Pokemon Violet Hydreigon & Dragapult January Tera Raid Guide

Even in the interim of Cinderace’s dual weekend appearance, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Tera Raid battles are heating up as Hydreigon and Dragapult are due to arrive this coming weekend. Players will be able to get their hands on two of the most powerful dragon types from the 5th and 8th generations, respectively, but which of the two they can catch will depend on what version of the game they have. 

Over those two days, the pseudo-legendaries will appear in 4 and 5-star raids across the Paldea region. It’s important to remember that the 5-star raids will only be available to players who’ve beaten the 3 branches of the main story in Scarlet and Violet first.

Hydreigon and Dragapult Tera Raid Event Start Time, Tera Types

The Hydreigon and Dragapult Tera Raid event start and end dates and times are as follows:

  • Starting time – January 6, at 4:00 PM PT
  • Ending time – January 8, at 3:59 PM PT

All Tera types will be available for both Pokemon, which leaves players with multiple chances to snag some exciting combinations, as the two late-game dragons will already be highly sought after for their competitive play potential. 

You can also use this event to find hidden abilities, meaning Dragapult may have the ability Cursed Body. Do multiple raids to find the Tera type and ability you want for your ultimate dragon!

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Hydreigon & Dragapult Raid Version Exclusivity

The most important information to note for this upcoming Tera Raid Event is that each of the two Pokemon will be exclusive to just one version of the game. Hydreigon will be exclusive to Scarlet, while Dragapult will appear in Violet only. Use your Nintendo Switch friends list and online resources to find allies to get the dragon of the opposite version!
