In the recent Nintendo Direct Mini stream, game company Nintendo announced some details on the upcoming expansion of video game Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion 1
The first part of the Expansion Pass
details was revealed in a Nintendo Direct Mini held recently. The Isle of Armor
will be the first new area to be added to the Galar region. This is a big area
where new Pokemon will be appearing not seen in other areas in the main game.
In this new area, players can gather at
a new dojo for Pokemon Battles to master their skills. Master Mustard will be
at this dojo and by training here he can hand out the Legendary Pokemon Kubfu.
Training with Kubfu will allow players
to challenge the Tower of Two Fists on the Isle of Armor. Kubfu will evolve
into Urshifu after completing one of the two towers.
Urshifu has two forms in this game,
which are the Single Strike Style and Rapid Strike Style. Each form will have
different types as well. These forms will also have Gigantamax forms.
With the new expansion, players can
train their Pokemon to gain the ability to Gigantamax. These Pokemon include
Rillaboom, Cinderace, and Inteleon
New outfits and hairstyles will be added
with this new expansion. More league card backgrounds, effects, and frames are
included as well.
The second expansion, The Crown of
Tundra, will get more details at a later date.
The expansion pass can be pre-ordered with a price tag of $29.99.
