How to start a Charizard raid (can you do a Charizard solo raid?)

Ever since I developed an interest in playing Pokémon cards, I have experienced many challenges, but for me, conducting the Charizard tera raid solo proved to be the hardest compared to all.

I particularly recall struggling to perform a 7-star Charizard raid using a Bulbasaur Pokémon, which I used to be defeated each time (😭).

I, however, never gave up, and I managed to learn a trick on how to do this raid. Let’s just say I was super happy when I finally did it(😂).

You can use Flutter Mane to perform the Charizard Tera Raid as a solo player. You need to give a covert cloak to the mane to hold so as to avoid getting burned.

You should also provide it with vitamins and feathers to increase its special defence and attack EVs.

You can also use modest mint to maximize its special attack and reduce attack when it changes flutter mane to modest.

The flutter mane you chose should have the following moves in order to be ready for the raid:




As the initial damaging tool

Fake tears and a calm mind

maintaining buffs and debuffs for an easy fight

Draining kiss

any time the HP of Flutter Mane goes down

To find the Charizard tera raid, you’ll first need to unlock high-end raids to enable the seven-star raid, which can be accessed on the world map.

After unlocking it, you can locate it on your map using the flashing dragon icon and host a raid yourself by interacting with the raid den.

It is also possible to search for a raid online if you don’t have one readily available. You just have to visit the poke portal, which is in the main menu, select Tera Raid Battle, and start searching. Be ready to click it as soon as it appears on your screen, as there is usually a lot of competition from others who also want to join the raid.

How do I access the Charizard raid?

It is easy to access the Charizard raid. You just have to look for the Paldea map marked with a pink outline, which is the same as that of the six-star raids. You should consider connecting to the internet if you are not able to see the Charizard raid crystal popping up on your map. If you are interested in trying it more than once a day, try loading up the Tera Raid menu in the Poke portal.

What should I bring to the Charizard raid?

Being a dragon-type Charizard, you’ll require a strong fairy Pokémon to function as your counter. This means that you’ll have to choose between Azumarill or Sylveon as your counter.

I would recommend the Azumarill as your best option because it is a water/fairy type; hence, it has both play-rough and belly dance abilities, which are useful for this raid.

Azumarill is also capable of learning the light screen, and you can use this ability to your advantage as you start the raid. 💪

It is possible to do the raid several times; however, you are only able to catch one Charizard for every game you play (🥲).

Keep in mind that you can only be given one raid in your game per day. However much there may be a limitation, you are still able to do their raids over and over again; all you need to do is join other players raids via the poke portal.

Flutter Mane is the best Pokémon to use for a 7-star Charizard raid. It is important to ensure that the flutter mane has reached at least level 84, has special attacks, a boost in HP, and is a fairy tera type.

In addition, your flutter mane should be equipped with a furious cloak to ensure that it suffers minimal damage from the opponent’s attacks and has your moveset ready to fight.

What level should you be at to access the Charizard raid?

For seven-star raids, you’ll require a strong Pokémon, at least one with the affinity to take down dragons or fire types. Therefore, you should be at least at level 100, where you will still have a hard time defeating the Charizard.

It is also important to note that Charizard can appear defeated but may be able to regain its health. You should, therefore, have your Pokémon ready, keeping in mind that a 7-star Charizard is capable of using seven different attacks during the raid.

Can you reset the Charizard raid?

Yes, you can. However, the raid can only be reset after you have manually performed an acceleration on the clock on their Nintendo Switch.
