Pokemon Sword and Shield expansions info
The Pokemon Company recently announced that both Sword and Shield will get two expansions, which are all included in the Expansion Passes for only $29.99. These are large expansion that will unlock new areas for players to explore and new Pokemon to capture.
The Isle of Armor details
The first expansion is called The Isle
of Armor and it will launch before the end of June 2020. The second expansion
is called The Crown Tundra and it will be available sometime in Autumn 2020.
The big advantage of making these
expansions is to allow players to play with the same player character and go on
more adventures on these new lands. They can also fight new pocket monsters as
Each expansion will introduce a new open
area to explore, which is the same as the main games’ Wild area. It will also
add 200 new and returning monsters, which made the loyal fans excited. Players
can trade the new monsters to other Sword and Shield owners even if they do not
have the Expansion Pass or not.
The Isle of Armor is a kind of a summer
place to visit. It is always sunny and has an awesome training dojo. A
fighting-type legendary Pokemon called Kubfu will be there that can evolve into
Urshifu. The evolved version is another legendary Pokemon that has two
different forms. Each of them has the Gigantamax feature.
The three starter Pokemon’s final
evolutions, Venusaur, and Blastoise are also capable of the Gigantamax ability.
The expansion will add the Galarian
Slowpoke. It can evolve into either Galarian Slowking and Slowbro, which will
depend on the title the players own.
The Crown Tundra info
The Crown Tundra, the second expansion, has a snowy area and will introduce a new co-op play. Pokemon dens will be featured, which looks like dungeons, but players can capture new and past legendary Pokemon that were featured throughout the whole series. The new legendary Pokemon to capture in this expansion is Calyrex, a psychic and grass type monster.
The two full games are now available on Nintendo Switch.
