“Lead an expedition in the snow-swept realm of the Crown Tundra and unravel the mystery of the Legendary Pokemon Calyrex who once ruled over it,” reads the official description.
“Through a new form of co-op play, your voyage will even allow you to explore deep within Pokemon Dens, which you could only previously get a glimpse of during Max Raid Battles.
“You may even see Legendary Pokemon from past games Dynamaxing before your eyes, and you’ll be able to catch them!”
Crown Tundra follows on from the Isle of Armor DLC, which takes place in a location made up of beaches, bogs, forests, caves and dunes.
“Take up an apprenticeship under the former Galar Champion, Mustard, who’s also the mentor of Champion Leon!” Nintendo explains.
“Meet new rivals, hone your skills and master new fighting styles with the Legendary Pokemon: Kubfu.
“You’ll also be able to Gigantamax the final Evolution of the partner Pokemon you chose to start your journey with. Look forward to discovering Rillaboom, Cinderace or Inteleon in their new form, and a new G-Max Move to boot!”
