Is Glacial Lance good?
In our opinion, Glacial Lance is a great move. We hate that it’s only limited to Ice Rider Calyrex as of Generation 8. The base 130 power combined with the STAB damage boost of being an Ice-type, means Ice Rider Calyrex is going to do a lot of damage. Because it has no special effects like Freeze or Flinching, this move lets Calyrex focus on doing lots of damage.
Due to Ice Rider Calyrex’s ridiculously high Attack stat, it’s going to deal lots of damage to opponents that are weak to Ice-type moves. We recommend keeping Glacial Lance on your Ice Rider Calyrex.
