How to unlock 7 star Tera Raids Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

To unlock 7 star Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you need to unlock 6 star Tera Raids.

After you’ve unlocked 6 star Tera Raids, you’ll automatically unlock 7 star Tera Raids.

You can look for 7 star Tera Raids by looking for an icon that has a black swirl around it.

Here are the requirements to unlock 7 star Tera Raids:

  1. Complete the game (defeat the Elite 4).
  2. Rematch all 8 gyms to unlock the Ace Academy Tournament.
  3. Win the Ace Academy Tournament in Mesagoza.
  4. Defeat ten 5 star Tera Raids to unlock 6 and 7 star Tera Raids.

After you’ve defeated around ten 5 star Tera Raids, you’ll receive a call from Jacq.

Jacq will tell you about black crystals and not to take them on because they are highly dangerous.

When you get the call, it means that you’ve unlocked both 6 and 7 star Tera Raids.

7 star Tera Raids (e.g. Charizard Event) are limited-time only and they are marked as a black crystal with a black swirl.

If you’re not seeing the event, make sure that you’re connected to the internet, you have the latest update, and saw the news regarding the event (on the mystery gift section).
