June 21 to July 2, 2023

Chest Form Gimmighoul event banner
The item rewards screen of one of the glitched Gimmighoul raids in Pokémon Scarlet, attempting to display "0 Tera Shards" as item rewards due to an null item reward pool.

After June 21, 2023's Nintendo Direct aired, the 25th Tera Raid Battle event featuring Chest Form Gimmighoul was announced. Gimmighoul with various Tera Types appeared in 1-5 Tera Raid Battles from June 21 (15:00 UTC) to July 2 (23:59 UTC), 2023.[12]

Notably, in 5★ Tera Raids exclusively, there was a chance to encounter Shiny Gimmighoul, which isn't possible to encounter during regular gameplay, however, the chance for a 5★ Gimmighoul to appear as Shiny was the standard 1/4103.05 odds.[13]

Initially, from 15:00 UTC to approximately 17:30 UTC, there was a glitch in the event data for Pokémon Scarlet. Players with Scarlet who completed the event raids were shown reward screens showing multiple instances of "0 Tera Shards" as a reward (due to a null item reward pool), and were prevented from joining the raids of Pokémon Violet players, who were unaffected by the bug. New event raid data was uploaded the server shortly after, with Scarlet players who connected online after 17:30 UTC receiving raids with correct reward pools, and being able to join raids hosted by players with Violet.[14]

For additional information on these raids, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Gimmighoul Spotlight.

June 16 to 19, 2023

Main article: Cancelled Great Tusk and Iron Treads Spotlight
Main article: List of glitches (Generation IX) → May 19, 00:00 to 02:00 UTC, 2023 Poké Portal News event glitches

On June 6, 2023, it was announced that the 24th Tera Raid Battle Event would be the previously cancelled Great Tusk and Iron Treads Spotlight and second event period for the 7★ Chesnaught the Unrivaled raids, which were rescheduled to occur simultaneously between June 16 to 18, 2023.[15][16]

These events were identical to the aforementioned glitched raid events, but resolved both issues, as both Great Tusk and Iron Treads no longer attempt to award the glitched TM Materials resulting in a game crash, and Iron Treads with random Tera Types are no longer prevented from being Shiny.

For additional information on these raids, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Great Tusk and Iron Treads Spotlight.

May 19, 00:00 to 02:00 UTC, 2023

Great Tusk and Iron Treads event banner

An announcement for a 7★ Delphox event intended to run from May 25 to 28, 2023 that briefly appeared in the Pokémon HOME calendar on May 21, before being removed from the event calendar.

The 23rd Tera Raid Battle event was the Great Tusk and Iron Treads Spotlight (Japanese: ピックアップ!イダイナキバ&テツノワダチ Pickup! Idainakiba & Tetsunowadachi). Great Tusk and Iron Treads with random Tera Types were intended to appear more frequently in 5★ Tera Raid Battles from May 19 to May 21, 2023, with Great Tusk being found in Pokémon Scarlet, and Iron Treads being found in Pokémon Violet respectively,[17] however the event was cancelled, only running for a brief period on May 19, 2023, between 00:00 and 02:00 UTC.

In addition to 2 randomized raids, 2 daily raids were guaranteed to have fixed Tera Type. Players with Scarlet had access to a 5★ Great Tusk den with a Steel Tera Type, and players with Violet had access to a 5★ Iron Treads den with a Ground Tera Type.

This event included two notable glitches during its initial introduction at May 19, 2023:

  • The item rewards attempted to grant and display TM Materials for Great Tusk and Iron Treads, despite both species not having associated TM Material items. This caused the item rewards screen for some players to display "None" as one of the item rewards, followed by the game crashing.[18][19]
  • All Iron Treads raids with random Tera types were erroneously coded never to appear as Shiny,[20] despite both versions of Great Tusk, and the Iron Treads with the forced Ground Tera type being able to appear as Shiny at the standard 1:4103.05 odds.

At approximately 02:00 UTC on May 19, 2023,[21] all event raids were removed from the server (including the 7★ Chesnaught the Unrivaled event), replaced with completely blank event data for any players that connected during this time. The official Japanese twitter account issued an apology,[22] but the event was eventually announced as being cancelled entirely.[23] This is the first instance of a Poké Portal News event being removed from the server entirely to address a glitch.

Additionally, an announcement for a 7★ Delphox event running from May 26, 2023 00:00 UTC to May 28, 2023 23:59 UTC briefly appeared in the Pokémon HOME calendar on May 21, but was removed almost immediately, likely due to the cancellation of the prior event causing scheduling conflicts.

The Event was later rescheduled to return on June 16 to June 18.

This event occurred at the same time as the second Chesnaught the Unrivaled 7★ raid event period, which was intended to run between May 19 to 21, 2023. Both events were accessible during 00:00 to 02:00 UTC on May 19, 2023, but were cancelled due to the aforementioned glitches, causing no raid event to occur between May 19, 02:00 UTC and May 21 23:59 UTC.

For additional information on these raids, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Great Tusk and Iron Treads Spotlight.

May 12 to 14 & May 19, 00:00 to 02:00 UTC, 2023

Chesnaught event banner

The 22nd Tera Raid Battle event was Chesnaught with the Mightiest Mark, granting the title Chesnaught the Unrivaled (Japanese: 最強のブリガロン The Strongest Brigarron), which appeared at 7★ black Tera Raid crystals during two time periods: from May 12 to 14, 2023, and was intended to run again from May 19 to 21, 2023; however, the second run was cancelled, only running for a brief period on May 19, 2023, between 00:00 and 02:00 UTC. Chesnaught cannot normally be encountered in Paldea, and the Chesnaught appearing during this event had Rock as its Tera Type. This Chesnaught can only be caught once per save file, although the Tera Raid Battle can be attended repeatedly for additional item rewards. If players captured Chesnaught during the May 12 to 14, 2023 period, they were ineligible to capture a second during the May 19, 00:00 to 02:00 UTC, 2023 period.[24]

The first event period for Chesnaught occurred at the same time as the repeat Walking Wake and Iron Leaves Spotlight 5★ raid event, which ran between May 1 and 14, 2023. Both events were accessible during the May 12 to 14, 2023 period.

The second event period for Chesnaught occurred at the same time as the Great Tusk and Iron Treads Spotlight 5★ raid event, which was intended to run between May 19 to 21, 2023. Both events were accessible during 00:00 to 02:00 UTC on May 19, 2023, but were cancelled to prevent a glitch with the item rewards from the Great Tusk and Iron Treads raids, causing no raid event to occur between May 19, 02:00 UTC and May 21 23:59 UTC.

For additional information on this raid, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Chesnaught the Unrivaled.

May 1 to 14, 2023

Walking Wake and Iron Leaves event banner
Main article: 2023 Pokémon Presents Walking Wake and Iron Leaves Spotlight

The 21st Tera Raid Battle event was a repeat of the February 27 to March 12, 2023 event (as a direct response[25] to the glitch that occurred during the previous event, allowing players running Scarlet or Violet v1.1.0 to encounter and catch a Bad Egg instead of the correct species), featuring Walking Wake for Pokémon Scarlet players and Iron Leaves for Pokémon Violet players in 5★ Tera Raid Crystals from May 1 to 14, 2023.

Players could only catch one Walking Wake and one Iron Leaves per save file (obtaining Walking Wake does not make the player ineligible to catch an Iron Leaves and vice versa), and players who previously obtained Walking Wake or Iron Leaves during the prior February 27 to March 12 event were ineligible to catch another, although the Tera Raid Battles could be attended repeatedly for additional item rewards.[26]

In an attempt at resolving the aforementioned glitch, players were forced to update to Scarlet or Violet v1.3.0 before being able to access online features (preventing players with an outdated game version from accessing the event), and event data is now stored in the savefile in version specific blocks. Due to v1.3.0 detecting if a Bad Egg was present and resetting the capture flag(s) for any players with Bad Eggs, those who previously obtained Bad Egg were permitted to catch another during this repeat event, however the Bad Egg itself was not removed from the affected player's storage.[27]

This repeat event overlapped with the second event period for Inteleon the Unrivaled from May 5 to 7, 2023, and also overlapped with the first event period for Chesnaught the Unrivaled from May 12 to 14, 2023. During the overlapping event periods, both Walking Wake/Iron Leaves 5★ raids and respective 7★ raids were accessible.

For additional information on these raids, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Walking Wake and Iron Leaves Spotlight.

April 28 to 30 & May 5 to 7, 2023

Inteleon event banner

The 20th Tera Raid Battle event was Inteleon with the Mightiest Mark, granting the title Inteleon the Unrivaled (Japanese: 最強のインテレオン The Strongest Intereon), which appeared at 7★ black Tera Raid crystals during two time periods: from April 28 to 30, 2023, then again from May 5 to 7, 2023. Inteleon cannot normally be encountered in Paldea, and the Inteleon appearing during this event had Ice as its Tera Type. This Inteleon can only be caught once per save file, although the Tera Raid Battle can be attended repeatedly for additional item rewards. If players captured Inteleon during the April 28 to 30, 2023 period, they were ineligible to capture a second during the May 5 to 7, 2023 period.[28]

The second event period for Inteleon occurred at the same time as the repeat Walking Wake and Iron Leaves Spotlight 5★ raid event, which ran between May 1 and 14, 2023. Both events were accessible during the May 5 to 7, 2023 period.

For additional information on this raid, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Inteleon the Unrivaled.

April 21 to 23, 2023

Blissey event banner
Main article: March 2023 Blissey Spotlight

The 19th Tera Raid Battle event was a repeat of the March 24 to 26, 2023 Blissey Spotlight (Japanese: ハピナス!ハッピーウィークエンド! Happinas! Happy weekend!). In this repeat event, Blissey with various Tera Types appeared more frequently in 5★ Tera Raid Battles from April 21 to 23, 2023.[29]

This was the first instance of a repeat event being announced separately from the original event, and it also occurred at the same time as the second Typhlosion the Unrivaled 7★ raid event period, which also ran between April 21 and 23. Both events were accessible during this period.

For additional information on these raids, including items and their drop rates, see List of Event Tera Raid Battles/2023 → Blissey Spotlight.

April 14 to 16 & April 21 to 23, 2023

Typhlosion event banner

The 18th Tera Raid Battle event was Johtonian Typhlosion with the Mightiest Mark, granting the title Typhlosion the Unrivaled (Japanese: 最強のバクフーン The Strongest Bakphoon), which appeared at 7★ black Tera Raid crystals during two time periods: from April 14 to 16, 2023, then again from April 21 to 23, 2023. Typhlosion cannot normally be encountered in Paldea, and the Typhlosion appearing during this event had Ghost as its Tera Type. This Typhlosion can only be caught once per save file, although the Tera Raid Battle can be attended repeatedly for additional item rewards. If players captured Typhlosion during the April 14 to 16, 2023 period, they will be ineligible to capture a second during April 21 to 23, 2023 period.[30]

The second event period for Typhlosion occurred at the same time as the repeat Blissey Spotlight 5★ raid event, which also ran between April 21 and 23. Both events were accessible during this period.

April 7 to 9, 2023

Notably, as this event covers exclusively 5★ difficulty raids, 97% of Ditto that appear during this event have 5 of their 6 possible IVs set to 31, giving them a rating of "Best" in the Stats Judge, with 1 random IV randomized to a value ranging from 0 and 31. In addition to the randomized Ditto, there are three customized encounter slots with guaranteed properties, likely to account for the prevalence of breeding Pokémon with specific IV values for use in competitive play:

  • There is a 1% chance for encountered Ditto to be guaranteed to have an Attack IV of 0.
  • There is a 1% chance for encountered Ditto to be guaranteed to have a Speed IV of 0.
  • There is a 1% chance for encountered Ditto to be guaranteed to have have all 6 IVs set to 31.

This event occurred at the same time as the second Samurott the Unrivaled 7★ raid event period, which also ran between April 7 and 9. Both events were accessible during this period.

Item rewards included a chance to obtain certain items, focusing on Tera Shards, Exp. Candy, and Rare Candy.

Players had a 5/7 (~71.43%) chance to encounter a Blissey that rewarded 15 Tera Shards (3 sets of 5 Shards with 3 random types), as well as 5 Shards matching the Blissey's Tera Type, with a chance to obtain extra rewards such as additional Shards, Exp. Candy XL or L, or Rare Candy.

February 27 to March 12, 2023

Walking Wake and Iron Leaves event banner
Bad Egg as a result of catching a Walking Wake or Iron Leaves in v1.1.0 of Scarlet or Violet

Released after the 2023 Pokémon Presents, the 13th Tera Raid Battle event featured the newly announced Paradox Pokémon, Walking Wake for Pokémon Scarlet players and Iron Leaves for Pokémon Violet players in 5★ Tera Raid Crystals from February 27 to March 12, 2023 at 14:59 UTC. Players could only catch one Walking Wake and one Iron Leaves per save file (obtaining Walking Wake does not make the player ineligible to catch an Iron Leaves, and vice versa), although the Tera Raid Battles could be attended repeatedly for additional item rewards.[35]

Connecting online and updating the Poké Portal News event data while on v1.1.0 of Scarlet or Violet resulted in a glitch. Due to the lack of species data existing in v1.1.0, the Walking Wake/Iron Leaves raids would appear as a Bad Egg instead. If caught, these Bad Eggs cannot be hatched, released, or traded, and catching the Bad Egg also erroneously set the flag for having caught Walking Wake or Iron Leaves, causing the player to be unable to attempt to catch another, even if they updated to v1.2.0 and attempted to join a non-glitched instance of the event raids. Updating the game to v1.2.0 did not result in the Bad Egg becoming the correct species, nor did it reset the aforementioned flag(s).[36]

This glitch was partially resolved with v1.3.0, which reset the capture flag(s) if you had obtained a Bad Egg, allowing players who obtained a Bad Egg previously to catch Walking Wake and/or Iron Leaves during the May 1 to 14, 2023 repeat event, however the Bad Egg itself was not removed from the affected player's storage.
