Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet aren’t slowing down with the Tera Raid Battle events, and another one has now been announced with Ditto.

These Ditto will have various Tera Types, and will have five stats rated as “Best.” Expect to see them appearing more frequently in five-star battles.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Tera Raid Battle Samurott

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet have another Tera Raid Battle event in store which will put the focus on Samurott. It’s the final evolution of Oshawott, the starter Pokemon that originally appeared in the series’ fifth generation of games.

The hook this time around is that Samurott comes with the Bug Tera Type. It will be available as part of 7-star Tera Raid Battles.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet distribution TM082 and TM087

For a limited time, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet players can claim TM082 and TM087 as part of a new distribution. These are for Thunder Wave and Taunt respectively.

By using Thunder Wave, the Electric-type move can cause paralysis. Taunt, a Dark-type move, makes it so that your foe can only use attack moves for two to four turns.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Tera Raid Blissey

A new Tera Raid Battle event is incoming for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, this time featuring Blissey.

When the event is active, the creature will be appearing more frequently in Tera Raid Battles. Note that various Tera Types are planned for Blissey. If you take one down, you’ll obtain various Tera Shards and bonus Exp. Candies. Plus, if you’re lucky enough, you may encounter a Blissey that grants loads of additional Tera Shards with different Tera Types.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet patch Walking Wake and Iron Leaves

The Pokemon Company has announced another update for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, this time specific to the Walking Wake / Iron Leaves Tera Raid Battle event.

Some players who participated ended up receiving an Egg instead of these creatures if their games were still at version 1.1 when the event began. The upcoming patch will address the issue. Additionally, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet will both be seeing the same Tera Raid Battle run for a second time.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet save file deleted bug

After installing the new version 1.2.0 update, some Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet players have found that their entire save files have been wiped due to a new bug.

According to Kotaku, the issue “seems to have affected a small number of people, but it could theoretically hit anyone.” But what might be most troublesome is that no one is able to pinpoint what’s causing the problem.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Tera Raid Decidueye

Original (3/5): A new 7-star Tera Raid Battle event is on the way to Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet featuring Decidueye, it’s been announced. The creature’s first appearance was in Pokemon Sun and Moon as the final evolution for Rowlet.

The Decidueye here features the Flying Tera Type and the Mightiest Mark. Like other Tera Raids, you’ll partner with other Trainers to take it down.

Pokemon Day happened this week, and alongside that a new Pokemon Presents presentation was delivered. It contained a few announcements and a bunch of news about the franchise as a whole.

Probably the biggest reveal – which has been expected – is that Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are getting new DLC. We don’t actually know too much currently, but it’ll be split into two parts. New Pokemon and a ton of returning creatures are coming. The first part has players going on a fieldtrip to Kitakami while the second features an adventure at Blueberry Academy as an exchange student.

The February 2023 Pokemon Presents did have other news as well, such as the return of Pokemon Sleep, Pokemon Concierge show from Netflix, and more. You can read the full recap here.

So what’d you think of the February 2023 Pokemon Presents? What are your initial thoughts on the Pokemon Scarlet / Violet DLC? Let us know in the comments.

Pokemon Scarlet Violet DLC returning Pokemon leak

Thanks to a datamine, the near-complete list of returning Pokemon for the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet DLC has apparently been revealed.

Version 1.2.0 dropped for both games today. Twitter user mattyoukhana_ discovered that instead of stubbing them, Game Freak deleted Pokedex entries for a ton of Pokemon. That’s what gives us the lineup of returning creatures. Some fans may recall that something similar happened with the DLC for Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Here’s the full list:

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti

Three more Pokemon have just been revealed for the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC, with The Pokemon Company showing off Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti. These creatures “are beloved by the people of the village as heroes that protected the land of Kitakami in the past, and stone statues were made in their likeness to express the people’s gratitude.”

The DLC for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet kicks off with The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk. As we previously detailed, The Teal Mask sends you off on a school trip to the land of Kitakami, where a great mountain towers over the land and the people live at its base. The Pokemon Company has teased that you’ll “meet new friends and Pokémon as they unravel the mysteries behind the folktales that have been passed down in this land.​” Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti will all be appearing in The Teal Mask, but we don’t have any other specifics.

Here’s a closer look at Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti:
