A Legend in the Flesh

Crown Tundra Story - King of Bountiful Harvests


Interact with the Wooden Crown on the table and take it outside to the statue.
You will see Calyrex. Follow it into the small clearing ahead of you.
Interacting with Calyrex will begin a battle with it. Defeat it in battle as you can’t catch it at this time.
After winning, Calyrex will task you with speaking to the villagers of Freezington, so talk to all the non-shop villagers outside.
Report back to after speaking to everyone and Calyrex will ask you to find clues on his Steed. You need to speak with the Mayor, so go to his house.
When you approach the Mayor's home you’ll be told he's in Giant’s Bed to the southeast of the village, so head there.

In Search of a Steed

Crown Tundra Story - In Search of a Steed


You will find the Mayor to the east near some ruins.
Return to Freezington and speak with the Mayor again at his home.
Interact with the Mayor's bookcase and read up Hardy Crops for the Tundra to learn the food Calyrex's steed enjoyed: Carrots!
Return to Calyrex at the village outskirts.
If you haven't already, purchase a bag of Carrot Seeds from the old man next to the vegetable patch for 8 Dynite Ore.
Go back to Calyrex and he will show you two spots where you can grow the Carrot Seeds.
You have two choices of where to grow the Carrots:
Snowslide Slope for the Ice-type, or
Old Cemetery for the Ghost-type.
The plot you choose decides which of Calyrex's steeds will appear and you can only do this once.
Which Legendary Steed Should You Pick?
Once you've decided, go to either plot and plant the seeds. Pull the Iceroot or Shaderoot Carrot out of the ground and your horse of choice will appear.
Return to Freezington to face off with the Legendary Steed. It cannot be caught now, so defeat it in battle and save the village.

The Legendary Horse you get depends on the carrot

You're only able to obtain one of the Legendary Horse Pokemon per save file, so be sure to consider which you want carefully before planting the carrot. Once you've planted it, you won't be able to go back, so choose wisely!

Glastrier or Spectrier?

The Reins of Unity

After the Legendary Steed runs away you will receive a tuft of their mane used to create the Reins of Unity for Calyrex. Return to Calyrex for your next task.
With the Radiant Petal in hand, speak with the mayor about making a set of Reins of Unity.
Peony will arrive to save the day and you will receive the Reins of Unity.
Speak with Calyrex once again for your next destination: the Crown Shrine.

Calyrex's Test

Catch Calyrex.png

The Crown Shrine is far to the north above Snowslide Slope and through Tunnel to the Top.
Pass through Path to the Peak and head inside the Crown Shrine where Calyrex awaits you.
Place the Carrot in the basket to your left and wait for the Legendary Steed to appear.
Once the scene ends, make your preperations as you will now have the chance to catch Calyrex in its full powered form.
Tip: If you happen to knock Calyrex out, you can keep trying until you succeed in catching it.
Return to Freezington and report to Peony about the legend of the King of Bountiful Harvests to close out this part of the story.

Catch Ice Rider or Shadow Rider Calyrex

In the battle, you'll fight Calyrex in either the Ice Rider or Shadow Rider form depending on the Legendary Horse you chose. You'll be able to battle it again even if you KO Calyrex, so feel free to take as many tries as you need.

Note: Calyrex can use Giga Drain, restoring its health even if you wear it down to 1 HP with False Swipe. Be cautious with the Pokemon you send out to prevent it from healing itself out of the red with Giga Drain.

How to Separate Calyrex and Glastrier or Spectrier

You'll catch Calyrex in the Ice Rider or Shadow Rider form, meaning that Glastrier or Spectrier will be obtained simultaneously. Simply use the Reins of Unity on Calyrex with an extra space in your party, and you'll have two separate Pokemon caught with a single Poke Ball!

Synchronize cannot be used on Calyrex

It's not possible to get the Nature of your choice for Calyrex using the Synchronize Ability. Using Mints is the best way to get a Calyrex and Legendary Horse with your preferred nature.

Report Back to Peony

Once you've caught Calyrex and the Legendary Horse of your choice, report back to Peony in Freezington to wrap up this chapter of the story.
