Your Quaquaval should know the above moves when taking it into Tera Raid Battles in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You should also choose the Jolly or Adamant nature to increase either its Attack or Speed, as these are its strongest stats. The Moxie ability is less useful in Raid Battles, so go with Torrent instead. For its held item, go with the Muscle Band to increase its physical strength.

Start the match with Quaquaval using Swords Dance to increase its already high Attack. You should then follow up with its signature move, Aqua Step, to gain a boost to Speed. After getting the boost to Attack and Speed, you can switch to using Close Combat and Ice Spinner, depending on the weakness of your opponent. Alternatively, you can continue to use Aqua Step if it is weak against Water-type attacks.
