One of the legends you’re tasked with investigating in Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s Crown Tundra DLC revolves around a brand-new Legendary Pokemon named Calyrex. In ages past, Calyrex was worshipped by the denizens of the Crown Tundra as a king. Over time, however, people’s belief in the Pokemon faded, and its powers waned in turn. It falls to you to help restore Calyrex’s power, and one of the ways to do that is by reuniting it with its steed. Crown Tundra spoilers follow.
Shortly after you meet Calyrex, the Legendary Pokemon asks for your help in locating its loyal steed. As it turns out, this steed is one of two alternate Legendary horse Pokemon: the Ice type Glastrier or the Ghost type Spectrier. Much in the way you could choose which Urshifu your Kubfu evolves into in the Isle of Armor expansion, which steed Calyrex rides is entirely up to you. However, you can only choose one of them, and your choice is permanent, so you’ll need to think carefully before you make your decision.
How To Choose A Steed
After you complete the introductory Dynamax Adventure and earn Dynite Ore, you’ll be able to purchase a bag of carrot seeds from the farmer in Freezington, the small village located near the Crown Tundra station. These seeds can be used to grow either an Iceroot Carrot or a Shaderoot Carrot, which in turn will determine which of the two steeds you summon.
