Legendary Pokemon from past generations have finally been added to Pokemon Sword and Shield in the Crown Tundra DLC.

There was uproar when Pokemon Sword and Shield first released and trainers realized that not only was half the National Pokedex missing but that there were zero Legendary Pokemon from the older generations.

It looks like that was all part of a plan however, with their returns coming in the second Sword Shield expansion. It seems to have worked too, as Crown Tundra expansion has been well received from virtually all quarters.

Over the years, and generations, there have been a lot of Legendary Pokemon added to the franchise. So, it should come as little surprise that the list of returning legends is quite long – not that trainers will be complaining.

This is in addition to latest new Legendary species – Calyrex, Glastrier, Regieleki, Regidrago, and Spectrier. Furthermore, the Crown Tundra also brought Galarian forms of the iconic Kanto bird Pokemon.

Fortnite leak hints at Launch Pads return in Season 5

Fortnite seasons are all about doing out with the old and in with the new, but sometimes they bring back relics of the past, and if a recent leak is anything to go by, Launch Pads are set to make a comeback.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 has been an incredible ride since it started back in August. However, now that it’s almost done and dusted, players have been looking forward to the next season.

Like most season changes, it will undoubtedly include all kinds of new bits and pieces. Fortnite players anticipate everything from widespread map changes to new skins, weapons, and of course, battle pass content.

It’s not always about what’s new, either. A new season often includes other changes such as the removal or ‘vaulting’ of past items. For example, in the latest season, Launch Pads were removed for the first time since they were added back in November 2017.

It wasn’t the most significant change by any means, but it changed the landscape of the game to an extent. Launch Pads played a key role in any given game and often dictated the tempo and pacing.

Fortnite players had mixed reactions about Launch Pads. Some felt they provided too much mobility and needed to be nerfed or removed. Others thought they were fine and made the game more interesting.

Either way, a recent leak hints they might be making their way back into the game sooner than expected. 

Fortnite data miner ‘Mang0e’ was digging through the v14.60 game files and found that Launch Pads were in the mix. “It looks like some launch pad assets were added back into the files,” he said.

Keep in mind, though, finding Launch Pads in the files doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be coming back to the game. For all we know, they could feature in an event or LTM.

Still, considering the Unvaulted event has wrapped up and the Launch Pad was nowhere to be found, the leak is a strong indication that their return in Fortnite Season 5 could be on the cards.

In the end, nobody will know for sure until the next season begins. However, it’s an exciting prospect that is bound to change the dynamic of the meta once again.
