Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Best Armarouge Build for Tera Raids

Here is all you need to know about the best build for Armarouge for Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Tera Raid battles are quite a new addition in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Once upon a time, these were known as Raid Battles. In the sandy wave of time, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduced this feature once again. Now, in Paldea, you can join the Tera Raids only and only with your Terastal Pokemon. Means, your pocket monsters should be Terastallized to be in this raid.

Say, you have Armarouge in your pocket. This Fire/ Psychic-type Pokémon evolves from Charcadet and is exclusive in Pokemon Scarlet. And in Pokemon Violet, Charcadet evolves into Ceruledge. Say, you are playing the Scarlet version and want to take Armarouge into Tera Raids. You need more or less the perfect build for this tank type to be on the field. And that is what we will be discussing today.

Best Armarouge Build for Tera Raids

Armarouge is one of the special attackers in Pokemon Scarlet, so you better plan on equipping the Special Attacks at the very first. Needless to say, you better spend every bit penny until the Effort Value maxes out. Next, we will be focusing on the Defense stats as these Tera Raid battles are not like the regular types we see on a regular basis.

Now, let’s get into these builds.

General Build

This build can be used on any occasion, say, facing the most challenging opponents to exploring the areas. This general, more or less the best build for Armarouge, is easy to use and adaptive, so you do not have to change the stats every now and then.

Counter Attacking Build

To face Cinderace,we will now go through this build. This Fariy-type build will be boosting out most of the Special Attack to give Cinderace a hard time. This bulky offense will focus on your survival. Moreover, the damage will be devastating as well. And you have to make it count.
