How to beat Tandemaus Tera Raid Event in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Beating Tandemaus in this Tera Raid Battle should not prove too difficult a challenge if you’re equipped with a powerful Steel or Poison type Pokemon.

Fairy-types are weak to Steel and Poison moves, therefore a high-level Pokemon that boasts moves like Gunk Shot, Poison Jab, Sludge Bomb, Flash Cannon, or Iron Head will do the trick.

Tinkaton is a great option considering it will resist Fairy and Normal-type attacks that the Tandemaus can dish out. It can also learn Swords Dance via TM which will boost its attacking power.

Gholdengo is another great option due to the fact that it will resist Fairy-type moves and Normal-type moves are completely ineffective against it. After a few Metal Sound, Make it Rain will hit extremely hard.

Don’t forget to Terastallize your Pokemon during Tera Raid Battles to deal more damage to Tera Raid Shields.
