Pokémon Sword and Shield The Crown Tundra expansion due October

Cold shoulder.

Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion The Crown Tundra comes out 23rd October 2020 (or 22nd October in North America). It lets players capture every legendary Pokémon that's ever appeared in the main series, The Pokémon Company announced today.

Some will be exclusive to specific versions, however, meaning you'll need both Sword and Shield's expansion pass (or a friend with the other version) to complete your collection.

New versions of Pokémon Sword and Shield with the games' expansion pass included will be sold from 6th November.

The Crown Tundra is the second half of the Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion pass, and follows June's The Isle of Armor expansion. The video below goes into more detail:

Meanwhile, there's a new physical bundle that includes either Pokémon Sword or Shield and both DLCs. That's out 6th November.
