If you’ve been wondering how to get Iron Leaves in Pokemon Violet, wonder no more – I’m about to guide you through the process one step at a time.
Iron Leaves is a new Paradox Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Violet, so if you’re a Pokemon Scarlet player, stop what you’re doing and head over to my how to get Walking Wake in Pokemon Scarlet because Iron Leaves isn’t available to you!
To get your very own Iron Leaves, you need to participate in a 5-Star Tera Raid Battle Event that takes place from February 27th until March 12th.
Those are the basic details you need, but if you want to be as prepared as humanly possible, I advise you to stick with me until the end…
How To Get Iron Leaves In Pokemon Violet
To catch Iron Leaves, you need to visit the Poke Portal Menu to sync with the Tera Raid Battle Search. Now you’re online, the option to join the Iron Leaves Raid will appear.
Before we get into battle specifics, please remember that you need a Nintendo Switch Online account to take part in this event.
Most of us are well versed in Tera Raids by now, so we know the score and how these battles go down. However, with a Tera Event, there’s a few key elements to be mindful of.
Firstly, you need to have finished the main story in Pokemon Violet to take part in 5-Star Tera Raids. I assume this won’t be an issue for most of you, but if you’ve yet to face down Professor Turo, now is the time to learn how to reach Area Zero in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
Secondly, Iron Leaves is a high level Grass/Psychic Type, so you need to plan accordingly – I’d advise using a Fire or Ghost Type, like Flareon or Houndstone.
Thirdly, know the moves your opponent will use during battle. Iron Leaves can use:
- Leaf Blade
- Swords Dance
- Electric Terrain.
As with Walking Wake, you can only capture one Iron Leaves per game.
That’s all you need to know, so go and enjoy immersing yourself in the wonders of Paldea once more (if you ever left). Oh, and don’t forget to read all about the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC revealed, titled “The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero” – this DLC looks so so good.
