Why separate Calyrex from Glastrier or Spectrier in Pokemon Sword and Shield?
You cannot use the merged version of Calyrex in battles, which is one of the biggest reasons why it’s better to separate it from Glastrier or Spectrier. Although Calyrex is stronger when merged, you can still make the most of its Psychic powers.
Separation also allows trading Calyrex, Glastrier, and Spectrier individually. Here’s some information about them:
- Calyrex (separated) – Psychic-type
- Calyrex (with Glastrier) – Ice and Psychic-type
- Calyrex (with Spectrier) – Ghost and Psychic-type
- Glastrier – Ice-type
- Spectrier – Ghost-type
All in all, Calyrex is a great addition to your collection and you won’t regret its presence in any form. Moreover, the Reins of Unity makes it really easy to separate and combine it with Spectrier or Glastrier.
