Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Tera Raid battles allow up to four players to connect and battle a strong Pokemon with a unique Tera Type. While you can complete these battles with NPCs, it works best when playing with friends and family so you can coordinate your attacks. This is especially true when trying to complete six and seven-star Tera Raid battles. If you’re running into the “You Weren’t Able to Join” error when connecting to a Tera Raid battle, here’s how to fix it.

How to Fix “You Weren’t Able to Join” Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

The “You Weren’t Able to Join” can be fixed by continuously pressing the button after every error message. This message means one of two things.

Either the room you’re currently trying to join is full, and you won’t be able to access it, or the Pokemon that you are looking for doesn’t have a room currently available. However, if you keep clicking the search option, it will put you in the room as soon as one is available. This is an easy way to ensure you get into the room as soon as another player posts one.

If you continue to try and have no luck, it’s best to try and start a room for that Pokemon yourself. This will require you running around to the different Tera Crystals on your map and hoping to find the Pokemon and level you’re looking for. It’s not an ideal solution, but you can try it.
