5 Star Tera Raid Walking Wake Moves

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet Walking Wake Hydro Steam move.
Hydro Steam is one of Walking Wake’s moves.

Before diving head first into the Level 75 Walking Wake Tera Raid you will want to know what you are going up against. The Walking Wake you face is Tera Type Water. Additionally you will want to know the Pokemon’s moveset. The Level 75 Walking Wake you face has the following moves during the raid:

Sunny DayThe user intensifies the sun for five turns, powering up Fire-type attacks. The sunlight also lowers the power of Water-type attacks.
Hydro SteamThe user blasts the target with boiling-hot water. This move’s power is not lowered in harsh sunlight but rather boosted by 50 percent.
Dragon Pulse The target is attacked with a shock wave generated by the user’s gaping mouth.
Noble RoarLetting out a noble roar, the user intimidates the target and lowers the target’s Attack and Sp. Atk stats.
FlamethrowerThe target is scorched with an intense blast of fire. This may also leave the target with a burn.
Protosynthesis (Ability)Boosts the Pokemon’s most proficient stat in harsh sunlight or if the Pokemon is holding Booster Energy.

As you can see from the Walking Wake moveset there is a bit of a coverage issue. This Pokemon deals Water, Fire, and Dragon type damage. When it first appears on the battlefield it will setup it’s Protoshynthesis ability by putting up Sunny Day. This makes it a bit of a challenge if you come in with a Grass-Type Pokemon as a counter.
