How to Beat the 7-Star Meganium Tera Raid: The Best Counters in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

The next 7-star Tera Raid boss in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is Meganium with the Psychic Tera type. To help you meet this challenge, here are the best Meganium counters in the game.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have announced that their next 7-star Tera Raid will feature Meganium. The final evolved form of the Gen 2 starter, Chikorita, was added to the game as part of last year’s The Indigo Disk DLC, and players will soon be able to take on this fearsome foe.

Meganium is the latest starter to receive the 7-star Tera Raid treatment and the Herb Pokémon Raid comes about a month after those featuring the original Kanto starters.

This Meganium will have the Psychic Tera type, making it a different challenge than the typical Grass-type mono Meganium. While we won’t have details until the Raid goes live later this month, here are some builds you can start working on now to help you prepare for this Pokémon Scarlet and Violet event.
