Pokémon Scarlet and Violet 6-Star Raids Guide

Highest tier raids in the game!

6 Star Raids are super difficult to beat in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as it has level 90 Pokémon. You will encounter 6 Star Raids in Tera Raid Battles. These raids will set you up with the strongest Pokémon you can face in the game. It is best to learn about the all-powerful Pokémon that you are going to face so, we recommend you go through our guides on water, dark, steel, poison, and ghost-type pokemon.

It’s going to be hard to unlock a 6-Star Raid. So we are going to break through all the steps one by one for you to learn more about these raids.

How to unlock 6 Star Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

There are three major steps you are going to follow to unlock the 6-star raids. Let us go through all the steps one by one to see what are the best ways to tackle each one.

1. Gym Rematches

You may have faced one or two Gym leaders in order to gain Gym Badges. But, now you will need to complete the eight Gym rematches. By doing so, you will become the Champion of the Pokémon League. The Champion title is needed because only after gaining this, you will be contacted to return to the Academy. Thus, you can now go to the next step.

2. Academy Ace Tournament

After returning to the Academy, you will be invited to take part in the Academy Ace Tournament. If you want to complete this step, you have to win four matches against 4 random high-level trainers. They are pretty tough to beat, so you will have to prepare well for the tournament. After winning the Academy Ace Tournament you can move to the final step of the process.

3. Do Five to Ten 5-Star Raids

After the Tournament, you will get a call from Jacq. Jacq will tell you about the new 5 Star Raids appearing in the world. You will need to clear a lot of 5 Star before unlocking a 6 Star. Although the exact number is not clear, you may have to clear five to ten 5-Star Raids before you can move on to the 6-star ones.

However, you must host these raids to count towards the progress. So, keep searching 5 Star raids and complete them with team members. Continue completing them because Jacq will once again call you and inform you about a highly dangerous Raid that has appeared. That means, 6 Star Raids have appeared in Black Crystals on the map.

How to get into 6 Star Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

If you look at the map after receiving Jacq’s call, the 6-Star raids will appear as a glowing purple or black raid lair symbol. Follow the map and you will discover a Black Crystal Lair. Upon having contact with it, the lair will bring up the Tera Raid Battle screen.

Finally, you can now challenge a 6-Star Raid with your teammates. You can also challenge the Raid as a solo but as we know a 6-Star Raid is the hardest challenge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violate. So having a team will certainly benefit everyone while fighting.

How to prepare for the Battles

Before entering a battle with the most powerful Pokémon, you will need to prepare a lot of things. First, improve your HP and your attacking stat. Then, choose a strong Pokémon for Tera Raids. Try to level that Pokémonup to level 100. Now change their nature to Adamant or Modest, Hyper train your Pokémon and EV train your Pokémon that result in 252 HP and 252 Atk.

Pokémon with Hidden Abilities

There is a high possibility you can catch Pokémon with Hidden Abilities in these dangerous raids. So, you better keep your focus while raiding.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet 6 Star Raids rewards

Dangerous raids give high-quality rewards and 6 Star Raids are no different. The rewards can be Herba Mystica, Bottle Caps, Ability Capsules, and more high-level powerful items. Another thing you will get is 10,000 LP after your very first win. Jacq will be the one who will give you this reward LP during the conversation on the call. Plus point is that the Pokémon you caught at the raids, may be at level 75 or up.
