Keep the adventure going with your existing Pokémon Shield save data and jump into this new expansion to Pokémon Shield! With the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, you'll be able to enjoy both The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra as they're released
The Isle of Armor - The first new adventure unlocked by the Expansion Pass will take place on the Isle of Armor, an island of the Galar region. Many Pokémon make this island their home, living freely amid the lush nature. The island is also home to a dojo for Pokémon battles.
Players and their Pokémon will train hard to become stronger under Mustard, the master of this dojo.
The Crown Tundra - The second area unlocked by the Expansion Pass is the snow-swept realm of the Crown Tundra. In this frigid yet beautiful landscape-with its jagged winter mountains and shining, silvery landscape-people live in small communities where they support and rely on one another.
A man named Peony will appoint the player as the leader of his exploration team in the Crown Tundra and task them with investigating the reaches of this frozen land. Players will also be able to explore the depths of the Pokémon Dens seen during Max Raid Battles.
What’s more, it seems several previously unseen Legendary Pokémon make the Crown Tundra their home.
If you purchase the Pokémon Shield + Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, you'll get some in-game apparel as a bonus
