Samurott appears in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have introduced Samurott as the next obtainable starter for the games’ series of 7-Star Tera Raids.

Samurott is the final evolution of the Water-type Pokemon Oshawott. Along with the Grass-type Snivy and the Fire-type Tepig, Oshawott is the third available starter players can choose in Pokemon Black & White.

In Pokemon: Legends Arceus, Samurott reemerged with Hisuian Water/Dark dual-type. The regional form of Decidueye- starter Rowlett’s final evolution also appeared.

In the past, Scarlet & Violet featured past starters like Sun & Moon’s Decidueye and Sword & Shield’s Cinderace in 7-Star Tera Raid events. This time, the game brings in Black & White’s Samurott with a different typing.

Scarlet & Violet revealed another starter evolution Tera Raid


On Twitter, SerebiiNet confirmed the Samurott Tera Raid would soon arrive in Scarlet & Violet. To find the Black Crystals across the Paldean region containing Samurott, players must unlock 7-Star Tera Raids. Users can do this by completing all three story paths and The Way Home quest.

Instead of its normal Water-typing, Samurott will have a Bug Tera Type in the Scarlet & Violet event. The Pokemon will also carry the Mightiest Mark, which means trainers can only catch one Samurott per save file.

The Samurott 7-Star Tera Raid will run from 00:00 UTC on March 31 through 23:59 UTC on April 2, 2023, then repeat from April 7 to April 9 during the same time frame.

In addition to the previous starter Pokemon, Scarlet & Violet introduced Paradox forms of familiar pocket monsters. 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.

While many players hope to catch Tera Raid Pokemon, it isn’t necessarily a piece of cake. Popular party members to bring include Iron Hands and Azumarill.
