Blissey is taking over 5-star Tera Raids this weekend in conjunction with Decidueye, and here is everything players need to know about the Happiness Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet.

Five and 6-star Tera Raids are the most challenging battles for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trainers outside of special events. They also offer a variety of rewards that can be used to level up, hyper train, and Shiny hunt Pokemon.

Players target different Pokemon to earn specific rewards, and one of the most popular Tera Raids is Blissey. This is mainly due to Blissey having a much higher chance to drop Herba Mystica than other raid bosses, but also because it is the easiest to take down.
