New features added in The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra


New clothing items

There will be over one hundred new clothing items added in The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra. Spice up your adventure by changing your look with your favorite items!

New Pokédexes

Many Pokémon not found in Galar’s Wild Area make their home on the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, the areas that you’ll be able to newly explore. Your Pokédex will be updated so that you can register even more Pokémon as you discover them! In The Isle of Armor, you’ll be aiming to complete the Isle of Armor Pokédex, while in The Crown Tundra, you’ll be working on the Crown Tundra Pokédex!

Max Raid Battles against new Pokémon

There are Pokémon Dens on the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, just like in the Wild Area. Check out a Pokémon Den that has a pillar of light coming out of it, and you’ll be able to participate in a Max Raid Battle! These are battles where you’ll team up with three other Trainers to take on a Dynamax Pokémon.

New designs have been added for League Cards!

Pokémon Trainers in the Galar region make League Cards to introduce themselves. Of course, they are also used on the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, the settings of the Expansion Pass.

As you progress in your adventure in The Isle of Armor (Part 1) and The Crown Tundra (Part 2), backgrounds, effects, and frames that were not available in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be added.

A new way to battle: Restricted Sparring

The Isle of Armor will also introduce a way to challenge yourself to some new battles!

Give it a try, and give some of your Pokémon that are normally overlooked a chance to shine!

New features added in The Crown Tundra

In The Crown Tundra, you and your friends will be able to enter and explore Pokémon Dens found on the Crown Tundra in a new gameplay feature!
