Thursday, January 9th, was an exhilarating day for the Pokemon community. The reason for this excitement is the official reveal of the Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra expansions for the titles of Sword and Shield. These new expansions will be introducing a treasure trove of new content for players to experience. One of the most significant pieces of new content will be all of the legendary characters that will either be making their debut or will be making a return from past games in Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra. Fortunately, we have all of the currently known legendary creatures for the Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra expansions covered for you. 

Isle of Armor Legendary Pokemon

Kubfu

 Isle of Armor Legendary Pokemon

Players who dive into the adventures that the Isle of Armor expansion will provide will come across Kubfu, who is a Fighting-type character that is ready to throw down. This Isle of Armor brawler has an organ that produces fighting energy and lives in mountainous areas away from the Galar region, where Sword and Shield take place. 

Urshifu

 Isle of Armor Legendary Pokemon

Players will be able to see Kubfu evolve into the Isle of Armor legendary Pokemon of Urshifu after their Kubfu has undergone sufficient training. One of the unique aspects of Urshifu is that this Isle of Armor character has two distinct styles that determine which type it is. Urshifu's Single-Strike Style makes the creature a Fighting and Dark-type, while its Rapid-Strike Style makes the character a Fighting and Water-type. Both of these forms for this Isle of Armor legendary Pokemon have Gigantamax forms.

Crown Tundra Legendary Pokemon

Calyrex

 Crown Tundra Legendary Pokemon

Calyrex is one of the new legendaries that will be available in the Crown Tundra expansion. This powerful Crown Tundra Pokemon is said to have ruled over the Galar region in ancient times and is a Psychic and Grass-type. It is highly intelligent and can supposedly see past, present, and future events.
