Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are set to be another fantastic RPG adventure with a bunch of new features added to the traditional formula. One of these additions is Terastral Pokemon, something that has never been seen before in previous games, potentially giving you the edge over your opponents in the heat of battle.

Below, we'll be detailing everything we know about Terastral Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet so you can be informed as possible on these sparkling new Mons ahead of your journey through the Paldea region.

What Is A Terastral Pokemon?

A Terastral Pokemon, as previously stated, is a new addition to the Pokemon franchise. These crystal-like Pokemon are almost a replacement for Dynamax 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.

How Do You Terastralize Pokemon?

If you want to get a Terstral Pokemon, you can only do this within a Pokemon battle. You will also need a new item specific to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet called a Tera Orb. It doesn't stop there though, your Tera Orb will also need to be charged in order for the Terastralize option to appear in battle.

To charge your Tera Orb, you will need to locate Terastral crystals throughout your travels in the Paldea region to receive Terastral energy, similar to finding Raid areas in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Once you have all of the pre-requisites, you will have the option to Terastralize your Pokemon when battling.

What Pokemon Can Become Terastral?

If you're looking for a list of Pokemon that can become Terastral, it's going to be a pretty long list. It'll actually be the full Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex in fact as all Pokemon in the Paldean Pokedex will have the option to become Terastral when you have acquired the Tera Orb.
