In order to have access to the 7-star Cinderance Tera Raid in your own game, you need to have access to 6-star raids. You need to achieve this via the following steps in order:

  • Complete the main story - three main story paths, Area Zero, and roll credits.
  • Have rematches with all gym leaders on behalf of Champion Geeta. 
  • Win the Ace Academy Tournament, which will unlock 5-star Tera Raids.
  • Keep hosting 5-star Tera Raids until you get a call from Jacq saying 6-star Tera Raids have been unlocked.
  • Look for a black fighting-type Tera Raid symbol on your map with a pink outline. This will be Cinderace. 

Alternatively, you can try to join a Cinderace Tera Raid via Scarlet and Violet's Poke Portal. After connecting to the internet, select "Tera Raid Battle", the Cinderace raid will likely appear amongst raids which are actively searching for teammates.

There will be many trying to jump into these. So, if you're not able to - press the X button to "check for new postings", and try to enter as soon as you see a Cinderace raid pop up.

That is all you need to know about the Cinderace Tera Raid start time in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and how to find it. For more exclusive Pokemon, check out how to find Roaring Moon, or where to find Iron Valiant
