Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos Galar-forms and more new Legendaries from ‘Pokemon Sword and Shield’ Expansion Pass revealed

Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass reveals a slew of brand-new Legendary Pokemon — including the Galar forms of Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos.

The Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass, announced earlier this morning via Nintendo Direct will feature brand-new evolutions, characters, over 200 Pokemon from previous games on two new island locales (The Crown Tundra and the Isle of Armor), new forms for the legendary bird trio from Generation I and even the person who trained Leon, the vaunted champion of the Galar region (before your character came along).

Here’s a quick look at some of the new Legendary Pokemon from the stream:

Kubfu and Urshifu (Fighting)
