Best Charizard Build for Tera Raids in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Keep the raid battles coming.

Charizard will always be among the most sought-after Pokémon in any Pokémon game. That same sentiment goes for the latest Pokémon Scarlet & Violet and even more so when it comes to Tera Raids. The best build you could have for a Charizard that you intend to put into the Tera Raids utilizes the ability Solar Power.

This increases the user's Special Attack by 50%. The downside to this is that the Pokémon's HP decreases by 12.5% of its max HP at the end of every turn. After this, you need to ensure that Charizard keeps its Dragon Tera Type. If you're curious about the best moves for your Charizard for Tera Raids, then keep reading on!
