Glastrier or Spectrier: Which one should you get in Crown Tundra?

Glastrier and Spectrier are two new Legendary Pokemon added in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra DLC. Unfortunately, you can only get one of them (at least in one save file), so which one is better and why?

First off let’s look at their typings. Glastrier is a pure ice-type and Spectrier is pure ghost.

Of course, this is somewhat down to preference but when it comes to weaknesses, there’s only one winner. Glastrier is weak to fire, fighting, rock and steel. It is immune against no types and only resistant to ice attacks.

Meanwhile, Spectrier is only weak to dark and ghost attacks. It is immune to normal and fighting, and resistant to bug and poison. In short, Spectrier’s typing is much more favorable.

Glastrier vs Spectrier stats

There’s more to Pokemon than just typings, though. Each of their base stats are as follows:

Glastrier Spectrier
HP 100 HP 100
Attack 145 Attack 65
Defense 130 Defense 60
Special Attack 65 Special Attack 145
Special Defense 110 Special Defense 80
Speed 30 Speed 130

To simplify these stats, Spectrier will provide you with a fantastic fast and strong ghost-type Pokemon. However, while its special attack is massive, it doesn’t have the moveset to take full advantage of it.

Glastrier’s abysmal speed is a problem. Along with its undesirable pure ice typing many trainers won’t be interested in it, and we understand why.

Outside of those bad points though, the rest of it is very impressive. Along with great defense, it has a far better move pool than Spectrier which is very reliant on Shadow Ball.

If you’re interested in competitive battling then you can’t really go against Spectrier. If you’re playing for fun instead, then Spectrier may be the better option.

How to separate Glastrier/Spectrier from Calyrex

In the Pokemon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra DLC you actually catch Calyrex with either Glastrier or Spectrier together. Respectively, it is Calyrex’s Ice Rider and Shadow Rider fusions forms.

While they do come together, you can separate them to give yourself two Legendaries for the price of one. To do this make sure either of Calyrex’s fusion forms are in your party.

Following that, head over to your inventory and select the Reins of Unity. Give it to the fused Calyrex to separate them. You can rejoin them while they are both in your party by once again selecting the Reins of Unity.

This is a brilliant option to have, although naturally the fusion forms are stronger. Now, you just have to decide which steed you want!

What is code:truck error in Apex Legends & how to fix it? Latest from EA

After Apex Legends received its Holo-Day Bash update, many fans are reporting a brand new code:truck error that’s preventing them from entering the game. Here’s what you need to know about the odd server issue that everyone seems to be getting.

Earlier today, the Holo-Day Bash update went live for Apex Legends, which added in a slew of new content, including some skins and a brand new LTM.

Unbeknownst to players, it seems to have added something else to the game that’s causing a lot of people headaches as they try to log-in.

The Apex community is now reporting a new error code:truck when they attempt to log-in, which is causing some major issues and seems to be caused by the Holo-Day Bash update, although this part is a bit unclear. Here’s what you need to know about the error and if there’s anything that can be done to solve it.

What is the code:truck error in Apex Legends

According to the error messages seen by players, either the game itself or the player is “out of sync with the server.” What that actually means is anyone’s guess.

What we do know about code:truck is that it’s preventing people from logging into the game. It’s affecting a large number of people on all platforms, although the exact extent of this is unclear as of the time of this writing.

Hopefully more information will be available soon.

What can be done to fix the code:truck error?

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a surefire fix for the error. As of 7:10 EST on December 1, 2020, Electronic Arts and Respawn haven’t released a fix for the bug. That being said, they did comment on the error, saying they are looking into the problem.

Beyond that, however, we have no update as to what’s causing this error for some players, how extensive is the problem, and, most importantly, what the fix is for it.

Over on Reddit, some players are reporting on a few different fixes but none of the them are confirmed. One player reported that they were able to workaround the issue by changing the date and time on their PS4 and few others confirmed its success.

Hopefully a fix becomes available in the near future to avoid it spreading to other people, which would result in the amount of players logging into Apex Legends to plummet.
