Pokémon Sword and Shield’s first DLC installment, The Isle of Armor, is receiving new information on June 2 ahead of its release later this month.
As promised, The Pokémon Company will release Part 1 of Sword and Shield’s highly anticipated Expansion Pass. There’s been no announcement for a Pokémon Direct, so fans can expect a new trailer to drop around 9 AM Eastern time. Pokémon series producer Junichi Masuda urges fans to “look forward to it.”
Part 2 of Sword and Shield’s Expansion Pass, The Crown Tundra, is planned for released later this year.
The below tweet translates to, “New information for Nintendo Switch software ‘Pokemon Sword Shield Expansion Pass’ will be announced on Tuesday, June 2 at 10 PM Japan time. Be sure to check it out!”

Currently, Niantic is performing a seven-hour period of server maintenance for Pokémon GO; fans suspect there will be some sort of tie-in with the mobile game and Pokémon HOME, perhaps trade functionality between the two.
