Charizard arrives in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet; where is it and how to catch it?

Charizard, one of the most popular and beloved Pokémon by fans, makes its debut in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, the most recent installments of the series released on Nintendo Switch. In this article, we tell you how to get Charizard in Paldea. Read on:

How to get Charizard in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Charizard has arrived in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet as part of a limited-time event: it appears in 7-Star Black Crystal Tera Raids between Thursday, December 1st at 4:00 pm PST toDecember 4th at 3:59 pm PST. The Pokémon will be back again in 7-Star Black Crystal Tera Raids, between Thursday, December 15th at 4:00 pm PST to Sunday, December 18th at 3:59 pm. In short: if we want it, we will have to defeat it in a dangerous 7-Star Incursion and catch it at the end. We will only be able to get this Charizard once per game.

This is a Charizard with the Tera Dragon type, which gives it even more versatility and interesting options when it comes to combat. And, in addition, to remind us that it is an event Charizard, it comes with the Mightiest Mark, to remind us of our feat.

Another option, of course, is to wait for a player who has already caught it to exchange it. And we remind you that Charizard can also have offspring in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet; using the Picnics and having it in the team together with some compatible Pokémon (Ditto, we're looking at you), we have the possibility of obtaining Charmander Eggs that can eventually evolve into Charmeleon and Charizard.

Charizard and the Charmander line are not part of Paldea's PokéDex, but this does not prevent it from having made it into the game, and other popular Pokémon will similarly make it into the game in the future.

This is a particularly difficult Raid, although we may be able to overcome it by using the "trick" of the Iron Hands Fighting Tera type using Belly Drum several times to increase the Attack and Drain Punch to inflict high damage while healing. Otherwise, we remind you that this Charizard is a Dragon-type Tera, and that this Type is weak to Dragon, Fairy and Ice-type attacks. Another very good option is to have a Flutter Mane (the ancient relative of Misdreavus, exclusive to Scarlet) with Fairy Tera-type, level 100, good IVs and EVs focused on Special Attack with Moonblast, Calm Mind, Draining Kiss and Fake Tears.
