Expansion Pass Discussion Thread - The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC

    So I took the liberty of adding the Isle of Armor map to the Galar map at scale, to see how its size measures up.

    While the area doesn't appear that big in comparison to the Wild Area at first glance, the Isle of Armor is actually far larger. I decided to place the two together in sole units to compare:

    As you can see, the main island alone is nearly the same size in land space as the entire Wild Area. Add the four archipelago sections of the Isle of Armor, and you got an environment nearly twice the size of the Wild Area. Here's a final comparison, of the Wild Area and the Isle of Armor's main island.

    EDIT: For added funsies, I did a comparison of the Wild Area and the four archipelagos.

    More like at least it’s not postponed yet. It can still happen depending on how bad the virus gets in Tokyo. The mini direct even started with a statement of how release dates & info may change due to the Coronavirus

    There are probably several newly-created Pokemon in the passes that have not been revealed. I would just love if they added Galarian variants of Rockruff and Lycanroc that are Ice-types based on Arctic wolves in the Crown Tundra Pack.

    I say the reason it's not likely to be postponed is because a lot of what they do can be done at home.

    From my own experience developing games, you spend a lot of the time doing the work at home. Half the folks I worked with I never even met in person. Besides, The Pokémon Company moves at a tight schedule. They can't really afford to delay content anyway.

    Yet again male customization sucks compared to the females. Females get to dress like Marnie, males get to dress like Rose and get his awful haircut lol
    Hopefully the males at least get bags that aren't suitcases

    Good to hear the original launch date is still on track (for now). Seeing as you get the Gigantamax starters as a reward for your adventure in the Isle of Armour, I'm now wondering whether I should carry on with my current Sword save file and get Gigantamax Rillaboom, or start a new one with Sobble as my starter. The Sobble line are the last Galar Region Pokemon I still don't have registered in Pokemon Home, so it would be a good excuse for a new adventure with a starter I haven't used yet, but at the same time I kind of don't want to play through Sword and Shield's main story again.

    Honestly I don't agree. On my main paythrough I played as a male character, and I found a lot of clothes I liked and changed my look several times. Then I did a side playthrough as a female character and was underwhelmed that a good chunk of the customization is shared and the female-only choices didn't really fit my taste.
    Plus honestly, Rose's outfit isn't bad, classy suit and all. And what other male character's outfit were we supposed to get? Bede's ? :confused: I don't wanna dress in a ugly, pink raincoat...

    While I like the new additions to the League Cards, I was kind of hoping we’d get new poses too

    So glad we finally got an update on this. There wasn't really anything all that new here, but at at least it's something. Also, Gigantamax Inteleon just creeps me out. I wonder if that design was a joke on how ridiculously tall Inteleon is when you Dynamax it.

    Oh, and the best part is we can finally drop the notion that the DLC might be delayed due to the virus.

    Kubfu is fighting type. And if you take on the Tower of Darkness, it’ll become Single Strike Style Urshifu—Fighting /Dark and if take on the Tower of Waters it’ll become Rapid Strike Style Urshifu—Fighting/Water

    I have a feeling that we'll get some trailers about the Isle of Armor within the next few months, leading up to it's release.

    I don't think we'll be seeing anything else prior to mid-May.

    This isn't a full game, but a DLC project. There's less of a need to showcase things. Besides, it's quite apparent they're making a big effort to avoid revealing too much information.

    I myself think we will see a trailer in April. Mid to late imo. We still have so much we don’t know about. Kanto Gmax moves, Urshifu Gmax moves, Urshifu sig moves, Urshifu’s ability description, not to mention any new Galarian forms and the exact release date. I personally would like to see more of the Pokémon returning. Really hoping we get the Johto starters, as I’d love to use a Totodile here, as well as Dragonite and Heracross
