Black Crystal Tera Raid - Charizard

Jessica Dillon

Not every Pokemon is available in Pokemon Violet and Pokemon Scarlet. In fact, one of the most popular Pokemon of all time, "Charizard" IconCharizard, can’t be obtained through normal means. If you want to add this Pokemon to your team, then you will need to participate in a limited-time event before it goes away for good. Below we go over everything you need to know about the Seven Star Black Crystal Tera Raid that will guarantee you your very own "Charizard" IconCharizard to take home.

What is a Tera Raid

These are special Tera events that can be triggered through interacting with Black Tera Crystals on the map in the postgame. For a complete overview of Tera Raids, check out our helpful guide here.

How to Get Charizard

To get "Charizard" IconCharizard, you presumably have to beat the game to unlock the Black Tera Raids. After that, you need to interact with the crystals during the time periods above to take on "Charizard" IconCharizard and have a chance to bring it home. Only one "Charizard" IconCharizard can be obtained per game, but the site does mention that there may be more chances in the future to gain more "Charizard" IconCharizards.

The official site also states that you can participate in this raid even after capturing "Charizard" IconCharizard. At this point, you will be given other rewards for your participation.

We will update this page with further information when the "Charizard" IconCharizard raid goes live.
