Following the special Tera Raids featuring the new Paradox forms for legendaries, Decidueye will be the newest contender arriving in Paldea for some limited-time battles, where trainers will have the rare chance of catching the Grass starter from Generation VII in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. But when will the Arrow Quill Pokemon arrive in those games?
When Is The Decidueye Tera Raid Arriving in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? – Answered
According to official news, Decidueye’s challenge should be available from March 17 to March 19. Following his brief appearance, the Grass/Ghost Pokemon will be back for the following weekend from March 24 to March 26 for a final run. His initial coming will be held one week later after Walking Wake and Iron Leaves’ 7-star Tera Raid challenges come to their end.
During this period only, players will have their chance at fighting the Mighty Decidueye in its Flying-type Terastallized form. It will also boast its Mighty Mark when captured and is the first Gen VII starter to arrive for these special events.

Just like previous 7-star Tera Raids before it, you can challenge this powerful foe alone or alongside other trainers, and after successfully defeating it, you have your own chance at catching Decidueye. While it cannot be shiny, it has naturally high EVs and you can then breed it as much as you like to get a shiny Rowlet to your collection. You may challenge it multiple times but can only catch one per save file.
If you’re familiarized with other similar battles such as the current Walking Wake/Iron Leaves or any of the previous Unrivaled starters, you know exactly what awaits you in this battle, so you should be extra prepared before tackling it.
Steel-type Pokemon might be a good call here as they can resist both Flying and Grass-type attacks, meaning that you’ll only need to worry about its Ghost-type moves. In the same vein, Ice might be a good offensive choice for quickly disposing of it.
