Hisuian Samurott Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

With Thanksgiving and Black Friday right around the corner, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet reveal a new seven-star Tera raid boss for trainers to face.

During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players will have the opportunity to take on Hisuian Samurott the Unrivaled in a Seven-star Tera Raid battle. The battle will likely put Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trainers to the test, as Hisuian Samurott has a host of moves that serve as counters for various Pokemon types.

Known as the Formidable Pokemon, Samurott is the final evolution of Oshawott, the Water-type starter of the Unova region. While Samurott first appeared in Pokemon Black and White, the aquatic critter received a Hisuian regional form in Pokemon Legends: Arceus that turned it into a Water and Dark dual-type Pokemon. As a result of its dual-typing and the versatile move pool at its disposal, Hisuian Samurott is one of the most utilized Pokemon in competitive battles.

However, trainers that do not have Pokemon Legends: Arceus will soon have a chance to catch a Hisuian Samurott of their own. According to Serebii.net, the Seven-star Tera Raid battle against Hisuian Samurott the Unrivaled will start on Thursday, November 23, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern, and conclude on Sunday, November 26, at 6:59 p.m. Eastern. The event will repeat on the following weekend, from November 30 to December 3, at the same start and end times. Hisuian Samurott the Unrivaled will have the Water-type as its Tera type and will have the Mightiest Mark.

Hisuian Samurott will have access to its Hidden Ability, Sharpness. This ability will boost the power of slashing moves, such as its signature moves Ceaseless Edge and Razor Shell, by an additional 50%. With a near-even distribution of the Attack and Special Attack stats, Hisuian Samurott the Unrivaled may serve as a foil to the Seven Star Tera Raids against Eevee, which were criticized by some Pokemon trainers for being too easy. By contrast, Hisuian Samurott is also capable of using moves such as Drill Run, X-Scissor, and Aerial Ace to cover its weaknesses to Electric and Grass Pokemon.
