New trailer for The Crown Tundra

Pokémon Sword & Shield — 29 September, 2020

A new video has been released, providing more information on the upcoming Sword & Shield DLC, The Crown Tundra. The release date has been announced as October 22nd. For those that do not have Sword/Shield yet, a new bundle can be purchased with both the original game and EP being on the same cart; it will be released November 6th.

Every legendary from previous games will be available, the majority of which appear to be found in Pokémon Dens and can be battled in Max Raid Battles. Also announced was the Galarian Star Tournament where you can team up with notable trainers from Galar in a multi-battle tournament.

A new item, Ability Patch was revealed via the official site, which allows changing a Pokémon's ability to its Hidden Ability.

We also caught a glimpse of Galarian Slowking! Look out for it during the trailer or see the artwork below. Galarian Slowking has a new ability, Curious Medicine which resets all Pokémon's stat changes when it enters battle; and a new move Eerie Spell which deals damage and reduces the opponent's PP by 3.


Ash's Pikachu (with hats) are also available to obtain via Mystery Gift passwords. The first ones are for Original Cap Pikachu and Partner Cap Pikachu, and have the codes P1KACHUGET and 1CH00SEY0U respectively (those are ones and zeros in there).

Pokémon GO to HOME connectivity has been confirmed. It appears to work just like sending a Pokémon to the Let's Go games, and gives access to the Mystery Box in GO, which spawns Meltan. A Mystery Gift will also be received of Gigantamax-capable Melmetal. This feature will be available before the end of 2020.
