New information on the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass will be revealed this Tuesday, June 2.
An extensive Pokémon Sword and Shield post-release content plan was revealed in January.
[UPDATE: Pokémon Sword and Shield’s The Isle of Armor will release on June 17, The Pokémon Company has announced.]
The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra expansions will launch in June 2020 and fall 2020 respectively.
They’ll be released individually and as part of a $29.99 / £26.99 expansion pass, with each adding new environments, new (and old) Pokémon and fresh player customisation options.
The expansions will include the addition of more than 200 legacy Pokémon. Players who don’t purchase the DLC will be able to obtain these via other means such as trading.
“Players will also be able to bring over Pokémon to their games from the cloud service Pokémon Home as long as the Pokémon appear in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield expansion packs,” said Junichi Masuda, producer of Sword and Shield at Game Freak, in a Nintendo Pokémon Direct video.
