Terastalizing is Pokémon Scarlet & Violet's unique battle mechanic. And, just like Sword & Shield's Gigantamaxing, you'll be able to embark on Tera Raid Battles, where you and three other trainers can band together to take on a Tera Pokémon. If you beat it in the allotted time, you'll have the chance to capture it.

Many of these Tera Raid battles will be put on by Game Freak and The Pokémon Company. These Event Battles offer a unique opportunity to capture a Pokémon that might not ordinarily be catchable in the region, or may come with special abilities or stats. Or, sometimes, you might just be able to find a Pokémon more frequently.

Below is a list of all Tera Raid Battle events — current, upcoming, and expired.
