Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: Maushold Valentine’s Day Raid

Get your lovey-dovey Maushold couple in this Pokémon Scarlet and Violet holiday raid!

Fairy Tera Maushold will represent Valentine's Day as a cute duo of Pokémon with a Tera heart overhead.

Ability: Friend Guard/Cheek Pouch/Technician
Tera Type: Fairy
- Bullet Seed
- Encore 
- Population Bomb  
- Play Rough

Maushold is commonly appearing from one-star raids to five-star raids on Monday, February 13th and Tuesday, February 14th. The most commonly appearing Maushold is the five-star Fairy Tera Maushold. Its general purpose (besides celebrating Valentine's day) would be to make it a Dragon/Dark Type counter by giving it a heavily boosted Play Rough. Maushold already has multiple useful competitive sets, but who knows, maybe this one will be built into something surprising!

Best Raid Pokémon

With the maximum star rating for this Raid being five-star, a strong Steel or Poison Pokémon is all that is really necessary to defeat it. However, it will take multiple well build super-effective attackers to really get the job done. Pokémon that became popular in one-time events, such as Belly Drum physical Pokémon and Stored Power Special Attackers, are great for quickly dishing out heavy damage.


Besides Maushold itself, trainers can also receive Bottle Caps, Tera Shards, Rare Candies, and lots of sandwich-making items to make delicious Valentine's Day treats. This event raid is not like seven-star Raids in which only one of the event Pokémon can be caught. In five-star events, the event Pokémon can be caught an unlimited amount of times by each trainer.
