These are the moves your Grimmsnarl should know when going into Tera Raid Battles in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Additionally, you should have the Prankster ability, Fairy Tera type, and an Impish nature for maximum efficiency. We also recommend giving Grimmsnarl the Light Clay held item to increase the amount of time Reflect and Light Screen stays up.

Start the battle off by using Taunt, which will prevent the Tera Pokémon from using any status moves. Once you have done this, use Light Screen or Reflect to provide protection from its attacks. Use the move that matches the Tera Pokémon's preferred attacking stat. Once you set these up, you can begin using cheers to power up your Grimmsnarl and allies or use Play Rough to damage your opponent. Finally, use Light Screen/Reflect as needed throughout the match to keep your defenses up.
