Pokemon Sword and Shield’s upcoming Crown Tundra Expansion will not only introduce new creatures to the series, it will also see the return of many fan-favorites. Here’s all the leaked Pokemon that will be available. 

Game Freak disappointed many fans when they announced that Pokemon Sword and Shield’s National Dex would not be expanded upon. As a result, many iconic Pokemon didn’t make the cut. After all, including every single critter from each generation is a monumental task, especially when the series is now home to 892 unique monsters. 

While the latest Isle of Armor expansion helped alleviate this issue, it still failed to bring back a large number of Pokemon. Fortunately, the upcoming Crown Tundra DLC aims to further alleviate the missing ‘mon problem. If you want to know which pocket monsters will be obtainable in the Crown Tundra, then check out all the details below.  


When does the Crown Tundra release?

Pokemon fans won’t need to wait long before they can explore the snow-filled landscapes of the Crown Tundra.

The Crown Tundra was previously given a generic “Fall 2020” release window, but the official Nintendo website states that the Crown Tundra expansion is scheduled for release by 11/30/2020. It certainly looks as though we won’t have to wait too much longer.

The Crown Tundra aims to bring back plenty of returning Pokemon.

According to a recent leak, the Crown Tundra will see the return of 119 Pokemon. This leak comes via Bulbapedia’s Acting Head of Games, @abcboy101 who found dex entries for each Pokemon in Sword and Shield’s game files. 

These Pokemon dex entries were previously left blank by Game Freak, but the v1.2.0 update saw a number of changes that suggested the dev team were getting ready to put them into the game. Of course, these returning Pokemon could still change before Crown Tundra’s release, so bear that in mind before reading the leaked list below.

Crown Tundra will certainly have plenty of old favorites for fans to catch.

It’s important to remember that this list does not include Legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo, Mew, Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion. These Pokemon already have dex entries in Sword and Shield and can be traded via Pokemon HOME. 

However, the most notable entries here are that of Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres (Galarian forms), Lugia, Ho-Oh, Palkia, Dialga, Giratina, and the Gen 3 Legendaries. All of these Pokemon were previously featured alongside other Legendary ‘mons in the Crown Tundra trailer, so it certainly helps add a little credibility to this leak.
