New legendaries.

Pokemon Sword & Shield: The Crown Tundra will release on October 22, 2020, with a bundle containing the base game(s) and their expansion passes releasing on November 6, 2020.

The Crown Tundra has a whole bunch of new features and goodies available for players. The second area unlocked for the expansion pass will have Legendary Pokemon from the past games to collect, and a lot of them will be available when players go on their Dynamax Adventures. 

After adventuring in the Tundra, players will be able to participate in the Galarian Star Tournament, which will allow other trainers that the player has met throughout the game to come back. Players can pick a partner from the trainers they've faced in Pokemon SwordShield, along with the game's expansion passes. Depending on who the player chooses to fight alongside, they might get to know them a little better as well.

There are also special Pikachu coming to players. Players will be able to get Ash's Pikachu wearing eight different caps, with them becoming available once a specific password it used. The first password for the first Pikachu is P1KACHUGET, with the Pikachu wearing the cap from the first series in the Pokemon anime.

The Crown Tundra, Pokemon Sword Shield's second and last DLC, will release on October 22, 2020. There will also be a bundle combining Pokemon Sword and Shield and their respective DLC packs available on November 6.
