New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on December 02, 2022) follows:

The newest chapters in the series, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are here and they allow players to freely explore in an open world.

It also recently announced Tera Raid Battle events allowing players to take on specific Pokemon or encounter Pokemon with certain Tera Types.

However, it seems that players are unhappy with the Unrivaled Charizard’s random adjustment of health during the raids.

This has prompted several players (1,2,3,4) to report the issue where Charizard’s health jumps back and forth in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.


Charizard’s health constantly goes up, Even offline. What is happening here? I have lost 5 times now because of this.

@NintendoAmerica fix this team had his Charizard’s health down to zero THREE times in a single raid and still lost!

Reports suggest that Charizard’s health is not static as it randomly keeps regaining or losing it. There are also some cases where he suddenly regains health even after getting hit a number of times.

The abruptness at which Chraizard’s health bar keeps filling or emptying is making it nearly impossible for players to win these Tera raids events.

Even one of the best Tera Raid builds, Azumarill stands ineffective when it comes to taking Charizard down.

Potential workaround

Fortunately, we have come across a workaround that can help fix the issue with the broken Charizard Tera Raid health.


So far, there’s been no official acknowledgment from the team yet. So those affected can try to prevent Charizard killing from the Play Rough move.

We’ll keep tabs on the issue where the Charizard Tera Raid health is broken and update this article as and when something noteworthy comes up.

Update 1 (December 5, 2022)

12:34 pm (IST): Some players suggest that the issue is also affecting other Pokemon besides Charizard:

Have this issue with Iron Hands and Gholdengo as well, can verify.
Although I think it’s worse with Charizard because he has such a massive amount of health.
