The Pokemon Company has officially revealed the final two new Pokemon that were introduced in the Crown Tundra DLC for Pokemon Sword And Shield.
The two new Pokemon are Glastrier and Spectrier, a pair of horse Pokemon that serve as Calyrex’s loyal steed. By using an item called the Reigns Of Unity, Calyrex can combine with either one of the two Pokemon to unlock greater power.
Check out a new trailer below, along with official artwork and details about their abilities as seen on the official Crown Tundra website:
Wild Horse Pokémon
Chilling Neigh ~ a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. When a Pokémon with this Ability knocks out a target, its Attack stat is boosted.
A face and hooves clad in ice
This Pokémon generates intense cold air within its body and emits that cold from its nose and hooves. This cold air covers Glastrier’s face and legs in unyielding ice, giving its attacks extraordinary destructive power. Nimble movements are not Glastrier’s strong suit. But it can use the cold exuded from its hooves to freeze the ground, letting it shoot off sliding across the ice to close distances in a flash during battle.
A ruffian plowing through snowy lands
Glastrier’s might and stamina let it charge through the snowiest of lands and the worst of roads on its thick, burly legs. It’s also belligerent and proud and takes anything it wants by force. It apparently can’t help challenging any strong opponent it sees to battle.
Ice Rider Calyrex
High King Pokémon
As One ~ a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. This Ability combines the effects of both Calyrex’s Unnerve Ability and Glastrier’s Chilling Neigh Ability.
Signature move: Glacial Lance!
In this powerful Ice-type physical move, the Pokémon attacks by hurling a blizzard-cloaked icicle lance at opposing Pokémon. In Double Battles, this move can damage two opposing Pokémon on the battlefield
Psychic power and cold awaken each other
Glastrier’s powers are heightened by Calyrex’s psychic energy. The cold Glastrier emits can reach five hundred degrees below zero. It also has the endurance to run for seven days and nights on end, no matter how rough the road, by instantly freezing and smashing through any obstacles in its path.
Moreover, Glastrier’s intense cold has brought out the full potential of Calyrex’s psychic powers as well. This lets Calyrex manifest its powers over a radius of more than 30 miles.
Ultrapowerful icicle lances that pierce mountains
Calyrex can use its psychic energy to condense the cold emitted by Glastrier into gigantic icicles. It can fire these icicles at opponents like arrows or wield them like lances for charging attacks. These psychically strengthened icicle lances appear powerful enough to blow holes in rocky mountains and pass through them completely.
Swift Horse Pokémon
Grim Neigh ~ a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. When a Pokémon with this Ability knocks out a target, its Sp. Atk stat is boosted.
Senses sharpened with spectral power
This Pokémon craves silence and solitude and tends to be active at night when its energy is heightened. Its nocturnal habits have left its eyesight weak. But Spectrier’s other four senses are keenly sharpened, and they give it an accurate sense of the terrain and the locations of living things.
A dispassionate Pokémon that tolerates no trespassers
Spectrier takes in nourishment by absorbing ambient life-force emitted by other creatures. It has sharp hearing and a love for peace and solitude, so it avoids any involvement with other living creatures. However, Spectrier will attack any trespasser that disturbs its tranquil territory in an effort to drive the intruder off.
Shadow Rider Calyrex
High King Pokémon
As One ~ a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. This Ability combines the effects of both Calyrex’s Unnerve Ability and Spectrier’s Grim Neigh Ability.
Signature move: Astral Barrage!
In this powerful Ghost-type special move, the user attacks by sending a frightful amount of small ghosts at opposing Pokémon. In Double Battles, this move can damage two opposing Pokémon on the battlefield.
Running thousands of miles with swift strides and spectral power
Spectrier’s skills have been heightened by Calyrex’s psychic energy. It is swift enough to run thousands of miles in a single day, and its spectral powers have gained strength.
Moreover, Spectrier’s unearthly might has unlocked the full potential of Calyrex’s psychic power. This lets Calyrex see all events from past to future. The regal Pokémon can manifest this power over a radius of more than 30 miles.
A powerful spectral aura that steals opponents’ life-force
Calyrex can pour its psychic power into Spectrier in order to create countless small will-o’-the-wisps and rain them down on opponents like a meteor shower. It appears anything touched by one of these wisps can have its life-force stolen while also being scorched with burning heat. Moreover, Calyrex can condense Spectrier’s spectral aura into a large, black, mist-like mass. This mass is imbued with the power to absorb life-force, and it sucks in the souls of nearby living things like a black hole.
