There was a break in raids following the release of the Indigo Disk DLC, but seven-star raids are now making a comeback. Blaziken is the next target of these particular raids. It will be a new Pokémon for people who don’t own the DLC, and everyone with Scarlet and Violet will have the chance to catch one.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Blaziken seven-star raids.

When does the Blaziken raid start?

Like most raids Blaziken will be available for two weekends, and a new raid will appear every day. This means that there are six chances to catch The Mightiest Blaziken over the two weekends.

Here are the dates when Blaziken is available:

  • From Friday, January 12, 2024, until Sunday, January 14, 2024
  • From Friday, January 19, 2024, until Sunday, January 21, 2024

Blaziken has a Flying-tera type, meaning that it will be weak to Rock-, Ice-, and Electric-type moves. As a natural Fire-/Fighting-type Pokémon, it also has strong attacks of these types too. Blaziken can build up its strength very quickly with moves like Swords Dance and Bulk Up, making it a scary Pokémon to take down.

Best counters for Blaziken – Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Blaziken can reduce physical damage by increasing its defense using Bulk Up, making special Pokémon much more viable in this raid. A resistance to Flying-, Fighting- and Fire-type attacks is a must, while super-effective attacks are a nice bonus — though far from strictly required. Blaziken’s Speed Boost ability means that it will outspeed pretty much any counter, if not right away then after a few moves, so speed isn’t very important for this raid.
