Pokemon Sword and Shield is getting another expansion later this year, the Crown Tundra DLC. What can we expect to see in this upcoming expansion pass? The Crown Tundra is a snow-filled realm. The scenery is spectacular from what we have seen so far, thanks to the winter experience it provides and the high mountains you get to explore. It is populated with small communities which makes the realm more interesting and mysterious.
As you start in the Crown Tundra, you are appointed as a leader of an exploration team by a man called Peony. You will be in charge of exploring the mysteries of this frozen land and enter into Pokemon Dens, similar to the ones you have seen in the Max Raid Battles.
We expect to see the Crown Tundra released this Fall, and it is believed around the month of November. In this DLC, there are new legendary Pokemon such as Calyrex, the Grass and Psychic Pokemon. There are also old legendaries that will be appearing such as the iconic Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno. Of course, there are other legendaries as well that we will cover in another article.
In the Isle of Armor Expansion Pass, there are some references about the Crown Tundra that you might have missed out on. One example is when Hop arrives to the Isle of Armor as Sonia’s assistant and says that she is exploring an icy tundra, referring to the Crown Tundra. The interesting thing about the Crown Tundra region is that it is inspired by Scotland.
Finally, the Crown Tundra DLC will be priced at $29.99 (which includes the Isle of Armor DLC). We are really excited for this Expansion Pass and ready to explore the mysteries of Crown Tundra. You can watch the trailer for the Pokemon Sword & Sheild: Crown Tundra DLC below.
