Welcome back to the Weekly Wave! Let’s see what news, updates, and announcements have risen to the surface this week!
Enjoy Pokémon’s new 7-Star Tera Raid Battle this weekend!
That’s right, starting on Friday, January 12th, Trainers will be able to take part in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's 7-Star Tera Raid Battle. This time, Blaziken will have center stage, along with Blissey, who is slated to make an appearance as well. Blaziken is a Flying Tera Type that is sure to test the skills of any Trainer that crosses its path.
Blaziken is known for its damaging attacks, but if you take advantage of its weak defense, specifically to Rock, Ice, and Electric, you should be able to bring it down. So, if you’re thinking about taking it on, be sure to have a plan in place, and stick with it for the duration of the battle.
Again, this 7-Star Tera Raid Battle with Blaziken will officially begin on January 12th and run through January 14th. That means you have the whole weekend to go toe-to-toe with Blaziken. If you can’t make it this weekend, don’t fret. Pokémon also announced that this event will become available again on January 19th and last until January 21st.
Good luck, Trainers!
