Despite all the new quality of life changes, long-term events and visual fidelity, Pokemon Sword and Shield has proved to be one of the most controversial entries in the series. That’s largely due to one key aspect of the game, the Pokedex. For various reasons, Sword and Shield is the first core Pokemon game that doesn’t include every single monster out of the box. It’s also the first to sport DLC, which has filled many of those holes alongside the story expansions. Soon, the Crown Tundra DLC will launch, and the dataminers are doing their thing.

List of Pokemon Returning to Sword and Shield via Crown Tundra

Pokemon Sword and Shield’s DLC comprises two substantial expansions, the first one being Isle of Armor. The first expansion added many Pokemon to the list, alongside its other new content. Crown Tundra is up next, set to come out sometime this fall. Thanks to some data added to the game’s backend via recent updates, the Pokemon community (in this case Bulbapedia) has uncovered the full list of additional Pokemon.

As usual, this information should be taken with a grain of salt, like many leaks. Even if this ends up being accurate when the time comes, there’s always a chance changes will happen. That being said, here are some of the Pokemon that have a pretty good chance of showing up in Sword and Shield after Crown Tundra drops:
