All Tera Raid Symbols in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

It's almost like its own alphabet

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet's Tera Type mechanic brings a fresh challenge to its battle and raid systems. You'll have to think quickly when deciding what type of Pokémon to challenge another, as a Pokémon's Tera Type may be entirely different from the type that Pokémon would be in the wild. Here's all the type symbols for Tera Raids so you can identify them quicker and defeat Tera Type Pokémon with ease.

All Type Symbols for Tera Raids in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Type symbols were redesigned from the prior generation for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. These symbols also change color depending on what Tera Type of Pokémon you will be facing in each Raid. Refer to the table below for the symbols:

If you are joining a Raid Battle from the Poké Portal you will only have the symbol in the top right corner to notify you of a Pokémon's Tera Type. This symbol will not change colors depending on the various type it represents.

Remember that a Pokémon's wild type will not necessarily be the same as it's Tera Type. The screenshot above shows a party preparing to challenge a Sunkern, normally a Grass-Type Pokémon. However, as indicated in the top right corner of the screen, its Tera Type will be the Ice-Type. This means that this Pokémon will have Ice-Type weaknesses, so Fire, Rock, Steel, and Fighting-Type moves will be super effective. Tera Type Pokémon will still only be able to use moves in their traditional move-set, so this Sunkern would likely attack with Grass-Type moves.
