Best Pokémon for Hisuian Typhlosion Tera Raid: how to beat the 7-Star Hisuian Typhlosion event

Everything you need to prepare yourself to take down Hisuian Typhlosion

Pokémon has just announced the next seven-star raid, meaning that a brand new ‘mon is coming to Scarlet & Violet. This time Hisuian Typhlosion will be taking center stage with its powerful Ghost- and Fire-type attacks. With a Fire Tera type, it will be doing some strong damage that you need to be prepared for. If you want to pick up Hisuian Typhlosion this month, here are the best counters for the raid.

When does the Hisuian Typhlosion raid start?

The Hisuian Typhlosion raid will take place over two weekends, just like the majority of Scarlet & Violet raids. The two weekends will only be a week apart, so the raids won’t be around for long.

Here are the two weekends the Hisuian Typhlosion will be available:

  • Friday, November 3, 2023, until Sunday, November 5, 2023.
  • Friday, November 10, 2023, until Sunday, November 12, 2023.

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

Here’s the set we predict for Hisuian Typhlosion.

The Mightiest Typhlosion – Level 100

  • Nature – Rash
  • Ability – Frisk
  • Item – None
  • Tera-type – Fire
  • Move set – Infernal Parade, Overheat/Eruption, Sunny Day, Calm Mind, Focus Blast

Hisuian Typhlosion’s ability won’t matter here, as it will have the Hidden Ability Frisk. What we do have to worry about is the amount of damage that a Fire-tera Typhlosion can deal with its powerful special Fire-type attacks. Moves like Overheat and Eruption do serious damage, and will have a two times boost thanks to the Tera-type. Typhlosion will want to lean into these Fire-type attacks, power them up with Sunny Day, and could try to hit players with burns. For this fight, the most important thing is to bring Fire-type resistances, and good special bulk.

Best counters for Hisuian Typhlosion - Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Physical attackers will be much harder to use here due to the chance to burn, so you can only really bring them if they are immune to the status condition. They will also need impressive special bulk, and a Fire-type resistance if they hope to stick around on the field. Typhlosion itself isn’t too bulky, but you will still need to support it if you hope to take it down.

Here are our suggestions.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Ursaring.
Gastrodon (West) on a Scarlet & Violet background.
Pokémon Gyarados.
