Following the launch of Pokémon Sword & & Shield last year, Game Freak announced the Growth Pass, appealing 2 new story- driven growths for the first all-new Pokémon RPGs on the Switch. The first growth, The Island of Armor, was an enjoyable addition to the mainline story, however had plenty of problems that made it less remarkable than the basegame With the second part of the Growth Pass, The Crown Tundra, Game Freak and The Pokémon Company wish to provide the more interesting content players yearn for. I was offered the chance to see more than thirty minutes of video footage and find out about the soon- to-be-released second growth.
One of my main criticisms of the Island of Armor was that it felt practically aimless in how it provided thestory You were offered a loose story while you embarked on a series of bring quests, however eventually, the story felt rare at best, just serving to press you through the ordinary missions on the way to the final encounters. On the other hand, the Crown Tundra is more story- centric than the Island of Armor, and offers you a couple of various quests to embarkon You start out on an adventure with Peony, a former Galar gym leader, as you find out about Dynamax Adventures and work to reveal the secrets of the new Legendary Pokémon Calyrex and its impact on thearea On top of those stories, you also have the mission of knowing more about and fighting the Galarian variations of the Legendary bird trio from the first- gen games: Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.
Players can access the Crown Tundra as soon as they reach Wedgehurst in Sword & & Shield’smain story When you take a trip to the Crown Tundra, your Pokédex updates with the extra animals found in the area and you satisfy the eccentric Peony, who is tailoring up for an exploration into Pokémon dens to find the Legendary Pokémon hidden in the Galarregion You take a trip to the town of Freezington, situated in the west of theCrown Tundra There, you experience Calyrex. The video footage cuts out, however Peony comes running out, stating he heard abattle Calyrex wastes little time, having Peony and speaking through him and setting the player up for the quest surrounding the new Legendary monster.
From there, the video footage I’m enjoying leaps to the second adventure, which focuses on the Galarian kinds of the Legendary birds. This quest, called A Legendary Tree of a Legendary 3, begins with a cutscene around a giant, pink tree. Zapdos and moltres break out into a fight, before Articuno crashes theparty The Pokémon long, they understand you’re enjoying, and they distribute to various parts of the Legendary. how Company compares the approaches Legendary coming across the in trio to region you experienced the
