Isle of Armor coming June 17 to Pokémon Sword & Shield

In a trailer released earlier today, Nintendo have showcased gameplay and confirmed the release date of Pokémon Sword & Shields first expansion, the Isle of Armor. The DLC will be launching across the globe on June 17. Below you’ll find a trailer showing off the details.

We’ve got Galarian Slowbro.

With the recent announcement that something was indeed coming Nintendo have delivered on that promise today. The 3 minute trailer showcases a lot of stuff, but here are the main details according to Polygon, who got a statement straight from Nintendo:

Cram-o-matic — The dojo on the Isle of Armor houses a unique take on recycling in the form of a device called the Cram-o-matic. If players feed it four items, it will combine them and give out a new item in exchange. Trainers can receive any of a variety of items, including Poké Balls, PP Ups, and more. Some combinations might even produce rare items.

Tutor Moves — Completely new tutor moves will also be available on the Isle of Armor. Trainers can have their Pokémon learn them in exchange for Armorite Ore, a substance that can be found on the Isle of Armor through Max Raid Battles and other means. Burning Jealousy is a new Fire-type move that can be taught starting with these expansions. When it hits, it deals damage to all opposing Pokémon and burns all opposing Pokémon that have had their stats boosted during the turn. Grassy Glide is a new Grass-type move that can be taught starting with these expansions. This move has high priority when used on Grassy Terrain.

Max Soup — Max Soup is a special dish made from rare ingredients you can gather on the Isle of Armor. If a Pokémon with great hidden potential drinks Max Soup, it will become a special Pokémon capable of Gigantamaxing.Some Pokémon that Trainers are already traveling with may also gain the ability to Gigantamax.
