The Isle of Armor will bring Gigantimax forms of all three final evolution starter Pokemon – Rillaboom, Cinderace and Inteleon, adding powerful new G-Max moves to their skillset. You can check out the new Gigantamax Forms in our Pokemon Sword and Shield Wiki. The Isle of Armor will also add in Pokemon that did not appear in the main game, such as Azurill and Chansey. A series of new Pokemon will also be brought to the game across the Expansion Pass, including new legendaries such as Kubfu, Urshifu and Calyrex.
You can check out a huge set of new screenshots from the Expansion Pass in the gallery below:

We’re still yet to learn about the release date for The Crown Tundra, the frosty second expansion pack which was revealed back in January.
The expansion pass marks a new step for the Pokemon franchise – which has previously preferred to release new versions of the same game, or semi-sequels. We think this is a very good next step. We awarded Pokemon Sword and Shield a 9.3 review, and since named it one of the best Nintendo Switch games.
