Best Pokémon for Venusaur Tera Raid: How to beat the Venusaur seven-star Tera Raid event

Everything you need to know about the Venusaur seven-star Tera Raids in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

The February 2024 Pokémon Presents on Pokémon Day announced three new seven-star Tera Raids coming to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and running over the next three weeks. Featuring all of the Kantonian starters, Venusaur with the Ground Tera type will be the first target of these difficult raids.

7-Star Tera Raid Venusaur stats, moves, and ability – Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Like all other Tera Raid battles, Venusaur comes with its hidden ability. Chlorophyll doubles Venusaur’s speed in sun, which is why it also uses the move Sunny Day as soon as the battle starts. It follows this up with Growth, which sharply boosts both attacking stats in sun and then uses Petal Blizzard before the fight truly begins.

The stat boost glitch alongside Amnesia means that Venusaur is almost constantly at +6 Special Defense, so you will require a physical attacker to take it down. Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb, and Earth Power provide good but not perfect coverage so there are a number of weaknesses that you can exploit.

Here is Venusaur’s full set:

The Mighty Venusaur – Level 100

  • Nature – Modest
  • Ability – Chlorophyll
  • Item – None
  • Tera type – Ground
  • Move set – Sunny Day, Growth, Petal Blizzard, Amnesia, Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain, Earth Power
