As you can see on the images above, taken from the official Pokemon YouTube channels, Crown Tundra is set to release on different dates in Europe, Asia, and the US.

If we go by EST, the earliest US timezone, there is a 5 hour window where America is on the 22nd and Europe and Asia is on the 23th, meaning that the DLC might release between 7 PM and midnight EDT.

The previous DLC, The Isle of Armor, was released at 13:00 UTC on June 17th, 2020.

Pokemon HOME Update?

In the previous DLC update for The Isle of Armor, there was a planned maintenance for Pokemon HOME to make it possible to transfer Pokemon that became available in the update.

Chances are this will happen again for Crown Tundra and give us a hint of when the game releases. Previously, the maintenance was from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM UTC and the game itself released 1 PM UTC, giving just an hour in-game before HOME could be used with the DLC.

Since the feature to transfer Pokemon was added back then, we imagine the maintenance will be shorter this time around.

Pokemon Presents?

On the release of The Isle of Armor, there was a Pokemon Presents video broadcast that went live at the same time as the game. If another Presents video is announced before Crown Tundra launches, it will probably be another hint for the exact release time!
