The Pokémon Company has announced the second expansion for Sword and Shield, The Crown Tundra, is coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 22. Alongside the announcement, the company also said its Pokémon Home storage system will be compatible with Pokémon Go.

The Crown Tundra introduces players to a new snowy in-game location with an all-new storyline that sees users capturing every Legendary Pokémon from past games and teaming up with trainers previously met earlier in the game.

Developer Game Freak also announced that the Pokémon Home storage system will finally be compatible with Pokémon Go, allowing one-way transfers from Go to Home. Once a Pokémon is transferred this way, players will be able to open a Mystery Box in Go to catch a wild Meltan. A Melmetal with Gigantamax capabilities will also be gifted in Home, which is the only way to get this Pokémon with a Gigantamax form.

Lastly, Players will also be able to grab a special Pikachu with decorative hats with passwords for Sword and Shield, the first of which is available with the password “P1KACHUGET.” Pokémon Sword and Shield: The Crown Tundra will be available on October 22, and Pokémon Go and Pokémon Home are expected to connect by the end of the year.

In other gaming news, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons edition of the Nintendo Switch is now back in stock.
