Pokémon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra: Returning Pokémon and the Crown Tundra Pokédex explained

Every past generation Pokémon returning in the Crown Tundra DLC.

The Crown Tundra DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield gives you a new Pokédex to help you record which Pokémon you encounter in the mountainous southern region of Galar.

This Pokédex works exactly like the Isle of Armor Pokédex by being completely separate from the main Galar Pokédex, but will contain entries for any Pokémon you might have already encountered.

Your new Pokédex will record all the Pokémon that have returned from past generations, alongside new legendary additions to Gen 8 and new Galarian forms.

How to unlock the Crown Tundra Pokédex in Pokémon Sword and Shield

If you want to complete the Crown Tundra Pokédex, you first need to get your Galar Pokédex updated. Luckily, this is a very simple process and occurs when you first start your adventure in the Crown Tundra.

When you first reach the Crown Tundra Station, you'll be approached by a Pokémon researcher. She'll update your Pokédex, adding the Crown Tundra Dex, and will evaluate your Crown Tundra Dex if you talk to her again.

The Crown Tundra Pokédex by opening your Pokédex and then selection that specific Dex you wish to view.

Every past generation Pokémon you can find in the Crown Tundra DLC

There are 123 Pokémon from past generations returning in the Crown Tundra DLC and the majority appear in this region's special Pokédex.

Below you'll find the complete list, arranged in National Dex order, of all the Pokémon that have returned from past generations in the Crown Tundra.

Pokémon Crown Tundra Pokédex: Every Pokémon you find in the second part of the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass

There are 210 Pokémon in the Crown Tundra Pokédex and it should be noted that many of the legendary Pokémon, such as Suicune, that you can catch in the Dynamax Adventures do not appear in this Pokédex.

This means you, while you can catch these Pokémon, you can't read their Pokédex entry whenever you like.

Still, there's a variety of Pokémon from the previous generation, new legendaries and new Galarian forms for you to collect.

Here is the Crown Tundra Pokédex:
