Pokémon Sword & Shield Isle Of Armor Expansion Hits June 17

When the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass were revealed earlier this year, Game Freak promised to inject two story-based adventures in new areas of the Pokémon world, as well as new and returning Pokémon, into Sword & Shield. While we haven’t received much news since, today, we got a new trailer that gives us a refreshed look at the two expansions that are due this year. 

The Isle of Armor sees you venturing to an island to study at a prestigious Pokémon trainer school under the apprenticeship of former Galar-region champion Mustard. The Crown Tundra casts your trainer in the role of expedition leader as you venture through the snowy landscape and delve deep into a Pokémon Dens to battle myriad Legendary Pokémon from past games, including Galarian forms of the Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. 

In addition to seeing several returning Pokémon roaming the green pastures and desert expanses of the Isle of Armor, we also got a look at Galarian Slowbro and many of the new characters we’ll be encountering, including Klara, Avery, and Mustard. The trailer below also gives us glimpses of Gigantamax Venusaur and Blastoise, as well as new Legendary Pokémon like Kubfu (and its evolved Urshifu forms) and Calyrex.

Check out the new trailer for the Pokémon Sword & Shield expansions below.

Pokémon Sword & Shield: The Isle of Armor is set to release on June 17, while Pokémon Sword & Shield: The Crown Tundra is scheduled for a fall launch. For more on these two expansions, check out an in-depth preview from earlier this year. For more on Pokémon Sword & Shield, head to our review.
