PokÃ©mon Sword and Shield: The Isle of Armor expansion
PokÃ©mon Sword and Shieldâ€™s first expansion will take place in a new area in the Galar region. It expands on the gameâ€™s story and adds a new gym for players to battle. It also adds the new Galarian forms of PokÃ©mon. The trailer presents Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Slowbro in Galarian form.
As one might expect, the expansion adds new PokÃ©mon to the Pokedex. The trailer shows off some popular PokÃ©mon, including Exeggutor, Tauros, Poliwag, and some others. There will be new Legendary PokÃ©mon to track down, which is one of the most exciting aspects of any PokÃ©mon game.
There are also tweaks and new features coming to the game thatâ€™ll alter the overall experience of playing PokÃ©mon Sword and Shield. Thereâ€™s a device called the Cram-o-Matic, which allows players to stick four items into it and receive a new item. There are also new moves called Tutor Moves coming to the game. Max Soup is a unique item thatâ€™s made with rare ingredients. With it, certain PokÃ©mon can unlock the ability to Gigantamax.
