The leaked information suggests that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Mewtwo Tera Raid will be announced on Aug 8th, providing exciting raid battles for players to encounter the powerful Psychic-type Pokémon.
The Pokemon Company recently announced a 35-minute Pokemon Presents livestream scheduled for August 2023, promising exciting news and updates about the franchise.
Shortly after the announcement, speculations arose that Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Mewtwo would make an appearance in Tera Raids, and this speculation seems to have hit the mark, as a recent leak suggests that Mewtwo Raids are indeed on the horizon.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Mewtwo Tera Raid Leak
Following the end of the Unrivaled Rillaboom Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, each transferable Starter Pokemon had its own seven-star Tera Raid. Now, fans are eagerly anticipating the next raid event, and a Legendary Tera Raid involving Mewtwo might be just around the corner.
CentroLeaks, a known dataminer in the Pokemon community shared a Japanese Nintendo Switch Online advertisement featuring the unannounced Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Mewtwo Tera Raid, hinting that it could be revealed during the upcoming 35-minute Pokemon Presents on Aug. 8, as suggested by insiders.
If the leaked image is accurate, the Tera Raid Mewtwo will possess the Psychic Tera Type, making its Psychic attacks even more powerful. And if so, players may want to bring along a Dark-type counter to tackle this formidable opponent.
Past Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Mewtwo Tera Raid Leaks
This is not the first time rumors of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Mewtwo Tera Raid have surfaced. In June, an image of Mewtwo with the Mightiest Mark, an exclusive mark for seven-star Tera Raid bosses like Rillaboom, Greninja, and Charizard, was leaked.
Additionally, in July 2023, a Twitter user named mattyoukhana discovered in-game dialogue related to the mythical Pokemon Mew, hinting at its involvement in a Tera Raid with a seven-star Mewtwo. Well-known Pokemon data miner Sibuna_Switch further investigated and found that the dialogue triggered when Mew faced off against Mewtwo in a Tera Raid.
Notably, Mew was the only Pokemon to receive the Mightiest Ribbon reward if it managed to defeat Mewtwo in the raid. Meanwhile, Mew’s debut in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has also been leaked, indicating its connection to Tera Raids.
According to the leaks, Mew won’t be a raid boss like Mewtwo but can be used as a powerful counter for Tera Raids, receiving significant buffs at the beginning of the battle that normal Pokemon don’t get.
With the highly anticipated Pokemon Presents event just days away, fans are excited to see if more information about Mewtwo, Mew, and future Tera Raids will be revealed.
Apart from the announcement of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Mewtwo Tera Raid, fans are also speculating reveals on Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC packs, Detective Pikachu Returns video game, Pokemon Go, as well as additional content in Scarlet and Violet during the August 8th Pokemon Presents event.
Since all we know is that one DLC pack will be released in the autumn of 2023 and the other in the winter of 2023, it’s also probable that Pokemon fans will be given a specific release date for the packs.
Also, with recent launches such as Pokemon Sleep and major updates to Pokemon Go, a Pokemon Presents August 2023 event would serve as an ideal platform to showcase these exciting developments.
