Nintendo revealed that Great Tusk and Iron Treads will be the next 5-star Tera Raid battles in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The new Tera Raid event will be available throughout May 19-22, 2023. Great Tusk will appear as a Tera Raid for players that own Pokemon Scarlet, while Iron Treads will appear for owners of Pokemon Violet. Additionally, the Tera Types for Great Tusk and Iron Treads will be randomized. [Thanks, Game Watch!]

Great Tusk is the past Paradox Pokemon version of the elephant pokemon Donphan. It is a Ground/Fighting-type Pokemon. Meanwhile, Iron Treads is the future Paradox Pokemon version of Donphan, and it is a Ground/Steel dual-type.

Both Great Tusk and Iron Treads can only be obtained in the Area Zero of their respective versions. Additionally, both Pokemon serve as the Quaking Earth Titan boss fight in the Path of Legends storyline of Scarlet and Violet.

As a reminder, Chesnaught will return as the current 7-star Tera Raid battle in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet between May 19-22, 2023 as well.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are immediately available for the Nintendo Switch. The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk DLC content will release on Fall and Winter 2023 respectively as part of the DLC Expansion Pass.
