How to get more six star Tera Crystals to spawn in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

The type, levels, and locations of Tera Crystals in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet reset every day (in game). A day is roughly 72 minutes. So, once you beat a six star Raid, you need to wait one day for another to respawn.

A workaround for this is to change the time and date on your Nintendo Switch. If you save, turn off the game, and change the day to the next, the Tera Crystals available will be different.

Six star Tera Raids aren’t the most difficult ones you can take on in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. There are also seven star Raids, which are event exclusives. Check the official Pokémon Twitter account or patch notes to see if there are any ones active.
