The 7-Star Raids in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet are some of the toughest encounters you can choose to accept. These require you to bring a well-thought-out strategy against the Pokémon you’re fighting and work alongside your teammates to bring this harrowing opponent down and reap the many rewards.

The next 7-Star Raid to hit Pokémon Scarlet & Violet will be Chesnaught, the Grass and Fighting-type Pokémon from the Kalos region. This will be the only way for you to acquire this Pokémon and add them to your collection. This guide covers all Chesnaught 7-Star Raid Dates, Tera Types, and Counters you can use in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

When is Pokémon Scarlet & Violet’s Chesnaught 7-Star Raids event?

While these raids are available at 7-Star Raid locations, Chesnaught will be the only opponent. You will need to work alongside other players to defeat this opponent, and should you complete it, you’ll earn a Chesnaught with the Mightiest Mark, along with six perfect IVs.

What will be Chesnaught’s Tera Type in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet 7-Star Raids?

We can confirm that Chesnaught will be a Rock Tera Type, widely different from typical Grass and Fighting-type, but you should still expect to see it using these attacks during the battle. While Chesnaught is a Rock Tera Type, it will have all the resistances and weaknesses of a standard Rock-type species of Pokémon.
