Isle of Armor will take Gigantimax form of all three final evolutionary starter Pokemon ̵1; Rillaboom, Cinderace and Inteleon, adding powerful new G-Maxs to their skillset. You can check out the new Gigantamax Forms in our Pokemon Sword and Shield Wiki. Isle of Armor will also add Pokemon that didn’t appear in the main game, such as Azurill and Chansey. A series of new Pokemon are being brought into the game throughout the expansion of the Pass, including new legends such as Kubfu, Urshifu and Calyrex.
You can check out a huge range of new screenshots from Expansion Pass in the gallery below:

We’re still to find out about the release date for The Crown Tundra, the frozen second raising pack announced in January.
The passage of the expansion marked a new step for the Pokémon franchise – preferring to release new versions of the same game, or semi-sequels. We think this is a very good next step. We have offered Pokemon Sword and Shield a 9.3 review, and have since been named one of the best Nintendo Switch games.
