The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread

Isle of Armor was in the afternoon though wasn't it?
Depends on your timezone, I suppose. I'm EST, so for me, releases are typically in the evening.

I always mess up time zones. I'm in the Midwest so generally a nice release time.

I really hope it isn't too late at night. I have to walk over to me sister's to download the update.

Wish they made more clarification on the specific time of release.

^ I know right I was hoping it would come out earlier since I have a day off from work today.

Can't wait to play! It's SO CLOSE!

I'm coming around to the idea of using "rental" Pokemon for the Raids. It'll really let the character designs for Pokemon shine. Hopefully some will have special egg moves like the Radiant Pokemon and certain Pokemon in Raid Dens have. But I'm good with just Lvl up movesets. Bring it on!

Pokemon with Healer or Leaf Guard abilities will have utility. Aromatherapy, Life Dew, Pollen Puff, Heal Pulse, Safeguard, Screens will be valuable. I love it! Synergies like Toxic + Venom Drench could extend across 2 Pokemon you encounter; Lightning Rod + Electrify.... It'll be worth it when stuff like that comes together because you're talking with your friends or notice an NPC picks a Pokemon that can work well with your pick or vice versa. I think it'll let natural Pokemon design SHINE!

Also, I'll be the happiest trainer if I ever find a Rest + Snore Dedenne in a den to use against a Legendary. Because that's what Dedenne do!

Has anyone decided on who they’re going to pair up with for the Galarian Star Tournament yet?

Right now the three main choices I’m thinking of are Hop, Bede, & Marnie since they basically become your best friends during the main campaign, but I’m not sure if I want to team up with someone else like Bea or Raihan. Plus, if they surprise us by making Sonia an option, I may try battling with her just to see what other pokémon she’s have besides Yamper

Is it confirmed if anyone has received the update yet. I've been checking all day and not one update on my switch console yet
You don't need to keep asking. Keep checking the website or the thread if you need to be up to the minute, and there's zero doubt someone or Serebii will update as the various patches, versions, and the DLC itself go live.

Oohh sorry. Synchronizing a european clock with other timezones for events like this has always been a hassle with setting a countdown timer on my phone.

I have a question. Is it possible to join in on legendary raids in the new update even if you don't have it (similar to how you can join in on max raid battles against creatures that were released in the isle of armor)

It's likely that since the legendaries won't be in standard raids, they will require the dlc to participate. But the pokemon themselves will be tradeable regardless

I don't believe the Legendary Raids are Max Raids - what we know would suggest that Dynamax Adventures are a separate mechanic entirely, and not the sort of thing you can access from outside The Crown Tundra.

Once caught, the Legendaries can be passed around via standard means.

Apparently you can. You can join in raids of version exclusive legendaries. You can only catch one legendary of each per game though. As in, let's say you've caught Lugia before. You can join in someone else's Lugia raid but can't catch it. You can catch and keep a non-legendary from that run though and any reward items.

EDIT: Misunderstood the question, no you need the update, but can join version exclusive raids of the other version.

One thing I am curious about is how the CT area connects to Galar? Will we get there by train+bird like we did with the first dlc area?

Well, where I live, Pokémon HOME is under maintenance until midnight, where I will go wild on importing my 3DS Pokémons to breed them in my Shield version. I have over 180 Mons that need to be bred so they can have eggs that originate from the Switch, most of them being in Safari Balls... so adding more Pokémons to breed... Thanks goodness it only costs 500$ and that I have a Pikachu with Pay Day, giving me at least 100$ per wild Pokémon fight :p

It just started maintenance on my end. And Unown is still impossible to get.

Maintenance started. Ends at midnight. So I guess the DLC doesn't proc until sometime afterward? Or in the middle? Idk.

Maintenance is going until 11pm on my end. Hopefully CT drops in the meantime perhaps?
 

Auraninja

Try to understand.
I think it will be released before midnight EST.

We would be treading into 23rd territory if it became midnight.

I think sometime during maintenance is when we'll get it.
