Pokemon Sword + Expansion Pass and Pokemon Shield + Expansion Pass Bundles Now Available

Game companies Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have announced that the all-in-one physical versions of the Pokemon Sword + Pokemon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokemon Shield + Pokemon Shield Expansion Pass bundles are now available at participating retailers.

For fans who have not yet started an adventure in the Galar region, these bundles will include the same game content players would receive by purchasing both titles (physical or digital) and the corresponding Expansion Pass separately. They are all preloaded on a single game card.

Trainers who will get the new bundles will receive one hundred Poke Balls as an in-game special purchase bonus, as well as codes for the Pikachu Uniform and Eevee Uniform that were previously offered as special purchase bonuses for buying the base game and corresponding Expansion Pass separately.

Players can also now discover new Legendary Pokémon within The Crown Tundra, as well as uncover the story behind the Legendary Pokémon Calyrex. Stories tell of a ruffian Pokémon that once reigned like a lord over the other Pokémon of the Crown Tundra. Time and again, it would grow enraged with humans who intruded on its territory, and it would hurt those humans and their Pokémon. But then the Legendary Pokémon Calyrex appeared and defeated the ruffian, which eventually bonded with the regal Pokémon and became its loyal steed.
 
Newly Discovered Legendary Pokémon
Glastrier
Category: Wild Horse Pokémon
Height: 7’3″
Weight: 1,763.7 lbs.
Type: Ice
Ability: Chilling Neigh
 
Glastrier generates intense cold air within its body and emits that cold from its nose and hooves. This cold air covers its face and legs in unyielding ice, giving its attacks extraordinary destructive power. Nimble movements are not Glastrier’s strong suit, but it can use the cold exuded from its hooves to freeze the ground, letting it shoot off sliding across the ice to close distances in a flash during battle. Glastrier’s Ability, Chilling Neigh, is a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. When a Pokémon with this Ability knocks out a target, its Attack stat is boosted.
 
Spectrier
Category: Swift Horse Pokémon
Height: 6’7″
Weight: 98.1 lbs.
Type: Ghost
Ability: Grim Neigh
 
This Pokémon craves silence and solitude and tends to be active at night when its energy is heightened. Its nocturnal habits have left its eyesight weak, but Spectrier’s other four senses are keenly sharpened, and they give it an accurate sense of the terrain and the locations of living things. Spectrier’s Ability, Grim Neigh, is a new Ability introduced with the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass. When a Pokémon with this Ability knocks out a target, its Sp. Atk stat is boosted.
 
Ice Rider Calyrex
Category: High King Pokémon
Height: 7’10”
Weight: 1,783.8 lbs.
Type: Psychic/Ice
Ability: As One
 
Glastrier’s powers are heightened by Calyrex’s psychic energy. The cold Glastrier emits can reach five hundred degrees below zero. It also has the endurance to run for seven days and nights on end, no matter how rough the road, by instantly freezing and smashing through any obstacles in its path. Glastrier’s intense cold has brought out the full potential of Calyrex’s psychic powers as well. This lets Calyrex manifest its powers over a radius of more than 30 miles.
 
Shadow Rider Calyrex
Category: High King Pokémon
Height: 7’10”
Weight: 118.2 lbs.
Type: Psychic/Ghost
Ability: As One
 
Spectrier’s skills have been heightened by Calyrex’s psychic energy. It is swift enough to run thousands of miles in a single day, and its spectral powers have gained strength. Moreover, Spectrier’s unearthly might has unlocked the full potential of Calyrex’s psychic power. This lets Calyrex see all events from past to future. The regal Pokémon can manifest this power over a radius of more than 30 miles.
