The next Tera Raid Battle has been announced Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The 7-Star Tera Raid Battle event begins on Friday, February 24, 2023 at 7:00 PM EST/4:00 PM PST and ends on Monday, February 27, 2023 at 9:59 AM EST/6:59pm PST Pokemon Day Pokemon presents showcase.
In this raid you face off against Pikachu with the Water Tera type and a most powerful mark. Pikachu is the fourth 7-Star Raid to take place since scarlet and violet released in 2022. It is the only dedicated Water Tera type and the first appearance for the franchise mascot during that time.
Previous 7-star Pokemon were Greninja, Cinderace, and Charizard, all with two sets of Raid Data instead of the one set currently listed for Pikachu. If you can defeat Pikachu before time runs out, you will get the most powerful character. The mighty Pikachu will appear at Black Tera Raid Crystals.
This will be the twelfth Tera Raid combat event since launch scarlet and violet. With the end of the raid on Pokemon Day instead of 7 p.m. EST / 4:00 PM PST As with previous raids, players have also been speculating if another Tera Raid will be announced during Pokemon Presents.
What’s interesting is that this event ends at 15:00 UTC on Pokémon Day, which is one hour after the start of the Pokémon Gifts… and not at midnight UTC like all other raid events

Does that mean they have another 7* raid planned after that which will be announced in the presents?

Whether or not this speculation turns out to be true remains to be seen, but make sure to tune in to the event for other Pokemon news. Until then, good luck in Pikachu’s 7-Star Raid!
