to be confirmed soon.

Based on past Tera Raid events, it's possible that the event could begin around 8:59 am (UTC), with various Pokémon possibly appearing during the battle. Aside from the announcement, no further details have been revealed via the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's Japanese website.

The second Tera Raid encounter announced by Game Freak is the 7-star Tera Raid which will begin on 27th January 2023. Like the Tandemaus Tera Raid encounter, the developer announced no details, including the raid start and end times.

Nevertheless, it could begin at 12 am UTC on the date mentioned earlier, similar to the Cinderace Tera Raid, and end at 11:59 pm UTC. Lastly, it's revealed that a Poison-type Pokémon will be featured in the Tera Raid, but it will be confirmed later.

We don't know if the Poison-type Pokémon will have a Mark and which type of Mark it will possess, but to participate in this 7-star Tera Raid battle, the Poké Portal News needs to be updated, as you can use it to track down and join Tera Raid Battle events. Also, Trainers must have specific endgame content completed before they can start locating black Tera Raid crystals in-game.
