The DLC will also be available as part of a physical game bundle containing the main game and its first two expansions on November 6.
With The Crown Tundra, players will be able to encounter every Legendary Pokemon that’s appeared in the main series of Pokémon games, TPC said in a video published on Tuesday.
Players will be able to find Legendary Pokemon during their travels in the Crown Tundra or while in new Dynamax Adventures, with some variants appearing in either Sword or Shield.
Dynamax Adventures see players teaming up with three other Trainers to explore a Pokemon Den where Dynamax Pokemon lurk. Instead of their regular Pokemon team, players will choose rental Pokemon to bring along.
If you encounter a wild Dynamax Pokemon during your exploration, you’ll need to work together with your three teammates in a Max Raid Battle.
If you win the battle, you’ll have the chance to catch the Pokemon, and one Trainer on the team can swap the newly caught Pokemon in for the Pokemon they had before.
Once players progress far enough in The Crown Tundra, they’ll be able to participate in the Galarian Star Tournament, a tournament that has players picking a partner from among the many Trainers they’ve met throughout Sword or Shield.
Sword and Shield’s first expansion, Isle of Armor, was released in June individually and as part of a $29.99/£26.99 expansion pass, which also grants access to The Crown Tundra.
Together the two expansions add more than 200 legacy Pokémon to the game. Players who don’t purchase the DLC will be able to obtain these via other means such as trading.
Sword and Shield fans have uncovered a list of the likely returning Pokémon for the Crown Tundra DLC.
