New Pokemon Sword And Shield: Crown Tundra Dynamax Adventures Details Revealed

Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s Crown Tundra expansion launches later this week, and new details about the DLC continue to trickle in ahead of its release. We learned some more tidbits about the expansion’s new Dynamax Adventures feature during a recent episode of Japanese show Pokenchi, including how Legendary Pokemon encounters will work.

Dynamax Adventures lets up to four players cooperatively explore Pokemon Raid dens together. As Serebii reports, players will battle three Dynamax Pokemon successively while exploring a Raid den. After each battle, you’ll get to choose which route to take through the den, which will determine which Pokemon you battle along the way. Any HP or PP you lose during a battle will also carry forward, but you’ll have the opportunity to heal your Pokemon by encountering certain characters or finding berries as you explore.

If you successfully defeat all three Dynamax Pokemon, you’ll encounter a Legendary Pokemon at the end of the den. These Legendaries will have a 100% catch rate, meaning you’re guaranteed to capture the Pokemon if you can successfully defeat them. Pokenchi also confirms that you can only catch each Legendary Pokemon once.

The Crown Tundra expansion launches on October 22. It introduces a variety of new content to Sword and Shield, including the eponymous Crown Tundra–an arctic region that’s home to a ton of returning and new Pokemon, including Galarian forms of Slowking and the Legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. There will also be a helpful new item called the Ability Patch, which makes it much easier to get a Pokemon’s Hidden Ability.

Ahead of The Crown Tundra’s release, The Pokemon Company is giving away eight free Pikachu for all Sword and Shield players. Each of these comes wearing one of the different hats that Ash has worn throughout the Pokemon anime. Beyond that, Pokemon Go compatibility is also coming to Pokemon Home by the end of the year, and you’ll receive a free Gigantamax Melmetal in Sword and Shield for transferring a Pokemon from the mobile game.
