Ditto announced for next Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid

Ditto Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet & VioletThe Pokemon Company

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have added Ditto to the mix of available Tera Raids. The Transform Pokemon has proven essential for breeding.

Introduced in Generation I, Ditto is a Normal-type Pokemon that cannot evolve but can produce eggs with any other pocket monster. A Ditto with high IV spreads makes the breeding process for ideal party members easier.

Recently, Scarlet & Violet has introduced several past starter Pokemon to the Paldean region with Tera Raids like Samurott, Decidueye, and Greninja. However, the next event will break that trend by introducing a classic Pokemon, Ditto.

Prominent Pokemon website Serebii revealed Ditto as the next Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid. Unlike the ongoing 7-Star Samurott event, Ditto is available in 5-Star Tera Raids. Instead of a set Tera Type, Ditto has multiple Tera Types with at least five max IVs.

The Ditto Tera Raid runs from 00:00 UTC on April 7 through 23:59 UTC on April 9, 2023.

In the post’s replies, some players seemed disappointed in Scarlet & Violet’s choice of Pokemon.

Twitter user FrancisLaRabia demanded Game Freak would integrate Scarlet & Violet with Pokemon Home instead of a Ditto Raid.

brodybeilfuss couldn’t believe the Tera Raid event and asked Scarlet & Violet would add Fire-type starter evolution Typhlosion as an alternative.

Aside from Ditto and starter Pokemon, Scarlet & Violet unveiled new Paradox forms during the National Pokemon Day presentation. The Pokemon Company confirmed players could encounter Walking Wake – the ancient form of Legendary Suicune — and Iron Leaves – the futuristic version of Legendary Virizion.

Tera Raids are an excellent opportunity to catch Pokemon previously unavailable in Scarlet & Violet. However, battles can prove challenging, and trainers often bring Pokemon like Iron Hands and Azumarill to complete the event.
