The Drifblim and Mismagius Tera Raid event event runs from January 20 (00:00 UTC) to January 22 (23:59 UTC). While the event is active players can take part in 3-5 Star Tera Raid Battles against Drifblim (in Scarlet) or Mismagius (in Violet) of various Tera Types. The point of this raid event is to allow players the chance to snag these two Pokemon in any of the different Tera Types.



Where to Find Drifblim and Mismagius Tera Raids?

You have a couple of methods to finding the Drifblim and Mismagius Tera Raids in your game while the event is active. As long as your copy of the game is up-to-date you will find Drifblim and Mismagius raids on either the world map or through the Poke Portal Tera Raid system. Finding the raids using either method is fairly simple.

The raids that feature Drifblim and Mismagius appear on your map as raid symbols with a goldish shimmer to them (see screenshot above for example). You get a few of these per day to take part in. If you want to join others, to get the copy exclusive Pokemon, connect to the internet and use the Poke Portal to access the Tera Raid screen. You should see joinable raids here.



What are Drifblim and Mismagius Weak To?

Both Hydreigon and Dragapult share the same base Ghost type. They do, however, have different additional types to be aware of. Hydreigon has additional Dark type, making it Dragon/Dark. Dragapult has additional Ghost type, making it Dragon/Ghost.

To counter the type combination of Drifblim you want to use a Pokemon that is Ghost/Dark/Electric/Ice or Rock type. There is no super effective type for this Pokemon, so choosing from any of these is your next best bet.

To counter the type combination of Mismagius you want to use a Pokemon that is either Ghost or Dark. There is no super effective type for this Pokemon, so choosing from either of these is your next best bet.

Once thing to note when dealing with Tera Raids is the Pokemon’s Tera Type. This throws a bit of a wrench into types. For maximum success you want to use a Pokemon that is strong against the raid Pokemon’s base types and its Tera Type as well.

  • Rare Candy.
  • XP Candies in XL, L, and M.
  • Feathers.
  • Berries.
  • Tera Shards (of Tera Type).
  • Pearls or Nuggets.
  • Ability Capsules.
  • Drifloon Gas material (Drifblim).
  • Misdreavus Tears material (Mismagius).

If you are successful in completing the raid battles you will receive a selection from the rewards list above. The good folks over at Serebii have the percentage chance drops for the different items, so check it out here if you are interested.

TheDrifblim and Mismagius tera Raid Event can be viewed mainly as a filler event. This short event can be used to farm up on a variety of different supplies fairly easily. The next big raid you should be looking forward to is the Greninja raid coming next week!
