Trivia

  • When Glacial Lance is used by Ice Rider Calyrex, the animation is depicted as a spear being thrown at a chunk of ice. When used by other Pokémon, however, it is instead shown as a small beam of ice fired at the ice chunk.[1]
  • Glacial Lance and Astral Barrage are not present in the mobile version of Pokémon HOME's move Pokédex. This is because they would be impossible to register, as the forms of Calyrex that they are the signature moves of cannot be deposited into Pokémon HOME. They share this distinction with Behemoth Blade and Behemoth Bash, which are also the signature moves of forms that cannot be deposited into Pokémon HOME, and Struggle and Light of Ruin, which cannot be legitimately learned. Notably, Ice Burn and Freeze Shock are present in the move Pokédex (despite also being the signature moves of fused Pokémon) due to the fact that Smeargle can learn them with Sketch.
