A Pokemon we have never seen before has seemingly been teased in a brand new Expansion Pass trailer, giving us yet another look at the Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra.

Much of the latest promotional video for the DLC pack would have been recognizable for casual and veteran players at this point, with shots of the surroundings players will soon be able to experience for themselves. Each new update will take us away from the original Galar Region map, to visit two new islands.

The first part of the trailer focused on the Isle of Armor, which we now know lands on June 17 and brings back a number of familiar faces, but the second section of the Expansion Pass due for Fall of this year might well be even more exciting.

New Pokemon revealed for Crown Tundra Expansion Pass?

Nintendo revealed the latest trailer on their official YouTube channel on June 2, 2020, featuring a whole load of new information – no less than that all important release date.

Just like many other players, though, we wanted to take a closer look at each frame of the video and see if any obscure hints were dropped. Much to our surprise, we have potentially found one as well, with a never before seen Pokemon seemingly coming in the Crown Tundra pack.

Look closely at the character’s helmet. That might be a new Pokemon!

As you can see above, there is a chance that the new logo printed onto the helmet of this character is based on an unknown Pokemon.

With months to go until we actually get our hands on the Crown Tundra, this could be the first teaser of a Pokedex expansion as well. We’ll have to wait and see on that front.

That’s not all, either, as other shots from the video showed the logo up close, and as part of outfit sets that will presumably be released alongside the update.

At first glance, it looks like just a new clothing set, but there could be more to it.

Just in case you want to watch it for yourself, here’s the trailer below with the relevant timestamp.

Here, we see – for the very first time – clothing with a logo on their helmets, which could very well be a new Pokemon we meet in the next DLC pack.

There’s a lot more to see than just this possible new species, as well, with a closer look at other Pokemon – which will be included in the Crown Tundra – as well as a number of other interesting tidbits.

So, there we have it! We now know even more about the Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass, thanks to a new trailer from Nintendo.

As soon as we find out more details about this new Pokemon, or potential group of trainers – as it could be a logo – we’ll be the first to let you know! Until then, get ready for the Isle of Armor, because there’s a lot coming up in the near future.

Pokemon leak finally debunks mystery of “unfinished” Kalos region

The mystery of the unfinished story of Pokemon X and Y’s Kalos region has been discussed in the Pokemon community for years. Now a leak appears to have revealed the details, or lack thereof.

With Xerneas and Yveltal getting their own game in the form of Pokemon X and Y, it seemed strange Zygarde didn’t get the same treatment. At one point in time, it was almost a given that Pokemon Z would materialize. Of course, that never happened.

A leak has seemingly revealed that a sequel to the Gen 6 game was planned but ultimately canceled. The reason for this remains unknown.

It was initially posted on 4chan and picked up on by Lewtwo. “There were reservations in place for a second pair of games to be based in Kalos,” the PokeYoutuber shared on Twitter.

Interestingly, the code revealed apparent reservations for two new games. This suggests they could have been called Pokemon X2/Y2, much like Black 2 and White 2.

Pokemon X and Y never got the finish it deserved and now we know why…

Kalos in Pokemon Sword and Shield

The unfinished nature of the game had trainers speculating for years as to when the story would be finished. It seemed to be all part of the Pokemon Company’s grand plan but it looks like fans of the franchise gave the creators too much credit for their forward-thinking.

With Pokemon Sword and Shield being based on the UK, and Kalos being France, it seemed believable that the two games would intertwine. That never happened in the initial release and has yet to happen in either of the released DLCs.

This leak doesn’t mean that the Pokemon Company doesn’t intend on finishing the story, but it does mean there’s a chance it will go down as one of Pokemon’s great mysteries. After all, just because they canceled plans for a Pokemon X and Y sequel, doesn’t mean they have no intention to use the story at some point in the future.

Given the leak though, that may be a little optimistic. It looks like the unusable Couriway Train Station and matching caves between Kalos and Galar were just a coincidence. Or were they?
