How to Defeat Decidueye 7-Star Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Get this OG Pokemon with the perfect skill combination.
A new, and returning Pokemon from a previous version has arrived to lure players to participate in 7-star Tera Raid Battles. This is none other than Decidueye.
However, this Pokemon will only be available for a limited time, specifically from March 17 to March 19 and March 24 to March 26.
If you want to catch this Pokemon, this guide will teach how you to beat the raid.
Beating the 7-star Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
If you plan on catching Decidueye from the 7-star Tera Raid Battle, you must first understand what type of Pokemon it is so you can easily counter it.
Decidueye is a grass- and ghost-type Pokemon that will be flying most of the time. With that information, you can choose the right Pokemon to fight it.
You also have to make sure to do it online because fighting Decidueye solo will be a lot more difficult.
Given its type, one of the best Pokemon to use against Decidueye is Bellibolt, an electric frog with skills that can counter Decidueye’s abilities.
However, to make everything a lot easier, you can modify some of Bellibolt’s skills.
The perfect skill combinations for Bellibolt are Acid Spray, Reflect, Thunderbolt, and Chilling Water. As you can see, Bellibolt doesn’t have the skills Chilling Water and Reflect.
You have to use the Learn by the TMs in order to add them to its arsenal. Now that you have everything to fight Decidueye, it’s time to engage in battle.
How to Use Bellibolt Against Decidueye
At the start of the game, use Chilling Water to reduce Decidueye’s attack by one level for the next five turns. If you have other Bellibolt on your team, use Reflect to increase the whole team’s defense.
After your first move, Decidueye will also reduce one of your teammates’ attacks and create a shield at the same time.
Luckily, you have special abilities that can still lower its attacks and defense while your other teammates are attacking it.
From time to time, Decidueye will nullify all the effects and remove all the debuffs it received. Once it does this, you have to use the Chilling Water once again to reduce its attacks. Otherwise, you will receive a great amount of damage from its attacks.
When Decidueye’s attacks and defense fall, use the Thunderbolt to deal massive damage. Other than Thunderbolt, you can also use other abilities, especially once the shield is broken.
Do this pattern repeatedly, and you will defeat Decidueye in no time.
