The Pokemon Company has shared many new details about Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s upcoming expansions, The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra. Each expansion will introduce a variety of additional Pokemon to the games, including some brand-new Legendaries and alternate forms.
In Isle of Armor, Galarian Slowpoke will be able to evolve into Galarian Slowbro. Unlike a standard Slowbro, this Galar-exclusive variant is a Poison/Psychic type that can learn a special move called Shell Side Arm, which fires poisonous liquid from the Shellder that’s clamped down on its arm. Galarian Slowbro also has a new Ability called Quick Draw, although no details have been shared about that yet.
Gigantamax Venusaur and Blastoise
Kanto starters Venusaur and Blastoise will gain Gigantamax forms in Isle of Armor. Like other Gigantamax Pokemon, each will have its own exclusive G-Max move. Gigantamax Venusaur’s attack, G-Max Vine Lash, damages non-Grass-type foes for four turns. Gigantamax Blastoise, meanwhile, is able to use G-Max Cannonade, which similarly damages non-Water-type opponents for four turns.
