Calyrex’s Challenge

At the end of Calyrex’s quest, you’ll have the opportunity to come here and catch Calyrex, together with Glastrier or Spectrier. Otherwise, there’s not a lot to see here.

Items

A potent move famously used by Mewtwo. Although it’s not as scary nowadays, it’s still a staple for a lot of Psychic-types.

Item Location
TR11 Psychic Turn right before going up the stairs to the shrine. At the back of the area of raised land.
Max Revive Turn left after going up the stairs. This item’s sitting in the snow by the mountain wall.
King’s Rock Inside the shrine building, check behind the second tree on the left. The fixed camera can make it difficult to notice at first.

These appear as sparkling spots all over the place, usually near trees, rocks and other objects. Please note that the hidden item you obtain may be different to what’s listed, as some items are randomised. Also, hidden items will respawn each day.
