    The Pokemon Company has given us new footage for the latest additions slated to be added to Pokemon Sword and Shield's The Crown Tundra DLC pack. In this new area, you'll get to explore a snowy part of Galar, which contains many legendary Pokemon, in fact, every old legendary is available to catch. You'll find them in Dynamax Adventures. You can team up with up to 4 players to explore caves with lots of rare Pokemon.

    There's also a new Galarian Star Tournament, where you'll take on the best trainers in pairs, through double battles with a partner.

    The Crown Tundra launches October 22nd, while a physical pack in edition containing the game plus the DLC on cart will launch on November 6th.

    Passwords will be revealed on the Pokemon site to give you special Pikachu, like ones with Ash's hat. Enter PIKACHUGET to get a free Pikachu in Sword and Shield.

    Pokemon Home is getting a new update to allow you to move Meltan to Sword and Shield, as well as other creatures caught in Pokemon Go. This update will go live before the end of the year, and players will get a Gigantamax Melmetal.

    All old legendary pokemon is a nice touch, though I still don't like that they're creating the trend of adding catchable pokemon as DLC.

    That Bump of Chicken song was super random, but also super nice.

    Who actually cares, pokemon got boring ages ago, now they cant be arsed to design them, they look daft.

    Sure they just have a randomiser and with click of a button it generates a new pokemon.

    That's J-Pop you heathen! There's a difference, I swear! Honestly though, that video was fantastic imo. With Studio Bones behind the animation, I can't say I'm surprised.

    Legendarinos just don't strike the fancy as much as they used to - there's already so many "almighty mythical creatures" in Pokemon lore that a couple more will just turn it into full SMT mode, lol

    Back in my time you would go through epic quests and wonderfull adventures to get Legendaries at the peak of each's story. Now you just need to open your wallet and voilá.

    I mean, personally I didn't feel like Sword/Shield itself warranted a full $60 game. It was fun, sure, but not $60 of fun. So having to pay to add to that just makes me not wanna play it.
