Out of nowhere, the Pokemon Company have announced a brand new mobile game. Pokemon Rumble Rush is reportedly available now on mobile devices.

The announcement of this brand new Pokemon game might well have blindsided many Pokemon fans. There was no tease, trailer, or any mention whatsoever about the new game.

Instead, the game was announced out of the blue and is already available to download – at least, at the time of writing, in some regions.

Rumble Rush is a mobile version of the downloadable Pokemon Rumble game that first appeared on the Nintendo Wii. Subsequent releases appeared on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

Pokemon Rumble Rush is separate from the new mobile game that is being developed by DeNA. This currently unannounced mobile game will be released before March 2020.

What is Pokemon Rumble Rush?

Pokemon Rumble Rush is a free-to-play smartphone game. The game itself, as the Pokemon Company describe allows you to, “Travel to unknown islands, battle wild Pokémon, and discover valuable items in this rollicking mobile expedition.”

The game appears to differ from traditional Pokemon games found on Nintendo devices whereby Rumble Rush if focused on fast-paced simple gameplay. Moreover, the game is centered around action as opposed to a story.

Hardcore Pokemon fans will remember the announcement of a previous Pokemon game for mobile – Pokeland. This game went into beta testing in late 2017 but disappeared altogether shortly after.

The Pokeland website remained untouched thereafter but has since been updated. While nothing was announced about the official status of the game, many assumed it had been shelved entirely.

However, it now appears that Pokemon Rumble Rush is a re-brand of Pokeland.

Rumble Rush APK

Pokemon Rumble Rush can be downloaded on either the iOS store or Google Play.

As of the time of writing, the game is currently available in Australia, but is expected to be rolled out worldwide in the next few hours. 

For those who can’t wait those extra hours, you can either change your Google Play settings or find an APK of the file to download online. One Pokemon Rumble Rush APK has been provided in the Tweet above.

How to get Calyrex and Glastrier/Spectrier in the Crown Tundra DLC

Pokemon Sword and Shield’s the Crown Tundra DLC is finally available which means trainers can get their hands on the region’s featured Legendary Pokemon, Calyrex.

Calyrex ruled all of Galar throughout ancient times, so it’s safe to say the King Pokemon will be a fantastic addition to your Pokedex. It may not appear strong at just 1.1 meters tall and 7.7kg in weight but it is highly intelligent.

In fact, it is so clever that it’s said to see every past, present, and future event. Let’s break down how to encounter Calyrex in the Crown Tundra.

Calyrex is the featured Legendary Pokemon of the new Crown Tundra DLC…

Calyrex location

Finding The King Pokemon is a several step process. Firstly, you’ll need to get to the point of the Crown Tundra story where you obtain the Legendary Clues in Peony’s house. This is located in Freezington.

From there pick up the Wooden Crown which can be found in his living room. By sheer coincidence (or not), there is a statue just outside where the aforementioned Crown fits like a glove. This is a statue of Calyrex (without its crown) sitting on what is either Glastrier or Spectrier. Put the crown on this statue.

This will cause Calyrex to appear which will result in a battle. The dual grass and psychic-type is relatively easy to defeat.

Following this, it will want you to interact with various NPCs in Freezington to find out whether members of the community remember it for its plentiful harvest.

Calyrex will share more about its history telling you about its loyal steed – Glastrier or Spectrier (more on that below). As part of the story, you’re required to buy some Carrot Seeds.

Again, coincidentally, a NPC is selling them right by the previous NPCs. This will cost 8 Dynite Ore.

To have this amount you will have needed to have successfully won your first Dynamax Adventure. If you haven’t, you’ll need to go back and do so.

Calyrex will then want you to choose between two locations to grow the carrots. One of them is a plot of land by gravestones and the other is in a field of “pristine snow”.

Glastrier and Spectrier

This is where the other Legendary Pokemon from the Crown Tundra come into play. Spectrier and Glastrier are Horse Pokemon with different typings.

The former is a ghost-type while the latter is ice. Therefore, it will come as no surprise Calyrex summons Spectrier when you plant the Carrot Seeds by the gravestones and Glastrier when planted by the pristine snow.

Whichever one you choose will result in you battling it back in Freezington. When you defeat it, you will obtain a tuft of Mane Hair.

This will then be used to construct the Reins of Unity. To do that you’ll need to talk to Calyrex (again) – at this point, you’re getting to know each other well – and it will give you the Radiant Petal. Take both of these to the Mayor’s House and Peony will give you the Reins of Unity.

Now you can make your way to the Crown Shrine which is located at the top of the Crown Tundra. Calyrex will be waiting for you.

Place the Carrot in the Shrine and either Spectrier or Glastrier will come for it. Calyrex will take this opportunity to jump on it. After seemingly taming it, the two fuse together to create the Shadow Rider or Ice Rider fusion forms.

Reins of Unity

Now Calyrex’s fusion form is waiting for you to battle it (and capture). Although you can battle it as many times as you want, it’s probably wise to save it beforehand to avoid having to get all the way back up to the Crown Shrine.

It can be difficult to capture, so make sure you have a relatively strong team and a lot of PokeBalls. Unfortunately, Calyrex is one of the few Pokemon that are Shiny locked in the Crown Tundra, so don’t waste your time soft resetting, a Shiny isn’t going to happen!

When you do capture Calyrex’s in its Shadow or Ice Rider form, you can actually use the Reins of Unity to separate the two Pokemon. This results in two Pokedex entries!

For those asking whether you can catch both Glastrier and Spectrier, no you can’t, at least not on the same save file. The process of capturing Calyrex sounds long-winded, but it’s actually pretty simple and is naturally achieved by going through the story.
