Considering Typhlosion’s base Fire and Ghost Tera-Type, its moveset, and strategy, this Pokemon could make an excellent counter for this Scarlet and Violet 7-Star Raid:

Annihilape Typhlosion Tera Raid Build

  • Moves
    • Screech
    • Rage Fist
  • Nature
    • Adamant
  • Ability
    • Defiant
  • Tera Type
    • Ghost
      • The default Fighting Tera Type also works
      • Normal/Flying/Ground/Water/Fairy are also alternatives as all take 1x damage
  • Hold Item
    • Shell Bell
  • EV Distribution
    • HP – 252
    • Attack – 252
  • IVs
    • Perfect IVs on all stats
  • Level
    • 100


  • Lower Typhlosion’s Defense by using Screech on the first turn.
  • From this point on, simply spam Rage Fist. This move’s damage increases every time Annihilape receives damage.
  • Annihilape will get KO’d several times despite recovering HP with its Shell Bell. However, this won’t matter as it can withstand a Shadow Ball and still cause damage during that turn.
  • Once the option to Terastallize is available, use it and continue spamming Rage Fist for extra damage.
  • There is a big chance Annihilape will be KO’d while being Terastallized. But this is not a problem, simply continue spamming Rage Fist until the battle is over.


  • Annihilape is weak to Shadow Ball, but thanks to Rage Fist gaining extra damage every time this Pokemon is hit, it can pack sufficient punch to defeat Typhlosion in a solo Raid.
  • The huge amount of damage that Rage Fist can eventually deal makes Shell Bell pretty effective at recovering HP.


  • Since this build involves being KO’d several times, it is not precisely recommended for only group raids with random players. Other players might get KO’d too often, making this build unviable.
  • The Typhlosion Raid can be very unpredictable, as this mon’ often raises its shield early on. Under some circumstances, there is a chance Typhlosion could take Annihilape down too many times before it can deal enough damage, hence failing the raid.

Farigiraf Typhlosion Tera Raid Build

  • Moves
  • Nature
    • Quiet
  • Ability
    • Sap Sipper
  • Tera Type
    • Psychic
  • Hold Item
    • Shell Bell
  • EV Distribution
    • HP – 252
    • Sp. Def. – 252
  • IVs
    • Perfect IVs on all stats
  • Level
    • 100


  • Start with Skill Swap to trade your Sap Sipper ability for Typhlosion’s Flash Fire. This will protect you from Eruptions during most of this Raid.
  • Heal after Typhlosion’s first attack, usually an Eruption. Near the end of the second turn, Typhlosion will negate all abilities. Due to this, having as much HP as possible is essential since you will take one last Eruption.
  • Heal after the second attack (usually one more Eruption).
  • From this point on, the strategy is pretty similar to what you would typically expect from the Slowbro Nasty Plot Tera Raid build. Raise stats as much as possible with Amnesia and Nasty Plot, to release a massive hit with Stored Power.
  • Use Amnesia 3 times.
  • Use Nasty Plot 3 times.
  • Use Stored Power. Terastallize when the option becomes available to cause massive damage with Stored Power.


  • Thanks to Skill Swap, you will not have to worry about Typhlosion’s Eruption during most turns of this Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 7-Star Tera Raid.
  • Farigiraf Normal Type makes it immune to Typhlosion’s Shadow Ball move.
  • This build is ideal for online Raids, especially with friends, as it is unlikely any moves or the Skill Swap could affect other players’ strategies.


  • Healing is necessary on the first few turns, and in the worst-case scenario, Farigiraf could be KO’d during these turns. This will not make the Raid unviable, but it can become more challenging to achieve a victory.

Mighty Typhlosion Weaknesses

Mighty Typhlosion will have a Ghost Tera-Type during this Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 7 Star Tera Raid, making it 2x weak to Ghost and Dark moves.

Considering this, you should avoid taking Poison, Bug, Normal, and Fighting Pokemon to this Raid, as these move types only deal half damage or are completely ineffective against Ghost types.

Ghost (2x)Poison (1/2x)
Dark (2x)Bug (1/2x)
Normal (Immune)
Fighting (Immune)

Furthermore, due to its Ghost, Fire, Fairy, and Ground moveset, avoid taking the following Pokemon types to battle as all take 2x damage from Typhlosion:

  • Fighting
  • Poison
  • Rock
  • Bug
  • Ghost
  • Steel
  • Fire
  • Grass
  • Electric
  • Psychic
  • Ice
  • Dragon

Typhlosion Tera Raid Moveset, Level, Ability & More

  • Moveset:
    • Eruption (Fire)
    • Shadow Ball (Ghost)
    • Play Rough (Fairy)
    • Earthquake (Ground)
  • Extra Moves:
    • Sunny Day (Fire)
  • Level: 100
  • Tera Type: Ghost
  • Ability: Flash Fire
    • The Flash Fire ability makes Typhlosion immune to fire attacks in this Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 7 Star Tera Raid.
  • IVs: Perfect 31 IVs in every stat
  • Nature: Possibly Modest

Contrary to the more varied moveset previous Pokemon presented on 7 Star Raids in Scarlet and Violet, Typhlosion is somewhat limited. A fire move was a guarantee, and so was Shadow Ball due to its Ghost Tera Type.

Aside from these Fire and Ghost moves, against all odds, Typhlosion sports a Fairy/Ground combo with the inclusion of Play Rough and Earthquake.

Play Rough particularly was a big surprise! Since Typhlosion is mostly an Special Attacker, it was unlikely this move would be included in the raid.
