Pokémon Presents on August 3rd revealed many new details about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and one of the biggest was a new special Pokémon effect called Terastallizing. Terastallizing will be Scarlet and Violet’s version of previous Gigantimaxing and Mega Evolutions from past games, but Pokemon will have a crystallized look. Terastalization will be possible with all Pokemon in the game, but it can only be used during the battle.
To make a Terastalliz, players will need a charged Tera sphere. It is not yet known when and how players will receive the Tera Orb, but it looks like they can be charged with shining crystals found throughout the region or in Pokemon centers. Players who have made a pre-order for Scarlet and Violet will receive a mysterious gift, also associated with Tera. Tera Orbs can only be used once per battle in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and they give Pokemon special abilities depending on their Tera type.
