We’ve begun distribution of an update for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield players that will allow you to experience a small slice of the Expansion Pass’s new content! Once you’ve received the update, head to Wedgehurst Station. There, you’ll meet a Trainer who will appear in the Expansion Pass content. In Pokémon Sword, you’ll encounter Klara, while in Pokémon Shield, you’ll run into Avery. It’s a little taste of the story awaiting you in The Isle of Armor! You can even add a Galarian Slowpoke to your team!

Take note, because it doesn’t matter whether you’ve purchased the Expansion Pass or not—anyone who’s playing Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield will be able to experience the beginning of the Expansion Pass’s story, so go check out Wedgehurst Station!

Note: To enjoy the above feature, you’ll need to connect to the internet at least once. Head to Wedgehurst Station once you’ve updated Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield to the latest version.

Special purchase bonus

If you purchase the Expansion Pass, you’ll be able to receive a Pikachu Uniform and an Eevee Uniform as a special purchase bonus. You’ll be able to wear these outfits in the expansions, of course, but also in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield! Until The Isle of Armor’s release, it might not be a bad idea to complete your adventures in the Galar region decked out in your new outfit!
