Pokemon Sword and Shield is getting a $29.99 / £26.99 Expansion Pass this year, featuring two new adventures - and it’ll bring back more than 200 of the past Pokemon missing from the latest games’ Pokedex.
The Isle of Armor expansion will be available by the end of June, while The Crown Tundra will arrive in fall. You can pre-purchase the Pass today, which will earn you codes for Pikachu and Eevee uniforms to use in-game.
The new expansions include entire new areas - accessible as soon as you reach the gane’s Wild Area - and will introduce brand new Pokemon (with some exclusives depending on your version of the game), new Galarian regional forms and new Legendaries. Both will come with their own Pokedex, new characters, new outfits, and include Pokemon Dens with brand new Max Raid Battles. Players without the Expansion Pass can be invited into these Max Raids by those who do.
