Skeledirge will see a lot of use in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, being one of the three starter choices in the Paldea region. It also has great typing, stats, and move pool, making it perfect for end-game content. This may leave you wondering what the best build for Skeledirge is for Tera Raid Battles in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Best moves for Skeledirge for Tera Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Give Skeledrige the following moves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for Tera Raid Battles.
- Torch Song
- Shadow Ball
- Sunny Day
- Slack Off/Endure
Skeledirge should have the above moves when using it for Tera Raid Battles in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. We also recommend the Unaware ability, Modest nature, and the Throat Spray held item, which will further boost Skeledirge's Special Attack when using Torch Song.
At the start of the battle and when not battling a Fire-type Pokémon, use Sunny Day to boost the power of Torch Song. Once you have this activated, start attacking with Torch Song to raise Skeledirge's Special Attack and deal damage. If you are battling a Pokémon weak to Ghost-type attacks, use Shadow Ball. From there, Endure or Slack Off are your defensive options, providing healing or saving Skeledirge from being knocked out.
