However, there’s no way to choose which Tera Type you get, nor is there any way to re-roll for a better Mew – it’s just the luck of the draw!

If you bring Mew into battle against Mewtwo Tera Raids, your Pokemon will receive a 50% boost in HP and 20% boost to all its other stats.

Mewtwo arrives in Tera Raid Battles on September 1, 2023.
