Tera Raid Battles are one of the hardest fights players encounter in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. There are various types of Raids, with differing levels of difficulty (from 1 star up to 7 stars). The more stars a Tera Raid has, the more difficult it will be to take down the Terastallized Pokemon, but they have the best rewards in the games, so they are worth beating. This guide will take you through how to unlock 5, 6 & 7-Star Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

How to Unlock 5-Star Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? 

1. What are 5-star raids? 

A 5-star Raid is a raid battle in which you can capture and battle powerful Pokemon that wouldn't typically be found in your region. You can usually find 5-star raids at higher levels or after completing particular tasks. 

2. How to Unlock 5-Star Raids? 

To unlock 5-Star raids, you must finish all the storylines in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. After defeating them and watching the endgame credits, you will get a call from Jacq. He will inform you of the new raids popping up across Paldea, which are the 5-Star Raids. 

3. Tips and Tricks for Getting 5-Star Raids 

Here are some tips and Tricks you can follow to get 5-Star Raids: 

1). Complete all the side quests in each area: These are essential to progressing through the story and unlocking new events. As you complete each region, more events will become available, some of which will be 5-star Raid Battles. 

2). Collect coins: Coins are a valuable resource in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. They can be used to purchase upgrades, items, and more. Collecting coins is a great way to unlock more options, including 5-star Raid Battles. 

3). Collect items: Items are also necessary to progress through the game and unlock new events. Collecting items allows you to open up more options, such as 5-star Raid Battles. 

4). Optimize your Team: Your team is an integral part of the game, and you must optimize your team to succeed in 5-star Raid Battles. Ensure that your team is well-balanced and that all your Pokemon are at the same level. 

How to Unlock 6-Star Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? 

1. What are six-star raids? 

They're raids that are rated with six stars according to their difficulty. You can find most Pokémon and Tera Types in these raids — they aren't Pokémon-specific. They're like every other raid, but harder and with better rewards. If you catch these Pokémon, they'll also be at higher levels than those in lower-star raids. 

2. How to Unlock 6-Star Raids? 

1). Complete the main game, the final boss, and roll the credits. 
2). Re-challenge all 8 gym leaders in the post-game boss rush. 
3). Once you defeat them, return to your school and enter the Academy Ace tournament. 
4). You have to battle and defeat four trainers in a row to beat the tournament. 
5). Then, you have to host and beat a few 5-Star raids, and Jacq will call you again to inform you about new and even more dangerous raids. 
6). To find these 6-Star raids, open your map and look for Raid Icons with a Purple Glow.  
7). Complete this first 6-Star Raid, and you have unlocked the ability to challenge more. 

3. 6-Star Raid Rewards 

1). They drop IV-boosting Bottle Caps, which are usually an expensive resource vital for developing powerful competitive Pokemon. 
2). You also can acquire rare ingredients for the most useful sandwich recipes. 
3). You can get helpful Tera Shards for swapping the Terastallizing type of your Pokemon. 
4). You can get all sorts of other valuable consumable items and experience boosting candies that are always great to stock up on.  

How to Unlock Seven-Star Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? 

1. What are 7-star raids? 

Seven-star raids are a unique event in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. They are a tier above the standard toughest fights in these games and don't occur outside special times. 

2. How to Unlock Seven-Star Raid? 

It's the same format for how you unlock five-star and six-star raids. Complete the three storylines, get Credits, rematch the Gym Leaders, complete the Pokemon Tournament, and fight a few four, five, and Six Star Tera Raids. This entire process is lengthy and time-consuming. But that's the only way to unlock Seven-Star Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Once you complete these criteria, you again get a call from Jacq, and Seven-Star Raid will be unlocked.  

The seven-star raids only appear during events. During special events, the Black Crystals scattered around Paldea Region will become the locations to get Seven-Start Raids. However, because they are event-specific, ensure you don't miss them. To do that, open your map during special events to check the icons for Black Raid Crystals; the event-specific ones will have a white aura around them. Mark one and go to it for a Seven Star Tera Raid Battle. 

3. What do you get for completing 7-star Tera Raids? 

The rewards for seven-star Tera Raids vary to the same degree as any other raid in the game. Still, you can expect a hefty haul of rare items, XP Candy, and Herba Mystica for clearing what is typically referred to as the "Unrivaled Challenge." 

In addition to the usual raid rewards, most seven-star raid events will also give players a special bonus should they catch the Raid Boss. For example, the Unrivaled Charizard event introduced seven-star Tera Raids.
