We’ve mined the Isle of Armour for all it’s worth in Pokémon Sword And Shield, now it’s on to the Crown Tundra. The second half of Sword and Shield’s expansion pass arrives on October 22, giving players the opportunity to explore a mysterious frozen land, with the chance to capture every legendary Pokémon that’s appeared in the main series since it began.

Along with new adventures, new Pokémon, and a den filled with massive legendaries, the Crown Tundra expansion will also allow players to team up with famous trainers from the Galar region in the Galatian Star Tournament. Check out the full video presentation below. Watch to the very end, there’s a musical number.

If you’ve not gotten the game and its expansion pass yet, good news: Nintendo is releasing a bundled version of either Pokémon Sword or Shield with the expansion pass included on November 6. Consider it your reward for waiting.


  • Oh my god I can’t believe Dragonite is coming back to be in The Crown Tundra DLC along with legendary Ice Pokemon Suicune along with Ash’s Pikachu wearing 8 different trainer caps the first one the original trainer’s cap is available right now just by putting in the password P1KACHGET under Mystery Gifts in Pokemon Sword and Shield and there will be more Ash’s Pikachu passwords to be revealed in the coming days that’s even better and The Crown Tundra DLC comes out October 22 so that’s later next month.
    Look out Suicune Lugia Ho-Oh and Dragonite I’m coming for you and most of all I am ready for my next Galarian adventure The Crown Tundra after completing Isle of Armor.
