The Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass will contain The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra expansions, two separate adventures that will enable fans to meet new characters, catch many newly discovered and returning Pokémon, and explore new areas in the Galar region.

The Isle of Armor is scheduled to be launched by the end of June, and The Crown Tundra in the autumn this year. The Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, which include both sets of content, are available for pre-purchase for $29.99.

Both expansions will include a new area to explore, newly discoverable Pokémon, clothing items, handy features, and more.
