Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Delibird Tera Raid Battle Event Guide

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Delibird Tera cover

Delibirds will become prominent this holiday season in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as they show up in Tera Raids, giving a lot of gifts to those who can defeat them. Trainers who are eager to stock up on a lot of useful items would not want to miss out on this festive occasion.

In this guide, we will be talking about the Delibird Tera Raid Event and share some tips on how to make the most out of it.

Presents from Delibird Tera Raid Event

From Friday, December 23, 2022 (00:00 UTC) to Sunday, December 25, 2022 (23:59 UTC), players will get the chance to join the Delibird Tera Raid Event. Special Tera Caves will appear on the map shown as glowing Tera Raid markers that house the special Delibirds.

These Delibirds can be encountered having different Tera types and can appear with the difficulty of between 1 to 5 stars. Once defeated, they will give out more than the usual amount of rewards given through regular Tera Raids, especially with 5-Star Tera Raids that can give you plenty of Tera Shards; these are shards that can be used to change your Pokémon’s Tera type.

There’s no limit as to how many Delibirds you can defeat or capture within the event period. Regular Tera Raids will still spawn within the map.

Delibird Tera Raid Event Farming

Because of the range of Tera types and difficulties that these special Delibird have, there’s no one build that encompasses everything; this is not the case for players that already have Pokémon built for 6 and 7-Star Tera Raids who can make quick work of the lower raids.

If you’re just starting on joining Tera Raids, then these are just a few of the recommended Pokémon that you can use, along with their recommended max stats:

  • Perrserker (Atk, Spd)
    • Taunt (Host)
    • Helping Hand (Guest)

Just keep in mind that 5-Star Delibirds will be at level 75, so make sure that your Pokémon can keep up.
