If you’re a fan of the Tera Raid events popping up in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, we have some good news for you: two new Tera Raid events have been confirmed for both Pokémon games. According to the internet’s home of Pokémon, Serebii.net, a unique Valentine’s Day Pokémon Scarlet Pokémon Violet Tera Raid event is on the way and will focus on Tandemaus – the “couple Pokémon” from Paldea region. How adorable, right?

This loved-up Tera Raid event is expected to run in both Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet from 16:00 PST / 19:00 EST on February 12 and 00:00 GMT on February 13 for a full 48 hours – right across Valentine’s Day. Unlike your run of the mill Tandemaus, this Tera Raid is going to offer up a Fairy-type variation of the ‘mon. Is this going to make it one of the best Pokémon Scarlet and best Pokémon Violet Pokémon? We can’t say for sure, but they are cute.

However, this isn’t the only thing you should be looking forward to when it comes to Tera Raid events in the latest generation of Pokémon games. Serebii has also confirmed that a brand new seven-star Tera Raid Battle event is coming to both Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet both before and after the Valentine’s Day event.

Running between January 27 and January 29, as well as February 10 and February 12, this Pokémon Scarlet Pokémon Violet 7 Star Tera Raid Battle event is going to feature a Poison Tera type Pokémon and the Mightiest Mark – according to Serebii – and it will only be available to be caught once per save file. So, there’s a lot riding on this one.

The only problem is, we don’t actually know what Pokémon we’re going to be going up against in this new seven-star Tera Raid Battle. But, that’s a little bit exciting, isn’t it? With the likes of Charizard, Cinderace, and Delibird all making their debut in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet through these limited-time events, we could very-well be getting yet another currently-unavailable Pokémon very soon.

Thinking about Poison-type Pokémon, we could see anyone from the likes of Weezing and Tentacruel, to Gengar or Roserade take centre-stage in the event. We’re really going to just have to wait and see who’s coming up next.
