The Isle of Armor

Release date: June 2020

The Isle of Armor contains a dojo in which you become an apprentice under Mustard, a master who was formerly a Pokemon Champion himself. You will train with Klara in Sword or Avery in Shield when exploring this previously-unseen region.

Legendary Pokemon Kubfu will be entrusted upon you. Once you complete your training, it will evolve into Urshifu with two different styles you can choose for it to take.



The Crown Tundra

Release date: Fall 2020

This uncharted region of the Galar region sees small communities spread across the harsh landscape. With exploration at its core, you will be able to co-op play in this region and find all of the previous generation's legendary Pokemon through dungeons as well as new forms of old favourites.

Calyrex, a Legendary Pokemon with graceful movements, will be the unique Legendary from this adventure.


It won't just be Legendary Pokemon you find here, as over 200 Pokemon from previous games will return through this expansion.

The Crown Tundra will also bring further customisation options for players.
