Choosing to do each raid, either from the Poké Portal or by interacting with the Crystal in the Overworld, players can choose to group up or go solo. Even when facing these raids alone, players will be paired up with random NPCs with random Pokémon. While the lack of coordination makes it more difficult, this is how players can solo Tera Raids on Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
