The first DLC announcement for Pokémon_ and Bouclier occurred at the beginning of 2020 during a direct Pokémon on January 9th. This is the first main Pokémon game to receive any form of DLC, and with it, you can discover new Galar regions with all new adventures, including additional Pokémon. The first DLC of the whole, the island of armor, will be the first to go out and launch the summer for the fans of Pokémon.
It will be available on June 17 for all players. You can choose to buy it the day of its release or pre-order your copy on Nintendo Shop. Buying the expansion card allows you to buy both DLC packs. You must buy the DLC for the appropriate game. For example, if you have Pokémon_, you have to buy the Pokémon_ Expansion Card. If you buy the extension pass for Bouclier, and you have the two, both are not compatible. The extension pass costs $ 30 and includes both the island of armor and tundra's crown. Crown Tundra does not have an exit date for the moment but will come later in 2020.
The island of Armor will include a range of first-generation Pokémon of the Kanto area with new Galarian forms. Not only the most common Pokémon receive Galan forms, but the three legendary birds Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres will receive an appearance updated when they arrive in the Sword and Shield collection.
There will be additional mechanisms to come in the game, like Dynamax Soup. When a Pokémon drinks this meal, it will unlock Gigantamax's ability if it can already dynamax, which means that many Pokémon are about to receive updated character models for their giant shape.
Expect new wild adventures on the island of Armor on June 17 Pepée Pokémon and Bouclier.
