Cinderace will appear in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet’s 7-Star Tera Raids between January 13 and 15, 2023. Even if you already caught Gen 8’s Fire-type starter Pokémon during the first wave of raids, these battles provide you with ample rewards, dropping useful materials and items such as ability patches and capsules, candy, and tera shards.

This guide will arm you with all the knowledge you need about Cinderance’s moveset and its best counters in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

7-Star Tera Raid Cinderace stats, moves – Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Here’s Cinderace’s full set as a 7-Star Tera Raid boss in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet:

  • Nature – Adamant
  • Ability – Libero
  • Item – None
  • Tera-type – Fighting
  • Moves – Bulk Up, Pyro Ball, High Jump Kick, Acrobatics, Iron Head

Since Cinderace has access to Bulk Up, you should opt for special attackers to do maximum damage to this opponent. You don’t have to worry about its special ability, Libero, at least. This would allow Cinderace to adapt its typing under normal circumstances, but since this is a Tera Raid, this effect is simply overwritten.

Another to watch out for is Iron Head, a Steel-type attack. Cinderace knowing this move means that Fairy-types should not be fielded during this battle, as they take additional damage from it.
