While Pokémon Sword and Shield released on Nintendo Switch more than a year ago, a significant amount of new content for the game appeared in 2020. The Isle of Armor and The crown tundra DLC has expanded the game in a major way, adding new areas to explore, new story content, and new Pokémon to capture. Some of these Pokémon are older favorites, while others are completely new to the franchise. In celebration of the DLC, Nintendo has released a brand new trailer for Sword and shield, which shines a spotlight on the content that players can find as part of the expansion.
The brand new trailer for the game can be found embedded below.

Most games in the main series of the Pokémon franchise have received a ‘third version’ over the years that adds content that was not in the original version. For Pokémon Sword and Shield, The Pokemon Company chose to release a DLC expansion so players already enjoying the game could continue their adventure with their current team. The armor and The crown tundra both have been available for some time, but in the absence of a new Pokémon game, it makes sense to see Nintendo continue to promote the release!
Next year will be the 25th anniversary of Pokémon Red and Greenrelease in 1996. It goes without saying that previously announced games such as New Pokémon Snap and the Nintendo Switch continues on Detective Pikachu can release both next year. It is also possible that the next generation of Pokémon games may also be released. If so, fans are likely to see a full unveiling in the next few months. For now, however, fans will simply have to enjoy the content that is currently available!
Pokémon Sword and Shield is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You can see all our previous coverage of the game here.
