Trainers are eagerly anticipating news about the next Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC, The Crown Tundra. While nothing official has been revealed, it looks like a new trailer for the expansion has been leaked.

The location of the trailer is somewhat strange as it appeared on the “Nintendo South Africa Distributor” YouTube account. It is an account run by Core Gaming System which are the official distributor of Nintendo products in South Africa.


The trailer itself doesn’t show anything we weren’t expecting to feature in the icy region. Instead, it seemingly recaps all the exciting additions that have been previously teased.

The 30-second long trailer can be watched below.


It features the likes of Calyrex, a new Legendary ‘mon from the Crown Tundra, and a short clip of temples where you can find the Regi Pokemon. It also shows the Crown Tundra is more than just snow and ice, with various different habitats.

This is in addition to the influx of new Pokemon. The Galar region may not have the National Pokedex available, at least just yet, but it is certainly getting closer.

Release date

The trailer finishes by indicating the Crown Tundra DLC will release in Autumn 2020. However, this is something we already knew.


A September release date is becoming increasingly unlikely, so October and November seem the most likely months we can expect it to drop. However, there are rumors it could release on October 23.

A third Sword Shield DLC?

We shouldn’t get too far ahead of ourselves given the Crown Tundra release date hasn’t even been revealed yet. Even so, the rumor mill is constantly running in the world of Pokemon.

Trainers are already discussing what we can expect in 2021 and beyond. Alongside a brand new game (at least we’d hope) there are rumors of a third Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC.


In the meantime though, trainers will have plenty to do when the Crown Tundra DLC does release.


Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.


That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!


Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.


While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.


So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.


Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Snivy would seemingly be the leading contender for the November CD…

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.


Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
