Ranked Battle Series 9 Begins!
Our Tier List has been updated with the latest rules for Ranked Battle Series 9!
Here you can see how to get the new Pokemon from The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra in Pokemon Sword and Shield, without the DLC! If you're not sure you're going to buy the expansion pass but still want to get the new Pokemon, you've come to the right place.
List of Contents
There are currently two known and confirmed ways to get your hands on new Pokemon added with the Expansion packs, Trading and using Pokemon HOME, and we have covered both of them for you here!
According to the Pokemon Direct released January 9, 2020, all players will be able to trade the newly available Pokemon, regardless of whether they have the DLC expansion packs or not!
This is great news for those who want to try out new Pokemon before making that final decision on buying the expansion, but also potentially vital for players who don't want to lose out in Competitive battles.
You'd probably have to get lucky, but some kind trainers out there might send out some of the new Pokemon through Surprise Trade.
Players are also able to move old Pokemon that were added with the expansion to their Sword and Shield game through Pokemon HOME.
Once you've sent over your Pokemon to Pokemon Sword and Shield, you won't be able to send them back to the original game, so keep this in mind before transferring!
Both new and old Pokemon are available in The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra, so there'll be plenty of opportunities to fine-tune your team and get your hands on your favorite Pokemon - New and old alike!
For a full list of Pokemon available in the Base Game and each DLC, check out our guides below! Both will of course get updated as soon as more Pokemon are confirmed, so keep an eye out for all your Pokedex needs. Gotta
catch trade 'em all!
