The star of Pokémon’s next big raid event is Blissey. These 5-star raids are a stop gap for players who are taking part in the Decidueye 7-star raids which are available for two weekends in March.

Unlike the Decidueye raid, the Blissey raid is only available for one weekend from March 24, 2023 until March 26, 2023. However, if you take some down you’ll be rewarded with plenty of XP candy and tera shards for your trouble.

Here's everything you need to know about the Blissey raid in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

5-star Tera Raid Blissey stats, moves – Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Blissey has a lot of HP and special defense but is quite weak physically. It comes with a number of healing moves which can make it quite tricky to take down. It’s not going to deal out too much damage, but you will want something with good special defense just to make sure you can take any attacks.

Blissey has a few annoying status moves, so something with Taunt that can negate these could be the way to go. Belly Drum is also good to quickly boost your physical attack and take advantage of Blissey's feeble defense. The most difficult part of these raids is that Blissey doesn’t have a set tera-type so you won’t know what it’s weak to until you check the raid den.

Here’s the set Blissey has:

Blissey – Level 75

  • Nature – Random
  • Ability – Natural Cure/Serene Grace/Healer
  • Item – None
  • Tera-type – Random
  • Move set – Heal Pulse, Last Resort, Soft-Boiled, Seismic Toss

Best counters for Blissey – Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Don’t expect Blissey to do a lot of damage, but it will definitely take a lot of damage to take it out. You will want a strong physical attacker in order to take one down, especially one that can boost its attack stat. You’ll want a bit of bulk, but you’re more likely to run out of time from not dealing enough damage.
