Pokemon Sword & Shield are available now exclusively for Nintendo Switch. It was revealed earlier this month that the games will be getting expansion passes, which will add new stories to the game filled with additional content. This marks a first for the series, as Nintendo would previously release updated versions of the games with the additional content. This new method will allow gamers to pick up right where they left of with their save files from the base game. One expansion is the The Isle of Armor, whereas the other is The Crown Tundra. Both include brand new monsters to catch, as well as the return of over 200 previously-released Pokemon. The expansion pass is available now and costs $30, with the first (The Isle of Armor) launching in June and the last (The Crown Tundra) launching in fall.
