Pokémon Crimson brings new raid event – and leaves me disappointed
In just a few days, a new Tera Raid event will start in Pokémon Crimson and Crimson, where you can grab either a special Tyranitar or a special Brutalanda. However, there is a small catch.
Date and time of the Tera Raid with Brutalanda/Despotar
Here are the key data for the new Tera Raid event (via bisafans):
- Begin: December 9, 2022 at 1 a.m
- End: December 12, 2022 at 12:59 am
During this event, you can fight Brutalanda and Tyranitar in 4 and 5 star raids. The raids should be much easier than the 7 star raid against Charizard with the titan character. Both Pokémon will also be of a special Tera type. It is not yet known what these are.
The catch mentioned above: For this Tera event, Game Freak is sticking to the edition differences between Crimson and Crimson. So you can only fight and catch Brutalanda in the Pokémon Crimson raids. Tyranitar, on the other hand, only appears in Crimson raids.
The conventional versions of the two Pokémon are also exclusive to the edition: we only find Childwurm, Draschel and Brutalanda in purple. Larvitar, Pupitar, and Despotar only hang around in Crimson. If you want to have them all, you have to use the swap feature. You can find a list of all edition-specific Pokémon here:

Don’t forget Charizard: In addition, you will soon have the chance to face Charizard again in a Tera Raid. The Tera Raid event starts on December 16th and runs until December 19th. All information about the Charizard Raid can be found here.
