Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Tera Raid Battles have become a big part of the game, so here’s everything we know about the Cinderace Tera Raid event coming in 2023.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet has already delivered the Charizard Tera Raid Event and an upcoming Tandemaus Tera Raid is also on the cards. These fabulous opportunities have presented players with a dazzling array of awards for successful completion.

The firey theme is set to continue as we head into the new year with 2023 offering Scarlet & Violet players a new Cinderace Tera Raid battle to take part in.

We have all the details on the Cinderace Tera Raid event, including when it’s set to drop in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, and what it will involve.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Cinderace Tera Raid Battle start date

Thanks to Serebii, we know that Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s Cinerace Tera Raid event is gearing up for round two on January 13, 2023. The Cinderace Tera Raid will come to a close a couple of days later on January 15, 2023.

Round one of the event occurred between December 30 and January 1, and players who missed out have a fantastic second opportunity to complete it.

Like the previous event, we’d expect the Cinderace it to begin at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM GMT.

How to beat Cinderace Tera Raid event in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

The Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Cinderace fight will be no joke as it’s set to be another Seven Star fight like Charizard was, and Cinderace will also come with the Mightiest Mark – so it’s going to be a mean fight, and you’ll need a really tough Pokemon to take it down.

This Cinderace has a Fighting Tera Type which means a high-level Azumarill will be a solid choice. Azumarill will resist Pyro Ball and High Jump Kick, all while setting up with Belly Drum and dealing major damage with Play Rough.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Cinderace Tera Raid Battle rewards

Just as with previous Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Raids, if you are able to claim victory in this Raid, we expect the Cinderace fight to reward players, not only with the chance to obtain their own super-powerful Cinderace, but also a litany of rewards ranging from EXP Candies to Evolution Stones to Feathers, and a whole lot more.
