When raids were introduced, I did not hesitate to try them out. 😮💨 Though I enjoyed defeating raid bosses, I did not like how the Tera raid dens disappeared after a successful raid.
I started researching whether there was a way Tera raid dens could respawn for me to continue raiding. This is when I realized that many fans of this game also had the same question.
So, after comprehensive research, I created this post to help you understand whether Tera raid dens can respawn in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and much more!
How do players respawn tera raids in Pokémon Scarlet?
Tera raid den locations, as well as mass outbreaks in this game, automatically respawn at midnight. Therefore, when the clock gets to 12, you will get a notification alerting you of the appearance of new Mass Outbreaks.
Apart from the automatic option, you can also respawn tera raids in this game by manipulating the game’s system.
If you don’t want to wait for the tera raids to respawn at midnight, you can respawn them manually by clicking some buttons on your Nintendo Switch.
How often do Terra raids respawn?
Terra Raids only respawn once at midnight (each real-world night), depending on your time zone. For instance, if you want to respawn wild Tera-type Pokémon, you can choose to return to the area the following day since Tera Types automatically respawn with each new day.
However, we mentioned another option: you can change the date manually to respawn tera raids. This option gives you the opportunity to clear the map of Tera Raids before the end of the day.
How do you reset spawns in Pokémon Scarlet?
👇To manually reset spawns in this game, do the following.
Open Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
Check Tera Raids.
Go to Switch JoyCon/Controller
Click on the Home button.
Go to Switch Settings
Look for System, then click on Date and Time
Turn off the function labeled Synchronize Clock Via Internet.
Doing this disables the Switch’s ability to keep accurate time when you are connected to the internet.
Move the date forward by one day.
For instance, you can move it to 12.01 am the next day.
Click on the Home Button
This takes you back to Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Check whether the Tera Raids have respawned on the map
🔁If you cannot see your desired Tera Raids, repeat the process.
Do tera battle raids respawn occasionally after beating some in Pokémon Scarlet?
No. After you win some tera battle raids and scratch them off the map, they are added as soon as the day changes.
This is one of the aspects that make Pokémon Scarlet differ from Sword and Shield. In Sword and Shield, if you manage to beat all the raids allocated in a given area, the Raid dens spawn a new set of raids, and all the dens light up once more with new lasers.
On the other hand, in Pokémon Scarlet, each day, a new raid is made available for players.
Can tera raids respawn if you beat them all?
🙅♂️Beating all tera raids in the region in Pokémon Scarlet does not make new ones respawn immediately. Instead, they respawn at midnight.
However, if you change the game’s system, the Tera raid dens can respawn before midnight. If you notice that a specific den you are searching for is absent, you should know that dens do not necessarily show up in the exact same place.
In this case, you may have to change the system manually again as you hunt for a particular tera type or Pokémon.
