This Pokemon Sword and Shield Calyrex Locations guide include all the information about Calyrex, including its Base Stats, How to Catch, Location, Abilities, and Evolution for Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Calyrex

To find Calyrex you will have to go to Crown Tundra. However, by following the game’s storyline, you have to get the legendary clues at Peony’s house in Freezington.

Look for the Wooden Crown in his living room, which would later be used on a statue of Calyrex that lacks his crown.

On either Glastrier or Spectrier, it will sit. After you placed the crown on the statue, Calyrex will surface.

How to Catch Calyrex

After discovering Calyrex via the tale shortly after beginning your adventure in the Crown Tundra, you will not be able to catch it. As part of the story, you will simply have to beat it.

You’ll be charged with locating Calyrex, with the aid of Peony. In a vulnerable state, it will finally reveal itself to you, calling for your support.

It would also disclose that there is another aspect of the Pokemon we didn’t see, a steed that the Pokemon is mounted upon.

You’ll finally be charged with exchanging some Dynite Ore for carrot seeds, which you get from doing Dynamax Adventures. Calyrex can have two types, based on where you plant the seeds.

Planting the seeds in the Old Cemetery would make it ghost-type and planting the seeds in the Snowslide Slope would make it ice-type. You can only choose one kind, and without trading, you will not be able to get the other.

You’ll be able to travel north to catch it at the Crown Shrine after Calyrex reunites with its steed.
