Game Freak have just announced new dlc content for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield in the form of expansion passes. The new content will primarily be grouped into the Isle of Armor expansion coming in June of 2020, and the Crown Tundra expansion coming in Fall 2020. These expansions will fealer new Galrian forms, returning Pokémon, new Gigantamax forms, new legendary Pokémon, new clothing options and even new Wild Area-like regions to explore. I'll now go through a quick rundown of what has been announced so far. Available Now If you purchase and download the expansion pass now, you gain access to a new scene in the Wedgehurst Station where you meet your new rival from the Isle of Armor expansion, either the Poison-type specialist Klara in Sword or the Psychic-type specialist Avery in Shield. A Galarian Slowpoke will then show up which the player can catch. You will not be able to evolve Galarian Slowpoke until the Isle of Armor is released, however. Isle of Armor The Isle of Armor features a new area that the player can explore similar to the wild area. It also features a new storyline where you train in a dojo under Leon's old master Mustard, against one of the two rivals mentioned in the previous section. You will gain the new Fighting-type Legendary Pokémon Kubfu, which witch can evolve into Urshifu in either Single-Strike Style or Rapid-Strike Style. Other new content includes new clothing and other customization options, new Galarian and Gigantamax forms, and item that can evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowbro, and the ability to customize your bike. Crown Tundra The Crown Tundra features another new area similar to the wild area, which includes explorable underground dens where you can find legendary Pokémon with other players. Less was revealed about the story, but it ooks like it involves researching strange phenomenon occuring in this new area, as well as a new Psychic/Grass-type Legendary Pokémon called Calyrex. There will also be even more customization options, an item that can evolve Galarian Slowpoke into Galarian Slowking, and other new content.
