Pokémon fans once again are coming together for the next expansion pass, the Crown Tundra. Pokémon Direct with Company President, Tsunekazu Ishihara, announced the exciting news. The expansion pass for the Crown Tundra will be releasing October 22nd of this year. Get your Switch ready, because this expansion has a lot of exciting additions to the core game of Sword and Shield.
What’s Coming to the Pokémon Expansion Pass?
The Pokémon direct showed us a sneak peek into the story gameplay you will be having in the new expansion pass. This includes exploring the beautiful landscape of the Crown Tundra, adventuring into never before seen raid dens, and an upcoming league tournament. The Crown Tundra is filled with beautiful locations, themed around exploration. You will have plenty to explore as more pokémon become added to the game. Not only that, but the Pokémon Company has announced the addition of ALL the legendaries from core Pokémon games that will be available to catch. These will appear in the new exploration raid dens. Unlike previous raid battles, you will face multiple gigantimax pokémon before arriving at the end. In the end, you will have a chance to encounter one of the legendaries below (Version Exclusives Apply.)
Are you excited about the upcoming expansion pass? Hopefully, you’ll be out their Catching All the Pokémon. Not only that, but I have a release code that you can use in your game right now! This release code allows you to get a special Pikachu wearing an adorable hat worn throughout the Pokémon Animated Series. As we get closer to the release date, the Pokémon Company will release more codes for even more Pikachu’s.
I hope you are excited to explore the Crown Tundra. I know I will be there battling my way through dens, and hopefully catching even more legendaries. If you need a friend to adventure with you on your journey and takedown raid dens, comment your friend code below. Together we can take on anything!
