Peony leads you to research one of the legendary stories of the Crown Tundra DLC of “Pokemon Sword” and “Shield”, which revolves around a new legendary Pokemon named Calyrex. In the past years, Calyrex was worshipped as king by the inhabitants of the Tundra Crown. However, with the passage of time, people’s belief in Pokémon gradually weakened, and its power also weakened. The power to help you restore Calyrex is up to you, and one of the ways to achieve this is to rejoin it with the missing horse. The Crown Tundra spoiler followed.
Soon after encountering Calyrex, the legendary Pokémon will seek your help to find its faithful horse. It turns out that this horse is one of two alternate legendary horse Pokémon: Ice blasting machine or Spectre type Spectreer. Just as you can choose which Urshifu your Kubfu will evolve into in the Armour Armour expansion, the horse Calyrex rides is completely up to you. However, you can only choose one of them, and your choice is permanent, so you need to think carefully before making a decision.
How to choose a horse
After completing the introductory Dynamax Adventure and obtaining Dynite Ore, you will be able to purchase a bag of carrot seeds from a farmer in Freezington, who is located in a small village near Crown Tundra station.These seeds can be used for planting Ice root carrot Or a Shadow root carrot, Which will determine which of the two horses you call.
The type of carrot you grow depends on where the seeds are grown. To produce Iceroot Carrot, you need to plant seeds on the land of Snowslide Slope. At the same time, Shaderoot Carrot was planted by planting seeds in the old cemetery.
After choosing a piece of land and planting seeds, Calyrex will use the little energy left to sprout the carrots. This will lure Glastrier or Spectrier into hiding and allow Pokémon to enter Freezington. Return to the village and defeat it in battle to drive it away.The horse’s mane will leave a strand of hair. You need to weave it with the radiant petals received from Calyrex to forge Rope of unity.
After obtaining the unified obtained rope, Calyrex will inform you that its steed is lurking in the Crown Shrine at the northernmost tip of Crown Tundra. Go to the shrine and put the carrots in the basket to lure Glastrier or Spectrier from hiding. Calyrex will then use the uniform the rope to tame the horse and assume its duties Skater Either Shadow Knight form. Thank you for your help in restoring its functionality, and Calyrex will provide you with the opportunity to seize it.
Which horse should you choose?
The basic statistics of Glastrier and Spectrier are the same, but their statistical distributions are very different. Glastrier is slow, but its offensive and defensive capabilities are high, making it a powerful tank. At the same time, Spectreer has high speed and special attacks, but its defensive ability is low, making it better at quick strikes.
Although Glastrier and Spectrier can be used alone in combat, they can also be combined with Calyrex to form a Pokemon: Ice Rider Calyrex or Shadow Rider Calyrex. This integration has brought Calyrex significant attribute improvements and other benefits. Calyrex becomes the Psychic / Ice type in its Ice Rider form; in the “Shadow Rider” form, it becomes the “Mind/Ghost”. Depending on the horses being ridden, Calyrex’s data will increase accordingly. The ice rider form has higher defensive ability and attack power, but the speed is slower, while the shadow rider form has higher defense ability and low-speed attack power.
In addition to improving statistics, Calyrex can also use some different actions according to the form it adopts. In the form of Ice Rider, it can learn Ice-type attacks, including the signature action Glacial Lance, which is a very powerful physical Ice-type attack. At the same time, the Shadow Knight Calyrex can learn ghostly movements. This type of signature attack is a star barrage, which is a powerful special ghost action that will harm all adjacent opponents.
Ultimately, which method you choose depends on your preferred combat strategy. The low speed and naturally high attack power of Glastrier and Ice Rider Calyrex make them very suitable for the Trick Room team, while Spectrier and Shadow Rider Calyrex are excellent special sweepers, especially if they use nasty conspiracies or calm minds to improve themselves Of the state. However, Calyrex, like some other legendary and mythical Pokémon, is currently not eligible to participate in ranked battles, so you cannot currently use it in ranked online tournaments (either in standard form or in knight form).
Calyrex is not the only legendary Pokemon you will encounter in Crown Tundra; Peony also sends you to explore the legendary giants Regieleki and Regidrago, and the new legendary birds Galarian Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres.
