As a Fairy-type Pokémon, Sylveon is a threat to Dragon, Fighting, and Dark-type Tera Raids. If you want to build your own Sylveon for Tera raids in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, here’s what you need to know.
The best moves to give Sylveon for Tera Raids
For Tera Raids, Sylveon should have the following moves:
- Moonblast (learned at level 50)
- A coverage move like Hyper Voice and Psychic, Tera Blast is also an option if your Sylveon has a unique Tera type (all are TMs).
- Quiet Mind (TM)
- light screen
With Sylveon’s naturally high Sp. Attack, Moonblast is a must as an Attack Boost (STAB) of the same type. And since his Sp. Defense is also high, Calm Mind will increase that and his Sp. Attack by one level. This will help you set up his stats for Moonblast and other offensive special attacks.
The best nature for a Tera Raid is Sylveon Modest (+Sp. Attack, -Attack). You can even give him Sp. Attack-boosting items like Wise Glasses for that extra punch. Max his IVs/EVs at least on his Sp. Attack.

However, Sylveon can also be used to it support other Pokémon in online Tera battles light screen. Used against Special Attackers like Gengar, Light Screen increases your team’s Special Defense with each use.
As an attacker, Sylveon is only useful if the Tera-type Pokémon it’s up against is weak to Fairy (Dragon, Fighting, or Dark). But as a support, you can take it to support five- to seven-star raids as long as the Pokemon isn’t strong against Fairy (Poison and Steel).
