“I’m actually calling to tell you that highly difficult Tera Raids are cropping up all over the place”.

“We’re getting report after report from academy students about their Pokemon getting injured”.

After you’ve beaten five to ten 5 star Tera Raids, Jacq will call you again and tell you about black crystals (6 star raids).

“Tera Raid crystals that get hit by especially strong blasts of this energy are apparently transforming into black crystals”.

“The Tera Pokemon found in these black crystals are incredibly powerful…”.

“Even if you find the location of one of these black crystals on your map app, please do not—I repeat—do not take on the Tera Raid there!”.

You can find 6 star Tera Raids by going to the black crystals that are shown on the map.
