7 Star Emboar guide Pokemon Scarlet Violet

The 7 Star Emboar Tera Raid Battle event for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is now live, and we have a guide for it ready to go. For this event, Emboar is running Tera Electric, so it’s only weak to Ground-type attacks. The first wave of the event ends on June 16, but it comes back from June 21 to June 23 – this should give you plenty of time to prepare a counter as per one of our recommendations.

There’s yet another special Tera Raid Battle event on the way for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, this time featuring Emboar.

Emboar won’t be easy to take down as it will appear in 7 Star Raids. It’s carrying the Emboar Tera Type and as usual, comes with the Mightiest Mark. Just like we’ve seen before, you can catch it just once per save file.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Outbreak Shiny Hunting

Every once in a while, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will host limited-time outbreak events that focus on specific Pokemon spawning around Paldea, Kitakami, and the Terarium. At the time of writing, there is a specific outbreak hunting event including Water-types like Horsea, Finizen, and more. Our shiny sandwich guide for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet does outline the basics of outbreak shiny hunting, but today we’re here to go a bit more in-depth and describe everything you need to know about one of the absolute easiest shiny hunting methods in any Pokemon game.

The 7 Star Swampert Tera Raid Battle event for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is live now, and we have a guide ready to go. For this event, Swampert is running Tera Poison, meaning it’s weak to Ground- and Psychic-type attacks and not much else. The event runs from May 31 to June 2, and then it comes back between June 7 and June 9. We’ve gathered up a few counters you can prepare for this event here.

Swampert Tera Raid Battle Pokemon Scarlet Violet

Swampert will be featured in the next major Tera Raid Battle event for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, it’s been announced.

Swampert will be popping up in 7 Star Raids during the event period. It’ll come with the Poison Tera Type and the Mightiest Mark. Similar to past events, you can catch it just once per save file.

pokemon black and white remakes

A number of persistent leaks seem to indicate that Pokemon Black and White remakes are on the way, but are they really credible? Today, we’re looking into all of the information we have available on potential remasters and asking you: do you think we’re getting Black and White remakes sooner rather than later?

The real answer: probably not. Pokemon Legends: Z-A was announced earlier this year, and it’s slated for release in 2025. Though the initial trailer didn’t reveal any footage, a good number of fans are excited that The Pokemon Company appears to be taking their time with this game (at least, compared to more recent games in the series, which have drawn criticism for rushed development cycles, among other things). So why would Pokemon Black and White remakes even be in consideration for release in 2024, with that in mind?!

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Sandy Shocks Iron Thorns Tera Raid

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are planning another Tera Raid Battle event with Sandy Shocks and Iron Thorns. The creature you’ll encounter depends on the version you’re playing.

In Pokemon Scarlet, Sandy Shocks will be appearing. Pokemon Violet players can take on Iron Thorns. Both will be showing up in 5 Star Raids with different Tera Types. 

If you’re interested in adding a Quaxly to your team in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet based on Dot’s appearance in the anime, that’s now possible with a new distribution.

The Quaxly being distributed here follows on from Liko’s Sprigatito, and will come with a Classic Ribbon and Partner Ribbon. It will be at Level 5 with the moves Pound and Water Gun, and a Water Tera Type.

You can take advantage of today’s distribution with the steps we’ve outlined below.
