If you haven’t battled in the 7-Star tera raids, this is what is going to take you the most time. To unlock access you need to have finished the core story of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, which shouldn’t be an issue at this point. You’ll be asked to go around and battle all the gyms again, then participate in the Ace Tournament. All of that shouldn’t give you too much difficulty, so all that’s left is to participate in ten tera raids of 4 and 5-star difficulty.

When you’ve participated in enough of them, you should see 7-star tera raids start to pop up on your map but only when you are connected online.
