A Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tandemaus Tera Raid Battle Event is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Paldea, so here’s the start date and best Pokemon to use.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players will have the opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day in style with a Tandemaus Tera Raid Event. If you missed the ongoing Cinderace Tera Raid Event, you won’t want to skip out on the chance of catching a rare Tandemaus.

As usual, emerging victorious from a Tera Raid Battle Event is no simple task, so we’ve got the best strategies and Pokemon to use featured down below along with the event’s start date.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Tandemaus Valentine’s Tera Raid Battle start date

The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Valentine’s Day Tandemaus Tera Raid Event will start on February 13 and come to a close on February 15. This window only gives players a couple of days to participate in the Valentine’s Day-themed Tera Raid Event.

It’s already been confirmed that Tandemaus will boast a Fairy Tera Type to match the charming holiday.

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.
