The day is finally upon us! If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield‘s The Crown Tundra expansion, you can download it right now! Featuring a few new Legendary Pokémon (plus a ton of returning ones), the Dynamax Adventures feature, and the post-game Galarian Star Tournament, there’s a lot of new things to check out here.
To be able to access the content in the game, you’ll need to update to the latest version. If this download doesn’t start automatically, you can manually update by going into the options menu for the game, and selecting the Software Update option. Once the update is complete, assuming you have the correct Expansion Pass for your game, you’ll receive the Crown Pass in-game. You’ll then want to head to Wedgehurst Station, and from there, you’ll be able to travel to the new area.
In addition to the official release of the expansion, Pokémon Home has also been updated, allowing it to be compatible with The Crown Tundra. Outside of that major change, you’ll also be able to save your searches and sorts, alongside searching through a popular Pokémon section of the GTS. The Pokémon Home maintenance is currently scheduled to end at 12:00am Eastern.
With all this new Sword and Shield content, what are you most looking forward to?
