Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Terastral Pokemon are the latest and greatest evolution gimmick in the franchise. These crystal-like Pokemon replace Dynamax/Gigantamax Pokemon that were rife in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

When a Pokemon Terastralizes, its usual typing is changed to a Tera Type. This Tera Type varies from Pokemon to Pokemon and can even be different within the same species. For example, Pikachu's usual type is Electric but its Tera Type may be Flying when it becomes Terastral. This allows for different battling strategies and could even save you when you're up against a strong foe that has a typing advantage over you.
