Iron Treads and Great Tusk Tera Raid announced

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have announced a 5-star Tera Raid for Paradox mons Great Tusk and Iron Treads.

For several 7-star Tera Raid events, Scarlet & Violet have introduced starters from past Pokemon games. For example, the Generation 9 titles have included Samurott, Decidueye, and Cinderace as obtainable mons. However, Scarlet & Violet have also added Tera Raids featuring Walking Wake and Iron Leaves.

Now, Paradox Pokemon Iron Treads and Great Tusk will briefly debut in 5-star Tera Raid Battles. Previously, trainers could find these mysterious Pokemon inside Area Zero towards the end of their playthroughs. Here’s everything we know about the limited-time event.

Twitter user SerebiiNet confirmed Great Tusk would arrive in Scarlet and Iron Treads in Violet. The Paradox Pokemon will be available in 5-star Tera Raids and take on multiple Tera Types. Since they will be 5-star and not 7-star, the Pokemon will not have the Mightiest Mark.

The Great Tusk and Iron Treads Tera Raid will run from 00:00 UTC on May 19 through 23:59 UTC on May 21, 2023. The event will take place at the same time as the repeat of the 7-star Chesnaught Tera Raid.

On May 7, Scarlet & Violet revealed Chesnaught would take on a Rock Tera-type in its 7-star Raid. The Pokemon is the final evolution of the Grass-type starter Chespin in the Generation 6 games. While Chesnaught’s first round of Tera Raid has ended, it will repeat during Iron Treads and Great Tusk’s time frame.
