If you don’t have time to catch Typhlosion, there will be another chance from Thursday, April 21 at 5pm PT/8pm ET to Sunday, April 23 at 4:59pm PT/7:59pm ET.
While obtaining a Typhlosion sounds like a wonderful thing, it won’t be a walk in the PokePark as the battle will be a 7-Star raid and will see the Pokemon at level 100 with a Ghost Tera Type. Trainers are encouraged to “work together with your friends to topple this powerful Tera Pokemon!”
It’s important to not you can only catch one Typhlosion per save data, but you can continue to battle other Typhloshions for rewards. The Pokemon Company also notes that Typhlosion may return in “future events or become obtainable through other methods.”
The Typhlosion Tera Raid has been one of the biggest ones in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and many online have been sharing their excitement over the chance to battle and catch this Pokemon alongside tips for others trying to do the same.
Advice for Online Raids vs Typhlosion:
Run a bulky Toxapex with Wide Guard!
It neutralizes both Eruption and Earthquake like Protect for ALL!
Just spam it over and over again and let the others COOK!
You need one of your dudes to be actually offensive!#PokemonScarletViolet pic.twitter.com/rNgti46ikl

this is such a small thing to be excited about, but i’m SO happy Pokemon updated Typhlosion’s battle model to show its fire again 😌
6 yr old me basically solo’d Crystal with Typhlosion because she looked so cool! The model w/o fire in X&Y and Sun & Moon was really disappointing pic.twitter.com/PmxAKNb9yK
