This guide explains what you need to know about the Charizard Tera Raid Event and offers some suggestions for possible counters.

Pokemon Crimson and Crimson Charizard Tera Raid Event Guide - Pokémon Crimson and Crimson: Charizard Tera Raid Event GuideAlong with Pikachu and Eevee, Charizard is one of the most popular Pokémon in the history of the long-running franchise. With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Pokémon Crimson and Crimson are getting a special Charizard event so soon after their release, given that Pikachu and Eevee had their own special events from the start of the games.

The Charizard Tera Raid Event will be released in December 2022 and will offer the opportunity not only to fight Charizard, but also to catch one yourself. Since there is currently no other way to catch Charizard, you should prepare well for it.

When is the Charizard Tera Raid Event?

The Charizard Tera Raid Event is a seven-star raid that will take place over two three-day periods in December 2022. The first raid begins on Thursday, December 1st and lasts until December 4th. The second starts on Thursday December 15th and lasts until December 18th. In order to participate in the raid, five and six star raids must first be unlocked by completing the main story, unlocking the grand academy tournament, and then running five star raids until Jim calls to say six- Star Raids have appeared.

Here are the exact times for the event:

  • Friday, December 2, 2022 at 00:00 (UTC) – Sunday, December 4, 2022 at 23:59 (UTC)
  • Friday, December 16, 2022 at 00:00 (UTC) – Sunday, December 18, 2022 at 23:59 (UTC)

The best counters against Charizard

There are a few things to consider when choosing the best counter for the Charizard Tera Raid event in Pokémon Crimson and Crimson. The type comes first. As a Dragon Tera-type, Charizard is weak against Dragon, Fairy, and Ice-type attacks, while its Dragon-type attacks aren’t very effective against Steel-types. It will likely still have access to Fire and Flying attacks, though, which is also something to keep in mind.

Charizard’s powerful Fire-type attacks make Steel and Ice-types poor choices for counterattacks, while its Dragon-Tera-type also rules out Dragon-types. With that in mind, Fairy-type Pokémon are Charizard’s best counters, especially those with high Special Defense, since Charizard’s base Special Attack is significantly higher than its Attack. His Special Defense is a little higher than his Defense, but maybe not enough to make a big difference.

Fairy-types are completely immune to Dragon-type attacks and take normal damage from Fire-type and Flying-type moves. Also, Charizard doesn’t have access to Steel or Poison moves unless the games make changes to its learning set or the moves it can learn via TM, so there’s no need to worry during the special raid Events of being hit by super-effective attacks.

With all that in mind Florges a good choice as it has a strong 154 Special Defense and a very respectable 112 Special Attack. It has access to powerful Fairy-type attacks like Spell Flare and Moon Rush to deal damage, can heal itself with Wish or Thief’s Kiss, and can boost damage done by its allies by a massive 50% by using Right Hand. The effects of the latter are also cumulative, so with a little coordination, three players can increase the attack power of one of their teammates by 237.5%.

Finding a Florges isn’t easy, though, as while there are some in Northern Zone 3, they’re incredibly rare. For this reason, you should instead try to catch a Floette and evolve it with a glowstone. Floette can be found in all three areas of the Northern Zone, as well as in the Brotzel Desert and areas five and six of the Southern Zone. Glowstone can be obtained from the Puerto Marinedo Auction House as a Pokédex completion reward for catching 150 Pokémon, by the lake northeast of Asarilla in South Zone 6, or from the Crispy Forest Trail.

Another great option is this flutter hair, as it has 135 Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed. In bright sunlight or with an Energy Pod, you can increase either your Special Attack or Special Defense by an additional 30%, or your Speed ​​by 50% by finding a Pokemon with a Trait that boosts that stat. Special Attack (Moderate) or Special Defense (Silent) would be better since it’s already much faster than Charizard. Fuzzy Hair can be caught in Zone Zero, but only in Pokémon Crimson, meaning Crimson players must trade with a friend.

How to get Charmander, Glutexo, and Charizard in Pokémon Crimson and Crimson

Currently, neither Charizard nor either of its two pre-evolutions are part of the Paldea Pokédex, meaning there’s no way to legally get them in-game. However, once the Charizard Tera Raid Event is underway, any Charizard caught during the Raid Event can be traded with friends, and it can also be bred to obtain Charmander and Chameleon.

If you’re lucky enough to catch a female Charizard, you can pair it with a Monster Egg or Dragon Egg Pokémon to get a Charmander Egg. If you have a male Charizard, you must hatch it with a Ditto or a female Charizard, since the Egg Pokémon is usually determined by the female Pokémon. After hatching the egg, you can evolve Charmander into Glutexo when you reach level 16, and Glutexo into Charizard when you reach level 36.
