Galarian Moltres

If today's release date news for The Isle of Armor wasn't enough for you, then how about a whole boatload of new info regarding Pokémon Sword and Shield's second DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra?

We'll kick things off with some newly revealed Pokémon, and more details on a few that had been teased previously. First up, two new 'Regi' Legendaries will be joining the ranks:

As reported by Serebii, the two new Pokémon above are Regieleki and Regidrago, Electric- and Dragon-types respectively. Regieleki has a new ability, Transistor, as well as the move Thunder Cage, which deals damage and traps opponents in a cage for several turns. Regidrago has the new ability Dragon's Maw and the move Dragon Energy.

Moving on, we now have absolute confirmation that the Legendary birds seen in earlier DLC footage are indeed Galarian Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. The new form of Articuno is Psychic/Flying-type, Zapdos is Fighting/Flying-type, and Moltres is Dark/Flying-type.

It has also been revealed that in The Crown Tundra DLC, which is still planned to be released this fall, four players will be able to team up to investigate Dynamax Raid dens in 'Dynamax Adventure'.

On top of this, a new feature called the Galarian Star Tournament will take place in Wyndon. Here, you'll be able to join various characters from Sword and Shield in Multi Battles.

Parts 1 and 2 of the Expansion Pass can be purchased together for £26.99 / $29.99 and are up for pre-purchase right now on the Switch eShop. New screenshots and official imagery for part one, The Isle of Armor, can be found in our new gallery.
