Although the Expansion Pass is currently available for sale, its inclusions, The Isle of Armor expansion and The Crown Tundra expansion will not be available for play until they are released in updates in June and in the Fall this year. However, by buying the Expansion Pass in advance, players can ensure they receive the updates as soon as they are released.
It's known that the locations of both expansions will completely consist of Wild Areas, and that they will be even larger than the Wild Area in the original games.
The Crown Tundra expansion, with its theme of Exploration, will dive even deeper into this aspect, and allow players to team up and explore more deeply into Pokemon Dens.
Brand-new Legendary Pokemon, as well as new Gigantamax forms, and even returning Pokemon which were previously unavailable in Pokemon Sword and Shield will be featured in The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra expansions.
The Isle of Armor expansion focuses on the theme of Growth, so it's safe to assume that new Gigantamax forms, in addition to those already known, will be popping up soon.
Be sure to keep track of all the new Pokemon and updates as they come out with our guide below!
Unlike previous games in the series, which featured separate expanded versions such as Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon, Pokemon Sword and Shield allow owners of either Sword or Shield version to enjoy the full contents of both the The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra expansions.
However, because the Pokemon which are included in the Expansion Pass for Pokemon Sword and Shield differ depending on the version, players will need to purchase the Expansion Pass separately for both Pokemon Sword and Shield version if they want to obtain all possible Pokemon without trading.
After your Nintendo Switch has downloaded update 1.1.0, a new option will appear on the Main Menu. By placing the arrow over the
Expansion Pass icon and hitting the A Button to confirm, you can navigate to the Nintendo eShop to purchase the Expansion Pass DLC.
