After the release of Isle of Armor in June, Pokémon Sword and Shield is set to receive another expansion in The Crown Tundra later this year.
The second expansion looks to take place in a snowy mountainous area, while also featuring the new co-op mode where you can team up to tackle Max Raid Battle Dens.
More importantly, there’s a whole wealth of new and old Pokémon being thrown into the mix. So here’s every new and returning monster making its way in The Crown Tundra.
