Does anyone else find Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet infuriating?
I have a level 100 Ceruledge WITH perfect IV, Nature, and EV training...and I still get rocked 9 times out of 10 when fighting Iron Leaves.
You have no control over who you play with.
You cannot seem to influence the battle 90% of the time.
If the other players suck you die.
There seems to be almost no correlation between what happens on screen and what damage is given/taken.
Everything happens out of order in a way that makes it confusing to follow.
And the thing that infuriates me the most is that no matter what you do you're just left hanging for like 75% of the duration of the battle. Like, you're in the middle of picking an attack or cheer or something...and it takes you out for the enemy to set something up. Or it'll just have nothing happen for 30 seconds and not allow you to pick your move, often having these two elements blending so you end up in a position where you were ABOUT to pick a move when, OH NOOOOOO....the enemy interrupted and now just seems to be on internal blue screen for 30 seconds as you're sitting there wondering what the eff's happening or what's going on.
I was in a recent fight where I went to chose my attack, got pulled out of the menu for some stat build or something. Then paused for like 15 seconds, tried again and was IMMEDIATELY pulled back out for another 15 seconds....5 times in a row before I got to actually chose my time and by then the in-battle timer ran out and we all got evicted.
I wouldn't even mind MOST of this garbage trash fire nonsense if there wasn't a timer on the whole ordeal.
but it's honestly the only REAL complaint I have about the game. I don't find the performance issues or glitches to impact my ability to play, but these issues with tera-battles makes me want to never engage with the mechanic at all. IT's poorly made, poorly implemented, grossly unfair, and broken in a way that actually makes it garbage nonsense.
