Of course, there is a simpler option than all this, and that is that a player who has completed everything in the list above invites us to the 7-Stars Mewtwo Tera Raid by sharing a Link Code. Ask your friends, maybe someone has it available and can invite you. And remember that to force the game to be updated with the latest Tera Raids events, we must go to PokéPortal > Mystery Gift > Receive news from the Poképortal.
Where can I find Mewtwo’s 7-Star Tera Raid in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?
The Black Crystal that corresponds to Mewtwo’s 7-Star Tera Raid can randomly appear anywhere on the map in our game. Therefore, we need to look carefully to see if it has appeared or not. It is a black psychic-type icon with a shiny outline.
We can also go directly to its Tera Raid from the PokéPortal > Tera Raids. Here we select the silhouette of Mewtwo.

How do you beat 7-Star Mewtwo in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?
The 7-Stars Mewtwo Tera Raid is extremely complicated, and it is designed for us to use Mew, as all Mews present will receive a 50% HP bonus and a 20% bonus to all other stats. The ideal is to play with friends, each with a Mew. We can get Mew for free in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet by using the Mystery Gift code “GETY0URMEW” (without the quotes).
This is a Tera Raid that is almost impossible to complete without coordination. We recommend that you play with three friends and that all four players use Mews, with at least a couple of Mews focusing on offense and the other two on support and healing so that no one dies.
One of Mew’s strengths is that it can learn any move. This gives it unparalleled versatility.
The attacking Mew should have the following configuration:
Support new should have the following configuration:

What rewards do we get for defeating 7-Star Mewtwo in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?
The first reward is the most obvious: a Psychic Tera-type Mewtwo with the Mightiest Mark. It’s level 100, its moveset is Psystrike, Aura Sphere, Ice Beam and Calm Mind, its ability is Unnervable, it has Modest Nature (+Special Attack, -Attack), maximum IVs (Unbeatable) and minimum EVs for us to upgrade as we like. As always, we can only get one of these Mewtwos per game.
We also have rewards in the form of many L, XL and Rare Candies, an Ability Patch (which allows us to change a Pokémon’s Ability to a different one), Ability Capsules, treasures such as Nuggets, Star Shards or Comet Fragments, upgrade items such as Iron, and many Psychic Tera Shards.
In addition, if we use Mew in this tough Tera Raid, he will also earn the Mightiest Mark.
