Much like Pokémon Sword and Shield’s first DLC, The Isle of Armor, the newest expansion, The Crown Tundra, has many fun and fresh features. In this snowy landscape, you can find new Pokémon dens, the Galarian Star tournament, Ability Patches, new moves, and every single legendary Pokémon from previous titles
Along with everything just mentioned, The Crown Tundra has brought back 119 fan favourite Pokémon, added five brand new Pokémon, and also four new Galarian forms of existing monsters. Unsurprisingly, most of the new additions are legendaries that will join the enormous roster The Crown Tundra has included in the DLC.
If you have kept up with the trailers Nintendo has released during the build-up to The Crown Tundra, you should be familiar with most of the Pokémon below. But, Nintendo always has a couple of tricks up its sleeve. Some of the Pokémon making their debut in The Crown Tundra have never been seen before prior to the release of the DLC.
Without further ado, let’s get into the list of all the brand new Pokémon you can expect to encounter in The Crown Tundra DLC.
