This guide will cover everything players need to know to complete the 7-star Typhlosion Tera Raid event in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, including strategies for dealing with Typhlosion’s destructive Fire-type techniques.
Although the post-game of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet include many difficult encounters against wild Pokemon, none are as difficult as the unique 7-star Tera Raids.
Each weekend, the most difficult Tera Raids yet feature the ultimate form of a previous-generation starter. Having begun with Charizard shortly after the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, these 7-star Tera Raids are now being hosted by the Fire-type starter of Generation 2.

When can we expect to see Typhlosion in Tera Raids?
On Friday, April 14, Typhlosion Tera Raids will first emerge. They will be active over the weekend, then vanish until the following Thursday. Here are the times and dates for the big event:
April 14 – April 16
April 21 – April 23
After the Tera Raids event ends, the only way to get a Typhlosion is to trade for one or import one from Pokemon GO or Pokemon DS.
Typhlosion’s Tera Type and 7-star moveset
A 7-star Typhlosion evolving into a Ghost Tera Type will be vulnerable to attacks of the Ghost and Dark types. Shadow Ball, however, is one of the most potent Ghost-type techniques, and Typhlosion has access to it.
However, players shouldn’t fret over Typhlosion’s raw damage output as much as they would over their Pokemon being countered. At the outset of the fight, Typhlosion will use Sunny Day to increase its Fire type damage. Pokemon who aren’t even weak to Fire types can be knocked out with a single use of Eruption from this Pokemon’s moveset.
7-star Tera Raid Dachsbun support
In 7-star Typhlosion raids, Dachsbun is recommended because to its ability to counter the boss’s most terrifying assault. If Typhlosion uses Eruption on a Dachsbun that has the Well-Baked Body ability, the defense of the Dachsbun will increase by two stages.
Players should equip Dachsbun with attacks that deal consistent damage to Typhlosion even when its shield is up. While doing damage, Mud-Slap will reduce its accuracy, Snarl will reduce its Special Attack, and Crunch will reduce its Defense.
Although a Dark Tera Type would be more effective, players would be better served by using a Fairy Tera Type and combining it with Play Rough to deal respectable damage and maybe weaken Typhlosion’s attack even further.
How to best utilize Oranguru in Typhlosion Tera Raids
Oranguru is another Support Pokemon with screen-setting abilities, but it can also deal decent damage on its own. To reduce the effects of Typhlosion’s attacks for eight turns, start by holding Light Clay and utilizing Reflect and Light Screen.
The next step is to employ Nasty Plot to level up your Special Attack to maximum. Play Shadow Ball over and over after this. When the screens’ effectiveness has decreased, remember to reset them.
Keep in mind that Typlosion still has powerful attacks, and that you may need to heal cheer at some point. But if you want a simple, straightforward build, this Oranguru is for you.
Annihilape is the best Typhlosion solo build.
Annihilape can still defeat the 7-star Tera Raid boss, even though Typhlosion learns Shadow Ball. This is because Annihilape has a high amount of HP and uses the move Rage Fist as its signature attack.
Use Screech twice to reduce Typhlosion’s Defense by 4. And keep using Rage Fist over and over. When Annihilape takes damage, Rage Fist’s strength increases by 50. If you pass out, this will not reset. Terastalize into a Ghost Tera Type and keep using Rage Fist till you die.
Players should equip their Annihilape with a Shell Bell so that it heals itself after scoring a hit.
For the long Game, nothing beats a Goodra.
Despite being vulnerable to Play Rough, Goodra is a tanky Pokémon that can stay in the fight long enough to terastalize into a more effective Dark Tera Type. But what is the path to take?
Reduce Typhlosion’s Attack by one stage with Chilling Water on turn one. If the boss attacks you physically, use Chilling Water again next time to further reduce its Attack. After using Sunny Day on turn 3, your next action should be to use Rain Dance to clear the weather and weaken Typhlosion’s Eruption.
Reducing its attack with Chilling Water will allow you to fully charge your Tera Orb. After that, unleash Tera Blast by terastalizing. Make sure your Special Attack stat is higher than your attack so that you may deal Special Attack damage with Tera Blast after using Acid Spray to decrease Typhlosion’s Special Defense.
