Pokémon Shine and Glimmer Like Gems Thanks to the Terastal Phenomenon
This phenomenon is found only in the Paldea region and makes Pokémon shine and glimmer like gems. When a Pokémon Terastallizes, a Tera Jewel appears above the Pokémon’s head like a crown, and the Pokémon’s body glistens like a cut gemstone.
It’s said that the Terastal energy that seeps from the ground of the Paldea region is involved in the phenomenon.
Many details remain unclear, but Professor Sada and Professor Turo are researching this mystery.
The Tera Jewel and the luster on the Pokémon’s body differ depending on the type.
All Pokémon that call the Paldea region home can Terastallize.
You can Terastallize a Pokémon once per battle, and the transformation will last until the battle ends.

Fight alongside friends within the time limit in Tera Raid Battles
Tera Raid Battles are a completely new battle format where you will team up with three other Trainers in order to take on a Terastallized wild Pokémon within a time limit. In Tera Raid Battles, you can attack without waiting for other Trainers’ turns, so it’s important that you cooperate with your fellow Trainers at a quick pace.
Managing to defeat the Tera Pokémon within the time limit will undo the Pokémon’s transformation, giving you the chance to try to catch it by throwing Poké Balls. Victories can reward you with many useful items too!
Tell Your Pokémon to Go Adventure!
You can have one Pokémon out and walking with you in the Paldea region’s great outdoors. When you have a Pokémon exploring with you in the field, you can use the “Let’s Go!” feature to send that Pokémon off in the direction you indicate. The Pokémon you send out then independently picks up items in the area and even has Auto Battles with nearby Pokémon.
Your Pokémon can be sent into an Auto Battle against any wild Pokémon you see on the field, and it can even find Pokémon to engage in Auto Battles on its own.

When your Pokémon is out and engaging in Auto Battles, you can do what you want—stay by its side to watch over it, or try looking for items nearby. By defeating wild Pokémon in Auto Battles, your Pokémon can earn items and Exp. Points!
